Focus
I’ve been focusing on my eating schedule and it’s been working! I have so much energy that it’s motivating me to keep going. This week I’m also implementing a new strength training plan which I am excited about!

Fitness
My busy season at work kicked off and I am still adjusting, so work has been crazy! My workouts are my time to catch my breath and refresh, which helps me motivated. This week is going to be busy again with meetings so I took some time to plan out my workouts today.
