Flying Over Los Angeles

My husband and I have just sold our gym in Sioux Falls, SD where we have lived for 2 years and moved back to Los Angeles where we grew up. As I was flying on the airplane descending into Los Angeles I thought to myself….this is the first day of the rest of my life!

So let me define what this means to me.

When we started our gym 2 years ago, I was  a person that was scared to live. I didn’t want to make a move in fear that I would not do the right thing, when in reality, I wasn’t going anywhere at all by living like this.

I started to slowly step out of my little box and take myself out of my comfort zone. If I was going to be an example to my clients, I had to be the best I could be. The more I started to grow the more I wanted to grow. The fear subsided and I was looking at the world in a new light. I was no longer in fear, I was in control. My workouts became more intense and I got stronger physically, mentally and emotionally. I wanted to explore more out of my comfort zone.  Consequently, the more I did the more I accomplished and the more confident I became.

January 10th, 2011 was the first day of the rest of my life because I am actually living life. I feel that the world is at my fingertips and I can accomplish anything with the right mind set and hard work! So, I challenge you to live your life to the fullest, step out of your comfort zone in your gym, your job, and your life and live the first day of the rest of your life!

  1. I try to live my life to the fullest…. but I know it would be “fuller” with you in sioux falls, sd!! We miss you here!

  2. See, now that’s something I never really knew about you….I always thought you were this amazing, confident, inspiring, tough woman that had a heart unlike any other I’ve known. I was very much in your same position when I first met you and Chris. And in the last year and a half, you’ve helped me realize that I can be who I am, personally, and grow stronger and healthier every day, physically, with commitment and dedication. Great post, Annie!

  3. Well put! I feel everyday is a new adventure and do my best to live it to the FULLEST! Life is very precious. Surround it will great people and memories. Its all about Feeding Your Soul!
