When the going get's tough....

Happy New Year to you all!  

It's about time that we all get real, here.  It's a new year, after all. Time to break it all down...life...goals...failures...achievements.  It's time to reflect. 

At least...that is what I save January for...REFLECTION!

It's also a time to "GET SERIOUS" - and boy do I ever mean that. 

I am going to be starting my own personal FITNESS JOURNEY....it will be honest...emotional...raw...and most importantly-- real.  I know what I have to do...what I NEED to do...and what I will struggle to achieve.  It's not a DIET- because those are STUPID!!!  This is about being fit, being healthy, and finding a happy medium.  I refuse to stop enjoying life, but I also refuse to keep on feeling the guilt, the moods and the self conscious feelings that 2017 consumed me with.  I want to feel great...which happens on both the INSIDE and the OUTSIDE. 

Today marks the beginning to the "New & Improved" Kel Amstutz. I will video blog...I will take pictures of things that may or may not interest you...but I will do this.  I hope you might find interest along the way, so that we can build a community of sorts, a place to lean on one-another and keep striving to the goals ahead. 

So....HAPPY 2018... #letsdothis

Note: I am starting my journey---Officially---today, Tuesday, January 9, 2018 - but I am 9 WHOPPING days into this year and have not had 1 single POP since January 1st. #truestory  This is an achievement for me- because it has been a long while since I have not "cheated" myself and snuck one here or there. #achievementnumberone 

My first resolution was to CUT OUT POP- so, naturally, I binged up until MIDNIGHT on January 1st and then it was NO MORE!!! I even dumped the 2 liter we had left in the fridge after letting it sit there for a few days. #gome
