What life are you living?

I am not feeling 100% today, and am working from home. I did get up at 5.30am, and follow the usual routine of Meal 1, check e-mails, cardio at the gym, and home for breakfast all by 7.45am. I have been slightly fatigued and very stiff, with particularily tight and crunchy traps and headachy for a few days now. This happens from time to time and I usually lay low for a few days and then charge forward again.

I am not sure who first called me "Wonder Woman", but it was quite a few years ago now as people looked at all the things that I did and wondered how I not only got them all done, but was successful as well. The answer to "how" is massive amounts of energy, an unstopable desire to make the most of my time in the world, precision timing and sacrifice. Keeping this cracking pace up has made me tired and I don't want to fall into fatigue and "tired woman's syndrome"- so after many months of deliberation I have decided that I need to answer my question of "what life am I living?" and live the life I was meant to.

I made a pact with myself about 11 years ago that I will always be true to who I am. Some people call me crazy others call me fearless; however I can honestly tell you that I am the person I was born to be. That person is a strong (physically and emotionally) women, with complete belief in wellness and empowerment so we can all have better and healthier lives. I have collected amazing experiences in my journey and feel that now is the right time for me to close my eyes, take a deep breath and jump.......

At the end of March my corporate career comes to an end, and for one month I will be a full time athlete and focus on my Elite Grading at the April comp. After April I am following my dream to inspire other and women ( and hopefully the occassional man) to make positive choices into a life of wellness. I haven't sorted out the details but I should be able to pay the bills with a combination of sponsorships, strength training clients, speaking engagements and other activities that I haven't even though of yet!

Well, I have is in the hands of the universe now!

Hubby and I took one a few months ago without all the details sorted, but total belief in ourselves and the Universe has cared for us very well.

All the best!

That's really great Lisa! I hadn't realised you were still working a corporate job on top of everything else-it'll feel great to get out of that! Good luck with everything...the journey continues!

Lisa, after watching your journey from afar and always admiring the decisions that you have made I am not surprised by this one.
Good luck, not that you will need it, because the harder you work the luckier you get :)And you certainly work hard!
You will be a success at what ever you choose to do.
