Processed with VSCO

Wow! July went by slower than expected, but I feel like we’re jumping into August with more excitement. I tried to do as much as i could especially with work…

I bragtrying out a spin class and sweating like a pig, till the end. After month of bad eating and shrugging off exercise, it caught up with me. It’s been a delight to have people like Esther and Tasha take this path too, which has kept me motivated.

Gratitudethankful to finally have my visa and make travel plans to live somewhere new for 6 months!

 I desire: to challenge myself more and get out of my comfort -zone
