In Transition: Goodbye Winnipeg and Hello Alberta!

It is one thing to SAY you are going to do something. It is another thing to actually SIT DOWN AND DO IT! Today is that day!

In the midst of all the craziness that is my life, I FINALLY have the time to sit down and write what has been going on for the past couple of months. So let's see:

1) In October, I decided to move from Winnipeg to be with my boyfriend out in Edmonton.
2) Had to let go of my great apartment in Osborne Village. Oh the hours of cleaning spent on making it spick and span for the new tenants.
3) Moved my stuff from the apartment to my parents house temporarily in transition before moving to AB. Living with the parents was definitely an adjustment.
4) I had the most wonderful time with all my dearest friends and amazing personal training clients leading up to my departure. Thanks for all the memories!
5) All my wonderful and amazing sponsors (even the ones based in Winnipeg) are continuing my sponsorship. I am so blessed. Thank you for your continued support.
6) On Christmas Day, Sam proposed to me and I said "YES!"
7) Unfortunately, the ring was WAY too big. I ended up wearing it on a different finger LOL
8) On Boxing Day, we packed up all my things in the rental car and took off to Alberta.
9) Moved in all my stuff, which took two or three days to get organized to my liking. (YUP, I have a lot of stuff).
10) Celebrated my birthday on the 17th of January and it was an amazing one at that because I got a job at Snap Fitness. What a great present! HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO ME!
11) Nutrition is right on cue. Eating clean foods for fuel.
12) Workouts are a bit different than what they have been in the past with more cardio on growth season training than ever before (I usually do none).

And that's what has been my life for the past couple of months. Now you see why I haven't been up to date with my blogs and social media. It was a frickin' mad house!

I do have to say I miss everyone back home oh so much. To all of my wonderful friends and loving family, don't worry...we will keep in touch...Promise! Being out here with no friends is a BIG change for me. I normally surround myself with my loved ones. I now have to start from scratch, which I know won't be hard to do...Err I hope.

The one positive of having no close friends out here is being in isolation. It allows me to concentrate on my goals without distractions. The past few weeks out here have shown amazing results in my body composition. Focus is darting start ahead. In fact, I don't believe there was ever a time where my focus was even close to how it is right now. I am just loving it.

So, with all that being said, I am liking it out here. It is definitely a HUGE change from Winnipeg but a change I am going to embrace.
