2015 is the year of no excuses. Many times we set goals for ourselves, have dreams to pursue, but never achieve them. Why is that? Guilt, Fear,etc… are the thoughts we place in our that keep us from success. I challenge you this year, to make 2015 your year of #NoExcuses! If you want to lose that last 10lbs- Do It! Quit that depressing job- Do It! Write the book that’s been on your heart- Do It! Leave those toxic relationships- Do It! Whatever it is you looking to achieve in 2015, Do It- #NoExcuses!


Hey 2015, it’s me Alicia Monae (nickname, spirit animal, real name, blog name). This year I would like to run a half marathon, try a new fitness sport, and write a cookbook. It would also be super duper awesome if I also did teach a fitness class this year. It’s not a resolution, though, just a reminder to myself to try and have the best year yet because I am worth it.

The thing I am looking forward to most this year is using my gifts God gave me. I’ll use the one thing that truly gets me out of bed in the morning which is alarm clock to help me get up, get moving and get after my #NoExcuses 2015. Speaking of excuses (ahem), my very favorite excuse is I’m tired and I have used it to get out of doing workouts and blogging on more than  occasion.

I vow to move my body and be more healthy this year even if it means I have to make sacrifices daily. Even if my alarm clock gets eaten by the dog in the middle of the night, I’ll still get up and move. I will stop blaming the “fairy”  for eating the rest of the food when everyone knows it was really me. My JOB is not the reason I make excuses. I will show my JOB  who’s boss this year and get my Cardio on. I know that cardio is better than jiggle. I will reward myself by buying a new workout wardrobe (shoes too!).

No Excuses 2015 has just begun and already I am imagining myself a winner. I can’t wait to rock a compression shorts from Augusta Active. I can’t wait till my sweaty friends are jealous of how fresh, clean and energetic I am between workouts with help from ShowerPill body wipes. I can see myself rocking downward dog in new yoga pants from Actio926 and looking fit and fly while doing it. And of course, I’ll be taking my workouts to the next level and improving my fitness with my new ActivMotion Bar to help me train for my next  Peachtree Roadrace with Sasquatch Racing.

Oh, and let’s not forget how amazing my sports bra will smell in my / during my HIIT Workout after washing with some WIN Detergent. And lastly, I’ll keep rocking my 2015 with clean eats and nutrition from Beaming with Health!
