I love January, it’s the first chapter of new beginnings. I love setting goals and really pushing myself to achieve them. Last year I started working out, I went above and beyond my goals and I worked out at least 5 days of the week- the whole year! (yes, I’m proud).

Reason why I’m excited to partner this new year with JCPenney to get in the mindset that being active doesn’t mean fitness, it’s a lifestyle…you can be active in your everyday life- it doesn’t matter if it’s a hardcore HIIT class or if you are walking the dog for 30 minutes. Your body will thank you; even if it’s just  for 10 minutes, your body will thank you…#SoWorthIt.

To stay extra motivated I got some fun workout pieces from JCPenney- there were many affordable on-trend items but I went for some colorful leggings, matching sportsbra and shoes, and a cool sweatshirt that says “This is what Fierce Looks Like”. All these pieces worked perfectly from the gym to a casual run around the park. JCPenney is continuing its partnership with the YMCA. This January, become a new Y member during Jan 15-31, get bounceback JCP coupon on Active/Xersion!

While in Ecuador, I basically lived in my brother’s gym (yay to family businesses). I did as many classes as possible. My favorite was the Functional Gym, my body was so sore the day after…I think it still is. My Active Goals for 2017 is running the extra mile (literally and figuratively). I want to push myself; lift more, run faster,, become stronger.

What’s your active goal for 2017?
