I am a Feld Family Ambassador, and in exchange for this post and all time and efforts put into sharing my opinions and anything Feld Entertainment is offering, I was provided with complimentary tickets to Feld shows and opportunities to attend private Feld pre-show events.
Step 1: Treat yourself.
I’m not talking with ice cream, although if that is your thing go for it. I’m serious bribe yourself. I gave myself a goal to work out everyday but Sundays for 30 days. And when I really didn’t feel like doing it, which happened around day 6, I thought about the prize I set for myself. I plan on gifting myself something at Disney or the spa when I get back.
Mama is working hard for some R&R!
Step 2: Make small changes.
No need to go insane and juice yourself into a blueberry. Cut out the processed stuff, eat fresh fruit and veggies. Or just focus on one meal at a time. Pinterest is full of ways to make things healthier but still tasty.
Step 3: Drink more water.
Some people love drinking water. Others hate it. I hear you. I’m not a fan either. I’m fine drinking it at restaurants, vacations, any place outside of my home. But if I’m relaxing on my couch or eating, water is not my thing. I need to be better too, because I’m not always on vacation. Sad I know. How about we hold each other accountable for this one?
Step 4: Exercise.
Before you close the window and write me off as another crazy person, I’m not saying go into some insane bootcamp where you work out 36 hours a day until you pass out. I don’t want to do that. No thanks. I’m still waiting for that miracle magic potion that will do all the work for me. But until that happens we need to work out.
My advice: find what you love. I enjoy Zumba. It is a blast to workout while shaking it. I can’t do that everyday so I started slogging again. That’s my term for jogging because I’m sloooooow. And because running has never been a favorite, but I can’t argue the results, I found FREE, yes free workouts on Amazon Prime (affiliate). They have a variety and I didn’t hate it. Plus I’m sore in the right places so I’ll call it a win. And since it was on Amazon, I didn’t have to leave my house and fight the weird guys at the gym for the weights.
Step 5: Believe in yourself.
All. The. Cheese. Sorry about that. But it goes along with my 2017 Word of the Year: Believe. You can do this. Start small, do what you can, and treat yo self when you make a goal. Find someone who also believes in you to cheer you on. Don’t have anyone local? Find me on social media and I will be your cheerleader. 1lb, 20lbs, who cares. Baby steps are still steps. Who cares that Suzy just had a baby and is back to pre-baby body while your baby is 7? Okay maybe I care a little, hey no one is perfect, but that doesn’t mean that I can’t be healthier. And my healthy doesn’t look like her healthy, or yours. That’s okay, I don’t and you don’t need to compare yourself to anyone else. So here is to 2017 being the healthiest year yet.

Beauty and the Beast – March 17, 2017
This tale as old as time is almost here! As a big fan of the original I cannot wait to see this on the big screen. It looks absolutely stunning. But don’t take my word for it, just watch the trailer! You can read more about the movie and see some awesome images here.
Born in China – April 21, 2017
The newest Disneynature film is narrated by John Krasinski. Take an epic journey into the wilds of China where few people have ever ventured. A doting panda bear mother guides her growing baby as she begins to explore and seek independence. A two-year-old golden monkey who feels displaced by his new baby sister joins up with a group of free-spirited outcasts. And a mother snow leopard—an elusive animal rarely caught on camera—faces the very real drama of raising her two cubs in one of the harshest and most unforgiving environments on the planet.
I’m excited about the snow leopard footage. Big cats are some of my most favorite animals and they aren’t kidding when they say this cat is elusive!
Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 – May 5, 2017
Set to the all-new sonic backdrop of Awesome Mixtape #2, Marvel’s “Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2” continues the team’s adventures as they traverse the outer reaches of the cosmos. The Guardians must fight to keep their newfound family together as they unravel the mystery of Peter Quill’s true parentage. Did I mention Kurt Russell is in this one! Ah!
Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales – May 26, 2017
Captain Jack is feeling the winds of ill-fortune blowing strongly his way when deadly ghost sailors, led by the terrifying Captain Salazar, escape from the Devil’s Triangle and are bent on killing every pirate at sea. Including him. Jack’s only hope of survival lies in the legendary Trident of Poseidon, but to find it he must forge an uneasy alliance with two unlikely mates. At the helm of the Dying Gull, his pitifully small and shabby ship, Captain Jack seeks not only to reverse his recent spate of ill fortune, but to save his very life from the most formidable and malicious foe he has ever faced.
Cars 3 – June 16, 2017
Blindsided by a new generation of blazing-fast racers, the legendary Lightning McQueen is suddenly pushed out of the sport he loves. To get back in the game, he will need the help of an eager young race technician, Cruz Ramirez, with her own plan to win, plus inspiration from the late Fabulous Hudson Hornet and a few unexpected turns. Proving that #95 isn’t through yet will test the heart of a champion on Piston Cup Racing’s biggest stage!
Thor: Ragnarok – November 3, 2017
Thor is imprisoned on the other side of the universe without his mighty hammer and finds himself in a race against time to get back to Asgard to stop Ragnarok—the destruction of his homeworld and the end of Asgardian civilization—at the hands of an all-powerful new threat, the ruthless Hela. But first he must survive a deadly gladiatorial contest that pits him against his former ally and fellow Avenger—the Incredible Hulk!
Maybe now we will know why these two heavy weights were;t around picking sides in Civil War. Although I think they would both choose #TeamCap but I’m a little bias. Could this be where Planet Hulk gets introduced? I don’t know but I’m excited to see what happens!
Coco – November 22, 2017
Despite his family’s baffling generations-old ban on music, Miguel dreams of becoming an accomplished musician like his idol, Ernesto de la Cruz. Desperate to prove his talent, Miguel finds himself in the stunning and colorful Land of the Dead following a mysterious chain of events. Along the way, he meets charming trickster Hector, and together, they set off on an extraordinary journey to unlock the real story behind Miguel’s family history.
Star Wars: Episode VIII – December 15, 2017
No details yet, not that I expected there to be any. I did read that Carrie Fisher had finished filming her parts for this movie. But with her passing they are meeting to decide how to proceed with the movies. I, like everyone else, was truly saddened by her death. She was an amazing woman and a role model for so many, including me. I only hope that our Princess, our General, is at peace.
Which one is on your must see list this year?
I don’t mean to sound ethereal with that. And before you dismiss it as happy go lucky let me explain why I chose it. It’s not some meaningless word to me. Believe to me signifies my life. Despite the struggles, despite the low times I was always told to believe in myself. My grandmother believed in me, even when I didn’t. And I lost sight of that when I lost her.
“We are what we believe we are.” C. S. Lewis
Through my family, friends, and some serious soul searching I finally started to get back that belief in myself. It wasn’t easy, but nothing worth having ever is. I’m thankful for the amazing people that God put in my life this past year and the reawakening of the fire within. The fire that will see these desires come to fruition. Follow me for all the excitement of 2017!
“Life is not easy for any of us. But what of that? We must have perseverance and above all confidence in ourselves. We must believe that we are gifted for something and that this thing must be attained.” Marie Curie
So I challenge you to go out there and believe in yourself and your dreams. Connect with me on social media if you are looking for someone to cheerlead for you. I believe in you!
