The “there’s no way” challenge.

This is the post excerpt.

Starting in 2013, I’ve created yearly fitness goals that have always been one step past crazy.  My personality is stubborn, so the only thing that motivates me is when I tell someone I’m going to do something and they say “There’s no way.”

In 2013, I wanted to become a Zumba instructor.


In 2014, I wanted to run a half marathon.


In 2015, I took a mini break aka my challenge was to survive our wedding 🙂

Also, complete! *phew*

It’s already late July and it occurred to me that I hadn’t set my 2016 goal!  After some brainstorming, I had an array of options on the table like full marathon, triathlon, mountain biking, snowboarding, you name it.  Although a great list, nothing really lit the fire in my fitness belly.  And then it hit me.. I’ve always been interested in the idea of boxing but how could I take that idea and take it one step further?  Ah yes, what if an average person like myself was able to condense a training schedule and fight in a match in 12-16 months?

And here we are.

My journey starts August 2nd.
