I’m not talking about the movie and I actually haven’t even seen it yet, but I will. The #GirlsTrip I’m talking about is the one my college friends and I have regularly. It was another spectacular weekend with great food, fun and laughs.

I’ve realized that at this point in life, it takes a different motivator to make me commit to such a thing. So my plan is to start slow…3 days per week. I have a personal trainer to help me reach my initial goals and I’m actually excited (even though the picture doesn’t look like I’m excited). I can already hear some of you talking crap about me because I’m already “small”…but guess what, little people have heart attacks too!
