Sooooo let’s get into it shall we?
First I would like to say Merry Christmas to everyone. I hope that everybody’s Christmas was good. As for me…mine was SUPER LITTY!! ( but that’s a storytime for another day probably) As you get older you really start to crave the vibe of that warmth and love from everybody like your family, friends, etc. It’s no longer mostly about presents. I buy stuff all year round so by the time Christmas gets here it’s hard for me to think about what I want. My mom called me like a month before Christmas and was like ” do you know what you would like for Christmas”? All I want is to be home with my family enjoying their company. It is so hard for me to come up with anything. ( I mean her or my dad could pay a bill for me). That would be greatly appreciated!!! lol. But enough of rambling. Let’s get into it….
So my last weigh in was on November 27th and as I’ve said before I have changed alot of my habits over this journey. One of those habits would be I no longer weigh myself weekly. I weighed back then 170 after eating on thanksgiving lol I now weigh myself monthly to give myself time to focus on being healthy rather than the number on the scale. If you focus on the number on the scale and not your progress, you will get discouraged because you don’t see the number moving, but if you look in the mirror there is progress. So I always go by the mirror.
Right after this post goes live I am going to the gym. The gym just gives me a sense of productivity. Like, some days if I don’t have much planned on my to do list but I still go to the gym,I still feel productive. I’m a person that always has to stay productive. I relax when I need to but overall I’m always on the go.
My eating habits are becoming much more great. I don’t really crave fast food anymore. The closest to fast food that I still eat is Chick-fil-a. ( I can’t let go of my grilled chicken nuggets) The world will end that day. I just love them that much. I have been drinking mostly water. ( I love my lemon inside my water). I have a cup or two of coffee. I use to be so obsessed with coffee because it gave me that extra boost.Now, I’m not so much into it. I only drink it when I need it. ( Like now because I’m about to head to the gym).
Working out for me is more than just physical. It’s also mental. Recently, something has happened in my personal life revolving around my family so working out relieves some of that stress and when I’m done all of those endorphins are released causing me to feel so good afterwards.
I hope that everybody has a wonderful new year. We’re creating nothing but positive vibes. If anyone in your life is causing you from reaching your potential they have to go!!! 2019 is the time to live your best life whether that is a new career, getting into shape, traveling more, etc. Do it! Surround yourself with people who want to see you win and keep your dreams to yourself until you are sure and feel secure enough to share them. Don’t let anyone talk you down from any dream. Out dream yourself.
A personal story of mine is I just opened a beauty bar. I love anything dealing with beauty. I have been wanting to open one for so long. So almost four going on five years ago, I started working on that dream. I wrote me out a business plan and started saving up money to get the building for that. I never did tell anyone about this ( except my closes friends and my boyfriend). I did not tell my family or nobody else. I worked on this goal privately for almost five years. I just got confirmation that the building I wanted is now mine. I have my business license and everything. When everything for me to start it was lined up is when I came out and told everyone about it. I say all that to say this: There is always going to be some people in your life that do not want to see you win or their jealous. And because of that will try to speak negative on your dream or talk you out of your dream to make you second guess your decision. Please know that until you are in a position to where you dream is secured or you’re mentally strong enough to keep going when people try to talk you out of a dream, to work on your goals privately. Surround yourself with like-minded people and you will always flourish.
