I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas and got to celebrate with the ones you love!
The new year is fast approaching and for some of us this past year has not been a very good one. I know I’m ready to turn the page on 2017 and focus on 2018 and making it a fantastic year!
I truly believe that what doesn’t kill us, does make us stronger!! If you have been knocked down learn how to get back up… and FIGHT!!! Don’t make what has weakened you in the past, define you! STRIVE & RISE!! I have started a closed group on facebook called Strive! Health & Wellness Motivation… if anyone out there is reading this would like to join please let me know… it’s a group where I will share some coaching strategies and where motivation will be the key to our success!
We all need to be held accountable and learn this is a process, a marathon, NOT a sprint!! It’s learning to make your health & wellness a priority, consistency… Make your health a habit!!
You have all had the opportunity to read about my personal journey, ALL the ups and downs… it’s not over for me by a long shot! I have to take each day as it comes and vow to myself, that I will NOT allow for myself to ever go back to the way I was before! It’s not easy, some days are harder than others… I am and always will be a food addict! The choices I make daily effect me…. whether its food or laying around all day and not being active. It’s easier to eat crappy and grab what’s convenient rather than plan a meal and cook it… so every day I have to remind myself where I have came from and where I want to be… and that is making the ‘right” choices in food and exercise… and every step in the right direction is a win!! On days I don’t follow my regimen, I don’t beat myself up… none of us are perfect and were not going to be all the time… I chose to make healthier choices 8 out of 10 times… but I wasn’t always there… when I first started it was maybe 2 out of 10… but as I learned about nutrition and my health that number went up… I realized I will not be a 10 out of 10 every day but for the majority I strive for that! Once you get “used” to eating healthier your body WILL let you know when you have not! And because of the after shocks of what unhealthy eating does and how it makes me feel… most of the time what I ate was not worth it!
I recently had my blood work done and my levels were all good! I can’t remember the last time that happened! My journey started 3 years ago… but I got real serious about it 6 months ago… I’m still a work in progress… and I will be for the rest of my life!
