Motivational Monday: Make Time

Hi Everyone and Happy Monday to all of you. I recently had a conversation with a dear friend of mine, and we were talking about how life gets so busy we can lose priority of the time we get to spend with the ones we love. I know for me everything can get so busy sometimes that I barely get a chance to just sit and enjoy. We are working on goals, at work, dealing with kids, or planning out our next move. We must not get so wrapped up in the constant “go” of life, and forget the people that mean the most to us. Just like any other thing in your life relationships are something that you also have to work at. You truly get what you give. So I just want to encourage you today. Don’t take advantage of those close relationships that you cherish the most because you never know when they will be gone. Every day is a new day to strengthen you as well as someone else. Make the time and be present for somebody else. Sometimes that is all we need. Be well you guys.

Live. Love. Well & Fit.

Fit For Thought: Learn how to advocate for yourself 

Dedicated to all my queens! It’s time to take control of your circumstance. I run into so many women who are not where they want to be in life, and they tend to blame it on everyone else. When really it is time to look in the mirror and change into the person God intended you to be. Certain things you’re just going to have to live with, but if you have to make a choice to change, make the right choice. Be assertive, not aggressive.  Ask for help if you need it. Be willing to stand for yourself, your family, and your community.  Most importantly stay encourage and ask God for help. Nothing is out of your reach. You can do it!
Be well you guys! 

Live. Love. Well & Fit.

Tackle Your Tuesday: Are you sleeping enough?

GO TO BED!… I mean happy Tuesday to all of you… hehehe! I hope you all had an amazing day, but it is time to wind down. Last week and this week I have been going to bed way later than I should, and I a paying the price for it. My lack of energy is catching up to me, so I consciously made a goal to go to bed at 10:30pm for 4 days (hopefully consecutively) this week. I once heard someone say that the recipe for success includes sleep. Just think about it. How can you perform at your absolute best the next day if you don’t allow your body to rest. It is the same when you follow an exercise routine. You must allow yourself to rest and recover to progress. Being a busy adult it is not always easy to achieve this, but hey I have to try.

Sleep allows your body to recover and rejuvenate for the next day. Being able to sleep, really sleep allows your body to be in a state of peace, and you wake up refreshed. If you also have any illness in your body sleep helps your body to fight off any sickness. I can go on and on. The require amount of sleep for an average adult is 7 to 9 hours a night. I have 3 tips to getting all of your rest. First of all, set a bed time for yourself. Secondly, turn off all distractions. This will help you relax, and lastly pray. Prayer is so powerful. It help you to get everything off your chest from the day and give it to the Lord. I find I sleep so much better after praying.

So there you have it! Now really let’s go to sleep, and tackle this Tuesday night! Wink… wink. Be well you guys.

Live. Love. Well & Fit.

Motivational Monday: Don’t be petty! It is not productive to you or the person you are trying to hurt. Every second you spend being negative could have been channeled into something positive, so don’t do it at all. Learn to respond and not react to situations. As much as I have wanted to go there with some people, it is just not worth my time or energy. Be well you guys! 🌿💖💪

Fit For Thought: You Choose

Hi Everyone! Happy Wednesday to you all! O hope you all had a fun and safe 4th of July. Today I want to talk to you about your life. We are all where we are based on the choices we have made. Uncontrollable things may happen, but for the most part we are responsible for the direction in which our lives are going. I have met so many people in and out of my life that only want more, who don’t have enough of this or that, and people who are stuck in bad relationships. Well I am here to tell you that you are stuck there because of nobody else but you! I am not trying to put you down, but rather lift you up, and let you know that it is not too late. You have to be the one to advocate for your own life! It is a new season. We are half way through the year. It seems like a great time to turn it around if you haven’t been having a great first half of 2017. It is never too late, and there sure won’t be a perfect time, but everyday is an opportunity to be better than what you were. What are you waiting for? I am tired of seeing people in my life settle for just “being” when they are meant to be great. Stop making excuses. Stop blaming others, and look at the person in the mirror. You can have the relationship you want. You can have the job of your dreams. You can lose that excess weight and become healthier, but IT IS UP TO YOU! Even I had to get to a point where I had to realize that my life was a bi-product of what I allowed to control it. There is a saying that a person will change when they get sick and tired of being sick and tired. Is that you? If it is you must realize that you can be amazing. You just have to try. Choose the life you want, and go get it! If you fail the first time, try again and again and again, but don’t forget why you started. It’s time to clean up, and push on from people, things, and environments that don’t support you as a person. Trust me I had to learn the hard way, but since I have been through so much, I can be right here cheering you on on the sidelines. It will get better, and whatever you are in right now remember this too shall pass… Be well you guys.

Live. Love. Well & Fit.
