The Struggle to Eat Right!

Hey ya’ll and happy Monday to all of you! I hope you had a wonderful weekend and are rolling right into Monday with positive vibes only!

I have a confession to make. My eating has been all over the place. I have been mostly eating at home, but my meals have been so random! I will eat crackers and cereal, or a turkey burger and then a slice of cake. It is so weird. Ever since I have started working from home, my meals have gotten off track. Has this ever happen to you? I feel like I am just grabbing food out of left field. Although it ranges from healthy to unhealthy, I have to get back on track. The struggle is real ya’ll!

When I was at work, my meals were much more focused. I could go downstairs and pick up a salad from the salad bar, or just have the cafe make me a sandwich. Now it seems like I am a little lost. I have food in my house. It just feels like I can never settle on anything consistant. I know I can’t continue on this way because quite frankly my stomach is doing flips, so it is time for a change! Now!

I would love to hear from you guys on what you do, but in the mean time here is my plan. I was reading an article about making a “To Do” list, and yes, it is important, but then it was mentioned to make a “Not To Do” list. This morning I wrote down a goal specific to my eating habits.

“Do not eat a bunch of bad food, eat a healthy lunch.”

That was it! I left it there, and it is staring at me in the face reminding me of what to do. It is important to know that I only made that one nutrition goal for today. I am realistic with myself, and I figured that would be a good place to start. Hey we are all a work in progress! At least I am trying to make some progression right? I hope this helps someone today!

Be well you guys!

Exercise For All!

Hi Everyone! Happy Monday! I hope your Monday was filled with joy. I feel blessed to be alive, and still pressing on after having some health scares this past week. Is it true what they say, “Before something great happens, everything falls apart?” I hope not, but that is certainly how I have been feeling at work and with my health. I am just trying to keep it together, stay optimistic, and keep pressing on.

This weekend I went to breakfast with my family, and I couldn’t help but stare at the amount of food our waitress was bringing out and setting in front of us. All I could say in OH MY GOODNESS! I order french toast with eggs and sausage, and OMG!… She brought out 7 half pieces of french toast, 2 sausage links, and a pile of eggs that almost filled the plate. I kept thinking to myself, “Who is going to eat all of this?” And the worst part of all, it wasn’t even that good! Needless to say, I will never go back there again.

As I was eating I began looking at everyone around me. Their tables were filled with the same gigantic food I was eating, and they seemed to all be a lot heavier. Even though they were having a great time just as I was, the only thing that played over and over again in my head is THIS is what is wrong with America!

Our portions sizes and our waist sizes are all contributed to this way of life. All eat, and not enough exercise. Now I know what you are thinking… weight loss is 80% nutrition, and 20% food, but I can almost guarantee that in this restaraunt is was 100% eating and no exercise. I am here to simply say that we have to be better.

Exercising isn’t always easy, but it is always worth it. My tips for starting and exercise plan?

1. Start slow: Take is step by step, and what I mean by that is start with walking. Walking has the same benefits as running you just have to do it for a longer period of time.

2. Be realistic: If you are not working out at all don’t make a goal to exercise 6 days out of the week. It’s just not going to happen. Try starting with 2 days a week consistently, and then work your way up.

3. Keep at it: There is a funny meme that says,”Your body is not Amazon Prime. It is not going to show up in two days.” I couldn’t agree more! Stay committed to why you started in the first place. Remember it is a lifestyle change. Enough persistent exercise will lead to change.

So there you have it! Let’s begin to spread exercise to all!!! One step at a time! I hope this encourages someone tonight.

Be well you guys.

6 Months

 

PW2672414

Hi everyone, and happy Monday to you! This morning I was listening to my morning motivation as I always do, and I couldn’t help but think of the quote of how your life could be totally different in 6 months if you just take the time to work hard and stay committed. I am not sure that is exactly how it goes, but I think I am close. Then I starting to think, what if I began to do this? Not procrastinate. Not doubt, but just do 6 months of action. I have been telling my husband that I have been having this itch to leave my mark. To work for myself, and to just go for it!

Now I know I have other obligations and responsibilities to consider, but I want to make this commitment to myself. Hard work and dedication for 6 months and see how my life changes. My specific goals are to eat healthier; especially at lunch, exercise 4 to 5 days a week for at least 30 minutes or more, finish writing my book, and continually gain more client’s and grow my own business.

Have you ever felt this way? Like a shift or change is needed in your life, and you have finally found the path you want to lead? I am here to tell you it can be done. Won’t you join me? 6 months of steady hard work. The type of work that will prepare you for the life you want ahead. Whether you want to pray more, eat healthier, exercise more, be a better parent, or any number of things you want to do, YOU CAN DO IT! I would love to hear from those of you who want to make the commitment with me. I’ll ask you again… WON’T YOU JOIN ME?

Be well you guys.

Fit For Thought

Personal control is belief that one’s own internal resources allow one to control a situation. People who have a high level of self control approach challenging situations with the confidence and motivation to change their unhealthy behaviors. The battle begins in the mind. Whether you do or do not do something highly depends on whether you believe that you can do so. 🌿💖💪🏽#livelovewellandfit #iamwellandfit #friday #flexfriday #fitfriday #fitmom #fitness #health #exercise #wellness #wellandfitcoaching #fitforthought

Family Activity

Happy Wednesday y’all! I am back at it again with more kid’s health and fitness tips. Today I want you to remember to make it a family activity. Not only do we lead by example, but I have definitely learned that younger siblings learn from their older siblings. 9 times out of 10 if Jordan is doing it, Malia wants to do it too. It is a cycle, and it is surprisingly fun too! Make an effort to exercise together as well as choose new nutritious food together. Watch the change in the whole family. 🌿💖💪🏽 #livelovewellandfit #kidsfitnessweek #iamwellandfit #wednesday #wellnesswednesday #fitmom #fitness #health #exercise #wellness #wellandfitcoaching

Fit For Thought

Continuing my week of moderation. I had a great discussion on this exact topic while teaching earlier this week. The first step of a healthy lifestyle change is changing your behavior, and be realistic with yourself. If I can do it you can too! 🌿💖💪🏽
