Can’t wait to see you all there!
Whether you started January 1st or are still wondering whether you can do it or not, don’t wait until tomorrow, START NOW!
Since the recent passing of the new year the majority of us are “on fire” or motivated to achieve our new year resolutions. The most frequent of new year resolutions has to come from the never ending desire people have to “lose weight”, and by this they think it equals exercising more. Although this is a very important component, you still can’t out exercise your diet. Even if you managed to exercise 7 days a week, you would not get the best results you possibly can unless you begin eating right.
I have recently been on a smoothie kick in the morning. I mix all my favorite fruits, and veggies in the blender (the ninja blender I initially bought for my husband for Christmas…hehehe…), and it is a sure way to start my day off right (I will be adding a protein mix soon because I am hungry in like 2 hours). I have also been bringing snacks such as nuts, cheese, cranberries to also snack on. When I have lunch I try to keep it light. I don’t want something to drag me down for the rest of the day, and I live by my “don’t overeat rule”. If we are to truly conquer our wellness goals, then it has to start from the inside out.
Everyday you wake up try to make a conscience decision to live a better life. Now don’t get me wrong, I am not perfect by any means, but I know that I want to take care of myself now and avoid problems later. It is also good to practice “everything in moderation”. Have a slice of cake or a mini snickers (my treat). It usually curves those cravings, and you can move on instead of obsessing over something that you wish you had.
They key is to stay realistic. Ask yourself, “Where am I now?” and “Where would I like to be in the next year?” Do you want to be stuck making the same new year resolution next year, or is 2017 the time for change? You decision, but know that you are the one who has to deal with the consequences.
Be well you guys.

I don’t know what it has been about the start of this year. I have seem to feel re-motivated. 2017 feels good from my head to my toes, and we are only 4 days in. I feel more comfortable doing things that I have never done before, and I want to stick to them.
I feel so fortunate to work where I do. I just finished make a vision board for 2017. It is filled with dreams and goals that I have for myself and my family. What’s funny is when I started I didn’t know what I was looking for, but as I continued searching for images and words that spoke to me, the more clear the vision became. It was a self reflection process. I kept thinking, “This is work?!!!” Lol!
Just like making a vision board, life is very much the same way. At times we may not even know what we are looking for or which direction we should go, but the more we press on, then more it is revealed to us.
Every workout I complete, I am living out my purpose. I am also helping people and myself at the same time. It is a God given gift and feeling that makes me come alive. Good things are in the works for you and me. We just have to start somewhere and keep pressing on.
Be well you guys. Stay encouraged, and make tomorrow amazing as well.
Live. Love. Well & Fit.
Happy Thursday to my readers. I particularly enjoy this time of day. It is a time when my world is quiet ( aka the kids are sleep) and I can take time to be me. Just to think. Not being mommy or wife, but just settling into my thoughts. Wellness can be explained a lot of ways. For me it is being in a state where you mind, body, and spirit are at peace.
From day to day our schedules may be taxing, but I find hope in knowing that it will be alright. It is important to find a time in the day when you can also release. I make it a time where I can write down or fine tune my goals. I can prepare mentally for the day ahead, but at the same time enjoy the reflection of this day. It is just another component of being well and fit. Seeing my children done with their day sleeping peacefully in their beds confirms to me a job well done. Then my reward comes by simple seeing my husband walk through the door safely, and if time, we watch a movie together. It is a stress reliever. A way to unwind after a long day. It is part of being well. Find sometime to be well to yourself this evening.
Live. Love. Well & Fit.
