When I found this quote I was like this is sooo true! Each of us go through many hardships but its what we do in the brink of it all that matters. I’m taking a step and using my struggles such as weight and confidence issues to empower others. What would you like to achieve?
Working out is something that has become a way of life. I workout 6 days a week no matter how tired I am, how angry I get at life, exhausted from an amazing day out with friends and family, even when I am sleepy I will push myself to workout. One thing I know is WITHOUT A SHADOW OF A DOUBT, I feel AMAZING when I am done with my workout. I feel like I am so strong and I can take on the day. It is amazing what you can accomplish with that state of mind. So now that you know how I feel when I workout, question is…
How do you feel when you workout?
Have you looked in the mirror?…
Like truly looked at yourself?
What do you see?
Do you like what you see or do you cringe?
Shaking your head in disappointment
Sighing at disbelief
Maybe even shed a tear
But breath my friend
Smile at yourself
Cheese so wide you hurt your cheeks
FOR YOU ARE BEAUTIFUL!
YOU ARE HANDSOME!
Who cares what the world thinks!
This is the real you, and this is your real body!
And if you do not like it
Smile because you are ready for change
Smile for the haters you know you will soon make envious
Smile for your health
Smile for your upcoming new life!
No one says it will be easy
You may be in more pain than you ever been in your life
You may even feel defeated at times
But one thing I can promise you!
You will be happier
You will be healthier
And you will become more motivated than you have EVER BEEN IN YOUR LIFE
So my friend
If your ready for change
LETS DO THIS
And always remember
Love your body NO MATTER WHAT!
Love the body that you are in throughout your journey in life, it is the only one you have! Hope you enjoy the small and big accomplishments in your health journey for not only this week but throughout your WHOLE LIFE!
SO SO SORRY I haven’t posted in like FOREVER! I have been so crazy busy and when I was not I was too exhausted to blog anything. Lately it has been short and sweet posts, but what I loved about them was my motivation was getting out there. Than I realized that the direction that not only my life was going but my blog was going in a different direction. Lately you have all noticed I have been focused on health and fitness and that is what I would like to focus on. I want when you go on my blog you find inspiration in your daily lives, and with that I decided to give my lovely blog a MAKEOVER! With that being said I will focus more on health and fitness but also giving you guys random but emotional poems, awesome recipes that I created or tested and LOVE and lots and lots of pictures of great inspiration.
I hope you follow me in this journey of self discovery and I hope I can maybe even inspire you to change your life just a little! Whatever the case may be I hope you follow, read, comment, and just have fun! Anyway before I leave my loves here a couple of pics of inspiration and a challenge I have been working on Instagram that I want you ALL to join whether you have Instagram or not!
If anyone is familar with Instagram you know they have daily to monthly photo challeneges where you can post daily pics on different topics. This month I decided to do a #mayfitnesschallenge and it has been loads of fun. Each day you post a pic of the topic of the day and it actually keeps you motivated during your fitness journey and you can even meet new people throughout it as well.
I have chatted with many people on this journey and it is very inspiring to see people’s progress and how they conquered their health. I will TRY to post my daily pics with you all and if you have Instagram look for me (sn is CulinaryGirl138)and see the awesome pics I post daily as well! I hope you all have an amazing weekend and remember YOU ARE WORTH IT!
Today as I was trying on clothes that I was once not able to fit in and I felt great. Than a sadness came over me because I was angry that I had let myself go soo many times and now have to work hard and sacrifice once more. But unlike the other times I feel soo much stronger and I am determined to become the woman I was meant to be…I just need to keep reminding myself that it is one day at a time…
So my friends while in your journey no matter what it is remember to…
And of course…
BELIEVE THAT YOU CAN DO IT!!!
Because ANYTHING is POSSIBLE 🙂
