Cincinnati. Fam. My husband brought home Richie's tonight and I can't be more in love.
The potato wedge. The fried chicken. The mac n cheese. The sweet potato pie.
Monday I start a brand new speed and agility training program with a strict ass meal plan. Like 6 servings of vegetables the first week, 8 servings the second week.
So I'll just enjoy my Richie's til my time on Monday comes. ❤️👊🏽
Woke up this morning just not feeling today. Literally fighting my depression dancing in the car while Darren is driving.
Literally, physically pushing my endorphins to get going.
Before we have a mini family day (procrastinating packing), I'm reaching out to ladies who may be joining our girl boss team❤️ I'm surrounding myself with women who are ready to change their lives and change other women's lives. My depression does not win this day, y'all. 👊🏽
Day 27/35 Stretch.
No words can explain how bad I didn't want to get this done tonight. I didn't have the time for it. I didn't have the energy for it.
But I MADE time for it. I MADE energy for it.
Excuses are just well planned lies. And I'm throwing every last one of them out of the window.
Monday, July 31 I have 3 women signed up for my free 5 day boot camp. I'll provide the meal plan, exercise program if you don't have one, and the motivation. You come with your determination and ready to throw YOUR well planned lies out of the window. ✨
Doing some goal setting for today before I do some reading. While at my personal development retreat, I learned one vital skill to knock out tasks.
Every night before going to sleep, write down 6 things you want to complete the next day. Going through my notes from that weekend really make me wish I were back there.
On July 31, I'm running a free 5 day boot camp for women who are determined to kick start some health and fitness goals. We'll be tracking daily water intake, tracking daily workouts, I'll provide a meal plan, and motivating one another to knock those goals out of the park. Comment "I'm in" or pm me. You got two weeks to decide if you're down. ❤️☺️
In order to bribe D to be in a bearable mood just now, I had to share half of my Shakeology with him. 😑
so I wanna take a minute to thank @beachbody for creating a pediatrician approved, pea protein based children's shake. (It's dairy free, soy free, gluten free, artificial crap free, etc.) Fingers crossed that once I get my hands on it, I can have my own shakes in peace. 🙇🏽♀️
Prior to starting the 21 Day Fix last year, I tried every weight loss avenue that didn't cost much. I searched Pinterest to see what would work the best in the least amount of time. I had the attitude that I didn't need anyone's help, guidance, or suggestions. I could do it all by myself.
Til I met my wellness coach and learned my"weight loss" journey was much bigger than just losing pounds. I was begging God to bring me friends that would build into me, challenge me, and encourage me. More than someone to go out with on a Friday night. I was begging God to put some depth into me because I felt empty and like I was just floating around in life with no end goal or purpose. I was begging God for strength. I was begging God for confidence. And I didn't even know it.
It took investing into myself, being apart of a group of women going after the same thing, getting constant recognition and affirmations, and being challenged outside of my comfort zone to gain what I have now.
So what are you investing in for yourself? What steps are you taking to get out of the rut you're stuck in?
I'm in this really weird place right now. Emotionally and spiritually. A literal sense of spiritual warfare. I'm being fed lie after lie after lie but I KNOW they're false. And I'm fighting so hard and it's so consuming that I'm left numb and angry. To the point where I'm googling, "Jesus on depression" "Jesus on anger". If Jesus, the one perfect being who walked this earth can overcome depression and anger, that means I have a chance.
I have a chance at changing my responses, I have a chance at bettering my everyday routines (or lack there of), I have a chance at learning how to properly cope and work through this odd season without hurting those around me or myself.
