I was down on myself for quite some time but couldn’t find the motivation in me to keep living a healthy life without the support of family close by or sports. I moved in with amazing room mates who started a health challenge with me at the beginning of January. It is now the beginning of February and I am down 7 pounds! Not that it is all about the weight…it’s not. I just enjoy eating healthy and working out. It’s the lifestyle that I am addicted to. I feel like I have more energy during my days and I feel more grace, joy and peace in my life.
This is me. My journey. I love healthy living, playing the guitar and I am part hippy. I would honored to help and encourage you in yours!
All I want in life is to have a pure, joyful and encouraging soul. God please help me get there.
“Mindfulness is simply being aware of what is happening right now without wishing it were different; enjoying the pleasant without holding on when it changes (which it will); being with the unpleasant without fearing it will always be this way (which it won’t).” – James Baraz”
I went home for wedding cake tasting this weekend and my mom said to me, “You look so skinny! How are you keeping the weight off?” It was the first time my mom has acknowledged my progress. It made my weekend! Also I weighed in at 130! YAY! 5 to 10 more pounds in three-ish months- TOTALLY possible!
11 hours of work
2 hours of wedding invitation work
Today was an emotional day at work. Sometimes I think being a social worker is some evil person’s plan to numb me to other people’s pain. I must leave work at work.
