This journey is amazing however I would not be truthful if I did not admit that sometimes it is scary. I love my life and I love what I do which is why looking back is sometimes hard for me. At some point in my young life I had made a decision to never look back and to move as far away as I could from the demons and trauma in my past. That sounds like a very good strategy however when you get to the point where you realize you’re still running and there’s no need to run it can be very eye-opening. I remember waking up one morning and rushing off to work and then rushing to make phone calls and then rushing to get to customers and then rushing to get my kids and rushing to make sure everything okay. At some point I hit a brick wall mentally and had to realize that I was rushing for no reason and I was running for no reason. I had finally gotten to a point where everything was okay however that is not to say that everything is perfect but it was definitely okay and actually life is better than okay.
Well…I may not have been blogging everyday. But I will say this I have been consistent every day with making good choices and choosing better ways to treat my body and my mind. Those better choices are starting to show up on the scale and in the way my clothes fit and for that I am very grateful.
I haven’t wrote in a while. Things are good however things can always get better. I am still on my weightloss journey and building my business. I have noticed that my life has improved in the areas where I am intentional. What that looks like in real life is that I am being very consistent with what I am eating and not eating. I write down a to do list every day which includes items that will specifically help my business, fitness and mindfulness. A typical to do list will look something like this;
Clean out car
Make 50 calls
Call Mr. Moore
Walk for 30 min
Put 1000 in “xyz” account
Do a social media post
Plan girls night out with the kids
Read 30 minutes
Depending on what is going on that day my list will also include some fires I may need to put out. My goal every day is to solve problems or as I like to say handle my challenges. I like the word challenges better than the word problem because I have a competitive spirit and that word works better for my brain. Also my to do list is hand written because that works better for me however I know people that only do a digital list because that works better for them.
The other thing I have done is cut back on the news because I don’t like the way it makes me feel. Overall I am very careful about what I put in my brain. I generally will have a positive motivational podcast or video playing in my car because I spend so much time in my car and it is a great way to learn and stay focused.
I have to go now but I will have more tips on what I am doing to improve my life tomorrow.
