Now is the best time to do it! Sometimes we assume that we can’t pursue our dreams if we don’t have all our ducks in a row. I would like to submit to you that we will achieve our dreams and goals sooner if we start right where we are.What was that look like? Example: If my dream is to buy an apartment complex and yet I do not have the resources (money or credit) to buy one then I can at least start looking at apartment complexes. I sign up for commercial newsletters for companies that sell apartment complexes. I can reach out to property management companies to find get information on managing properties. I can look at the resources and figure out how to position myself to buy one. I can put plans on paper in order to visualize what my goals are. I can audit my talents, skills and abilities to figure out what I can do to make more money. I can run the numbers to create a budget for buying an apartment complex. I can read real estate books, go to auctions and join organizations that are helpful to property owners. The idea is to start moving towards your dreams and goals regardless of where you are right now.Read and consume content that will encourage you to be productive. Start today. Sit down and write out what you want your life to look like. Make you the priority in your life. I have found that it is much easier to achieve my goals when I take care of myself. I am a better business woman, wife and mother when I take take care of myself and focus on my goals.What does focusing on my goals in real life looks like? I now walk 30 minutes a days even if it is at some weird hour of the day. I come home and make phone calls to my clients. I tell my kids “mommy needs 20 minutes of uninterrupted time” and they will (generally) respect that request:). I go to sleep listening to The Science of Getting Rich. I write out my goals every morning and every night.The world needs you. If you have a goal or dream and you achieve it that inspires other people to pursue their goals and dreams. It is becoming increasingly easier to plan out our lives in such a way that we can achieve our hearts desires because there are so many great tools and information out there. But those tools and information don’t mean anything if we don’t use it.My prayer is that you will read this short post in stock right now to start working on your dreams and goals.
Still teetering between 206 and 207….progress feels good. I am moving more and of course being mindful of what I eat. Today I am going to go scuba training today. So much fun. Helpful hint: find fun activities that interest you that also happen to involve physical activity:)
Simple but yummy breakfast! Spicy vegan sausage, 1 egg, 1 slice of vegan cheese on gluten free bread with guacamole! I love eating this kind of breakfast because I feel full longer! I will do my 7 min workout today and I meditate for 20 min:) Also healthy yummy food is a must…must include a healthy fat😀
Gottta drink my water. I feel good but I am not sure why it went up a little but that is ok. I know I have until the end the month but I just want to make sure that I stay on track early. Meaning staying on top of my food choices and making sure I get at least 30 minutes of exercise a day. Have a great day and stay true to yourself.
I was 210 yesterday and I am 208.6 today. I ate mostly clean yesterday. I will share with you what I am doing today…I am walking for 30 minutes and this evening I am doing 30-45 min of yoga(not good at it but it makes me feel good). I had gluten free French toast, salmon croquette and eggs with spinach, beans, a little cheddar and onions and a cup of coffee with almond milk. I feel really good today and I think that is because I am taking my apple cider vinegar and thyroid supplement before bedtime. I am also getting my sleep in and choosing not to worry about day to day normal business challenges. I am also allowing myself to take a few moments and just be silent. Oh, I almost forgot, I am drinking a gallon of water everyday and I know that helps me feel really good. I hope you have a great day. These posts about this weight journey will probably not be the most eloquent but they will be real and honest.
So here we go…I forgot to weigh this morning because my daughter was running late for swim practice so I jumped out of bed in my jammies and took her to school for swim practice. Then I went to breakfast with my younger daughter. I started out with avocado toast and coffee however I did get a slice of her French Toast…yummy but not in line with my goals. Hey, but at least I am starting off with day 2 of consistently writing about this journey. Now I must go do a little work.
Racism is ALWAYS based on ignorance and fear!!
These are facts that unfortunately in the head of the ignorant will fuel their fear.
Fact! Because this country is made up of many different races and cultures over time this country will become browner.
Fact! Because we truly are a nation that progresses forward, we will move towards creating opportunities and providing opportunities to all people, not just one race, so wealth will be accumulated by people of color that choose to educate themselves, work hard, follow their dreams and never give up no matter how hard life gets.
Fact! People that consider themselves white supremacist usually are not very “supreme” in many areas of their life which include emotional intelligence which in turn is why they have to look at others to blame for the problems in their life or their percieved “the world is falling apart” mentality.
Fact! Minorities and people from other cultures on average have more children than non minorities which in turn affects the population. Many of the people that are born into these circumstances are choosing to work hard and do better for themselves thus learning to live their American dream which in turn makes those that are less willing to work hard get left behind in technology and in other fields.
Fact! The reason why this is in the news every day of the week is not because it’s fake news, it’s because as a country we thought we had moved past this. There are so many people that are outraged because we are determined to move in a direction where we have liberty and justice for all. We will not go back to the way things use to be.
Fact! As a country we always move forward towards unity and progress. We will always move towards inclusion and freedom. And for the people that are not accepting of this, they will be left behind regarless of who they are. They think they can change things and make us go backwards but as a country but we will always move forward. As a country regarless of what it looks like right now we will one day truly be the UNITED States of America.
And for the record I am absolutely NOT surprised when a snake bites. However I am surprised when honest, loving, caring, smart intelligent people allow snakes in their house and allow them to bite other people and say nothing or just bury their head in the sand.
If you don’t know what’s gonna happen when all this settles let me give you a hint…The civil war, the civil rights movement, marriage equality, the suffrage movement and WWll…. In the end love wins every single time…
My husband is white
My kids are biracial
My brother in law is from El Salvador (owns a business)
My mentor is Jewish
My other mentor is Indian
My grandmother is part Native American
My friend is part of the LGBTQ community
My crews are latino
I can go on and on…..
Also if you don’t like the way America is changing then you are welcome to go back to whatever country your ancestors came from unless of course they were Native American
