Where are you?

This is a question that I continue to ask myself every so often. As I journey though life, I have to “check-in”

My years ago when I was an insecure person,this question would be a very sad and difficult question to answer honestly. The reason for that was because I was continuously comparing my life to others. Looking at Facebook posts and pictures or real life people and wondering….how is it that they have what I feel as if I deserve ?

What I later realized, after going thorough my own rock bottom, was that I have to be grateful for wherever I am in life. When I had more, I was comparing with others. When I had nothing, my less-than,years ago would be great now! It taught me to stop comparing because that blessing is that person’s own. My blessings are around me everyday.

Learn to fall in love with the journey. Learn the lessons that comes with the experience. And continue to be grateful with knowing that each day is a blessing. To have peace of mind in this world of craziness is what is priceless.

Now, I get it. I don’t compare, I strive to be better than my yesterdays. To love and serve God.To thank him for just being able to find happiness within and to be happy for others. The more that I practice this art, the more my world open up for me and allow my needs to be met.

Where are you, in your journey? 

No More Extra Spillage

Yeah! It’s been two weeks! You may ask, “umm …. two weeks of what?” Well, to answer that question. I’m on a self-improvement/ healthy lifestyle change. For a few while now, I’ve looked at myself and noticed that , what I see, I don’t like. To be honest, I look a damn mess. Correction, A HOT DAMN MESS!

My face is breaking out from being stressed and eating unhealthy foods. Also as a result, I can not find my waist anymore and my back is wide enough to tow a few people on. As I said before, a hot mess. Some may say, why are you talking about yourself in such a negative way? To be honest, at some point in order to change what you’ve been doing for years, you must get Disgusted ! If each and every time that you try on your favorite pair of jeans and your ‘bread top’ not ‘muffin top'(because it’s gotten that bad) is getting in the way of you being happy with what you see, you have to get fed the hell up. And that’s exactly what I did in order to change.

I don’t want to be thin, I want to like what I see when I’m naked. Not just look good with clothes on. There are many people walking around each day ‘looking’ well put together. But under all of that are garments that are holding all of the extra SPILLAGE. Don’t get me wrong , I’ve used a few myself. But what’s the use when you have a full length mirror that tells the truth at the end on the day.

Back to the point

With my self improvement journey; I’ve started juicing and working out a few days a week. I’ve also started eating more healthy meals within the day to change my metabolism. I will discuss in a later post the foods that I eat and the exercises that I’m doing. Also some of the new product that I’m using to improve my skin care regimen. I can see some improvement in my overall appearance, but then again it’s only been two weeks. I’d like to tweak here and there if need be before giving it all to the masses. And to be really honest, I’m learning as I go. There are so many websites and forums that I’ve visited over the last month, that words are looking BLURRRRY…..

Tell me, are you please with your weight? If not come on this journey with me, I love company !
