We have a renewed motivation now and this is because of our co-worker, Jackie. She started her journey to a healthy lifestyle and I have never met someone with so much discipline, Amazing!!!! So, we are bringing back and harder then ever. Lets see what happens.
Can I just say it is always great when you fall and you are able to pick yourself back up again. I have been reading through some of my favorite health blogs and it seems these past few months have been rough for ALL of us. But the true test of ones dedication to their healthy lifestyle is being able to pick themselves back up again.
Believe me it is rough. The past month has been a struggle, trying getting myself back in my old routine of daily exercise and consistent healthy eating habits. Around day two and three I would just give up and feel sorry for myself. Thankfully, this past week I have been able to pick myself back up again and get myself going. I tried to think about what helped me get back in the game and a few things came to mind.
1.Reading health blogs: Reading other blogs helped me realte to other women.
2. Observing how my body feels: When I start feeling groggy and sleepy all the time I know it has to do with the quality of food that I am eating and me not going to the gym.
3. Clothes: When my pants start to feel a little tight that is usually when I pick myself up real quick.
4. Sadness: When I start to feel sad and almost depressed I know alot of it has to do with my Health. Being healthy for me is meditative, I feel a sense of balance.
These are just a few things, but I am sure there is more.
So those who are feeling down and out, find what works for you and make sure you write down and place it somewhere where you can see it everyday for constant motivation.
Lunch time is when you really see how someone is fueling their body and if they are getting the right nutrients from their food. My competitor for “The Challenge” contest ate a plate of salad with carrots and a morning side chicken patty sandwich. In my opinion it did not look to appetizing ( I still luv you Aurora).
I on the other hand had a Tomato Bisque soup from Life Food Gourmet, a spicy black been burger from Morning Side, and a handful of prunes. I definitely enjoyed my food
