Taking My Own Advice

After realizing I've been writing this blog for an entire year, I have started to go back through and read what I've been writing...I swear to you, a year ago almost exactly mirrors how I've been feeling lately. I wonder if it's that the warm weather will be coming soon, so I think I must do "ALL THE THINGS" in life. I haven't felt much like exercising. Yesterday after an early morning networking event, I headed to the gym. I'd only had 6hrs of sleep and I was begging myself to just go lift. Just even do half of the workout...not even all. I got to the gym, parked in the parking lot, turned off my car, got out. Checked the back seat...

Turns out I left my gym bag...at home... on the couch.

"Okay, so I'll go home, take a nap, then exercise." My 30min nap turned into an 1hr and 30min nap. I did feel much better afterward. I did not get to squeeze a workout in though yesterday & today isn't looking much better either. Tomorrow, I will go lift. No excuses. I'm going to stay head of the game and remember to refocus my energies back into what I love. Which is continuing to be healthy.

Continue to be confident in my own "brand" of beauty. How I define beautiful.

Apparently, re-reading some old posts will help me out too.
No Excuses
Defining You're own brand of beautiful
Rest when I need to & don't feel guilty about it "Because sometimes we need to rest our bodies and our minds. A healthy journey is hard to complete when your head isn't in the game."



I should definitely take my own advice! 

I am unable to make a Sam's club run this month, but I am still keeping an eye on my budget. It's weird being an adult and thinking of money this way, but better late than never. This week I am heading to the store with an $80 spending budget. I'll let you know how I make out tomorrow, with my Weekly Wednesday Menu Plan. This time, I've included my am & pm snacks or mini meals. Hoping is this what is keeping my on track for my budget.

Blessings Everyone,
A

Sometimes it is nice to look back and remind ourselves how strong we actually are!

Thank you Amy, it's weird but yeah! I agree, I find this to be true when I re-read old journal entries as well.
