Who I Follow

Forget diamonds, man!!  (Ok, no, don’t, I still like them too!) Weights do more for the body, that’s for sure!  Weight lifting…it keeps you young, keeps your metabolism burning hot and gives your body shape! I can’t wait for 11/3!

This is exactly what I need today.  I’m still really struggling, mentally.  I have no idea why and I’ve spent the last few days trying to “figure it all out.”  I’m realizing that maybe there ISN’T an answer.  Maybe I wasn’t meant to have one.  Maybe it’s a test for me.  Maybe I should just SHUT UP, GET TO WORK AND HAVE FAITH.  

I’m injured, exhausted, possibly getting sick, stressed out, mentally disconnected and lack motivation.  I haven’t felt this way in a long time.  

I don’t understand it.  But I’m starting to think that maybe I don’t have to.  I have a man that adores me the way I am but keeps me motivated.  I have a great job, a great family, and I’ve come a LONG way.  I’m going to have periods of time where my own brain doesn’t get it.  And I should just accept it, stay the course, and realize that slip ups, falling down and lacking motivation & results are part of the process.  

I’m sure it’s probably mental.  But I feel like since finishing PiYo over the weekend, in TWO DAYS I’ve gone backwards.  I don’t know why.  I just woke up this morning, looked in the mirror and wasn’t happy.  I’m refusing to get on a scale, and I’m refusing to take any measurements.  I haven’t done anything different (in a bad way), my nutrition is still good, my workouts are still on, I’m just….unhappy with what I’m seeing right now.  So if I’m a little quiet for a few days, that’s why.  I can’t really post motivational things for YOU if MY OWN mind isn’t right.  So…that’s where I’m hiding.  

Work to live, live to create, be happy, shape your own life! 

It’s totally worth it!  If you’re working hard to improve your life, love what you do!  <3 

PiYo Review – Week 8

PiYo Review: Week #8 – Finishing Strong.

This is week 8.  I can’t believe that I’m at the end of my PiYo journey.  It’s been a true challenge, both physically and mentally.  I’ve struggled with being sick, having low motivation, living a really full social life, and I’ve had my good days too!  While this blog isn’t a full before and after (that will be in the next couple of days), week 8 was…

YUP.  My healthy stuff tastes better than 99% of the junk food out there.  Chocolate, pizza, tacos, cakes, peanut butter pancakes….yeah, all stuff that can be made healthy!

My FAVORITE chocolate shake?  Easy.

<3 Ahhhh yes.  

Not the FINAL final pics, but these are my “unofficial #PiYo results!” Um, yeah, LOVE this program! 😍 all the #results with none of the impact or equipment! #ChaleneJohnson does it again!

Eating clean doesn’t have to be boring, gross, plain or repetitive.  Eat clean, mix it up!
