Fitness Confession……

So as you know I’m all about eating right, excercising, eliminatiing all the things that will hinder me from reaching my goals. Well at least I have been TRYING to be all about that.

My confession today is all about falling down and picking yourself back up. Yesterday I had the worst cravings in the whole entire earth. I started off good. I had a nice healthy smoothie but then closer to about 10 a.m. the worst cravings hit. I wanted CARBS. Granted carbs are not bad IF you chose the right ones, the complex ones of course. But let me tell ya, there was NOTHING complex about the carbs i chose yesterday. I had a nice size bag of LAYS potato chips. Afterwards I said ok, that’s enough im not eating anything else that is just junk like that, and so i proceeded to eat my salad that i brought for lunch. In the midst of me doing so my co-worker comes over and says, want some cookie cake. I know you don’t know me but, I LOVE CHOCOLATE CHIP COOKIES!! They are a weakness, and now she is offering me that in the form of a cake. i couldn’t turn it down. So i scarfed that down. THEN about an hour or two later I want more sweats, so i go to the vending machine and grab a twx. Im just a big fat mess at this point. But the buck doesn’t stop there people. I head to Whole Foods thinking ill pick a healthy snack. I guess it would have been healthy had i not ate all that horrible stuff prior. I get a six in sandwich on WHITE BREAD. It wasn’t really all that good but i ate it nonetheless. THEN when i get home i want to eat MORE. So around 9 pm my husband goes and gets popeye’s chicken. OMG it was so good!! i had a piece of chicken and two biscuits. And then I had the nerve to go to sleep right afterwards.

Needless to so though peeps, I felt horrible. Which actually motivated me to wake up and do my workout. Just because fell doesn’t mean I have to stay down. Its really all about being consistent. And realizing that eating right and exercising is not something that is temporary, it should be a way of life…..PERIOD! 

Today though i have been just as hungry but i came prepared. I brought foods that I knew would satisfy my cravings but are healthy and less in fat and carbs and saturated fats.

At any rate I am going to succeed in making this a way of life FO LIFE!! I hope you all have a successful day!!

Negative Mind….Negative Life

I have a friend, won’t mention the name of this friend but, for as long as I’ve known her she’s been to herself and for the most part not the most pleasant person to deal with if you don’t really know her and she doesn’t really know you.

Over time we kind of drifted I got married, she had three kids, i mean we just got busy with life. Then facebook got created and of course we reconnected. But, I see things have not changed. Matter of fact things have only gotten worse. It’s like NONE of her statuses are positive in any way shape or form. And for a minute there i found myself doing that on my statuses. I would complain about people in general. But i realized that I was just promoting negativity and not helping not one single person. And really that is the same thing she is doing. She just seems overly bitter with life. Overly focused on the flaws and imperfections of others not realizing that she herself has just as many flaws as the rest of us. 

In a way I feel sorry for her because it has to be an exhausted an stressful life to sit and just constantly complain about the things people do ALL THE TIME. It’s much easier to focus on the good of people. And if people are so bad, why not be encouraging and motivating to help others be a better person.

I’ve always been a person that LOVES to see people succeed. Granted though people can irritate me but i have to check myself and realize that i can irritate a person  just as much as another can irritate me. How do I know this? Well I can just ask my husband LOL. I’m sure i have irritated him numerous of times.

So what’s my point well my point is simply this. You get out of life what you put in. If you are constantly putting out negative energy with your comments and not going out there finding joy and excitement in life. You are definitely going to have a negative  life. plain and simple. 

Since I’ve changed my outlook on life and just really focused on the success of other people it’s been a whole lot more fulfilling. Being merciful, forgiving, kind and so on and so forth can  go a long way. And not only that it can lesson the stress in your life. I mean have enough stress as it is, Am I right? I mean we go to work, we deal with the kids, we deal with our spouses, and so on and so forth so, I mean why add to it? If anything a person would want to minimize the stress, am i correct? 

One way that I am able to be more patient and kind and understanding and not so judgmental is by reading my bible. You know God was kind and merciful and patient, and still is with ALOT of people in the bible. So imitating him and applying the principles found in the scriptures is a great way to make those changes and be a better you.
