Admit it, most of us have made several attempts to live a healthier lifestyle by eating better, working out more, etc, etc, etc. I've tried countless times and each time I fell off very quickly due to lack of discipline, lack of commitment and patience. Well I'm at it again and I'm hoping this time is different. Lord please let it be! Somehow I feel like it will be, but I'm learning that my quitter attitude is more profound than I thought and I'm also learning not to let setbacks stop me from reaching for my goals. Most importantly, I'm learning that each day is new day to begin again.
This go round, my healthy journey started very abruptly on a day where I was in a horrible mood with a long running effed up mindset. One recent Sunday morning, me and my effed up mood sat down to sulk and of course get on social media. As I scrolled through my Twitter feed, I noticed some posts from a hash tag I had participated in before. #ThinkBIGSundayWithMarsha is all about posting positive messages to inspire and it instantly helped my mood. As I scrolled through the hash tag postings, I began to ask myself, "When?" It was at that moment I went in the kitchen and started slicing lemons, limes and cucumbers that I bought a week earlier for detox water and since then I've been off and running...well walking. I could go on and on about ups and downs I've had since starting this journey, but keep scrolling to see the discoveries I've made over the past few weeks of my health journey. Voila!
P.S. I'm 4 1/2 pounds down and so grateful!
