30 Days to a Happier, Healthier Me
Do you ever get the feeling that you’re going around in circles? Whether it’s with school, work, organizing, health, fitness, etc? Some days I wonder if I’ll ever have it fully together and the truth is, probably not. Being a mother and business owner, it’s not always easy to stay on task when life throws you curve balls. If you have little ones, then I’m sure you can relate.
I’m not going to go into details in this blog post but the past year has been filled with ups and downs, and there are still things I have to deal with. But with that being said, my health and fitness has always been the first thing to hit the back burner, when I’m going through a lot. As some of you may know, a little over a year ago I started my health and fitness blog posts, which are 100% accurate in the lifestyle I try and live but they aren’t always on the top of my to do list.
The more I started to think about this and how it affects my daily life outside of myself, I needed to create a plan. After moving and getting organized, I found myself back to either not eating, or choosing horrible food options filled with sugar. There was no sign of weight gain but how is my body suppose to function on little to no food and sugar? After a few days, I was moody, drowsy, and had little to no motivation. On top of my horrible eating habits, I was beginning to become sleep deprived from stress and work. Once I noticed my eating and sleep schedule were the cause of these problems, I kicked it into high gear. My initial food options weren’t the best but I needed food to function. I started eating more and getting my spirits up the day before Mother’s Day; even though I indulged in waffles and beignets from Another Broken Egg Café (AMAZING) I began to feel HUGE but luckily by Monday, I was back to having energy!
With all of the being said, I decided to create a challenge for myself. There’s no diet or workout plan, just 30 days to a happier, healthier me. I’m choosing food options that will give me energy and workout routines that keep me motivated. By giving yourself that mental vision of 30 days to make yourself better, it will help tremendously. Without taking care of myself, how am I suppose to run around with a 4 year old, run a business, and pay my bills? It wouldn’t be possible.
Now! For the next 30 days I will be writing down what I’m eating and my workout routines, and at the end of the 30 days, I will blog my progress and thoughts throughout the 30 days. What many people forget is that this is a lifestyle change, not a temporary fix. I’ve gone through stages of running 3.5 miles a day, to only lifting weights, to trying to gain a butt. The problem is finding what works for you and that’s the process I’m still working on. If you’re reading this blog post, then write down some of your goals and how you can create a happier, healthier you in 3o days!
Stay Strong & True to Yourself <3
