Now I'll Tell You Everything

Positive or negative, those closest to us, usually have the most influence. Reblog if your inner circle helps you stay ABOVE!

You know the old saying, “Tell me who your friends are and I’ll tell you who you are.” It definitely applies here. I surround myself with great people who are above the influence because ultimately they inevitably encourage and push me to remain above the influence :)

Silly me for thinking I could continue to go to class and my internship as I normally would. It just so happens that both of these places blast their air conditioning to the point that I am stifled just being there. And when it comes down to it I’d rather take an attendance hit then sit there and get worse as my nose drips and drops on to my desk. Me = 0 Sinus infection = 1

Throwback Thursday!!! 4 years ago I started this journey on self discovery and engaged learning and as the end of this segment draws near I can’t help but to feel a bit of nostalgia. At a time when I had recently experienced loss (my cousin was murdered) tough decisions (having a baby or going to college) and general instability in my life (depression and isolation from others) this place was my home for a year. I met some of my closest friends, mourned love lost, and cried myself to sleep many times in this building. But I wouldn’t change a thing because this building for me symbolizes change and recovery.

Week One!

Weekly challenge: Pick one unhealthy food or habit you have and aim to go 7 days without eating/doing it.

I am goingto go without soda and juice for this weeks challenge and I’m also going to make it a point to eat breakfast every day.

How tall are you, what do you currently weigh, and what do you hope to weigh after the 60 days? (Be realistic)

I am 5 feet and 2 inches tall.

I currently weigh 160 pounds.

I hope to weigh 140 pounds at the most after the 60 days.

Day one:

Started the morning off by drinking the last of my rasberry lemonade. It was a bittersweet moment for sure as it hit me that from now on the only other juice I’d be having from now on is gatorade. This water thing is going to be a lot harder then I thought lol. But there was a party in my tummy this morning and three French Toast sticks from burger king came, and it was a grand ol time if I do say so myself :) And so my journey begins….

Nom Nom :)
And when I feel myself giving up I remember these words.  “Work hard. Play hard” and that keeps me going!

Still sneezing, still coughing, and still unable to breathe through my nose. But what else is new lol. Feeling great after my workout and then that great shower tonight. All in all I’m hoping I tired myself out enough to fall asleep at a decent hour because three pills later I’m still wide awake and feeling this sinus infection.

After many failed attempts of trying to get fit and healthy, I’m giving it the old go around again hoping that my  maintenance of this blog will be the push and encouragement I need to commit to something like this. Night 1 went pretty well I would say :)
