HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!!!
Today marks the first page in this chapter of our book of life....how exciting! I like to think of my life like a book. I don't know how many chapters my book will hold, but I do know that each day gives me the opportunity to create whatever my heart desires! A chapter to me is made up of 365 days. This is chapter 45 for me as I will turn 45 years old in July. It's actually kind of fun to think of it in this way in my opinion. It gives me a visual and has turned the mundane idea of days turning into weeks into months into something positive that I have a lot of control over. What do I mean? Well, here goes:
A lot of folks think we have little control over our lives. I think that couldn't be further from the truth. I know we can't always control what happens to us in our lives, BUT we can control how we react, how we think about it, and how we use it to grow. This applies to writing the story of your life. Use each page (day) to create your dream story. It's up to you.....don't let anyone else hold the pen!
Back in September I took a VERY honest look at myself in the mirror. I knew I wasn't going to get any younger as Father Time has a way of clicking by day after day. I also knew that I wasn't honestly doing a very good job at all when it came to my physical health. I was pretty much eating whatever I wanted to and I definitely didn't have an exercise program for myself. So, I decided that I was going to change that. And yes, it really was that easy. I just got fed up with things melding together and not being focused in this area of my life. I knew nobody was going to fix me....that was entirely up to me. I also knew there was no magic pill that would create this change for me. Don't get me wrong....there are lots of great supplements out there that can help us, but they aren't going to do it all for us! #TRUTH
So, it's up to me.....and to you.....to create a lasting, positive change in our lives!!
I decided at the end of September 2017 to take a very deep look in the mirror at myself. I knew I could make improvements. For some reason the KETOGENIC lifestyle jumped out at me. I began on a Wednesday (9/27/17) to be exact. I wasn't calculated with it and I just dove in. I learned along the way. I've learned a lot in the past 3 months. I look towards 2018 with the most hope I've ever had in my life......hope that isn't just hoping if that makes sense. Hope in the sense that I KNOW good things are coming for me in the square of my life. What does that mean? The square of my life involves four things (similar to the four corners of a square). They are: physical, mental, spiritual, and financial. I KNOW 2018 is going to be an amazing year and I'm doing all I can to ensure that it turns out that way. Let's start with the physical in this particle blog post. Here's what has happened for me so far and what am I doing to help others? This!!
I am DOWN 23 lbs in 12 1/2 weeks!!
