Ahh 💪✔️

Work out done. Felt good as it’s been a while.
My smoking cessation class is this afternoon. I have to come clean with the group as I haven’t stuck to my plan but I never give up!!

On a more positive note, I got into the masters program for health informatics.
Now I just need to pass this last course I’m in for my bachelors. I hate challenge based classes! You basically teach yourself. 🧐

make it a good day. I always try.

Over a week

so it’s been over a week since my last workout.

My body feels it. Doesn’t take long to decline. I did some heavy cleaning for 2 hours yesterday and today my body aches.

My son is coming home today from the hospital so that will free my mind.

I just didn’t feel like working out and I know working out relieves stress and could have helped me in this dire time but I’m human so this was the outcome. Smoking cigarettes and not working out.

I bought my son a gym membership that allows to bring a “friend” so this is a good time to get a workout in and spend time with my son 🙂

Make it a good day! 🌞

So much to achieve

wow this morning I sit on my couch having my coffee and watching my frog thinking … we (I’m) always looking to “better” myself. Become the person I want to be.  Be the person I want to be. That’s what I tell my grown kids. Be the person you want to be. Every day work at it. A little bit of work every day pays off, that’s for sure!!
I’ve been “working” on myself for years. I believe we all have room for growth and life teaches us lessons so we can grow from them.

Right now I’m working on being more analytical and less emotional.  Thinking before I speak. Wow these two things are so hard for me.

Anyway, I’m also working on other things like taking care of myself.
Got my hair colored ,highlights and cut yesterday! I feel great! Saturday getting eyelash lift and tint.  😍

Big new, today is day  1  to quitting those nasty  cigarettes.

I have a wellness coach I speak with once per week to guide me in this process of quitting for good!

And a deep breathe in. Thinking .. I’m in my last class before I graduate with my bachelors. Stick it out!! It’s almost done.

Positive thinking and always moving forward. Changing things up to get through the bumps.

Feeling good in this dreary rainy day! Nice I quit smoking in a day like this! Ha! Don’t have to go out in this crappy weather. Already a plus!!

I’m going through a process right now. It feels bigger than my normal “work at myself to be a better person”

I feel like I’m going through a metamorphosis.
Or could be a mid life crisis, as they say lol   😝 I’m at that age.
What ever it is , I’m embracing it!

Make it a great day!

Working on thinking before speaking

thinking before reacting. Let’s face it women are emotion creatures and yes their are men To0 of course! but this isn’t about them 😉

im a middle aged woman still achieving in life. Achieving academically  and emotionally. I’ve been trying real hard to think before I speak! Think more   This  shit  is  hard ! I’ve been practicing at work and now have to bring it to my personal life. That’s even harder for me.

On another note I’ve been working out almost every day. Skipping today and my plans are to workout out tomorrow, do my homework and get out of the house for a little bit. Sunday’s my boyfriend works and I usually revert back to my old habits for that day which leads to a depressive day.
I give good advice and don’t take my own but that’s changing. It’s easy to revert back to old habits but you have to fight it, be strong and make yourself do the things that you know will help you in the long run!
Cheers to a new day of a new you   the you you want to be!!

21 day goal challenge Instead of 14

I decided to make it 21 days instead of 14 and adding less cigarettes to the daily goal challenge.

After these 21 days I hope to be a few pounds lighter and have 5 cigarettes less a day!
