If you’re following along, you may have noticed I’ve been at a hault. There’s no explination other than I’m new to consistent blogging. Last month I joined several others in my Young Living community and dove into the My Healthy Day Challenge. It was eye-opening, and I learned a lot about eating clean. I felt energized with 4 workouts per week. But after successfully completing this milestone, I admittedly caved. “My “diet” is over. Now I can celebrate!” Enter Superbowl Sunday. Pizza, dip, chips, cheese, cookies, some veggies, more chips. What!? Yea, I’m not proud. I ashamedly stepped on the scale and to my UTTER disappointment had put on about 5 lbs! I celebrated my accomplishment so nonchalantly, and honestly feel defeated.
I am not trying to hide anything here. Rather, I’m stating the TRUTH. I just went on vacation and had more cheat meals than I care to admit. When I arrived back in town I just felt unhealthy. I went to bed Sunday night without dinner. I wasn’t hungry. And to my surprise (and delight), I woke up at 5:30 a.m. for a bootcamp class that turned into a private training session. Living a healthy lifestyle is not about good choices here and there. It is about consistency. It’s about determination. It’s will power. It’s saying “no” (and “yes”) to become the best version of you!
I am thankful for friends and family who love me no matter my slip ups. I adore my Young Living community for rooting me on and being the best encouragers. If you feel stuck in a rut, you’re not alone. If you want to live a more healthy lifestyle (while creating financial freedom), I’d LOVE to help you! Simply leave your email in the comments section or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. I will be in touch with some information I know you will use.
Hello and Happy New Year! If you’re like me, you set resolutions every year only to find yourself right where you started. Well, this year will be different! I am determined!
My amazing Young Living Team is embarking on a health challenge, and I have decided to participate. My goal is to lose 10 lbs. in the next 30 days of this challenge and continue with the ultimate goal of losing 30 lbs! I am feeling good. Just yesterday I went grocery shopping and bought an enormous amount of fresh produce. I chopped my way into making a delicious Thai cashew salad tonight using my new Magic Bullet for the dressing. Tomorrow I plan to make a smoothie for breakfast with my new toy. 🙂 Here is more information on the MY HEALTHY DAY challenge.
I am using Young Living Products to assist me in losing weight. Balance Complete is a meal replacement powder I will mix into my morning smoothies. It packs a ton of nutrients and vitamins and just has 190 calories per serving. I will take one pack of Slique Slim packs 45 minutes before a light lunch and one pack 45 minutes before a nice, balanced dinner. These capsules help in managing satiation. My goal is to drink AT LEAST half my weight in water to which I will add refreshing grapefruit oil. This aids in helping one to feel full. Last, but certainly not least, I will work out at least 4 times per week. I just joined a gym and am looking forward to a Zumba workout tomorrow!
I decided to commit a blog post to this to a) keep me accountable and b) encourage any of you out there who would like to join us. I’d love to have others alongside me on this journey! Drop me a line at email@example.com if you’d like more information.
I’ve included my “Before” photo and will continue to post throughout this month. Stay tuned!
