I think it was in June I decided to get a personal trainer and focus on my health. I had gained a little extra weight back from the hard work I put in earlier this year and wanted to get it off plus some. June rolls around and I’m seeing my trainer 3 days a week but not quite taking it seriously.
July hits so I’m beginning to focus on me more and change my days to 6am workout 5 days a week. For the past couple of weeks I’ve been hitting it heavy and I’ve lost a few pounds but the inches are really coming off! The thing I fear most is me moving to another city soon and not being able to find a trusted trainer in that city. I love the little community I am in now, and hate to leave but I need change. I’ll be blogging about that change here soon but one thing at a time. Let’s remember through this that we still need to take care of ourselves ♥️ my goals will be reached! I’m not giving up, I’ve come too far for that!
I saw a post today that got me thinking and along the lines it said, “I’m so obsessed with surviving that I’ve been forgetting to live” and that has stuck with me all day. Yes we are in a pandemic and we have to protect ourselves but there’s no reason we still can’t live and do the things we love just put a spin on it.
I am around elderly and babies quite often so I’m very careful with who I go around and where I go also I don’t want to be sick 🤷🏾♀️ but the being inside all the time is a lot, I don’t have a husband or children or someone I can just be with daily here at home. My work has occupied my personal space enough there’s no way I can let it all be taken from me. Some days I’m good and other days I feel like I’m losing it. I know I can’t be the only one having these up and down days.
So I am going to do what I can, when I can to take more time for me again with limits of course. All I do is work at my full time job then spend most of my other time working on my businesses and next steps with those. All these things are great but going back to the quote we have got to take time for ourselves and remember to live and love. Although we are limited to what we can do and where we can go we must still love life to the fullest! We only have one to live. ♥️
Do you ever feel like time is just passing by and you have no way of ever feeling caught up or reaching your goals and or dreams? I know sometimes I do especially since COVID hit.
I was fortunate enough to have my job continue on and be able to work from home. Since working from home and having to be at home all the time it’s definitely been an adjustment. My safe place is now also my stressful place. So I went through stages of I can get through this to this is very depressing. Emotions are I’m sure all over the place for so many people, I can’t imagine adding to many other factors of marriages and children into the equation. So on top of me being a Business Analyst which I love dearly since I came into the profession, I’m also a small business owner. So running the first business with a co-owner and starting a new business is hard!
It’s like during the day I’m working on my full time job, trying to perfect my craft, coming up with new ideas and strategies on lunches, breaks and all hours of the night. Putting in orders, inquiries, studies and practice. It’s like can I just get 5 more hours added to each day lol. I know to be where I want I just have to keep fighting, and probably work better on my time management and prioritizing my activities when I get off work so I’m not over exhausting myself all the time. I’m always multitasking. If I’m not sometimes I feel a little lost like something is missing or has been forgotten. It’s crazy how that happens.
I don’t see how some people have full days, can still cook and clean, exercise, have their water intake up, flawless skin and still get good sleep without any burn out! Like how is that possible? Or is it unrealistic and I’m just seeing it from the outside and not what is… sometimes it feels like things are kind of back to normal and that anxiety kicks in but that’s where I push and I fight! What’s successful without a little mud and dirt on the road ♥️
So I’ve grown up always loving art, and the human body. Growing up now into adulthood society has changed so much and it’s all about the woman’s body and having a certain shape in order to be beautiful! A friend and I started a lingerie business! We want to be able to make all women of all shapes and sizes not only smile but feel beautiful and confident about themselves. ❤️
But I didn’t want to stop there I want to help women see that we are beautiful, we are magical and no one can take that away from us! Boudoir is a route I decided to dive into and I am excited about this journey and where it’s going to take me! I’m excited about the women I am going to meet along the way!
I plan on blogging about my journey in life and my businesses! I hope you all come along this ride with me 🥰
