Take a few minutes to think about where you were last year at this time. Dec ‘17. Think about what you wanted (+ or -), how you felt (happy, proud, frustrated, loving, empty), how you were acting, who was in your life. Now, we’re here a year later.. WILD RIGHT?! Yes. Ok, so…what’s different? Or maybe what’s the same?
For me, I think back to walking into Crossfit & complaining that I just ate a 10 piece nugget right before & how the workout was gonna be tough. Or laughing that I just ate a large fry “like an idiot.” But they were all my choices. I wasn’t happy with them. I can picture myself going to work out, just to go straight to the McDonald’s drive thru — and not bc I was hungry but bc I needed something to make me feel better in that moment, fast food. Chicken nuggets specifically LOL. Funny but serious. I didn’t realize the role it was playing until I SAW MY CREDIT CARD BILL. I can literally remember myself always saying BK nuggets were the best bc it was only $1.49 for a 10-piece… like I was proud of them and myself or something.
I knew overall in my life that I needed to make a lot of changes for myself. I was filling voids to keep my mind off of the tough questions and decisions I wanted to continue to avoid.
I made a commitment to myself Jan 1 & I’ve stuck with it bc I know I have to. “All progress comes from breaking patterns.” And now I’m sitting here eating this bomb dinner that I made for myself & it’s healthy & it feels so good. I’m no chef/rarely make an effort to cook but when I do eat good, it’s moments like this that I’m reminded HARD why my decisions are so important. We have the power to create these moments.
HONESTLY- the “friends” that hate on you for eating healthy, trying to better yourself mentally, emotionally, spiritually, physically etc… SAY BYE BYE TO THEM👋🏼. You deserve better than that.
It’s about being the best you that you’re capable of being. ✨ Every day is a day for celebrating love, appreciation & respect for yourself, make sure you’re sharing it with the right people 🖤 It’s possible to make important life changes when you take it day by day.
