WHAAAAT... second week in a row?!

Look at me learning how to be consistent! I've been working on following through and continuing to follow through on a regular basis, and it seems like I'm slowly starting to re-train my brain. It's really not easy to figure out the best way to do things based on your habits. I'm someone who loves when I already know how to do things and HATE when I'm not good at something right away. Anyone else relate? Doesn't make any kind of sense if you think about it. It's been that way my whole life though. As a kid, I would cry if I wasn't perfect. Always wanted to get the best grades because that was one thing I could be great at. I wasn't popular or had many friends (at times I didn't have any). I may not have been good at fitting in, but my brain and talent made me seem better than I thought others thought of me. As I've gotten older, I don't necessarily want to fit in anymore and have learned to appreciate my uniqueness. But I still struggle with what other's think of me.


Speaking of learning to be great and consistent at things, I've been working out and eating better the last 3 weeks. I've been doing pretty well so far and learning more about my limitations. I may not be losing weight yet BUT my measurements have been getting so much better. Honestly, I don't really care what the scale says now. As long as I'm looking and feeling better and clothes are fitting better, that's all that truly matters. I'm showing up for myself daily and I'm so proud of myself for that. I can feel my brain shifting into a different mode. It takes about 3 weeks for your brain and body to get used to a new habit. So, I'm right at that point now, finally reaching the other side of it.


I'm in a much better headspace than I was comparatively to 3 weeks ago, and it's all due to consistency and taking care of my health. The constant moment to moment decisions that I have to make are getting easier to choose. Positivity is more abundant because I make it a point to feed myself happy things all day long. Some people just need more patience and require more work to get to a place they can function at peak performance. It's really frustrating to be me sometimes, but I'm really happy that I'm me even if I think being a "normie" is easier. All good things don't come easily, so creating a life and character that I'm proud of is worth the struggle. Keep watching...

Well, it's been a helluva last couple of months to say the least. In the middle of September, my elderly parents asked me to come help them move from North Carolina to Florida. I was planning to conti

Don't you wish that finding the answers to life's questions were as easy as a shake of a magic 8 ball? If only it were that simple. Lately I've been working through some internal uncertainties and hav
