For the past week, I have committed myself to eating clean foods only. I have only bought food twice and I have made nutrient rich lunches and dinners to bring with me to work. I have noticed a few things as I start this lifestyle change journey:
- I have more energy and I am able to work longer days
- My focus has been better during the day time hours
- I am calmer – I don’t feel as angry and bitter
- I don’t have any desire to buy food unless I really don’t have any more food
- I actually enjoy meal prepping
- I still need to establish a cut of time for eating
Things are definitely improving diet wise and I think I can commit to eating better and preparing my own meals. Yes, it can be tough and time consuming at times but it is totally worth it. I will follow up with you all and let you know how things are going.
I apologize for being super absent on the blog lately but I just haven’t really felt like writing anything. I have composed a set of goals for 2019 which I plan on sharing with all of you very soon, however, I just haven’t been in the mood to go through all of my aspirations for this year. So far, 2019 has been pretty great. It was my birthday on January 24 (24 on the 24th!!!) and I had a great time at a cool bar with a few of my close friends. I have also been incorporating low impact cardio into my daily regime for the past 2 weeks and I have never been more proud of myself for the level of discipline I am showing.
My number one goal in 2019 is to lose 40 pounds. I have seen so many people do it and I think that I can too. I am tired of gaining weight and seeing cute outfits that I would love to fit into, but I just cannot. I have been making little changes to my diet and athletics lately and I hope that these efforts will become a lifestyle change for me overall. My goal is to be in better health long term and to also feel like a cute girl in her 20’s again. After the terrible 2018 I had (and y’all would know if you really followed my blog), I think its time for me to feel like me again and for me to feel happy and amazing again. 2019 is the perfect year to boss up (as Rick Ross tweets daily). I hope that I will be able to update you on my great progress one day soon!
Bye for now my lovelies.
I am at that age in life where its time to apply for full time employment (I am 23). While I have landed a pretty cool internship in the past few weeks, it is always great to continue to look for new strategies to implement into future interviews. I found this article on the 10 Best Questions you should ask in a job interview to help you stand out. I hope that this article can benefit someone else in the future!
I will be honest – I am not Ariana Grande’s biggest fan, however, this song has grown on me. God is a woman is a pop song from Grande’s new album, Sweetner. I like the bass drop and I think its a fun song to work out at the gym too. Obviously, its quite popular right now because it is her but its actually pretty good. I especially like the part where the choir joins her at the end. You have probably already heard this too but if you haven’t then go and give it a listen!
For the first time in over 6 years, I have straight A’s in all of my academic classes. That sounds amazing, right? Yes it does, but it also sucks that I have been in my undergraduate program for longer than the usual 4 years. I feel like I should be further in my life and that I should be at work or in grad school. I feel like my life should be more together than it currently is. While I do feel that I am behind in my life, getting good grades has once again proven to me that I do have intelligence and I can go as far in my life as I am willing to push myself. I think we all need to find something that makes us feel as if we can push ourselves past the limits we have set for ourselves. Set a goal and go for something. Maybe at the end of this, I will be fully proud of myself.
Lately, I have been going through a very rough time emotionally, mentally and spiritually. I feel like nothing in my life can get better. Its hard to get out of bed in the morning. I am struggling with the most mundane of things. Yesterday, Khloe Kardashian (Yeah, I know but don’t judge), posted a series of tweets and honestly they calmed down my anxiety instantly. I hope that maybe this can resonate with you as well. We are not perfect human beings but maybe we can be better people and our lives can get better as well. I hope that this can happy for me in the future.
