Happy Thanksgiving to my Canadian friends!!
What a beautiful morning it is!
Woke up this morning feeling grateful and inspired. Hit up the gym and had a great cardio workout.
Felt amazing at the gym this morning. I’m not too sure if it’s “The Mondays” or what…. What I mean by “The Mondays” is that sometimes people find it easier to begin new things on a Monday.
That’s what I did. I’ve started from scratch again. Back to planning my meals, staying positive, counting my calories in and out. Making sure I get all my veggies. Cutting back on the starches and fruit — personal choice. ALL food groups are important to incorporate into your daily diets.
Did a great cardio workout today. 30 minutes on the Ellipitcal followed by a 5 minute cool down on the treadmill. Tomorrow going to incorporate weights. I have a book that has strength training exercises from Bob Harper. So excited to get to my goals and help my friends/family reach their goals on the way!!
The last couple of months have been quite rough on me. I suffered from major depression and was not myself at all. Not going to go into details.. but I was in a really dark period of time. Nothing seemed to help. Got placed on medications.. which I’m trying to ween myself off of — at doctors discretion of course. Going to be visiting a Psychiatrist to help. I’m getting myself through this.
The worlds most natural remedy for depression is healthy food choices and exercise and creating a positive day for yourself.
I wake up now and say a little prayer and plan on going to bed doing the same thing. I have two guardian angels up there for me.. both rooting me on to my goals. Both know how great I can do (AND DID)..
So like I said, its time to get back at it.
I’m hoping this positive change inspires others to do so as well.
I want to be healthy to be around for my son and family for as long as I can be.
So here’s to the first day of the rest of my healthy life.
Lets do this altogether.
This blog will include inspiration, motivation, recipes and sometimes even my venting..lol.
Stay tuned for daily updates and articles!
Thank you all. Better get busy on these meal plans!
