Sometimes as a mom, girlfriend, blogger, social media guru and everything in between you lose sight of your goals. We had a loss in the family and going through old things,moving and just forgetting about myself I have kind of “let go.” So here I am. Back from New York because we went to kind of renew us, see if we could really work and for his birthday too. Either way, I’m back and New York really got to me. It made me realize that I am a serious slacker and hanging out with Chad’s lawyer and doctor friends made me feel very sad. As they talked about going on vacation after vacation. I realized that I wanted that. I wanted to go to Australia, England, San Diego, on a cruise and so much more is on my bucket list. I want to take my kids to Disney World and to other places that they will remember and if we continue like this, its just not possible. As I was leaving the city, I realized 2 things.
- I never want to tell my children that we don’t have money for something. I remember hearing that with my kids and that is not fair to them. It’s not their fault that I was/am irresponsible. They shouldn’t have to lack the traveling, finer things of life and honestly, I don’t want to lack that either.
- I need to stop being lazy. I want to lose this last 15-20lbs I have, I want to be a better mother, writer, Visalian, friend, and so much more. I have been living kind of half-assed through life and I don’t want to be like everyone who is doing the same thing. I want to help people get over their fears and to stop sabotaging themselves.
I will start with my body and weight loss. I know I cannot control where my weight loss comes from, but I can control my eating habits, working out and how I take care of myself. So I will be restarting my 90 Day Challenge. I will post my new measurements tomorrow. I’m going to prove to myself that I’m not going to quit and I’m going to take care of myself. If you feel like you are ready to start your challenge, to push yourself please message me. Like me, talk is just talk until you put actions in to place. You deserve more than just wanting to lose weight, stop making the excuse of I dont’ have self-control. You do, I do, and we choose to make excuses. Come with me on this no excuses challenge and bust your butt with me before the holiday season to look great in front of your family and friends. While I would love for you to choose my challenge, the Visalus challenge, I ultimately want you to challenge yourself. You deserve life, not just waking up and doing the same thing over and over again, but to wake up excited! To wake up happy, feel good and to be motivated. I challenge you to explore yourself, your passions and what you want as a person. Not a mother, brother, sister, son, daughter or whatever…. but as you. Create a “to-live” list. Not a bucket list, but a live list, a be happy list or whatever you want to call it. Create it! Create you . Stay tuned for some awesomeness coming your way!
