Don't wait around for it...CHASE IT!
If you're tired of saying "tomorrow" then do something about it TODAY!
I lived that life of "tomorrow" and it did nothing for me. If anything, it helped me doubt myself even more :(
Get the tools needed to succeed and take it wherever you want to go!
I am here to provide my struggles and successes, recipes, tips, workouts and MORE.
Don't go at it alone. Find that support system that will stand by you no matter what. Family and friends are out there so CHASE THEM! Well don't really chase them, but ya know what I mean! Ha!!
Tip: It's very important to SHOP SMART at the grocery store.
Choose items wisely and do NOT put items in your cart that are an issue for you. Issue as in, TRIGGER FOODS. If those foods are going to call out your name in the middle of the night or haunt you throughout the day, GET RID OF THEM OR NEVER BRING THEM HOME! There ya go: PROBLEM SOLVED.
For me, I have an issue with pretzels.
Sounds silly...how could pretzels be harmful right? Well I have NO control when I'm near a bag of the unsalted, sourdough, sticks, twists, super size...ANY pretzel :( so if they make it into my basket at the store, it goes downhill from there. I have to be smart, never go to the store hungry and I must stick to the list...
Took a trip to Trader Joes today-one of my favorite stores. BUT there are unhealthy options everywhere, TJ's has them too so you must be smart, stay focused and stick to the LIST!
Here's a snapshot of our goods!
Lunch today was all prepared ahead of time!
Took minutes to heat up and eat! No excuses!
1 cup spring mix topped with sprinkle of sunflower seeds and 1/2 of a Laughing Cow wedge with red wine vinegar TJ's dressing-it's YUMMY! One slice Ezekiel garlic toast and BBQ leftovers! Mmmm! There was another little piece of meat under the toast-it's hiding!
Tip: Find NEW things!
Look at this find at Kroger! Greek cream cheese! I compared it to both 1/3 less fat cream cheese and Neufchael cheese and it has less calories, fat, and TWICE THE PROTEIN/serving! Woohoo!
Tip: A great snack- 1 apple cinnamon rice cake topped with 1 serving cream cheese and sprinkled with cinnamon! Flavorful and tastes like dessert! Definitely kicks the sweet tooth to the curb :) Next time I'll try with my NEW FIND!
Tip: HATERS ARE MOTIVATORS!
If you won't listen to me then listen to my son's shirt! LOL!
Do NOT allow others to enable you to fail. Push yourself. You are your ONLY competition each and every day. BUT allow those "haters" to act as added fuel to your motivation! Allow that fuel to light the fire inside of you and say THIS TIME WILL BE DIFFERENT!
I am in control and NOBODY is going to stop me! Boom :)
