Consistency is Key!

I have worked out for 27 days out of the past 32 days! It was not as easy as I thought it would be. Lack of motivation, food, and laziness pushed me to the verge of quitting or skipping a day.

I found that once I was able to push past these setbacks, it was smooth sailing from there!

Consistency is critical in every workout regimen. Keep pushing! And never quit! Honestly, there is no reason why anyone doesn’t have time to care for themselves. Being active is a part of living a healthy lifestyle.

Make yourself proud. Run, read, workout, study!

Also, I would like to apologize for not blogging daily. I too am faced with consistent obstacles that must be overcome. I will continue to do my best to post daily. I love this blog. I also love those that read it.Β πŸ’•

Lack of Motivation? πŸŠ

Yeah, me too…

I found myself without motivation a lot in the past. But, not lately!

I worked out 16 days out of the past 19! I now run a mile (for about 12-14 minutes), do 110 situps, and 4 sets of 10 pushups!

It may not seem like much to you, but I am very proud of myself. I was living a very sedentary style and ate whatever I wanted. Now I watch what I eat and drink, and am active!

I won’t stop any time soon! I hope you too, will join me in my quest! Living a healthier lifestyle.

Back to the lack of motivation point…

Do you find yourself starting a healthy workout regimen and then stopping after a couple days? I have some tips to help you out!

  1. Utilize a whiteboard – Write down your workout regimen or goal. And tally up how many days you have completed! This has motivated me. I strive to achieve my exercise routine daily to rack up my tallies! My goal is to cover my whole whiteboard!
  2. Change sleeping schedule – Do you sleep late and wake up around noon? That used to be my problem. I slept whenever I was done watching videos or playing video games. Change your sleeping schedule by sleeping earlier! Heck, even try to become a morning person! (I am still working on that, I wake up around 9:30 a.m.)
  3. Drink plenty of water – Cut the soda and sugary drinks. I think it helped me out!
  4. Get a workout buddy! – Maybe you need a workout buddy? It can be a family member, friend, or even an animal! (I prefer dogs, I love dogs)

Try these tips! And let me know if they helped! If you have any helpful suggestions or motivation to share with others, don’t hesitate to comment! πŸ’š

Get Active!!!

So, you’re wondering where I’ve been…

Well, it was for a good cause! Something (bad) came up, I dealt with it, and now it’s behind me.

Through this tough past 16 days… I learned and started something great. I am attempting to change my lifestyle!

I started running a mile every day, doing 100 sit-ups, and 30 push-ups. Now, I feel great! I lost eight pounds and feel more energetic!

The best part is I am starting to add more to my workout routine! I am not satisfied with where I am right now… But, I love myself a little more each day!

I have a better-balanced diet (more πŸ₯¦ and 🍎, less 🍟 and 🍩) and fewer stress levels!

Waking up every day is now refreshing! If you want to experience this… Eat healthily and exercise daily!!! Start NOW!

Start making time for yourself βŒ›οΈ

There’s attempting to care and love yourself… And then there is actually caring and loving yourself.

Are you making time out of the day to think about life, care for your skin, pamper your hair, read a book, learn something new, or even just listen to music? If your answer is no then this needs to change IMMEDIATELY!

For peat’s sake, you are unique remember? So start treating yourself as so! This will boost your self-esteem. Caring for yourself has really helped me genuinely become happy with myself.

Don’t know where to start? Well, let’s reflect back on some things I’ve tried! Try this beauty lotion! This method not only transforms your skin into soft velvet but will also change the way you view your body! Thus, boosting self-esteem!

How about using face masks? Try these! The First step, Second, Third and Alternative!

Make sure you treat yourself! Take some time out of the day to just sit and get lost in music or a book. The possibilities are endless! It’s just up to you to decide. I am here cheering you on!

Change comes from within. To first start boosting your self-esteem, you must accept yourself as being a unique individual and WANT to change for the best πŸ’•

I believe in you. And so should you 😚
