My journey to achieve a healthy life

Welcome to my Blog!  I’m happy you decided to take a few minutes out of your busy life to read about my journey.  Hopefully by reading this you will find your own inner drive to be the ultimate you.  My goal is to share with you things that inspire and motivate  me while in turn, it reflects on to you to be able to provide the inspiration you need to accomplish your goals.  I will try to provide relevant information about what I do to live a healthy life from my food journal, recipes, workouts, travel, skincare and overall beauty tips.  My passion in life is to help others find what inspires them and to help you reach your goals.  To truly love yourself and radiate love, confidence and a passion for a healthy life it starts on the inside. 

I’ve really come to the realization that in order to make a difference in your life, or anybody else’s life, you have to be proactive.  Being proactive is a choice you make, every single day.  Things won’t change unless you make it happen.  This requires an extreme amount of self motivation and/or encouragement from friends and family.  The reason I mention this is because a lot of people complain about their current circumstances, but really have no drive to change direction.  Its like they want it to be magically “fixed”! 

 What is your motivation?  What drives you to be successful?  What motivates you to be the best you can be?  For me, it’s a lot of things!  For me it’s a combination of extreme self coaching, support from friends and family, a positive attitude and a drive to accomplish a goal.  Some days are definitely harder than others, and you will have days you fail.  Its ok to fail.  You pick yourself up, brush yourself off and keep going. 

People are always telling me they can’t workout like I do or eat like I do and I tell them that I’ve not always been this way.  I too had my days of eating Oreos, pizza, drinking soda and putting unlimited amount of bad, proccessed foods in my body.  Its a decision to make a change, followed by daily action steps towards your goal.  Some days you will take a step back, but you keep moving forward and eventually your steps forward will overtake your steps backwards and you will begin moving the the right direction. 

So, think about what you want to accomplish, what steps you need to take to get there and start by taking the first step TODAY.  Not next month, not next week, not tomorrow, but TODAY!

  1. Lovely post!
    Its inspiring to find people that are also working to achieve a healthier lifestyle. My friends and I are starting a healthy habits challenge on the 7th of April in order to promote healthy habits and an overall healthier lifestyle. The three of us are going to challenge ourselves by working out for 100 days straight and are inviting others to join us. If you’re not interested in working out for 100 days straight, that is all right. We’re just asking everyone to pick one healthy habit and to follow through with it for 100 days straight. We also compiled a list of 100 healthy habits in case you need any ideas. Just wanted to extend the invitation to you!

    Hope to hear from you soon!
