Today marked an important moment. I gained some weight during covid 19. I gained up to 171. pounds. I had gained twenty one pounds. I new that had to stop and began to create some lasting weight loss goals. I also started my fitness journey. I am almost five foot eight and I wanted to get back down to 135 pounds. I got on the steps this morning and I weighed 134 pounds. I was so pleased and excited. I went to the gym this morning and decided to tell everyone. I told my friends at the gym. They are really sweet ladies there. I did it by making better choices. I stopped drinking soft drinks. We limited how often we eat out and sometimes bring part of it home for another meal. I feel so much better now! I also quit smoking last year and seem to be on a great journey to a healthy happy lifestyle. I love hiking, running, elliptical, and swimming. I have been walking around the block some and lift weights between calls at work. For anyone who thinks they can't quit smoking or lose weight. Rethink that. Picture yourself as a non-smoker. Picture yourself crossing the finish line at a race. Your brain will believe these things and so will you. Make the changes you would like to see in your community first in yourself. I am a firm believer that we choose who we are as well as our own destiny. At work always apply for jobs that scare you. Change is scary but so very worth it. The best things in life make us a little nervous or scared. Our very nature is to fear change and try to keep things safe the way they are. It goes back to hunter and gatherer times. Inspire change you want to see in your family and friends. Take a break from the news and read a book. Starting this blog was scary for me. I thought can I do this? Will this be a success? I believe it will as time goes on. The most important thing I have learned in life is to not quit. Quitters do not win in life. Stay the course and follow your internal compass. Be that person you want to. Chase your dreams. Make them a side gig if need be. I did that with this. It has been worthwhile though. Let me know what changes you are making in your life? I am always interested in feedback. Most of all just enjoy your life! I believe in you!
