Dear Diary,

There is just something about sunrises and sunsets 🙂

Standing at the window tea in hand listening to some beautiful meditation music and just REALLY taking it all in….sunrises are just magical at times…. being there in that moment, breathing in the pure innocence of the start to a new day had me really examining my life changes with JOY in my heart and pondering a little on what my coach/ friend had mentioned to me last night.

I know …why are you thinking while meditating???

This one incident Diary I feel like was needed to explore a deeper issue for me. See for every Core De Force Challenge I have had the same cold symptoms at the same time on each round… every time on the 2nd week I suffer from what feels like major sinus issues but I feel fine otherwise and my mucous hasnt turned green so I have been stumped 😦 

Since I was so stumped I brought it up with my coach and good friend about this crazy cycle I am experiencing and always in the peak of everything going my way. She mentioned a video called Upper Limit. I admit I checked it out with mixed feelings at first. I felt like there was no way I was self sabotaging my workouts. I was showing up, getting those workouts in, feeling good, and really digging in to get results…or so I thought.

Short version of what Upper Limit is…… YOUR subconscious plays havoc with your body 😦 Meaning deep down I knew I felt like the weight loss shouldnt be this easy for me. I dont know what I expected but once the results started kicking in I felt my body involuntary move 2 steps back 😦

Today I surrounded myself with two things a beloved shirt that says Love is Enough and a cherished bracelet that states I Matter…. I kept these statements in my head all day allowing my happiness of where my body changes are to really become STRONGER than before and you know what Diary… it worked!!!!!  I felt a lot better today with less nose drainage than the day before. Purely amazes me how strong our minds REALLY are at times 🙂 

……and tonight I worked out for ME… I needed to take a break from sharing that important time with others and focus on it being ok for me to hit my goals…. I am gonna hit my goals and taking on this Upper Limit problem is just the starting point for me 😉

Dear Diary,

Today was a good day 🙂 

I cant say I left the doughnuts alone but I did manage some bananas in today. 

My morning schedule is going pretty AWESOMELY which surprises me because I never thought of myself as a morning person but then again I never DREAMED that I would make schedules and lists for my day either…which so happens that I love both…there really is something magical to a WELL PLANNED day 🙂 

With this schedule change I have noticed that I just feel better when starting my day…. I am now pretty happy and look forward to the start of an INCREDIBLE work day. Man why did I wait so long to start falling in love with a more healthier, productive lifestyle??? I am truly the MOST happiest I have ever been in my life…. WOW!!!!!! 

Treating exercise as a priority of my day really has shifted my mindset to where now I REALLY enjoy & LOOK forward to my workouts 🙂 

It had to happen Diary…. I swallowed the healthier living kool aid
