As a powerful woman said “Your faith must be greater than your fear” Jenifer Sincero. I have been thinking a lot about the goals that I wanted to accomplish in 2019 and the ones that I have actually accomplished. What did you set out to accomplish in January, February, March, etc? Did you have one or more goals this year that you accomplished with an accountability partner? Did you set out to accomplish a goal and you did not finish? You are not alone, I continue to work towards a healthier lifestyle and I look back sometimes and see how much I have accomplished.
If you lost your accountability partner and now it has been harder to accomplish what you set out to do, you should be so proud and thankful for all that you have accomplished. “The Universe loves a grateful person. The more you thank LIFE, the more that LIFE will give you to be thankful for” Louise hay.

Did you wake up with determination and ready to Shine? Do you have a New Years Resolution or an everyday resolution to be better? Do you continue to work on your Goals and Dreams? Did you know that 80% of people that set a New Years Resolution quit after the first week? I know a great community of people that are the 3% of the population that doesn’t quit and keeps on motivating everyone daily including myself.
I wake up with every morning and remind myself that my only competition is myself. Daily motivation is much needed and required to continue with any Goal that I set out to do. I Don’t worry about having a “hump” on the journey or my road to success because this only makes me stronger and wiser. I get up, dust myself off and continue. I have learned lessons from all the remarkable people that I have met in this great community.
What are your health Goals? How important are your Goals to you? Are you living your best life? Ask yourself these questions and whenever you are ready I am happy to have you join the community in your Health Journey.
Have a fabulous day.
So I got real with myself and reminded myself where I have been. Being overweight and unhealthy all since I was 12 years old, and being raised by a single parent who had to be aware of the prices because she was feeding 4 young ladies. Recently I have reminded myself that if it took this long to get this unhealthy the least I could do was to give myself at least half the time to get back to my healthier self before my 12th birthday.
I have been reading a few books from amazing authors such as Jen Sincero You are a Badass. I have learned quite a few things from these books and I keep learning daily. If you are anything like me where you are second guessing yourself and you think that you will never do (enter your item), then I would definitely suggest to read or listen to positive and self helping books.
While I have been consistent with my nutrition part of my health journey, I have been struck by life with a few things while being on this journey. On October 2017 I fell at work and I broke several parts of my body which was another hurdle with being able to stay consistent with my workouts. So i understand when you tell me you are hurt or you are not able to do this or that. I prefer to tell myself “What am I able to do right now?” this way I can continue to move and little by little my body has gotten stronger and I have been able to succeed and get back on track. One of the hardest things that I have been told from one or more of my doctors is “At your age, getting back to doing the things you used to do before the fall is going to be close to impossible”.
I am very grateful for all the support, the community, the love, the help and suggestions from all the friends, family, physical therapists and coaches that I am around. With this information I have been able to start to do more of the simple things that I used to do before the fall such as wearing heels, hiking, dancing. I am only getting better daily and look forward to being better with every day that passes. Please share this story with someone you know because you never know what someone can take from different life stories. Thank you for reading and supporting.
It has been a while since I shared on here with all of you, my apologies guys. My new goal is to write more to share more and to do more. For the past 6 months I have been struggling with life. I am not one to complain because in my mind this does nothing. I would rather grow through the struggle and listen to other people who have been through something like what I am going through. I say all this to say that I have been struggling with a few things work, family and self discipline.
First I will share that I have worked for an HMO for the past 21 years and six months ago I almost lost my career due to changes in the company. I was going to be one more statistic of someone who works their entire life for a company and then they see themselves in the unemployment line. I am fortunate to say that as of January I have been working in a new department in a more fulfilling role.
In addition to all the pressure, tension and constant worry from trying to find another job I let go of a few things in my life that make me who I am. I stopped responding to friends, going out with family and lastly being healthy with my eating and fitness. I even stopped doing what I love the most Make-Up. Over the last few months I have been able to get back on track and now I can see more of myself. I have made steps toward being healthier and happier. Everyday I strive to be better and I look forward to sharing more with all of you. If you know anyone who can be motivated or can gain from my story please share.
For those of you that have asked… I am 45 years young, and 3 years ago I started on this health journey not because I saw myself in a picture or someone told me I had to be healthy. I started because as a make-up artist I was asked to go on set at different locations and some of them required me to go up and down stairs, hills and during this time I was out of breath and I did not feel good.
When I started my journey I will have to admit is was hard to do although I had been through many, many, many diets and fads. This program was hard but not as hard as feeling down on myself when trying to keep up with everyone on set. I kept telling myself “how do you want to feel when you go on set?” and this kept me going daily. For the other days that I needed some inspiration and motivation I went ahead and looked into YouTube for inspiration and motivation.
I started sharing my journey through Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter and a few people have supported me through this journey and others have been motivated to get halthy themselves. I upgraded my mindset to open my scope of view and allowed myself to enjoy this journey that I am on. Other people’s stories and motivation keeps me going and shows me that I am not alone and that we are in this together. “US” together will make sure that we succeed.
♥ Please share any stories of your journey or any transformations. I look forward to reading all of them.♥
This being the Month of Love let’s continue to LOVE yourself fist so that you can love and pour all the love onto everyone else. I heard this phrase yesterday in different contexts and decided that I will be pouring more LOVE onto everyone I come across.
I started with transforming my body on April 24th, 2014 and it has been a great journey, with this body transformation I have also transformed my mind and soul. A lot of people have asked why I wanted to loose weight since everyone feels that I was ok being the weight that I was. I chose to loose the weight not because I was sick or health problems I chose to loose the weight because I wanted to feel better about me.
For those of you that have tried diets and lost the weight and then gained back more than you lost or those of you that have lost and then just plateaued I understand you. If you could name any diet I have most likely tried it, done it and failed at it. I have chosen Herbalife Nutrition because it works for me and it’s all nutrition, which makes a difference on how you take it. Just as a potato if you fry it and make French fries will be worst than f you bake the potato and eat it with healthy toppings.
I want to continue to better myself and help others in their journey, please tag a friend, a relative or co-worker that you know needs to read this because I want to help.
