💜 Day 3: Wednesday 14/11 💜
.
Hmm is all I can say 🤔
.
.
I was on a mission yesterday with my water intake as I had a day off from work but I only got in 1.8 L of water from my agreed amount of 2.2 L 😮
.
My eating habits were a bit here and there yesterday, this is what I managed to consume:
➡️ 60g Haloumi ✅
➡️ Chicken & Pearl Pasta ✅
➡️ Youfoodz Protein Drink ✅
.
And everything that I didn’t eat:
➡️ Protein Jelly ❌
➡️ Broccolini & Edamame ❌
.
.
Just didn’t feel hungry enough and I am trying not to force myself to eat
.
Hoping today (day 4) will be a more successful day 🤞

💕 Self-care 💕
Learning🌟Growing🌟Loving my journey🌟

I’m realizing more the importance of taking care of my mind & body. 👍 It’s been almost 1 month ✅ since I started making better food choices & being more disciplined with my running and even started trying to wake up earlier to jumpstart my mornings. ☀️ I’ve lost 6 lbs, noticed myself having more energy and overall feeling great. 🙌
As of recent, I caught myself several times feeling guilty 🙇🏻‍♀️ for eating something that wasn’t on “my plan” or missing a day of running when I set a goal to run #5KADAY this month, like I had ruined my good streak. 😔

I also wasn’t stretching before or after my runs so I started feeling discomfort on my left side 😕, but still continued to complete my 5K 🏃🏻‍♀️ because I was committed and accountable and because I told myself I couldn’t miss a day. 🤦🏻‍♀️ I’m growing in my mindset 😆 and working on finding that balance towards going after my goals 💪 and knowing when to ease up and rest.
I’m learning to listen to my body & mind, and not be too hard on myself if I miss one day of 🏃🏻‍♀️ or if I decide to eat that one 🌮 or one slice of 🍕. 🌟 It’s about balance, being disciplined but at the same time enjoying the process! ✨

I haven’t been to the gym to intentionally lift in a little over 3 weeks, which is really rare for me.
It’s a privilege that I even have the time and freedom to put this in my day and I’m aware of that and take it into consideration.
I returned today a bit sheepish and unsure of how I’d be received because consistency is something I value and do my best to practice in multiple areas personally and professionally. Yet here I was not living it.
Upon entering the gym today I was welcomed and hugged.
Read that as understood and nurtured in two ways which may sound like a small thing but in service based professions meant to improve people’s well-being, the mental and spiritual are often overlooked as part of a persons “training” so to speak.
As I shared why I hadn’t been in the gym ( blog post coming on it later) , my trainer looked at me and said, “this is the place you come when you need to feel better in all the ways, not just when you feel good. “
I told him I felt like I should know how to figure out what was causing me turmoil on my own and when I couldn’t/didn’t, anxiety and doubt gripped me and that had never happened so severely before so it sucked and drained any energy I had, while also paralyzing me in some ways.
He said “ you lost your compass, that’s ok. You can get it back. “
Simple truth.
While my self awareness is the highest it’s ever been, I also lose my compass, direction and need help, support and a new perspective to get it pointed in a direction that’s true now.
Sifting and reclaiming your compass are part of the show people.
I moved through the rest of my workout feeling really understood and supported and relived I could be honest and have that honesty met with empathy and compassionate guidance on where to go from here.
May hope is that everyone has a space, coach, trainer who allows you to “lose your compass” and support you in seeing that’s ok.
Your not expected to be on it, hardcore, at your best or even have it all figured out all the damn time.
Those moments you don’t are opportunities to let yourself be supported, nurtured and held by someone else.
NOW I KNOW. :) I hope you do too.

From CNA to RN, one accomplishment at a time. I'm proud of who you are and who you are becoming. Mama loves you.

This morning I was reading through FB group comments, and I saw the same sentiment repeated about a dozen times. How do I grow my biz without the support and belief of my family and friends? That is a powerful question that has a simple answer...it all resides in how much you love yourself and how much you believe in yourself. When I switched my coaching focus from business to self-love everyone "poo-pooed" my idea, but comments like that confirm that there is a need for people to have an amazing love for themselves and their dreams. When we love ourselves and believe in what we can do, we become unstoppable. Our brains kick in and help us make those beliefs a reality. 2018 has been a year of self-discovery and growth and it all started with really falling in love with myself! What's holding you back from starting the greatest love affair of your life? #selflove #success #entrepreneur #support #empowered #women #business #lifeyourbestlife #selftalk #mindset #growth #coach #Denver #personaldevelopment #shift #yougotthis

I’m generally not a floral scent loving girl, but I’m officially adding Magnolia touch to my list of favorite happy oils. I say happy because every time I smell them, they make me smile. In case you’re curious the other ones on my list are Balance, Bergamot, Citrus Bliss and Elevation ☺️ The magnolia touch is more of a fruitier floral scent than the normal floral ones, which might be why I like it and think it’s delightful and want to just roll it all over my face and neck 😳😂💕 Oh plus it’s already diluted for you so you don’t even have to think about it… it’s ready to go!
Here are some great ways to use it:
🌿When anxious feelings arise throughout the day, apply Magnolia Touch to wrists or pulse points. Like Lavender and Bergamot, Magnolia has a calming and relaxing aroma that soothes anxious feelings -
🌸Promote feelings of relaxation while you’re getting ready for bed by rolling the oil into your palms and inhaling the scent by cupping your hands over your nose. You can use Magnolia oil alone or layer it with Lavender, Bergamot, Serenity or other relaxing oils -
🌿When your skin is in need of comfort, roll on Magnolia Touch. It offers cleansing and moisturizing benefits to the skin. It can soothe irritation or dryness, or refresh the skin. Add to your daily skin care routine to help keep skin clean and hydrated -
🌸Use it as your signature personal fragrance by applying topically to pulse points (at wrists, throat, behind the ears, and inside your elbows). Use by itself or combine with Bergamot or Ylang Ylang -
🌿To create feelings of calm and relaxation, roll onto the bottoms of your feet -

Inner peace does not have to equate to consistent displays of stereotypical outer peace. Literal meanings are old hat. Read between the lines. The desire to control, has many a guise, and sometimes the very people who claim to want to help you, are the ones who are in fact, doing the opposite. Despite what some 'spiritual' gurus will tell you - there are some situations in life, that require the breaking of old walls - through the fearless establishment of new boundaries. The kind of boundaries that scare people who like to sit in ivory towers - dictating and sucking people's energy centres dry - like leeches with a smile. •

Darkness exists for a reason, and will always continue to do so. Negative energy (just like positive), IS the divine energy you all try to seek. Negative energy makes up half of your being as a whole, so avoiding it only means avoiding yourself, and at least half of what exists within the universe / your mind. Negative energy is destructive - but it isn't a bad thing like some people would have you believe. Negative energy smashes through the walls that cage you, and kicks outdated and oppressive paradigms out of the way. Making way for REAL growth. Not the fake, highlight reel kind that gets shoved in to people faces, by those who know very little about themselves, or how the world works. •

So, rather than shining your light on already well lit places - why not shine it on the things you've been avoiding? Breathe deeply, and open the cupboard. Yeah, so a couple of 'demons' might fall out, but it's not like they weren't already lurking. I don't know about you, but being stalked for life by a shadow I can't see, doesn't sound particularly appealing. Rather than having fear dictate the rest of my life, I'd rather face the discomfort of a spring clean.

🔅 Day 2: Tuesday 13/11 🔅
.
Another successful day of eating and drinking water! 💦
.
Ate all my agreed macros as scheduled during the time window of 10:30-6:30 pm...
.
Trying out intermittent fasting so I am only eating during this time window. So far it has been going well and has given me back control of my liquids as previously I struggled to get in more than 1.5 L of water via cups of tea! .

NOTHING WORKS WITHOUT THE HOLY SPIRIT.
_
Believest thou not that I am in the Father, and the Father in me? the words that I speak unto you I speak not of myself: but the Father that dwelleth in me, he doeth the works (John 14:10).
_
The Holy Spirit is the active agent of the Godhead; He’s the power of God; He carries out the acts of God. Man was created and formed by the Holy Spirit; everything God does outside of His throne is through the Holy Spirit. It’s important to understand that nothing works without the Holy Spirit; there’s no life without Him.
_
If you were tasked with an evangelical assignment in your local church, for example, until and unless, you execute it by the power of the Spirit; except He’s the one working in, and through you, it’ll be a fruitless expedition. The Bible says, “For it is God which worketh in you both to will and to do of his good pleasure” (Philippians 2:13); that’s referring to the Holy Spirit. No one can do God’s work without Him. The Bible says, “…Not by might, nor by power, but by my spirit, saith the LORD of hosts” (Zechariah 4:6).
_
Not even the Lord Jesus could do without the Holy Spirit. All the great works He did were done through the power of the Holy Spirit. We read what He said in our opening verse: “…the Father that dwelleth in me, he doeth the works.” If Jesus needed the Holy Spirit, it then means you can do nothing without Him.
_
No wonder God wants us to be filled with the Spirit always (Ephesians 5:18). The Holy Spirit is God at work in us, building His Church through us. Recognise Him as your helper, and you’ll function always with His ability and strength; He’ll make you a success in life and in all that you do.

Take a moment to be in the moment - but whyyyy?!?! Because you get to feel you! The Essence of Your World- the reason for everything happening in your world. The most affirming experience is to become proof of your own existence in full feeling- sensory mentally emotionally - we live in our head so much ... and can feel swept away by the busyness of life... to BE in any moment, is to feel yourself so fully , pressing against the world. You become it’s equal... because how can it exist without you... I am here. Wow. Own it. Love and peace, Sang Ji 🌍
