As the holidays are in full swings... 🎄💕📸(Sorry in advance for the length and swipe left)
I have been reflecting back on past holiday family pictures, and dreaming of what I want to accomplish in the year ahead!
This year has been a year full of many FIRST.... Amazing and Not So Amazing things!!! But so grateful for every single one of them because I know God will and is using it all for the good! .
I started this health journey almost 3 years ago! Yes, I had tried to get healthy in years past...and Yes, I was successful! But it was all a temporary fix prior to 2016! I even walked into this health journey telling Lisa that I'd just do her program as a kickstart to go back to another program! Thankfully, it didn't take me long to realize that quick fixes are just that, and I wanted a Life Changer!
Then I started thinking I was too old to make changes and my genes just weren't going to let me sustain anything! I even had some naysayers tell me to keep my bigger clothes, so you'll have them when you gain it back! Let's just say...I chose to use that to drive me to succeed, instead of fill my head with confirmation that I can't do this! .
I've had more reasons just this Past Year to go back to all my old eating habits and give up on taking care of me and my health...but I chose me! You may have always seen a smile on my face, but I had some of my toughest life moments this year...but I chose Joy! And because I surrounded myself with family, friends, and a community of support throughout the trials....I chose to be a survivor and not a victim of life's challenges!
As I think of the year ahead, there are more things I want to work on for my health...but I had to start somewhere!!! You may feel like you can't move forward because of so many excuses, but I Promise You Can!!! We are all a work in progress! .
Are you going to choose to put your Health on the priority list this year? Are you going to choose Joy in the trials of life? Are you going to choose to be a survivor, instead of a victim? Remember it's Your Choice!!! 💕 I Know YOU Can!!!
