Your health, whether physical or mental, comes first.

Our psychological state allows us to see only what we want/need/feel to see at a particular time. What are the first three words that you see?

Success, time, and money. That’s actually spot-on, 100%.

Health, intelligence, power.

Love, experience, and friends

intelligence, happiness, love

I joined the gym today! Woo. I didn’t work out while I was there because I’m still sick and my head is very congested, but I’m most likely going to go tomorrow after work. I’m excited that I joined, now I just need to keep myself motivated to go. I know that after a couple of week doing it, I will keep it up. I just need to focus and push myself until it becomes habit. My goal for the first 2-3 weeks is to go work out 3 times a week, and after that becomes easier and more of a habit, I’ll up it to 4 days. 5 days is ultimately my goal, but I know I won’t go that much at first, so I’m starting small. I will most likely be joining in on the Happy Healthy Holidays challenge so I am hoping that will help keep me on track and motivated, as well.

I’ve been a bit shitty with my money this week. Nothing too crazy, just a lot of buying food on Saturday since I was out all day, and I went grocery shopping. Yes, of course I need food in my house, but I went a bit overboard and could have waited on some things. Less to buy the next time I go shopping, I suppose. I just really need to get better about saving my money, especially now that I’ll be paying for the gym, paying off my credit card and trying to save money all at once. Ugh, I need some major overtime. I need to start budgeting better and things will be okay, I just hate having to worry about money.

First picture was taken in July 2014 and the second one was October 2014!

I have gained not only weight between these two pictures but I’ve gained so much more than that! I’ve gained life, a new found love for weightlifting, I’ve gained happiness, strength, health and most importantly I’ve gained love for myself!

I’m so proud of myself and even though I still have my bad days I know that I’m on the right path! Change your mind, change the way you think and I promise it will change you! 💕
