⚠️ Warning long post ⚠️. I've been so down on myself lately. Can't seem to find 100% of my motivation. But then I look back and realize why I started this journey. This journey wasn't about weight loss. It was about becoming MYSELF. I was working 60 hours of misery and zero time on myself. I woke up one day and literally had enough. I drove myself up to the college, told my job I'm cutting all my hours back, then signed up at the gym. I came home from all of that and threw out all my junk food. I then became so strict and never missed one day in the gym for 4 months straight. I then realized what I truly wanted to major in. I was double majoring in biology and chemistry with no idea as to why. But after I started to find out more about myself I realized dietetics is what I wanted to study. I found my calling and never felt better about anything in my life. I am now a nutritionist for an amazing team, studying what I love, and focusing on my own health and well being. So I'm writing this to remind myself and everyone out there that we all have ups and downs. But we have to be strong enough to never give up and never forget as to why we started any journey we have. I am now standing up tall and not hiding the body I have. I want to embrace all forms of my body. My chubby, thick, strong self. I will never stop nor give up on becoming the healthiest and happiest me. #transformation#throwback#journey#weightloss#fatloss#weightlifting#nutritionist#dietitian#bestrictnotrestricted#cleaneating#behappy#life#journeyhasjustbegun#positivity#bodypositive

During my grounding meditation, prior to pulling my 'Card of the Day', I asked my guides for any images they thought would be important for me to see. I saw a cross. Pulling the 6 of Swords and seeing that cross gave me the validation that my guides are present and are here to help me wherever the journey leads. #meditation#tarot#tarotcommunity#journey#selfgrowth#spiritguides
I still have a lot to learn about this world and myself 🌍 I'm far from having everything figured out. What I do like to believe is that every year, it gets a little bit better; I become a bit more patient, I become a bit more self-aware. At least that's what I aspire to do. Sometimes I wish it could be a faster process, but I think you need to allow it to take time and not rush ⌛️Instead of hoping to wake up in a perfect world, you have to enter a state of enjoying the journey 🛤 For there is no magical finish-line waiting in the future, only one inevitable truth; death. Don't let that overwhelm you with worry; let it humble you. Let it remind you that your life is now. Right in this moment. And although you may not be able to control every outcome; you always control how you will respond. You decide in what things and in which people you will invest your energy. You choose what's important to you and what makes you happy ✔️ If someone don't agree with you, let them. You don't need their permission. Things get a whole lot easier when you begin to trust in yourself, rather than relying on other people's validation ✌🏻
I hit shoulders and legs this morning... But there's something I need to chat about. There's something that I've been struggling with lately. So here we go... since I've been in remission, I am struggling with remembering or knowing what day of the week it is. I'm not currently on any meds or have taken any that would cause memory loss... it's just that I'm so caught up in living in the moment I rarely stop to check what day of the week it is. I'm just living. And when I'm getting ready to make a post on here I have to think long and hard about what day it is. Usually I have to check the calendar on my phone or my watch. Several times... Lol. And I still screw it up from time to time. It's been driving me crazy.... but maybe it means I'm getting it right. That it doesn't matter what day of the week it is. I woke up to a new day so I'm going to take full advantage! These are the little things I'm talking about when I tell you I'm thankful to be alive. No matter what day of the week it is, I'm grateful to see a new day. Don't wish away your days. Wake up with the same excitement on a Monday as you do on a Saturday. Take each day and live it fully. ❤️
