Starting Fresh

Shout out to BHU Protein Bar for sending me these protein bars.

You wanna know something?
This healthy lifestyle is seriously a journey.
I know I’ve said that time and time again but with the wedding and move now over I’m trying to get back on the horse.
I’ve spent far too long staring at myself in the mirror pointing out all of my flaws and areas of frustration without actively trying to pursue health. For months before the wedding I was so stressed and pulled in so many directions I hadn’t been meal planning or cooking and workouts were so sporadic I lost all muscle definition and energy to even complete an intense workout.

Enough is enough, the time has come to get back on the ball and start back with healthy eating and working out consistently.
Eddie & I joined planet fitness (it made the most sense with 3 moves in one year to find a location close to our new homes) recently and I started off really strong but have been struggling the last week or so. With Eddie working A LOT we are trying to find nights where we can go together and encourage one another.

I’m trying my best to find meals and snacks that are clean/real food and not processed junk. My favorite go-to meals are any sort of roasted vegetables (with any meat!), eggs with brown rice, or crockpot anything. Some of my favorite snacks are freeze-dried fruit, home made trail mix, and organic protein bars, some fresh fruit with almond butter and cinnamon, and plantain chips!

I just posted a new youtube video yesterday to really give myself some accountability.
It was a super scary thing for me to actually put out there and it required me to be vulnerable and actually say “y’all I’m struggling and I’ve got to change.” Have you been there? When you’re just boiling over and you have to get it out there before you burst.
That’s me, that’s where I am right now.
I want to feel healthy and strong and capable and confident.
I want to really push myself, even when it hurts and even when i really don’t want to.

So thank y’all for always being this place of safety for me.
For allowing me to really pull back the smoke and mirrors and say “this sucks right now, but i’m going to change”.
I have always been a strong advocate for being raw and real with others – and I’m getting back to my roots on this, no more sugar coating.
Three cheers for Monday.
