I’m back and thriving – mind, body, and spirit!
My blogging was on hold for a while. I planned to start in January, but wasn’t ready. I finished my teaching internship; which meant I could focus solely on my students and being the best 3rd year middle school teacher I could be.
That new year’s resolution of improving my health by exercising and eating better was soon thwarted by the stress of moving to a new residence. An excuse, of course. The bottom line is – I have a food addiction. It doesn’t take much to kick me off the wagon!
I start with the best of intentions and most often end up failing. It doesn’t matter how intelligent you are; how much money you have; nor where you live – addiction makes you vulnerable.
You become the master of making excuses and you learn how to manipulate everyone around you to get what you want. I love FOOD. I crave sugar more than anything.
A few days ago, I decided to hold myself accountable on every level – mind, body, and spirit. I have coached countless others for many years to overcome obstacles both personally and professionally – now, I must do it for myself.
Today, I AM THRIVING!
I am beginning a new lifestyle and I plan to share it with you daily. Every step of the way, I will be transparent. I refuse to hide behind the excess weight on my body. I know better; therefore, I must do better!
Today, I will begin The 8 Week Experience!
I will also exercise and eat as clean as possible. I always start out strong, but tend to fall off over time. My focus is simply 8 weeks for now.
Stay with me, pray for me, cheer me on or call me out if needed. I NEED a community behind me. I can do this!
