It isn’t so Easy but it’s Worth It

Life is a journey of many ups and downs, twist and turns and so many detours. I LOVE life even with all of the challenges that I am faced with. Life is such a precious gift, a gift that we all should be thankful for.

Instead of wallowing in self pity, self doubt and self loathing why don’t we all just smile and truly live and love?!!!

Sometimes I sit back and watch in amazement at how much beauty is all around me. I close my eyes with the sun hitting my face and take a deep breath and say “Thank you Lord for another day!” Each day is a blessing and I’m thankful that I’ve been given this life.

My life may not be all daisies and butterflies but it is my life and I’m going to live it wide open! Today and every day I am going to be THANKFUL!

As I sit here writing this blog post so much is going through my mind. Failing has never been an option in my life. I was always to do my best at everything and I have to admit a lot of things has come easy to me. I received nothing but love and encouragement growing up and support in all that I did.

22 weeks ago I set out on a journey with a health coach. A coach who has lived the battle of obesity and won. A coach who I immediately clicked with. I had some big goals I wanted to reach and succeed at. Goals that were very much attainable and not far fetched.

The first 16 weeks were great. I loved every bit of it. Even though I hit road blocks I pushed trough them. Even though my body stayed exhausted I still tried my best. Sadly at week 17 exhaustion had the best of me and I couldn’t figure out why I couldn’t sleep. I hadn’t slept well in many months and it was all catching up to me. Then sets in my hip killing me all the time, right where it hinges. At this point I kind of just threw my hands up and said I’m over it. Mind you I’m No Quitter but exhaustion was winning.

Finally something clicked in my brain. I had been using Thrive vitamins regularly since September 2015. Even though my joints felt great for the first time in years my restful sleep was suffering. I decided to go off of Thrive and after 6 days with Thrive out of my body I was finally sleeping!

Now that I’m rested my mind is so ready to finish my program and move on to the next step in my fitness journey. I may have taken a few steps back but my forward progress will rock. I’m NO QUITTER on myself and know my body well enough to know what I need.

I’m thankful I’m not where I was in 2010… and I am thankful I love myself enough to realize I Am Worth every ounce of self discipline and self love. I’ve got a lot of living left to do and so many more goals to hit and I will be successful. I’ve just been on a little detour but now I’m ready to be back on track. Remember detours happen but you don’t have to stay on that path. Nobody is perfect NOBODY! #Iamworthit #iamready #polarambassador #sdsambassador #t2tbff #iamabicchick #soxboxambassador #polara360
