The Nerd Notes: About those New Year’s Resolutions….

With 2017 winding, now is the perfect time to prepare for having a healthy and successful 2018. Whether your goals are weightloss, fitness or spiritually grounded, now more than ever is the most important time to lay the foundation down for lifestyle changes that will help you become the most balanced and BEST possible version of yourself.

88% of people fail at their New Year’s resolutions, not because they don’t want to succeed but because the very act of setting resolutions can lead us to fail. The pressure and rigidness of a New Year’s Resolution can be suffocating, overwhelming and make the goal one has set seem impossible. Don’t worry there is a solution, you are not alone and I am here to help you. When I started earlier this year, my own health and weight goals were overwhelming, to say the least. I had lost about 45lbs in 2016, I was slim, cute and sick AF. I put so much pressure on myself and my eating habits were one experiment after another, that I ended up with kidney stones! Trust me y’all Kidney stones are painful and they are NO Joke!

Then in March my mental health went to shit. I spent 75% of 2017 on medical leave due to an emotional and mental breakdown. I gained 55lbs (everything I had lost plus a bonus 10lbs). It is bad enough that I did not recognize the woman in the mirror mentally and emotionally, but to have all my hard work in the gym and kitchen erased…bruh!

So I took a step back, did my homework and cut myself some slack, and now I will be starting over in the New Year and I am inviting you all to join me on a journey to a happier, healthier, more intentional, more focused and most important more balanced version of ourselves.

Enjoy the Holidays with your Friends and Family, on January 1st I will be launching a whole bunch of small monthly challenges that will help you make measured and easy steps to getting your health where you want it to be, and I won’t keep any secrets from you. The good, the bad and the ugly- honey chile, I am going to keep it 100 with you!

Sign up for my newsletter launching in 2018 (The Nerd Notes), pick up some meditation or self-love guidance, find recipes that taste amazing and help you feel amazing, learn how to manage your finances as well as invest, and so much more. Did I mention that I will be sharing travel hacks in the newsletter as well?!?!

Trust me, all of the feel good magic is going to be right here;).

Enjoy and Namaste.

  • We get hype about the start, planning how we will celebrate the finish, the big win.

We look back with wisdom and humility once the journey is complete.

But this middle part;
This journey that requires perseverance, consistency, fortitude long after the excitement and motivation of the start has faded...
This leg where life, fatigue, self doubt and more cause us to stumble and consider just quitting...
This part where the cheerleaders may not always be as loud, as present and as positive as we hope or need... THIS is where champions are truly born, this is where our greatness is forged.

Earn the the glory.
Reap the rewards.
Stay the course.

  • How you feel is transient. Don't believe me? At this moment do you feel the way you felt at 8.30am this morning? Didn't think so.

However principles like:
Discipline
Integrity
Loyalty
Compassion
Respect
Etc

These principles influence every decision, every mission, every goal...even when you don't FEEL like doing the right thing, finishing that workout, completing that project...your principles will not permit for mediocrity or tapping out.

So...live by principles. .
