A Healthier Me Update

Hi Guys! I don’t know if you recall my post from last month but I wanted to provide you with an update. So, I am still going strong with the fitness club I mentioned previously. Since I’ve started this club, I lost 6 lbs. After going on a 5-day cruise (and falling all the way off), I gained 3 lbs. back but am back on the plan and already lost 2 lbs. within 2 days. Lord, I thank you again for showing me where I’m supposed to be in order to get my temple back to where you want it to be! I can’t wait to go to the doctor soon so I can update on my A1C levels as well. Keep believing that you can do it! Once you SHOW UP, it will be done because God sees you’re putting in the work.

#Focused

Many of you know my weight loss journey with my up and down weight and inconsistencies. Transparent moment: The Lord has been working on me and revealed to me that I need to be more consistent in my posts and get past my own insecurities so that I may be able to help someone else. So, here goes. Recently, I was having lunch with some close friends of mine, one of whom shared with me their weight loss journey. I became excited, not only because I could see a difference in their weight loss, but also because they were super excited about the Fitness Club they joined that got them to their results. I mentioned to my friend for her to pass their information along to me so I could check it out; which she did. Here’s how God works. I saw an infomercial on Instagram for another workout program and was like “yeah, I’m going to do that one” and paid for it the next day. The day after that, I was tagged in a Facebook post for this Fitness Club. The creator of the Club was Live just talking about why they started this ministry and what it means to them and all the members. I felt her speaking to me during that broadcast so I went right ahead and signed up for that Club and discontinued the other. When I tell you that God puts people in your life and in your path to elevate you! I have not lost an incredible amount of weight but it is manageable for a lifestyle change as well as weight loss that I know can be maintained to continue to drop. Lord, thank you for the people that you put in our circle to make us better and give us a testimony to give you the glory! Thanks for listening guys!

img_4160-2It’s been a minute since I attended a women’s empowerment event. After being in the presence of some amazing women yesterday, I left with excitement. And woke up this morning ready to take my business and life to the next level.

The event was hosted by founder, Tori Torres of The Posh Girls Club.

#eCodeAtl was held at God Is Dope located in the heart of Downtown Atlanta from 12pm to 4pm. We enjoyed delicious bites from AppetizeAtl. The PGC socialites and diamonds flew in from Canada and Florida to name a few.

The speakers provided a wealth of information for us to utilize and apply to our business immediately.

Changes

I made a promise to myself that when June came I would start back taking my health seriously. I was doing well until May, when we had one event after the other and I gained most of the weight back. I know I want to lose 45-50 lbs. (pre-children weight). I believe I have been setting unrealistic and unreasonable goals for myself in order to achieve this. It’s my mindset that needs to change. It’s not a diet but a lifestyle change. Once I am consistent with the change I can burn off 1 lb a week; so, that by December I will be at my halfway point with 25 lbs lost. Since January I’ve lost 10 lbs, gained 6 lbs, and lost 1 lb. SMH! Here’s my challenge: no matter how busy I get I must make/take time out for myself. Whether it’s working out, GNO, or just going to the movies by myself I need to take better care of me. Consistency is key! I’m so proud to see so many of my friends on their weightloss journey and am excited to be consistent with mine. Words of encouragement are truly welcome! And any feedback as to what workout regimen works for you would be great as well, maybe it’ll be something I can incorporate!

May You Be Comforted

We recently experienced a loss in our family and the scripture below was read at the funeral and it comforted me. But, the other day I was thinking about something my father-in-law said. He stated that death is such a cruel thing to experience because you spend all this time getting to know someone, loving them, and having a routine with them only for them to die and you be left alone to deal with it. And, when you really think about it, that is such a true statement. We are left with this hole in our heart, our lives, our “routines” because this person is gone and the only solace we must hold onto is the fact that we will see them again in heaven. I believe that’s why the scripture below comforted me because even though this death was sudden, I know that I’ll see them again. I know they are no longer in pain and that is comforting. My prayer today is that anyone that has suffered a loss and still trying to cope that this scripture comforts you and gives you peace. In Jesus Name. Amen.

….. He will wipe every tear from their eyes. There will be no more death or mourning or crying or pain, for the old order of things has passed away. He who was seated on the throne said, “I am making everything new!” Then he said, “Write this down, for these words are trustworthy and true.” He said to me: “It is done. I am the Alpha and the Omega, the Beginning and the End. To him who is thirsty I will give to drink without cost from the spring of the water of life. He who overcomes will inherit all this, and I will be his God and he will be my son.

Revelations 21:4-7 NIV

Thank You!

Thank you Lord for your Grace and Mercy!

God’s grace gives you what you don’t deserve.
God’s mercy holds back what you do deserve.
You may have made a mistake but you are not a mistake!

Santa Claus

So, watching The Real today (one of my favorite day time talk shows) and they brought up a blog post where someone was venting about taking their child to see a white Santa Claus. This person felt like they were not being “Woke” because they were succumbing to the norm of taking their child to sit on a white Santa Claus’ lap. The question was “how do you feel about that and would it bother you?” Anyone that knows me knows I don’t discuss the whole Santa thing anyway but it did spark my interest to know how many people are bothered by a “white” Santa Claus and how many people would prefer to take their child to a Santa that represents their culture. So the question remains is Santa’s race a big deal for you as a parent?
