Let’s get physical…

I had a long post about my particular epiphanies on weight loss, exercise and feeling good but I deleted it and will type out the short version.

Do what you have to do to make yourself feel better. Try everything, over and over and over again until something sticks. I’m not talking about starving yourself so you can fit the televisions image of what you should be. I’m talking about walking out of your house and feeling good in your skin. Feel healthy and happy, you are so worth it. Here are my ending tips:

  • Sweat makes your pores open and get clean you’ll be amazed how soft your skin will get!
  • Don’t eat fat.
  • You don’t have to feel full and bloated, stop before that point
  • Don’t care if people see you exercising, chances are, they don’t care either.
  • Stop looking for short-cuts, life rarely works that way; you get what you work for. (That ones good for everything, work, family, money)
  • Stop thinking that it was somehow easier for other people who are successful at what they tried. It isn’t. It’s EXACTLY as hard for them. (also a good one for everything, work, family, money.)


Last night my husband said “thank you for not dying” and I said “I’ll try to keep doing that for as long as possible”. I do not know where the finish line is anymore.I am not going to waste any days eating food that makes me sick or being so out of shape that I can’t enjoy a vacation.

  1. Great post- I’m so glad you are focused on health and eating right. I’ve seen women who get sick but refuse to eat well and they only get sicker in the end. I believe nutrition is the starting point for good health. Exercise is a no brainer as well!And you’re right- you have to find what works for YOU! After years of working out I am back to a program that got me in amazing shape in my 20s and now at almost 36, it’s working again! I love when that happens!I wish you an amazing, beautiful day filled with love and compassion.~Karma

  2. Great advice! 

  3. @karmalife – Thank you K.L. You have to stay strong.

  4. @X_naomi_X – I would give you a red heart back if I knew how.  How about we stick with a cone butt and hope it magically turns into a heart? ❤

  5. haha.. i can tell you how It is: { v } but without the spaces in between.  Have a great weekend!

  6. Someone recently shared with me that being hungry is not an emergency. Ha ha – I think has been my problem because my whole life, I have been responding to hunger as if it is an emergency. I second what your hubby said.

  7. Excellent advice and something I should start doing.  Let me attempt the red heart for you.
