So far on my journey since the second week in January, I've lost about 15 pounds, which is probably more now (lol). This journey I'm on was not just to lose weight but to change the way I eat one step at a time, to have clearer skin, and to just be happy in my own body.
Having a strong health journey is a sign that you want to give your body the love it deserves. It can be discouraging when you’re eating right and exercising well but have yet to reach your fitness goals. Although there are various reasons why we can start a health journey without seeing
The top reason being people fail to accept the change mentally before they do the work, so although you may have signed up for a 1 year contract at Goodlife, you need to be ready to get up at least 3x a week and actually workout. I’m not writing this to remind you about what you haven’t done, but I do want to
I’d step on the scale every other morning and find a pound was added to my overall weight. For a while, I thought my scale must have been broken. Then, I ended up going to see a doctor for a routine check-up. They weighed me and I realized what I feared was true. Clearly, it was time to cut out everything “bad” I was
I decided to make a change and I started off by doing a 30-day challenge where I followed a specific nutrition plan. After 30 days, I noticed a drastic change – not just in my physical results, but in my overall health and wellness. My energy level enhanced, but most importantly
Yes, you are working on your walk with God, your relationship with your partner, and your development of proper eating habits. All of those things work together as you are learning as much as you can in life to become a better person.
I’ve recently started going to later in the evening for yoga and additional cardio; so, I’ve been trying to, put a little more thought into my workout clothing to feel more confident and put together. This new need, inspired me to search for black-owned workout clothing that’s affordable, empowering and (of course) super flattering.
I’ve always been athletic, running track and playing soccer my whole life. The issue I’ve always ran into is being consistent when it came to working out/ practice. It was just something I disliked doing. I loved winning but it was not enough to get me to go to practice/ workout each day. However, this has now changed years later.
Christians sometimes have a tendency to magnify the spiritual and minimize the natural. However, our mental and physical health is just as important to God as our spiritual well being. Each of us has been given a gift. Our entire being - body, soul, and spirit - comes from God and should be effectively stewarded. If we place more attention on one aspect of our being and neglect the others, it throws us off and prevents us from experiencing true wholeness.
We often think of exercise as a means to get in better physical shape, lose/gain weight or stress management. It had never dawned on me how much exercise was pouring into and enriching my life through the enhancement of my sense of self and improving my confidence. I was starting to experience the cliche things they say about exercise as far as endorphin release and less stress, but I really started to notice subtle improvements in my personal life. Little did I know that within this new fitness journey, I was starting to develop a healthy pattern of self-care.
When I decided to do this whole “lifestyle change” thing, it was completely for the wrong reasons. I was trying to incorporate better habits, meditate, workout, make myself pray to God, and change some of my bad habits into better ones because I saw somebody else doing it. It was, honestly, putting me into a depressed state of mind. It wasn't until
