So I know that I made a post recently about how I want to start working out more and also trying to eat healthy. Well I started doing that slowly but surely.
So far what I’ve been making sure to do is to drink a lot of water. I have a 32oz hydro flask so I’ve been making sure that I drink that entirely at least once a day if not more. As far as food is concerned I’ve been trying my best to lower if not cut out completely sugar. I have a huge sweet tooth so this has been difficult for me but I’m trying.
When it comes to working out so far I’ve been working out 5 days a week for 15-30 mins a day. I work out in the mornings when I get up and once again in the evening once I get home from work. I actually found a workout on Pinterest which is what I’ve been following. I’ll have the picture below!
This is the workout that I mostly do in the evenings and then in the mornings I try to do squats, crunches, jumping jacks, or just some stretching. It really depends on how I’m feeling.
Overall that’s what I’ve really been doing and it’s been working well. This has also really been helping me with anxiety since it gets my extra energy out.
Also I will be sure to keep you guys updated on my progress as well as other things that come to my mind. Plus feel free to comment down below anything that you would like me to discuss.
As I’m writing this I am so so tired. The night before I slept horrible due to having a panic attack. If any of y’all have had a panic attack before they are horrible and even after it’s over (at least for me) I can feel the effects for hours after. Mostly it’s just the fear of having another one. But I’m blessed that I got through it.
One thing though that I’m trying to focus on is trying to get healthier. I want to start working out more, drinking more water, and also eating healthier. I can drink more water and working out I can work on. But the eating healthier part is what’s hard for me. I love sweets a lot and I love cheese. So I’m trying to figure out the best way to go about these things.
For starters I plan to start working out in the mornings before work for maybe like 10-15 mins and also eating a healthier breakfast. I don’t really like oatmeal but I’m going to try and start eating it. My biggest problem is lunch and dinner. Typically I don’t eat lunch and when it comes to dinner my family orders out a lot.
So I want to know for those of you who have gone through this or currently are do y’all have any advice. Also do y’all have any healthy recipes that you could recommend. Preferably for lunch or dinner. I mean I can eat salads but that may get old really fast. So comment those down below and to be honest I’m terrible in the kitchen so easy recipes would be awesome.
But y’all have a great day and please remember that you are you for a reason!

So I’m sitting here at work and ever since yesterday I’ve had some crazy anxiety. Anxiety sucks and a lot of times I have no idea what causes it. But I do know that sometimes when it happens I get dizzy and it really sucks because it just makes my anxiety worse.
Now I feel like I’m going to cry and honestly I mostly just wish I was at home. I know some people might ask why I choose to share this but that’s because I hope that I can help someone. I hope that someone reads this and realizes that they are normal even though they may get anxious at times.
Sometimes I wonder why anxiety even exists and why it affects some people more than others? Also if any of you have anxiety or have anxious moments what do you do to help calm yourself down? I would love to have more ideas. Plus what are some of your anxiety symptoms? Comment down below because I’m really curious and I’m interested in try some new things to control it.
So for today’s post I decided not to do a video due to really struggling with my mental health. This last week was a huge struggle when it came to my anxiety and my depression.
I just felt so overwhelmed with everything that was going on in my life and so many changes. Plus one of the major things I struggle with is feeling like I don’t fit in or like people are talking about me. I’ve always dealt with people not liking me especially as a kid and it’s something that has always hurt me. I always try to tell myself that I should continue to be myself but I still struggle with accepting myself.
For a while I actually thought of taking a mental health day at work but I ultimately decided not to. I just felt guilty thinking of calling in to work and I really wanted to be around family but many of them were going to be working as well. But I also felt a lot better after going through the weekend.
To help with my mental health this weekend I talked to my dad a lot and just really let him know what I was feeling. I also took the time to do a journal prompt and ultimately just did a lot of writing. Overall my mental health is something I’m still working on and something that I’m still struggling with. Sometimes I don’t know what else to do. But I know that it will get better.
But what do you you guys do for your mental health? Also what advice do you have for me and what I could try to work on self love and also my confidence since I struggle with that. I would love to read your comments and I hope that you all have a great week.
As I’m sure many of you have read before I’ve been trying to practice meditation. I know that for a lot of people meditation just seems like a lot of sitting and breathing but it’s a lot more than that. For me it gives me a sense of calm and let’s me focus on the things that I love and enjoy. It takes me away from the stresses of life for just a little bit and also helps me to better handle certain situations.
I decided to try meditation since I heard so much about it and the benefits that it has. Sometimes I have moments where I have a lot of anxiety and get depressed and I wanted to try something to help me handle it.
Now I tried many different apps and even YouTube for simple meditation and some worked and some didn’t. The best advice I can give is to start slow. Start with meditating for like 5 mins or less and then increasing time from there.
Currently I use an app for Insight timer and you can use the meditations for free but there is a paid version for $9.99 and includes some really interesting courses. I’ve taken a few that have interested me and they have been pretty helpful.
So try out some meditation practices and start slow. Also don’t get mad at yourself if you lose focus it happens.
