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 there is one thing that I constantly struggle with and that’s relaxing. I’m always worrying or thinking about something that I shouldn’t. Usually when this happens it causes me to get worked up or anxious which is just terrible. So I’ve decided to try and few things to help me to relax and not worry so much.
I’m sure that many of you already know that I currently meditate and I enjoy journaling to get my thoughts out. But I’ve been thinking of trying to do more things so that I don’t stress out so much and learn to enjoy my me time and also just life in general.
So I’m someone who loves to schedule or plan ahead in some way so I’m thinking of starting to exercise more. Not anything crazy but at least 10 mins a day a few days a week and then work on it from there. I’m also definitely planning to take some time out to unplug and not be on my phone. That is something that I do constantly. I use my phone for everything so it feels like I never put it down. Also like I’ve mentioned before sometimes it’s the cause of my stress when I start to play the comparison game.
But also with exercising more I plan to start eating healthy, reading more books, and also spending more time on hobbies.
So those are my plans on trying to relax more or de-stress. But now I want to know some of yours? What do you do to relax? I can’t wait to read your suggestions. Hey I may even try some of them out.
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 just last week I happened to read an article written by The Verge that talked about a unreleased feature from Instagram that would’ve hidden likes. The only person that would be able to view how many likes a post got would be the original poster.
The meaning of this feature was so that followers focused on the content you posted and not how many likes a post got.
Well after reading this article it got me thinking about how the platform would be very different if this feature existed. I feel like if this feature was around it would greatly reduce the comparison issue to some extent. I feel like so many of us focus on how many likes a picture we post gets compared to our friends that it makes us very careful of what we post for fear of it not getting a lot of likes.
Also I wonder if it would have a impact on how many people would have actually been discovered as influencers because of this feature. As many of us know a lot of brands look at which people have a lot of followers or likes on pictures and use this to their advantage when it comes to brand deals and things like that. Well what would it be like if you couldn’t see how many likes someone’s picture got? I think a lot of brands would not use Instagram as a platform for pushing a product so much and many Instagram models may no longer have a job.
I know many of y’all are probably thinking well what about followers we would still see that count. That is true but I feel like it would be unlikely to tell if these are legit followers or followers this person may have bought.
Overall if this feature existed I feel like Instagram would be a very very different platform. But to be honest I kind of wish that it existed. I wish that it was a feature that you could turn on or off.
So now I extend the question to you…Do you like the idea of this feature? Would you use this feature? Also how do you think this feature would affect the platform? Plus do you think it would be a start to helping to turn down comparison surrounding the likes or what a person posts? Let me know by commenting down below.
