Everyone of us has felt beaten down, broke, and broken at some point in our life, but it’s those that learn from these experiences that grow stronger and don’t repeat the same mistakes of the past. As tough as it can be, be thankful for the hard times because they are what give you perspective and strength to conquer any problem! #youcanhavesuccess @thegrowinginvestor
Our words have power. The human language is what separates us from other animals. It’s what gives context to our reality and our feelings. Change the way you speak to yourself and you begin to change your perspective and overall mindset. Make 2020 the year of talking positively to yourself and those around you! #youcanhavesuccess
The biggest adventure you can take is to live the life of your dreams. // Oprah Winfrey🌿 Never allow anyone else to define who you are or what you are capable of doing. Instead of worrying about disappointing others or not meeting their expectations, focus on not disappointing yourself🍃
Just because you’re alone doesn’t mean you have to be lonely. Time spent with yourself is much better than time wasted with people who don’t make you feel good about yourself. Use your alone time to learn new skills, discover what’s really important to you, and grow your confidence. Alone time is a necessary part of success. #youcanhavesuccess
5 Things I did to lose the Baby Weight After Pregnancy🤰🏼 . . Does anyone else find it hard losing the postpartum baby weight? Well let me tell you, RUNNING played a huge roll but it was not just all about the exercise. There is more to losing the weight. . . 1. What I ate daily: Lower Carb Diet and High Protein. I remained strict to this diet throughout the week except on Friday, I would carb load the night before a long run. Just comment if you want to know what I ate. . . 2. Make your Daily Steps Count! For me, my goal was to try and get to 20,000 steps a day. Nowadays, we all have smart watches or some kind of fitness watch that can help us be accountable. This is fun and it doesn’t necessarily mean you have to run. Just keep moving because it’s a great challenge! . . 3. One Hour of Cardio and/or Circuit of Exercises. Cardio is so good to strengthening the cardiovascular system. Running helped me tremendously as well as build my muscle tone. But I do have plenty of loose skin & stretch marks & cellulite like every human being. IT’S NORMAL! For those starting out, go for two 30 min walks with the stroller. When I first started out I would do an easy run in the morning & then after dinner I would take the boys out after bath for an evening stroll which would wind them down before bed. We now walk to see all the Christmas lights. As for exercises I did planks, body weight circuits, stability ball, band work, and treadmill circuits. Doing more now consistently! . . 4. Stopped Snacking at Night. This was huge for me. I would allow myself to have one last snack before 7pm (last breast feeding). Brushing your teeth & getting in to bed early helps! . . 5. HYDRATE with Water & Breastfeeding. Sure, breastfeeding helps you to drop the weight in the beginning due to all the calories being burned. It helped with my first but not for my second. I am one month official done with breastfeeding & apparently I had been holding on to 5lbs! I feel so much better.
You may not change the world all at once, but all of those acts of kindness really add up! Imagine if you help ten people and each of those people help ten people and so on! A simple act of kindness can have a ripple effect bigger than you could imagine. Alone we are only so powerful, but together we can move mountains. #youcanhavesuccess
Life is filled with ups and downs. Sometimes life is easy and exciting like cruising downhill on a skateboard. Other times it’s difficult and scary like climbing the top of a mountain. No matter what stage you’re at right now in your life, you have to move if you want your life to move forward. That mountain isn’t going away, you just have to start climbing. The journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step. So take that step and keep moving forward, no matter how long it takes you. #youcanhavesuccess
