Whew! This has been a WEEK! I hope everyone had an awesome week. If you haven’t noticed this is almost the end of the month! Already almost one month into the New Year. What have you been doing with your time? If you say nothing or you using the same excuses you used from last year, it’s not time that’s your problem you might as well receive that you are the issue. Anything you want to do you can even if you have to modify your plan. So what are you waiting for? Another New Year to not accomplish anything. Reset and start right now. The time is yours for the taking. With that in mind, it’s time to jump into this week:
I have lost another 9 pounds and currently I am 5 pounds to goal weight. I am shifting my work outs to weights. This will be about toning. I want to make 3 areas tight, the back, the arms and of course the stomach. Trust me I have plenty of time before swimsuit season to get it right. What has increased is confidence. I know that my body is doing what I want it to do because I am making it work and doing the work to get it there. I also was able to get out with my run buddies this past weekend and that in itself is amazing. We try to be sure that when we run that we don’t run when it’s at the freezing mark and even with all of my years of running, I have never run in the Winter. I am glad that I am able to do this time around. Another great this week is that I started a new position at my job. I love it although it took a little bit to get the information, I am rolling. I am not stopping there. So be on the lookout for me trust I got some plans up my sleeve. Also shout out to my amazing kids who are doing super good. We have incorporated friends and family to send us videos to encourage the kids. I believe that as much as we tell them we love them (daily) they need to know that there is a village of love supporting them. Shout out to my amazing village. It took a little time to build and mold it but these videos my kids have gotten don’t just show them they are loved, but let’s us know that we have support and love as well!
This week has been light, don’t worry I have been working. We are still in need of women to step up and answer the call to be interviewed for Women’s month next month. The reason is simple, we need to see women of all walks of life changing their lives as well as failing and overcoming. Sometimes we look at celebrities and aspire to be them or have this unattainable goal, but there are women in your own neighborhood, communities, and circles that are out here killing the game. Get to know them. If you want to participate send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org and I will do all the work.
What’s Coming Up:
We are getting ready for Valentines Day blogs and Women’s Day blogs. It is important to talk about Valentine’s day because as commercial as the holiday is, there are many people who lose it around this time. This one holiday sometimes can be just as triggering as Christmas. So we are going to do our best to cover you during this time. I will be using this down time this weekend to get my content edited ahead of time. I ALWAYS cover everyone from married, single, divorced, and those who just want to be light and fun. So be on the lookout.
I also am working on the new goals for the page. If you haven’t spent some time on the page ToiTimeBlog
We write-up some little tidbits, tell you about the holidays and observances, as well as let you know a little bit about me, February I will tell you a few of my favorites, what I love about the month, and keeping things fun and light. Check it out. Also be sure to check out Twitter
Oh and for those who know please find something this weekend that you love and spend it surrounded by those who love you. Too many times we are surrounded by folks that could care less and give all of this energy out knowing that if we were in a jam the same folks wouldn’t even cross a puddle for us.
Self care-practice it, find something that builds you up and do that daily. Please! It’s important than ever these days. If that means sign off, if that means unfollow things and people, if that means take a social media break, do so. Sometimes that may mean a nap, or a longer bath, or just an outing for yourself. These are just a few examples. DO what YOU need!
