New me, who dis?

The last five months of getting 1% better each day has led me here, where I’ve designed my life in a way to allow me to tackle writing my first book (with a lot of help), I’ve officially lost 50 pounds now, I feel great and I know, without a doubt, that I don’t give up on myself anymore.

If you are waiting something out, afraid to ask for the help you know you need, concerned about what it will make you look like to take the meds...I want you to know it takes a lot of strength to ask for help, especially when shame has kept you paralyzed about it.

Go get the help. It makes you a badass, because badasses CHOOSE to do hard things.

Rest Don't Quit

Rest Don't Quit
Right now, I would’ve quit on myself though. But...GRIT means I won’t. That’s what will keep my 1% transformation moving forward, teeny tiny little steps at a time. Each time I rest and don’t quit is a 1% improvement.

Today I will rest, when I normally would’ve quit.

Do you have an encouraging story about when you’ve rested instead of quit? I really want to hear it.

The first step to fixing your problem is admitting you have one, right?

This month I’m doing a nutrition challenge with some of my best GRIT girlfriends. The rules were that you could pick whatever eating plan you wanted as long as you stick with it for the whole month (I’m doing Plant Paradox 30, some are doing Whole30, some doing Keto and some Paleo). We report what we ate at the end of the day to the group.
