A side project

So, I decided to start a little side project – a blog about life improvement and stories. I am still totally committed to personal training, wellness coaching, and everything else but I wanted an outlet to tell personal and others’ stories to inspire readers to be their best. If you are interested, here is the link: Mama’s Got Change

Improvement, Day 1: love

“ugh. I don’t want to wake up. I feel fat. My head is foggy. I want to stay in bed. Ugh.”

I hope that no one wakes up saying or thinking any of those things. Those words are uninspiring, unmotivating, and pretty depressing. If those thoughts do creep into your mind, let’s think of some other things to say, i.e. “The sky is beautiful. I want to get after this day. It’s a beautiful morning. I feel healthy and strong. I can’t wait to use my body and mind today.” Our mind is powerful and can change the course of our day – within ourselves on a cellular level and outwardly as to what we project to the world around us.

Let’s start today off with love. If we acknowledge the love in our heart and for ourselves, the love will flow from us to those around us.

Worthy Words

I took the weekend off from writing any posts. I spent time with my family and friends. We ate, laughed, exercised, told stories and worked on various projects. My husband and I ran the Hot Chocolate 15k on Sunday, which we followed it up by brunching with our friends and kiddos. The day was beautiful for running and spending time together. My husband and five year-old worked on building a robot Sunday afternoon, which my little guy won’t let out of his sight. Pretty cute stuff.

I’ve been sitting at my desk writing and rewriting ideas for today’s post. Trying to find words worthy of your eyes. Last week, I decided that I would dedicate this week to mental illness. Why mental illness? Well, some of the awful tragedies of last year and years past have shown mental illness to blame, while others are very uncertain as to why it even happened. I’ve been thinking about how to proceed with the idea ever since. After rummaging through endless articles regarding the senseless acts of violence over the years, I started to not want to write anything. It’s scary, disturbing and really sad to read about all the “stuff.” So, I’m going to write about positive outcomes and helpful tips regarding mental illness in the week ahead.

Mental illness has such a broad definition. It ranges from depression to schizophrenia to eating disorders. To quote Mayo Clinic, “A mental health concern becomes a mental illness when ongoing signs and symptoms cause frequent stress and affect your ability to function. A mental illness can make you miserable and can cause problems in your daily life, such as at work or in relationships.” If this is you, please seek help.

I do have a story I am working on, but I need to tweak it first. In the meantime, love, help and support one another. 🙂
