Challenge yourself

Challenge your self to do something you think you can’t do. If you really put your mind into it you will surprise yourself.

My challenge is to give up alcohol for 30 days. For some of you 30 days might not seem like a lot, but for me it’s a big deal, it’s a start and something is better than nothing.

It’s been 2 weeks and so far I am doing really well and I feel good about it! I have a mini vacation coming up and this is going to be my biggest challenge, but I feel I can do this and I will keep up with my challenge.

This challenge isn’t just about staying fit and a “no alcohol rule” it’s about challenging myself to doing something that for me is hard. I am not an alcoholic, I don’t drink everyday, but I do enjoy a drink ; ).

It’s only been 2 weeks and I am feeling really proud of my self.

Challenge your self for 30 days, maybe working out harder, giving up a food you like, soda, alcohol or even smoking. This is not only going to affect you physically, but mentally. Push your self, when you feel you are going to give in distract yourself self with something else. Having a friend to do it with helps so you can challenge eachother and even help one another.

So, What is your challenge?

Is it really that serious….

As humans we have the tendency to worry. I feel as a parent my worries are doubled lol. Have you ever stopped to think, “is it really that serious”? I feel as humans we over stress and worry. I am no different, I am always thinking and re-thinking and over stressing and worrying.

I feel sometimes we stress or worry about things way too much and sometimes if you take a step back and look at what you are really worrying about, it’s not as serious as we might think. It’s tottaly normal to be worried and stressed we are humans that what we do, but are we stressing or worrying about the right things?

Stop worrying about the small stuff, I know that peoples level of stress and worries are different, but maybe we have to start picking out what is something to really be worrying about like; a death, or you or someone close to you that is very ill, or not being able to see your family, or loosing a job and struggling to feed yourself or your child. I feel these are some of the things that should really be a stress factor in our lives.

I am not saying we are never going to stress, I just think that we have to take a step back look at what we are worried about and think; can I fix this and if I don’t will someone get hurt, is this something that I can work on, is this really going to affect my life if I don’t do it….

Anxiety and depression is something that is becoming more and more conmen in our society and stress and worries are a big part of that. So next time you are feeling worried or stressed think about and see if it’s something that should consume your happiness or is it something that you can fix or even just let it go and move on from it.

sleeping is for the weak!

Yes I know… 6-8 hours asleep is what we need to function and feel rested and I agree, sleep is great and needed. What I mean by sleeping is for the weak is, what are you accomplishing in your life if you are sleeping?

For things to get done you have to get up and do it. Don’t wait for anyone to do anything for you. You can’t seat around waiting for things to fall from the sky and land in your bed lol. Get up and moving the day does not wait for you.

Get up early go workout, eat a good breakfast, plan your day, do something interesting or creative. In the end of the day for some time might just be an “illusion” but to me time does not wait for you and sometimes we have to make time. Life is short and if you sleep for too long it might just pass you by

Blogging after 30

I have never blogged before not even sure how to go about this, but since turning 30 and seeing life in a different perspective I have decided to try something new. Since joining this app and reading some of the bloggers stories, comments, experience, and motivations has really got me even more intrigued. All of you have amazing things to say, life experience and advise.

F.I.T. After 30 is here to listen and learn. I come across a lot young people very motivated to be fit, I hope to influence the older generation that life isn’t over. Turning 30 for me is like a new beginning and there is so much about life that I have yet to experience.

Turning 30….

Have you ever had that feeling where this is going to be your year?? Well turning 30 was that “it” year for me. Thinking about turning 30 and where I was in my life made me wonder “what have I really done”; answer- “not much” lol. Turning 30 turned out to be more eventful than I expected, but not in a good way.

My 2019 started of with with a bang for sure, but not the cheerful bang I hoped for. My relationship of many years was ending, my daughter in the middle of this difficult time, my mind was all over the place, financially unstable and still unhappy at work. I was in a really bad place physically and emotionally. Until one day I decided enough was enough.

I have always had body issues always unhappy with the way I looked and still have some issues with that. With all that happening I decided it was time to get back in the gym and work on myself again. I started working out harder and eating better and I am actually seeing a difference, but I noticed my mind was still not in the right place. I felt my mind was not keeping up with my body and decided to seek a little extra help.

I started talking to a therapist and opening my mind to see things different and understand my self a little better.

This is just the start… life will always bring ups and downs, but that doesn’t mean we have to stay down. It doesn’t matter how much you can lift or how good and strong you think you look if your mind isn’t in the right place.

This is where F.I.T. After 30 comes into place. F.I.T. After 30 isn’t just about hitting the gym hard and eating right, it’s also about being mentally there as well. I am starting a new journey now at the age of 30, but there is no late start, you just have to start at some point.
