Time for another novel rant / life update 🙃 Those of you who know me personally, know that my current financial limbo situation has been less than ideal, and that I’ve had to cut back from devouring LA the way that I always did before. Do I miss trying out a new brunch spot every week? Of course. But what I really miss is being able to share my experiences with all of you who have supported my journey thus far. While it was difficult to adjust to my new limitations, I ended up embracing it as an opportunity to better my health and it couldn’t have worked out better. So I figured why not share this experience with y’all, even if it’s slightly different than my usual.
Meal prep, more water, no soda, less eating out, healthier snacks, smaller portions, and less late night eating has made all the difference. My love for the LA food scene hasn’t gone anywhere and never will, but I’ve learned to make modifications so that I can still indulge when I want to, while still making progress in my newfound health and wellness journey. -
I wanted to share this story with all of you to say that no matter what rut you might be in, there’s always a way to improve some aspect of it. I feel happier, healthier, and more motivated than I ever have before. I have a long way to go before reaching my goal, but baby steps have helped me make tremendous progress thus far, so I plan to continue the same approach moving forward. -
Do I still have stress and frustration due to my unknown career future & the wall I seem to have hit in growing my social following authentically? Absolutely. But I was able to take this time to make a change in my life that I can control, and after losing 25lbs in 2.5 months, I felt like it was something worth celebrating and sharing. I’m excited and optimistic about this next chapter in my life, whatever it holds. Stay positive and look onward and upward y’all. It’ll pay off big time ✨ Shout-out to @ellenyinfit
