What a BUSY week! I have been in the gym like a maniac lately and focusing a lot more on what I’ve been eating. I have been focusing on clean eating and at first it was tough, but now I am slowly losing the cravings for processed foods and it is wonderful. As I’ve mentioned before in old entries about how I was Pro Paleo and that it works for my dad, I realized it doesn’t work for me and clean eating works best because I cannot deprive my body of the whole wheat and grains. I don’t really eat an overload of carbs or anything, but it helps with all the working out that I do.
“You only crave what you consume. Once you cut out all the bad processed food, it may be hard at first but over time, those cravings will diminish and you will appreciate normal clean eating”
What was really exciting about yesterday is that I did a Zumba photo shoot! It was such a fun time and the photographer; April Zeer was AMAZING and so much fun to work with. I had a lot of different clothing options and I can’t wait to show you the magazine or the pictures that turn out once she’s done editing them! I have a couple pictures but they are only from my little iPhone. I believe I have another shoot with a different person on Friday so I must continue working hard on my diet and sessions at the gym in the next couple days. The article/photos print on August 20th so time is ticking!
My life has been such a turnaround this year. It started with a relationship that turned out to be a whole lie and waste of time. It’s crazy how you figure out all the pieces in the end and once you do, you can be good and done with it. Once I got to the bottom of how pointless and filled with lies this person was, I finally could allow myself to move on and practically forget about it completely. I have been so blessed to have this person removed from my life because he brought me nothing but down. Since everything has been over in the last two, almost three months now, opportunity has practically fallen in my lap; I have embraced what makes me happy, and truly have no worries anymore. It’s nice to really focus on what I want and not have to worry about being let down by others. I can’t wait to see how the rest of this year folds out!
hahaha this video is funny because it was after the shoot when we turned the zumba music off and just had random music on and i realized i couldn’t dance to it.
