Both so tired. It's been a few days of worry but we managed to get out for a couple of hours to hook up with friends. Ive hardly seem this madam this week so it was nice not to have to cancel yet more plans. Idid get called back to change my boy's dressing because he decided he was well enough to shower (doh) but was back in time for my food - and still managed to eat it even though I was pretty grossed out seeing his wounds so soon after surgery!! Day 28 of no smoking, rather proud I haven't caved this week!
As daft and as simple as it sounds, talking to people or about why you make certain changes, such as #quitting#alcohol and trying to be #sober , helps more than you would think. People wouldn't often see the you that goes home to constant arguing, strained friendships and family bonds, the "I cant remember who I spoke to" you - all brought on because you "had to" have a few #beers before going home, or because you felt bored so wanted to pass time. Every day. I personally feel more content and at ease with my life since admitting to myself that #drinking was a problem, #sobriety has given me a fresh perspective on so many things from being able to hold my tongue rather than snapping, listening, appreciating spending time with people. Had a quite tough week which would normally result in me running my bar tab up. Not this year though. #16monthsandcounting#soberlife#mysoberjourney#soberupbuttercup
Sorry I know it’s offensive to some people that I love but sometimes it takes that tough love for people to open their eyes !!! Y’all can’t smoke around me anymore .... I know I know I’m judging I’m pushing my views I’m being over bearing ... sure...is that it or is it the toxic chemicals I’m not willing to ingest just because of making you comfortable .. nah sorry not anymore !!! This shit is toxic and it’s not only for my benefit it’s for yours as well ! I set out to be a good example I chose a healthy path in life to help inspire others to bring healthy lifestyle patterns into their own lives by trying my best to keep up with my healthy livity !!! So again for your sake ... it’s time to quit ! It’s toxic it’s harmful and it’s time to remove it from your daily habits ... it only takes some willpower and the decisions to do it !! I smoked for years I know many might think how could you you are so healthy .. I was I was vegan I was an athlete I was teaching people about Natural health and I was still smoking I remember people shocked to see that me the Natural health girl was smoking cigarettes and even still drinking alcohol !! It was a long long LONG time ago and I look back and realize now how silly I was ...But thankfully one day I was driving and saw a billboard that said “ NEVER QUIT TRYING TO QUIT” and that day I thought to myself .. I’ve never tried to quit .. I never really thought about it !! I wanted to do it ... so I did because it was a habit I picked up as a rebellious teenager and I just never thought about it it was just oart of my daily habits and that day I saw the sign and said you know what this is ridiculous I am so healthy but this one habit is poisoning me and the people around me so that day I quit ... so anyone out there looking for a sign looking for a reason or just needin to be reminded why you are trying or need to quit this is it ! Today not tomorrow, right now not later ..after one last cigarette .. NOW THE TIME IS NOW ... quit smoking quit making excuses ... just quit and this will be the one time in your life you’re happy about being a quitter ... so blessings to you all on your journey of quitting ... it starts today .
👋 there world. I’m starting this insta as a safe place for my thoughts, reflections, experiences, and art/writing as I embark on my next life phase - quitting my job in finance/corporate America and setting off to travel, explore, find purpose and meaning and harness my own intuition. It’s scary to change your life, but it’s also liberating and empowering. Wilkommem!! #alifesetfree#mylifesetfree#quitting#newbeginnings#safespace#travel#wanderlust
Would you #believe me if I tell you that starting a #Busines is possible with a #job ? Well I did years ago and it worked; you should try it too if you want to get out of the rat race where you can't wait to get that pay check because is already gone.
I agree when people say damn it is hard to #startabusiness if I stay at this job I hate. The problem GETTING STARTED is not the job you have, is what you do to help you #achieve it; #Quitting a job before your business is #successful is not recommended to a degree.
Are you are ready to proof to yourself that you can also have a business? Get my #learning content at Hernandez MasterMind dot com forward slash #knowledge
If you are starting a Busines with a #loan or #cash in hand you saved or someone gave you, then of course don't you dare have a job lol; but if you're starting #broke and you're financially #dependent by that job #income then your #strategy is different. What worked for me was having a #boss that understood and allowed me to be FLEXIBLE.
Personally for me years ago, I started my first business with a job; because I was broke with bad credit and student loan debt lol. These obstacles did not stop me though from following my #passion to have a business, instead it pissed me off so much I had to proof to myself; that I'm going all in regardless of vwhat it takes me.
Let's fast forward today after 9 years, I've had my own business for over 6 years now which has provided for me and my family; something a job could never come close to. What made the difference though was my #dedication and #discipline to #become an #Entrepreneur . Now I own and operate several #businesses which combined provides me a pretty good #lifestyle .
Maybe you are one of those people that can't do it all yourself right now and rather have a #professional by your side help you? Then go to Hernandez #MasterMind dot com forward slash #solutions
Understand that if you stay at a job, your chances for #financial#freedom are not #possible unless you spent twice the time saving for retirement lol; However if you become an Entrepreneur with the passion to have a business; your chances for #success are in your favor.
One Leg >>> Zero Excuses
We all want to quit. Sometimes all day. Sometimes every day. We all have reasons, some big, some good, some real, some imaginary. The excuses some people hold up as non-negotiable roadblocks are not even inconsequential mild inconveniences for others.
Client x: I can't come today; I hurt my foot.
Me: one of my clients is missing her whole leg and she hasn't skipped an appointment. She can squat, jump, deadlift, do weighted planks.
Client y: I slept in today.
Me: if this appointment were a parole hearing, what would you tell the judge?
Client z: I'm not feeling great; I think I need to skip.
Me: sounds good. Should my clients with chronic pain and neurological disorders just never even try?
You get the idea. The way I see it, you can have one of three strategies:
1.) I will do whatever it takes - I don't have a threshold for quitting
2.) I will take this to a beforehand-specified and measurable limit before quitting
3.) I will see how I feel
Most people have tact 3, but try to make it sound like tact 2. If you're going to be a quitter, AT LEAST write down precisely and/or say out loud exactly what your reasonable threshold of quitting is BEFORE you start. Don't even pretend like anyone believes you when you say, "busy," "demotivated," "run down," or fill-in-the-blank-with-throwaway-response-here.
One day you may actually face a real challenge. You may actually lose a limb. You may get a dire diagnosis. You may lose all of your wealth, health and/or support. If you have strategy 1, you'll be alright. If you have strategy 2, you MAY make it. If you have strategy 3, you're lucky that you're even where you are right now.
Hey everyone👋Sorry for not being very active on here but, as you may have guessed from the picture, I haven't been following Weight Watchers.
For me now just thinking about pointing food is making me want to go on a full out binge session🙈 Also recently I've been living my life and working towards a future career and even though the plan says "it's a lifestyle, not a diet" that clearly isn't true cause otherwise I wouldn't have to keep re-starting over and over again. I want to be able to go out and enjoy a pizza with my boyfriend and a drink with my mates without having to worry about saving points somewhere else or how it's gonna affect the number on the scale😕
I'm still going to be watching what I eat and going to the gym but my sole aim at the moment isn't going to be how fast can I get to goal😊
Thank you for putting up with my yo-yo antics and I wish I could be as amazing at it as the other people I see on Instagram, but for the moment the 3 Brunettes are going to become just 2 brunettes😘
Good luck on all your journeys. I know you'll smash it💟💟

So here’s the thing..... When the only consistency you have is falling off the wagon, you’re always going to be fighting to #startover .. And when you keep starting over here’s what happens 🧐 You think you’re shit because it never gets any easier and you’re not getting any results 🧐 It always feels difficult because you are not building any strength and resilience 🧐 It seems that everyone is doing better than you (and they will be if they don’t keep quitting on themselves)
This morning I did my first #21dayfix workout. Why would I be paying to do an exercise and nutrition programme when in my #pastlife I ran my own PT company? Because I need accountability... In pursuit of #growingmybusiness and dealing with #housemoves and my dads chemo, I let myself go.
Workouts became “if I get time/can be bothered” activities and wine became the nectar of relaxation. And honestly I feel like 💩! So I reached out for help! At the weekend I did a menu for the week, a food shop and some batch prep. I’m already feeling like I’m detoxing - headache and feeling v v nauseous. I’m totally pissed at myself for letting it go this far... BUT the #newmoon energy has blessed me with a new #vibe and I feel a shift like I’ve not had for a long time. Like #thetimeisnow ... #bigchange is available to and for me now. So whilst I was working out, trying not to vomit, my mantra was “I am powerfully successful”... My #message for all #womeninbusiness is to act like the CEO of a multi million pound business NOW!
If you did would you keep quitting because it was uncomfortable?
Would you neglect your physical body?
Would you spend too much time working and not enough time with your family?
Would you #undercharge and #overdeliver ?
#makingmoney starts with your mind. It relies on your energy and vibration attached to the decision of WHO you need to be to get the things you want!! No more #quitting . Strengthen the muscles of commitment and consistency and just watch how much further you will go
Are you that ‘all or nothing’ dieter that after having a little slip throws in the towel and decides ‘sure to hell with it I might as well blow it, enjoy my weekend and start my diet again properly on Monday’!
One bad meal won’t make you fat. Re train the neural pathways in your brain to get straight back on track. Keep practising this behaviour and it will become a new habit.
By quitting at every little slip up you are prolonging your fat loss journey and engraining and programming those negative habits that is keeping your extra weight on in the first place. Keep things in perspective. Be sensible. We are all normal and willpower alone won’t cut it sometimes.
I teach my clients to allow calories for mid week treats or backload calories for Weekend takeaways so that they don’t feel deprived & more likely to binge. No one ever gets to their journey in a straight line, don’t expect perfection.
This shit is real obnoxious. You have been forewarned.
I'm trying to quit smoking so it is imperlatine that I preoccupy myself before I tear someone's face skin off.
P.s. I'm not sure Ive ever learned the full lyrics to any song. #quitting#shaggy
Again, this took major thinking. You’ll see me around when a new update comes out. Anyways I’m not giving away any accounts or in-game items.
