So let me kick-off this blog with some of my worst habits (which I’m sure I’m not the only one suffering from it. LOL!) Ok let me get straight to it. First, I don’t exercise. Not a big fan of the sweat and the body pain that comes after it. Yes, I know I must do proper stretching before the routine and that my body will eventually get used it. But noooo…Although a few years back I did enjoy jogging around the park after work but, being the lazy-bone that I am I stopped doing this daily routine. I feel guilty for not being able to continue doing it because it did make me feel better after. So now I’m trying to challenge myself again to exercise as often as I could.
Second worst habit — I don’t get much sleep. Another reason why my metabolism is so messed up. I don’t why but I feel more alive at night. If I try to sleep early, let’s say 10PM, I will be awake by 3 or 4AM and not be able get back to sleep again. Ugh. I hate it when that happens. I did find the perfect solution, however, and it worked like a miracle. HONEY WATER. When I’m having a hard time getting a shut-eye, I drink a glass of water with honey in it. If milk works for others, this one works for me. Plus, I spray my pillow with lavender essential oil, the organic one of course, then the next thing I know, the sun is already shining and morning is trying to wake me. 🙂 I’ll share more on this on my succeeding posts. 🙂
Third worst habit — I keep forgetting to hydrate and eat my greens and fruits. There’s no excuse for me, I’m guilty of not drinking enough water and not eating enough fruits and vegetables. I’m an obsessed “meatatarian”. But I will try and again, challenge myself to eat healthier.
These are just some of the few, and when I think about it, I feel scared for my body. My Mom suffered from breast cancer a few years ago and had a mastectomy. I was with her during her battle and it was the hardest and darkest days of my life. I realized that if don’t start taking good care of my body NOW, there’s a big risk that I, too, will walk that same path. I would rather not count the mistakes I’ve made (and making) and instead start fresh.
The body impurities that I’m experiencing right now, like acne breakouts, excessive belly fat, etc. are the result of not giving my body the proper nutrients and treatments it needs to function properly. Everything is my doing and I will do my best to try to make it up to my body. Today is the day and I’ll share my journey, hopefully, to anyone out there trying to change and trying do the right thing.
Yes, we can! Let’s do this!
