3 changes in 3 months

Hi

This year I changed a lot of things in my life. But there are three main changes that are the reason I feel I’m working on becoming the better version of myself. I change my diet, yes only have been three months and almost a week working on my new lifestyle (keto diet) but so far is working wonderful. I have lost weight, I feel that my health have been improved since I decided to take more care of myself. The second change is that I stop drinking any type of alcohol drink. Not that I was drinking a lot but here and there like 2 or 3 times at month a beer or a cocktail. So for me wasn’t that complicated and I feel I don’t need it anymore to live a better life. That wasn’t a goal like quitting all but as part of the new diet it is a plus so “two birds kill in one shot”. The third change that I made was to let my real and natural hair breath without any heating tools like (flat-iron, hair dryer and curling iron). I also tried the Curly girl method to improve the quality of my hair curls. It was an amazing experience. Made me my love more my hair, and take a better care of it. I hope to continue with this amazing change because my hair is like part of my roots and a good reminder of it.

In general this 3 things have been the most amazing experience in a long time. I’m going to continue this journey of my new lifestyle that I have been loving.

I’m very proud of myself for taking the first step to make changes into my life.

My goal is to keep going!

Ps: I started to run again!!!!!! &  I added the foam roller into my life!!!

You lose and you win

I have lost myself and I have a pep talk with my soul. I have been letting my younger years wasting my time and letting myself go, so far that my health has been an issue. I need to do something this time just for me.  So I’m in the process right now but I put in the work goals that I want to achieve. Losing myself to find my real self was a challenge but I did so I win.

Thanks

I risk it (short)

Hi!

After 4 months in recovery. For a twisted ankle that left with 3 swollen ligaments and effusion in the area just for a bad landing playing volleyball. Today I finally ran without any pain. This took a lot of patient of me. I felt very frustrated that it took so long. This run felt amazing it was just 0.51mi… But without pain this is goals. Recovery is important. I’m not sure if I can still play volleyball again yet but I’m sure that for running this is just the beginning. Back at it. I know is going to take time but I so happy and grateful be back slow and short pace and distance but for sure is more that stay at home with a brace and a elevated leg almost all day during long days, weeks and months…

I’m Back July 2018 (update)

Hi!

It have been more than a minute since my last post here in my blog. I don’t have any excuse. I just had a lack of inspiration since I injured myself playing volleyball. My Ankle still bother me. I when recently back to the doctor and still the same swollen ligaments and effusion that’s a boomer. I can walk better now, but I can not be active like before the injury.

I lost my inspiration, I lost myself in this injury and I gain weight too. Something that I’m not proud of. Now that I feel a little bit better I might start taking walks (is the most I can do for now) also I might start doing low impact exercises so my ankle is not compromise. I have try to run twice since the injury the longest I ran was 0.51mi and my ankle remind me for almost a week that, was a bad idea.

I want to write good content but when your tool is damage is hard to write about something that is not happening. (Like play volleyball, Running, Walks, Goals).

So I’m going to try my best to find myself again so I can put that in words for my blog, my journal. That way I can start slow but for sure my personal inspiration again. This blog had help me a lot and I miss it.

So I’m back at it!
