It's okay not to be okay.

Happy World Mental Health Day Let’s talk about mental health -  in honor of World Mental Health Day today. This is a super important thing we all need to focus on with ourselves. Being aware of your mental health is definitely something that you should keep up with.  My mental health lately has been shit . Not working and having zero income with bills is really hitting me, hard. I’ve been looking for jobs, I really have. And applying! I just think I can do better. I can do more and apply for more. I'm going to have to settle for something in the meantime. I had a MAJOR breakdown earlier this week. I found myself bawling my eyes out on my bathroom floor. And I mean BAWLING. Like, ugly crying, hyperventilating and completely hysterical. What is wrong with me? What am I doing? This isn’t me, at all. I’ve been in this slump and it just keeps getting worse. I just really need to focus on myself and getting my shit together.   I’ve been forcing myself out of bed and for

If It Doesn't Challenge You, It Doesn't Change You

Hello Beautifuls! ♡😘

 It's been a little while.. I won't lie, I wrote this post last week and am just now getting to publishing. I'm still sick. 😭

This week has been a nightmare. I'm pretty sure that I'm SLOWLY getting over the plague. That was absolutely terrible. I won't lie, I'm quite a baby when I'm sick and slightly over dramatic. 🀷 I can't help it - I HATE getting sick!

So, my back has been bothering me for a while, I decided to go see someone to take a look at it. Turns out it's my hip, not my back. He fixed me up, gave me some stretches and exercises to do and sent me on my way. He also told me no running. For at least a week. Okay, cool - I don't like running anyways! As it turns out, I MIGHT like running a little bit. Maybe it's the fact that I was told not to do something that makes me want to do it even more. I'm signed up for the Oberun 5K next Friday, and you can bet I'll be running in that!

In about a month, I'll be leaving for a mini vacay to Myrtle Beach! I don't have any bathing suits that fit me anymore, so I ordered a few new ones. I said f**k it and ordered 2 bikinis! YIKES! My first one came in the mail last night. I opened it up and thought "that's cute.. no way in hell will it fit me! SURPRISE! IT FITS ME! I legit cried. This is the first time in forever that I have put a bikini on, a bathing suit actually, and not felt completely disgusting. Hard work really does pay off. I'm half tempted to post pictures of it.

Father's Day yesterday was a success. I got to bring my dad to one of the workouts I do, just so he could see what it's like. He wonders why I keep going back. πŸ˜‚

I promise next time there will be pictures and I'll be more interesting.. I suck when I'm sick. 😷

I hope everyone has a fantastic week!

XOXO, M♡

Keep Your Squats Low and Your Standards High

I never know a good way to start out, so I'm just going to jump right in - here goes! I woke up SUPER tired this morning, maybe it had something to do with the wine I had last night? Probably not though. πŸ˜… I still got out of bed and got dressed for the gym. I find myself feeling pretty guilty when I miss a day at the gym, and I HATE feeling guilty. It has been 5 months - ONLY 5 months since I've started my journey. Well, technically I started going to the gym a year ago when they first opened, but I REALLY started focusing on things in January of this year. My trainer (Eddie Brooks - check him out!) started an  eight week 'No Excuses' challenge. This is where everything began. I started this challenge weighing my heaviest ever. Two-Hundred and Sixty Five point Eight pounds and my waist measured Forty-Seven inches . WOW. It's really hard to sit here and think, I did that to myself and had nobody to blame but me. I couldn't believe that I let thing

The Secret of Getting Ahead is Getting Started

Hi, my name is Michelle, I am 27 years old and this is was me (pictures below). I've always struggled with my weight and trying to find ways around exercising and eating healthy. Being unhealthy and overweight, for me, caused depression and a life of unhappiness. Emotionally eating only dug a deeper hole.  One thing I love is roller coasters and going to Cedar Point. One Summer, I went with my family and it completely broke my heart and embarrassed the shit out of me when I wasn't able to ride the Millennium Force (my favorite ride) because I was simply too fat. You would think that would have been my breaking point right there. Nope. After a couple of years and reaching my heaviest weight yet, I finally hit my breaking point. I couldn't handle being where I was. I was unhappy every time I looked in the mirror or went shopping for clothes. It was time to dig my way out if this very deep hole. I've always been told and have always heard that things happen f
