Don't give up on something you believe in

Hello everyone,

I hope you have been doing great on the healthy train. I somehow missed boarding and then tripped a few times to finally get back on it. BUT nevertheless here I am.

My life has been a rollercoaster of emotions. I had family issues to care to, traveling, moving to a new apartment and a whole lot in-between. Oh yes and work. Can’t forget that.

So here I am. Between all the craziness of March and April I am finally glad to be settled into my routine yet again. I will brief you on what has happened in my life the last two months.

March-  Started off the month with mbestest friend and former college roommate getting engaged! I could not be happier! I’m also a bridesmaid and boy am I excited! I cantwait to stand by her side on her big day! I got to visit Jackson, MS for my yearly “reunion” It was the big St. Paddy’s Day Parade! I had a blast seeing everyone I love! Went to Memphis a few times to see my family. And that’s March in a nutshell (from what I can remember).

April- What an emotional month this was. Some good and some bad. I will say the most exciting part was my trip to NYC! Yes I finally made the trip I have wanted to make for a good 4 years. It was so nice to be there. It totally made me fall in love with the city all over again and evaluate myself and living in NYC one day. What I learned was that I DO want to be there one day, but in order to make it and survive I have a lot of growing up to do which there is nothing wrong with. I need to grow in many ways, business wise, health wise and mature a little more. I did get to see one of my very best friends living there and enjoyed having a glass of wine with her!

Now we are in May! I just moved to my apartment at the end of April and I have been trying to make it home the past two weeks. It is super weird I have never lived by myself before but I think I like it so far. It was a big adjustment for me. I did not want to and to be honest the weekend I moved I was crying off and on. I couldn’t decide if I was happy or sad. I think a mixture of the whole situation took a toll on me and I did things I was not proud of like turn to food. I promised myself I would never do that again…be an emotional eater and there I was. I felt like such a hypocrite. Who can I help and motivate others when I can’t do the same for myself?  I felt like hiding from the world. I was not happy with myself.

Like I have said time and time again. Dieting is probably one of the hardest things you can do. It’s so easy to fall down and harder to get back up. Some eventually give up and wave that white flag. Not me! I refuse to give up on something I have worked on for the past year of my life. I am not where I wanted to be at this point in my diet but that’s ok. It’s better to make those healthy changes then not at all. I don’t want to have another failed attempt at a diet. I want to make it last and I will! I have started an instagram to post my daily meals and coordinate with my blog. It will help me stay on track on a daily basis and help me blog more!

 Check out my new Instagram! Just search username Kellysjourney!! 

I know some of you are probably sick of this song and dance I go through but I am just being my honest self. I am just like every person out there struggling with a diet. It is certainly not easy and I applaud anyone making a healthy change in their life!
