Have you ever had one of those days when you just don’t feel like yourself and it takes serious effort to hit the gym and get on with your day? Well…that was today but I managed to get myself to spin and lifting, get out of my gym clothes and on with my day. And guess what? I’m glad I did because I feel better. I know I’m not the only one who has these days, we all have days like this. We need to remind ourselves that every effort counts even if we know we have had better days, it’s time to let go of ‘what was’ and appreciate your small efforts. I’m accepting and moving on that today was just one of those days! #LifeHappens #FocusOnThePositive

10 years ago exactly I set out on a journey, a journey of self-discovery and adventure. After graduating from university there was opportunity to stay in Canada and start my career but that wasn’t what I wanted to do. I knew I needed to leave the comfort of living in my city and with my parents and move somewhere unknown to me. I chose to move to South Korea, a country I knew very little about. 
Since elementary school I have always believed that experiences (both positive and negative) are what help form a person’s psychological development and maturity. I was determined to experience a new culture, become immersed and adapt to my new life. My goals were to gain personal growth, knowledge, experience, and to regain my health back. 
Let’s rewind to 2004: During this year I allowed the stress of school and other circumstances in life to discontinue any workout regimen I had and to stop practicing all nutritional habits I had obtained over the years from reading Health & Fitness magazines and books and I began emotional eating to cope. Within 6 months I went from a size 8 to a size 11/12 (just to give you perspective). All in all I gained nearly 40 LBS. As you can imagine, this was a low point in my life. There were moments when I gave up but there were also moments when a small part of me believed that ‘this can’t last forever’. I bet on that small ray of hope and I promised myself that one of my goals by moving away was getting my health and fitness under control. Over that year I managed to gain healthier habits and slowly lost the weight. I didn’t rush things as I was trying to figure out what worked for me and my lifestyle. I didn’t want to just ‘lost the weight’ quickly because I had tried MANY diets in the past and every time I would go back to my old habits I would regain the weight. This seems like a no-brainer now but back then I needed to experience it myself for it to stick. The point is, you can make a lifestyle change but only you can do this. πŸ’ͺπŸ’ͺπŸ’ͺ #transformationtuesday

And no last guilt-free meal would be complete without a chocolate chip ice cream sandwich!

I could only do half. It hit the spot but I’m tapping out now.

So tonight was a planned guilt-free meal and the place we wanted to grab a burger closed early! Arg!!!!

We ended up finding another place to eat. Better than nothing but NOT like the original place. The fries rocked and I ate half the burger. 

Over the next three weeks my coach and I are going to test out a few things and see how my body responds differently. Everything has been going well the last 4 ish months and now it’s time to try something new to switch things up. I’m looking forward to it. I’ll share done if what I’m eating this week and the next two.

Stay tuned!
