I couple of years ago I ventured on my own to blogging. I had been part of the blog my hubby and I started and I’m still part of it but this time I wanted somethings different as I wanted to share my journey into my new me.
If you have read my About Me you probably have seen a little about my background and the beginnings of my journey. Sometimes I get the question a lot about why I do all these crazy things and those always make me think about the whys. I mean we all do these for fun and if it wasn’t fun then we are paying a lot of money to be miserable. I’ve compiled a few of my motivation tips around my blog and you can take a look around. It is the psychologist in me that keeps popping out and of course I have to apply my own psychology a lot of times.
I also serve as a Commissioned Officer with the U.S. Public Health Service and I tri to live by our mission and core values. Our mission reads: “…to protect, promote, and advance the health and safety of our Nation.” I live by it because I believe in it, I’m a firm believer that we can have a healthier Nation if we all put a little of our own into this cause. Of course, I am in the frontline of this, but with my job I try to raise awareness about how being active and in general living a healthy lifestyle can lead to many more positive things. I also tri to lead by example, being to my team, my co-workers, my patients, in and outside of work, even with my own family.
I didn’t find out about being healthy and active until well into my 30’s and I wish I had found it earlier, I didn’t dislike exercise, I paid many months of some unused gym memberships through the year and maybe I went to the gym for the wrong reasons. A lot of times was so I didn’t feel guilty for not throwing my money away. Nowadays, we have a membership and we know we have a purpose, we go and we have our mission when we go, and best of all, it doesn’t go to waste. We feel accomplished and good when we go to the gym. I still probably haven’t stepped in the weight room in a long time, mainly do swimming, cardio, spinning, but now I see the gym as a fun place, of course I tri to do as much as I can outside, now with the winter is getting harder to do it outside, so the gym is our training grounds.
I hope to continue inspiring and motivating others with my journeys and crazy (for some) lifestyle. I’m sure it isn’t for everyone, but like I always said, if I can change one life at a time I think it’s one more life that we got on the right track.
