Hitting Rock Bottom

Deciding to Change is Not Always Easy

 

I am coming to terms with my health, and well being, and how it needs to be turned around or else I could very well lose my life.

It sounds dramatic but it is the truth, I have gained about 100 lbs over the last two years due to stress, depression, and emotional eating.  I have came to realize that it is time to turn over a new leaf, for good.

Believe it or not that’s where I got my inspiration for my blog name, The Polka Dot Life refers to each topic, or polka dot that has helped me become bold, but classy in my life.

The first step that I am taking is to work from the inside out and figure out how this happened and what I can do to fix it.

The first dot is to find my faith again.  I have a strong connection to Mother Earth and Father Sky and a connection I wish to rebuild with my familiar.  Nature is my church and she has many lessons if you are willing to open your soul and listen with your heart.

The next dot is business and skills to boom your business and rock social media!  One way I plan to this is by getting back on track and organize my time so that I do not slack off. I have started realizing when I reschedule and keep track of my to dos and schedule them daily, I have time to do the things in life I enjoy, such as spending time with my moms two chihuahuas, my ferrets, my sugar glider Lily, and most importantly my family and friends.

The third dot is finance and this refers to learning how not to blow money and tame those impulsive thoughts.  For me I love fashion, beauty, hand bags for sure, and books, slowly, I have learned how to tame my temptations and pay what needs to be rather than what I want at that very moment.

The final dot is Fitness this refers to getting back into shape.  I wish I could just go hop back into Turbo Fire or T25, but with my Achilles tendinitis, and weight exceeds, right now it’s best to take it slow until I shed a good 50 lbs and can handle a little more of a challenge.  I am starting with a workout called Baladea.  It is a mix of yoga, meditation,calm, cardio,and, sculpting.  I love this because not many workouts out there offer calming workouts included so I am so excited to see where I go.   I also plan on eating 1600 calories a day, reducing my carbs, and eating more lean meats, veggies, and more protein shakes

These four dots connect together to create a explosive, powerful, and happy life!
