The Realest Ish I Ever Wrote (The Finale’)

Filed under: Uncategorized — naturallykish @ 7:53 am

(Thanks to everyone that has read my words thus far and will continue to read them or perhaps write your own story.)

I’ve discovered or should I say I’ve acknowledged what my problem is……

I’m afraid of success. I know it sounds crazy but its REAL!!!! Not the achievement part of success but the having to maintain part of it.

Let’s see if I can explain…..

If you fix a cake and its good, people are gonna expect that all your cakes be just as good, if not better. You can never present a cake where the icing came off a little bit or isn’t as moist as the previous cake. You are always expected to make a banging cake. Get it??? Good.

Now, I’ve always been more than willing to do all I could to assist others in their road to success. Its in my genes. I’m a people pleaser. And I’m ok with that. Not complaining. But what I’m saying is, when you have to be your ‘star player’ whether you have a support team or not, its scary. Its totally up to you if you’re successful. You don’t work, you don’t get the reward.

Some time late last year I began consistently going to my friends line dance class. Yes I line dance. I love it!!!! Anyway, in going to the studio I discovered they offered other dance classes that doubled as fitness/workout classes. I’m in. Funny thing is, I would leave dance class and go to Hibachi Grill or ColdStone or Ihop or where ever food was sold. Hustling backwards!!!!!

At some point I made up in my mind that fat is wack (rip nippy) and that its time to make a valiant effort to be the healthy woman that God desires me to be. I can’t be a witness to His greatness and love of me if I remain fat and lazy!!!

My current meal plan: mon-fri I subscribe to a 1350 calorie diet. I eat a boiled egg, toast and coffee in the am. A frozen lean cuisine or a salad for lunch and rarely do I eat dinner. If I do, its a salad or a veggie sub from subway. All I drink is H20!!! On the weekends I eat whatever I want which usually isn’t too off the wall b/c I don’t want to sabotage my week of good eating.

My current exercise routine: I walk the lake 1 time mon-fri and twice on the weekends. I line dance on mon, latin fitness tue, creative cardio wed, zumba thur. Fri, sat and sun I only walk the lake.

Everyday is a struggle but I have those in my corner rooting for me and encouraging me. I’m thankful to God for instilling in me what is necessary to pull on to want to be a better me.

I don’t have a goal weight. I’ll know where I feel comfortable once I get there.

Thank you for sharing my journey. XOXO to you all!!!
