During this transformative time, I was waking up at 5 am to head to the gym for 6 am, working closely with a naturopath and getting my health in order. I was exhausted because of the new routine and from the intense workouts under the direction of fitness mogul Lyzabeth Lopez, but everyday I made the effort to write in my journal every night.
I heard of this strategy of night time journalling somewhere. Basically, to prep for another day, you would write down what you would do the following day right before going to bed. It would give you a sense of purpose, intent and drive. It was odd but I tried it and it worked. I almost felt like I was commanding my brain on what to do and how it was going to be.
“ I prayed for an awesome day…”, I wrote on July 20. This was also something new I was trying. Literally praying to have an awesome day and it was working.
The following day July 21, 2015, I also had an awesome day!
Both nights I reminded myself that I would be getting up at 5 am and heading to The Hourglass Workout. Talk about determined. Even my husband was amazed to see me waking up this early to head to the gym. I was so focused on creating a new me. I am so happy I documented it.
If you are serious about making a change in your life, the first thing you need to do is start writing down the goals you want to accomplish. You can then begin to journal you progress, struggles and successes. It is truly fulfilling when you look back in your journal and see what you have accomplished or where you struggled. It makes the journey much greater and satisfying!
My brother, Mom and Dad we heading to the UK to attend his graduate school graduation. It was a powerful time for me because even though my little bro was graduating, it was my greatest accomplishment. My brother is my pride and joy. This was his moment. What an occasion for him… for me… while working on the new me.
