If you’ve been following me for any time so far, you know I am quite the busy girl.
Not only do I have a full time job as a social media strategist at a digital agency in Chicago (which I absolutely love), but I also have my own business where I coach other passion-driven solopreneurs to get their marketing in order (and mindset stuff as well). And can’t forget my darling Sensual Appeal Blog (aka, this right here), where I blog about healthy choices, lifestyle and food.
That’s quite the full plate I have there (no pun intended).
So you can imagine I sometimes get a little scrambled with to-do’s and tasks that I have to do… and for a while, my health fell to the wayside. The truth is, I just now got back on the exercise wagon (like, 2 weeks ago) after months (MONTHS!!) of very sporadic activity (aka, barely anything at all. Not exaggerating).
I’ve come to a point where, although I was doing great with everything work wise, I was starting to feel weighed down, literally and figuratively. I didn’t have a reliant stress-relief schedule (no exercise), I was eating whatever I wanted because I was too busy (or lazy) to cook (lots of delivery and takeout) and I gained some extra weight which caused me to feel even more out of shape. And it’s not even vanity pounds I’m talking about. It’s those pounds that really shouldn’t be there if you want to function at your fullest capacity. And I was feeling the effects of it.
So I got my shiz together and I said “no more!” and I’m back on track. Yay. It’s time.
A day in the life of a young busy professional today looks something like this…
I wake up at 5:45am (if it’s a Monday, Weds, or Friday) and go to my gym for a Bootcamp class (which I just signed up for, crazy expensive but it’s just the kick I need to go and get back in the habit of going)
