When I read my horoscope earlier, I just thought to myself, "No, no one is going to notice anything or say something". Then my Dad comes over, and, surprise! He tells me how skinny and good I'm looking. The stars and the universe is trying to send me a sign that working out at home since September is starting to pay off!

See this image largerIt's super cold this morning in California.See this image largerSee this image largerMy health horoscope read my mind today. I'll admit that I have been lowkey stressing out about getting older (I'm 25). I just need to try to tell myself that the future ahead is bright and life will only get better within time. "Aging is inevitable and impossible to stop." So instead of worrying about how old we are or how old we will be, we should try to embrace it instead and realize that every day we wake up in the morning is a blessing and a gift.See this image largerMy daily horoscope is on point today! "Maybe a good laugh will do you, your friends and family a world of good and your health." My family and I were joking around and sharing a few laughs together this morning while having coffee together, and then I read this.See this image largerHappy Monday. My goal this week is to work hard on my diet everyday this week until Thursday and take a little break on Thanksgiving. Then once that's over, I want to keep trying my best up until Christmas. Then get back to work on my diet right after Christmas. I feel like these are pretty realistic goals I'm setting.

The lady working at the donut shop gave it to him for free).See this image largerA shoutout to all you coffee drinkers! Do you drink coffee to wake you up, or do you drink it because you like the taste? Or both? I drink coffee because I like the way it tastes.See this image largerI just recently found out about bacon s'mores. Yum or yuck?See this image largerI just realized something. I managed to exercise AND stay within my calorie range every day this week. That's something to be proud of! I've been trying really hard lately. Here's a health horoscope (for me) and all you Capricorns out there. See this image largerNever be too hard on yourself, talk badly about yourself, belittle yourself, or disrespect yourself. These are things I have to remind myself everyday. Instead of pointing out anything negative look for the positive instead, and always take pride in who you are. Everyone wants others to be proud of them, but they are missing the fact that what is most important is being proud of yourself.See this image largerThose baby steps are all going to add up one day sooner than later. Don't give up now, you've come too far. -Note to self-See this image largerDont worry or stress too much. Whatever needs to happen was meant to happen. Trust the universe. Sit back and let it create magical opportunities for you. A door is bound to be open for you. What you manifest, you attract. If you think positively you will attract that kind of energy in return.See this image largerDecide to enjoy the journey and appreciate the effort you are making instead of stressing on not already reaching your destination. See this image largerWhen you feel like giving up, hope whispers "try it one more time".See this image largerLife is too short to be lived angry and bitter. And don't take life for granted. Every second, minute, and hour is precious. Every day, week, month, and year is a gift. Treat it that way. If you get upset over every little thing, one day you will regret wasting your energy and time on it when you could have just been happy.See this image largerLet those mistakes and slip ups inspire you to jump back on the wagon quicker and even stronger this time! See this image largerYour struggles and challenges are what make you the most beautiful. You could never become a rainbow without rain.See this image largerYou can look for and find a lesson attached within almost anything. See this image largerWhen life knocks you down, you can decide to let or not let it keep you down. We all have struggles but whether we let those problems overcome us is up to us.See this image largerDon't let frivolous words that spew out of people's mouths bother you. Ignore it, move on, and just go about the rest of your day. You'll realize that you are much happier when you can learn to brush off foolish things that people say to you or about you.See this image largerA Christmas collage made by me.

See this image largerDon't spend too much of your time regretting your mistakes, because in the real world you're bound to fall down a few times no matter what.

Committing to a new lifestyle is a very serious decision to make, and first you have to be honest with yourself about why you want to lose weight and exactly what you are willing to do to make that happen.

We all have our different struggles, but something we have in common is we are all on the same path and in this together. We may have different goals, but we all have the same destination. So yes, we DO all understand what it takes to accomplish personal victories, because we've done it ourselves!See this image largerLove this.

Everyone is special in their own magical little kind of way, no one can be you, and that is your superpower. I have already given you one positive thing to reflect on about yourself, but you will decide the rest. So for this New Year, put it out into the universe, tell everyone what you love about yourself.

In 2012, I decided I wanted to lose weight but did not reach my goal until 2014. In 2015, I gained all the weight that I had lost back, and then decided to try to start losing weight again in 2016 and was successful. For 2018 I want to reach my goal that I feel like I should have already accomplished by 2017.See this image largerI've come a long way! A total of a 51 pound loss.

The more you get used to being lazy, the less likely you are to break the cycle. However - when you change the direction of your path and welcome a new love of productivity into your life, you won’t even be able to imagine just sitting around ever again, or how you ever let yourself get to that point. When we change our habits, our habits change us. Happy Wednesday! 💛See this image largerDad would like to wish everyone a happy Summer day. 🌴☀️See this image largerThe sunset in California tonight.

I decided to have a raspberry smoothie made with a couple scoops of ice cream instead of a cone. You can find these little icecream cones that are only 20 calories each from the store. They even have 15 calorie ones, but I couldn’t find those last time. A big scoop of icecream is 210 calories which makes a homemade icecream cone total to about 230 calories.
