Transform Your Life Project 2.0: #28

Hello My Dear Darling Friends!

I hope you had a wonderful week!  I had an extremely enjoyable week with some highs and lows.

My highest high was last Monday.  On Sunday night, my bf and I had talked about going to the beach on Monday.  It has always been a fantasy of mine to take a trip to the beach on a Monday mainly because I am usually always tied down by school, homework, or work.  And the mondays that I did end up having off were bad days to take trips because they were holidays when everyone else was taking a trip.  Even though we talked about going I wasn’t sure if it would really happen.  On Monday morning we decided to pile into the car with our puppy Ruby and we headed to the beach!  It was Ruby’s first time at a sandy beach and she absolutely loved it!!!

It was a day trip that was just long enough.  Before the end of the day we were both ready to head home.  

I recently opened an Instagram for my cat Alleyjandra.  I never thought I would be one of “those people” who made an account for their animals, but I totally am.  It has been fun to post pictures from her point of view and I have been able to reconnect with past friends.  At the same time it feels a little bit like a can of worms because I can already tell that I am getting sucked into the insta world.  I spend too much time on my damn phone so I am going to make an effort to spend less time on my phone and on insta.

I tried to get in touch with my little sister, but she is just not having it.  I was hoping that we would be able to meet for lunch and a walk.  It hurts, but I won’t give up hope…

I swam twice last week and it was wonderful.  Even though I was feeling a sad over missing my sister and out of whack emotions in general, swimming gave me the opportunity to feel powerful, strong, and unstoppable.  I am going to make it a point to swim more often!

I redeemed my Brightline Eating Boot camp.  I even made a private fb account so that I could be a part of the BLE community.  I am still slowly going through the “getting started checklist.”  A major part of me wonders if I can really give up sugar and flour for an extended amount of time?…  To be happy, thin, and free sounds like a dream and I want to make this dream come true.  I also figure that the summer is the best time to make a major lifestyle change like this.  My cravings for bread, sweets, and yummy things have been strong lately.  I hope that I can overcome.

I also realized that I don’t really know what to do with myself when I have a lot of spare time.  I know that it is a true luxury that is more valuable than any amount of money and there is a lot that I want to do, but getting started has been challenging for me.  I am going to work on this this week.

I did work on my Web Development Tutorial more than I have in a long time so I am happy about that.  I think it is time for me to start making to-do-list posts once again.  Those worked really well during the school year.

July:

Love Thyself Then Spread the Love

  • Take time for self-care.
  • Learn to be Confident.
  • Nurture your relationships.
  • Seek inspiration.
  • De-clutter.
  • Bring out the BEST in others.

I cannot believe that we only have one week left in July!  The time is flying by and there is so much that I want to do.  I better get started on my Summer Goals while we still have some summer left!

Are you enjoying your summer?   Comment below to tell me all about it!

Love, Joy, and Blessings Always,

❤ Alana Xoxoxo

  1. I hear you on the cravings! I have been eating ice cream after dinner like evvvery night & it’s become a routine. But then, I listened to this podcast and the guest was a skincare expert. She talked about how if you have acne (me) then you should cut dairy and see if that makes a difference. Ice cream is really the only dairy I have, but every single night is a lot to have in my system if it’s not good for me. I haven’t gone off it yet, but I will have to soon >.< lol uggh good luck getting off your sweet snacks too, Alana ❤ We got this!

    1. Ice cream has got to be my #1 reigning champion of cravings 🙂 especially this time of year. I totally hear you on that because I was doing the same thing. I started to get hooked on gourmet ice cream sandwiches, and these bars that had vanilla bean with a chocolate covering dipped in pretzels, but the biggest problem was that I could not stop at just one.
      I think the skincare expert is onto something when it comes to dairy. A few years ago I gave up dairy, meet and eggs and my skin had a tremendous glow. I miss those days…
      Have you tried Halo Top ice cream? It has less calories and even some protein. The consistency is a little different, but delicious. Maybe you can gradually ease into alternatives 🙂
      Yes Jess ❤ We Got This!!! Xoxoxo

      1. Nooo, I haven’t tried Halo Top! I really need to — I keep seeing it everywhere lol. I’ll def let you know when I try it out :)) Thanks, Alana ❤
