Big Things Poppin’

I am standing at the edge of the pool shaking and dipping my toes in every now and then, but I just can’t get myself to cannonball because my worries are paralyzing.

I feel fixated on all the things that could go wrong when so many things are going right.

What would happen if things work out?!?!

I want to start operating from this frame of mind.  Stress is paralyzing and it made me sick last fall.  I do not want to fall into that pattern again.

Even though I know all of this I am still moving at a snail pace and am clinging to carbs for comfort.  I need to remember that I worked hard all summer to get healthy and develop healthy habits.  I do not want to allow my stress and worries to undo all the good that I have done.

So this is what I am going to do.  I am going to keep moving.  Even when I feel like I can barely move.  When I feel lazy I am going to get up and do something.  This stress is only temporary and I would rather spend my energy on my goals.

So here goes!  I am going to make $hit happen!  I will keep you posted!

Love, Joy, and Blessings Always,

❤ Alana Xoxoxo

  1. Hi Alana, I can relate 100% with this. We lose so much time focusing on what could go wrong. I spend a lot of time worrying about the “what ifs”… And I spend the majority of my time doing just that. It is so counter productive… But there are some great videos out there that could help us overcoming our doubts and fears. It starts with us asking the question: so what if it did go wrong, what would I do to get back up? Often, it is not as dark and scary as we might think. We’ve been through a lot you and I, we can do this. We can figure this out… Also, did you know that doubting ourselves is actually a habbit? You should check out Mel Robbins. Such an inspiration and a help to find courage to do what must be done. I encourage you to go look at some of her amazing videos. And oh, you should also check out Hayley Pomroys view on carbs and dieting, it is so refreshing and it helps me tremendously in making good food choices in my life! You can do it Alana, you got this! xoxo Sarah

    1. Hi Sarah!
      Fall is a good time to make these healthy changes. Thank you for recommending Mel Robbins. I keep hearing great things about her and need to check out her videos. I will also look up Hayley Promroy too! I am at that point where I have been SO overwhelmed by all the information out there when it comes to fitness, nutrition, and self development. It is so nice to have specific people to look up. Thanks for your support and encouragement, Sarah! It means the world to me!!!

      1. Hey Alana! Yes it’s insane to see the amount of information online and in books. It get’s so confusing. The reason I really like Haylir Pomroy is because she’s a bio engineer like me. She is against starving yourself out and believes that you should eat healthy foods to avoid certain diseases. She’s very specific bout portions which I really need in my life. I like her approach because even though it is difficult at first, I see myself following this philosophy for the rest of my life. I’ve also been bonge watching Marie Forleo’s vids and I also like to watch Gillian Perkins’ videos. All these incredible ladies are so inspiring. And Mel is just so down to earth and funny. Definitely check her out. Her book “the 5 second rule” is in my list of books to read. I’d also recommend Chris Guillebeau’s books. They’re all good but I particularly enjoyed “Born for this”. I find that reading inspirational books is what keeps me on track!

      2. Thanks Sarah! I really like you and Hayley’s philosophy towards nutrition and health. I didn’t know that you are a bio engineer! That is amazing! That is exactly what I am looking for. This week especially I noticed that I was having a hard time focusing and staying concentrated and I think it was because I have not been getting enough calories to properly fuel my brain. I have been “eating clean” but also exercising hard and I probably need more protein. Thank you for the recommendations! I hope this will be a wonderful week for you!

        ❤ Alana
