Always strive to be a better person…

Never aim to be someone else because there’s only one of you and you have something special within that is personal and unique to your character. Everyone can be amazing in their own way so the only person you should try and be is a better version of yourself.

Keep love in your heart. One day, there’ll be no more tears to cry…

Have you ever been betrayed by a loved one? Ever felt guilt for their mistakes? Cried, not because you feel bad for yourself but you can’t help but feel sorrow for them?

If you have or in fact felt any form of pain because of another, you’ll realize that many people is today’s ‘busy’ society will tell you to shut it out, get on with it and just forget. This isn’t as easy to do as you may think. I’ve watched it happen time and time again, where people have been hurt and they manifest their anger through bitterness and hatred because they haven’t let themselves feel what they’ve needed to feel. You need to learn to forgive and you need to FEEL. If you don’t emotions may harbor within and can turn into unattractive characteristics, such as anger and jealousy.

I would prefer to cry often, not because I’m ‘weak’ or ‘silly’ but because I’m forgiving and I’m loving. I don’t want to end up  a bitter old lady who trusts no one but her cats. Nobody does. So if you do nothing else today just make sure that you aren’t letting any emotions boil within and release anything that you may have built up because time heals and you won’t feel this way forever.

Remember this:

“Tears shed for another person are not a sign of weakness. They are a sign of a pure heart.”

Top Ten Workout Songs… ‘KEEP IT GOING’…

Hey there!

You won’t know this but Jillian Micheals is my IDLE. She’s such a strong minded women and has inspired me to change up my lifestyle for the better. Consequently, working out has become a staple in my daily routine, whether it be walking into work, doing a Jillian Michael’s YouTube workout (link @ the bottom) , hula hooping or skipping. However, often I decide I don’t have enough time  so opt for five minutes of hula hooping whilst I watch 8  Out Of 10 Cats on the TV!

Nevertheless,  I have noticed massive health benefits including:

  • A better sleeping pattern
  • Less anxiety
  • More ‘ get up and go’
  • Weight loss
  • A more positive mindset

So I suggest if you ain’t. You should start (if you want) – Prime example of how I differ from Jillian.

So if  Jillian isn’t enough to get you on a treadmill, maybe distraction is the best key! Music can be so uplifting during a workout that it can completely distract you from the task at hand and make working out wayyy more enjoyable.

 

Here’s a list of my  Top Ten, Super Fun, Workout Tracks ( at the moment):

WARNING: I think a few of these songs are a little risque… proceed with caution if you are young or get offended by that kind of stuff.

mad about jillian michaels

 

Here’s the link to her 30 minute cardio Youtube video – http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=x9avonsRVok … I do this one as much as I can in a week ( normally 3 times) and here is her hour long workout – http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FTT4W8ygJ7w. I try to do the latter once a week but find it difficult to fit in as often.

Good luck if you attempt them guys 🙂
