It is crazy how I can self sabotage continuously with food choices even though I know better. How are you with food choices? After eating clean for weeks then having 3 days of unhealthy eating I feel nasty. Little family trip is no excuse but a good excuse! I feel like crap , food comatose, Swollen fingers, swollen hands, swollen feet, headache, thirsty, weight gain, and no motivation. Why do I continue to eat the crappy yummy food specially when I know how my body reacts to it. Right now I am beyond grateful for my health and I have the ability to continuously get my self back on track but it’s continuous bad choice making and knowing better that I’m working on. Is your health slowly declining? What is going in your mouth? What are your feet and legs doing? How is your mindset? What is your fear? What has you so comfort?

I truly want to use excuses but I know I can not. I truly want to blame it on anything but I know I can not. It is truly all about my choices. It is about owning self. It is about what I choose to put in my mouth and what kind of daily movement I will endure through the day. It is about tackling who I know I can be or want to be for my “why”. It is knowing when I am wrong, accepting when I have been told I am wrong, wanting to change because of me wanting to be better, it is attacking who I want to be and tackling who I do not want defining me.

It is important to have a true “WHY” to get you moving. What ever it is you need to tackle, it should be because of your “WHY”! Use your “WHY” to keep you focused on motivated. Hold on to your “WHY” when all you want to do is give up because it is getting hard. Remember your “WHY” when you failed. Get back up because of your “WHY”! What is your why?

I am very aware of the importance the older I am getting to keep muscle strength, active moving, mindset and eating healthy. I also know it is okay to eat crappy foods but it’s balance of making wiser choices more often then not. It is not eating that last bite (some of us are in the generation where we had to finish our plate. Serve your self less food if you need to finish your plate. It is weird to be in generation where you heard elders tell you to eat all your food, your not full and now they tell the grandkids/great grandkids you can be done it is okay not to finish. Is isn’t good to over eat! What the heck is that! LoL. I still cherish it all with much love. ) I know that I want to live and not just exist. I know it takes dedication, hard work, mindset, and understanding of life to live independently and possibly still driving at 90! (Thanks for being amazing inspiration Grandpa Hironaka! I cherish every word that brings knowledge of aging gracefully from you. I will stop eating when I am full. I know as I am getting older and wiser, I have your permission grandpa not to finish my plate!! I love you grandpa!)

So anyways just please treat your body, mind and soul like you are important because you are important. You are worthy! You are smart! You are beautiful! You are enough! You are a WARRIOR! Be true! Be you!

Better Me!

Better self, Motivation, Inspiration, Mindset

Is life easy? Is life hard? What does your life look like? Are you satisfied with you? Are you better because what is around you? Are you growing and becoming who you truly want to be? What has you thinking life is just life, it is what it is, I can’t, it’s impossible, to hard, I tried….. and it just keeps going? STOP STOP STOP STOP STOP STOP

Life is hard and life is easy! I feel you don’t have a choice but you make the choice how you react, interact, and act in your life. I truly feel you have to see who you are and truly accept yourself and if you can not you have to change to become who you want to be and take responsibility. What ever has you thinking that you can’t well you CAN. What ever has you believing that it is hard, well I’m sorry to say this but it probably is hard or will be hard but maybe not as hard as you think. Why I say this, is because I feel “EASY” makes progress “YES” but it’s probably something you/we continue to do over and over or we/ you are good at doing already. Easy makes me think of safe zone, comfortable zone, or/and zone we conquered already. I feel hard is tackling the things that we use excuses for, the things we complain about, it’s getting outside our comfort zone, I feel it an understanding of getting to know self of who they want to be no matter what comes along.

Stop believing who you are not. Because that truly is getting in your way of who you are. It is getting in the way of who you are “MEANT TO BE” in this one life. You have this one life for a reason so “STOP” sabotaging yourself towards who you don’t want to be. Be better then your enemy. Be better then the self lies. Understand you are enough. But “YES” there is a but, “YOU” have to realize who you don’t want to be so you are capable of becoming who you are meant to be.

Who are you meant to be? What is your “WHY”? Can you answer these two questions?

What self sabotage have you done to yourself? Truly think about how you truly see yourself; the thoughts only you think to yourself, the thoughts of I’m not “important”, I’m not “strong”, I’m not “capable”, I’m not “smart”, I’m not “beautiful”, I’m not “brave”, I’m not “confident”, I’m not “enough”….. It just can keep going. You are not alone thinking these thoughts about yourself. It is not okay to think these thoughts because they are lies we tell are self. You have to stop believing the lies we continue to tell are self every time we make a “BAD CHOICE”, only in your eyes. What is a bad choice? For me a bad choice is being snappy, not being present, wanting control, targeting to much at once, unhealthy eating choices, posture (SIT UP! STAND UP TALL! It is so important. My grandpa and posture; growing up I never knew why he would always tell me, “SIT UP!” Blah, blah blah blah I heard at first. The older I became I heard “Sit up. The older I get blah, blah, blah I heard this. Then I heard this “Sit up because when you get older you don’t want to be hatchback. SIT UP! And now when we visit I don’’t hear that anymore but every time I “SIT UP!”, I think of my Grandpa Hironaka! My Gechan!.), and so many other bad choice.

We have to own ourself so we can become are self. Who cares about our imperfections because those imperfections are “YOU”! We see what others don’t see so stop your self sabotage, self destruction, self lies. Even if they see what you see it is not what they define you with. Remember there is always exception to anything I say because there is always that ONE PERSON. But if they define you by your insecurities, your imperfections think twice who that person truly is, who you want to be, do they make you grow or hold you back, is it based on truth or lies. Remember you are who you want to become. So start becoming who you are meant to be. Just be true and be “YOU”, a better me.

I am open for communication and sharing my tools that has helped me realize who I am meant to be. Being snappy is not who I want to be defined as (very hard one to crack) work in progress…….. But I am proud that I can at least see it, notice it, try to not act, and be called out on it. Being called out on something that I don’t want defining me is like a missile 3,2,1.. OFF my mouth goes but that is in my head and I breath and try my best to accept it because “YOU ARE RIGHT!” I should not be snappy I tell myself when I have to tell me children one hundred times to put their coat up, toys up (not just tossed in their room either), boots out of others walking way, back pack on the hook, garbage in garbage, yes to one snack not after 3 snacks then asking continuously because they are so hungry. Then you prepare them a meal. They don’t eat hardly any dinner. All the sudden they are full! But then here is the kicker they ask for a snack minutes later. Little Miss Eva realized the day she should probably eat her meals because waiting for the next meal can get hungry for child who can have no snacks until next meal.. Trying not to be snappy is work in progress.

Remember you are worth your worth! You are meant for this life! You are capable of attacking who you do not want to be! You are strong enough to tackle who you want to be! You are brave enough to beat fear because you are meant for this one life. Read to yourself until you believe in yourself. I am Strong! I am Important! I am Enough! I am Brave! I am capable! I am Courage! I am Worthy! I am beautiful! I am Confident, I am Kind, I am smart, I am ME! It is not about I used to, I should have, I once was able to, I am just….. It is about working harder and accepting yourself without excuses(fine line), complaining (fine line), age (fine line but no matter the age if you see a 90 year old person who still has their memory, health, fitness, self care, driving and you say I hope that is ME. That can be YOU! But he would say you have to take care of “YOU”. Thank you grandpa ( “great Gechan” my children. Growing up for 40 years it is “grandpa for me, now (but…) and “Gechan for my children”. I, we love you! )
