No one can force you to put in the work! You have to want it for yourself.
I felt like a truck had run over me when I woke up. My throat was sore, I was lightheaded, and the only thing that sounded good was my pillow. I felt so bad that I thought I had COVID. After a negative test, I realized I was just a little tired. So I jumped up, made eggs, spinach, and rice, and drank 35 ounces of water. Then I made myself get up and move!!!
Are you tired?
I don’t care. Get up and move!!!!!
You don’t need to compare yourself to your best friend, neighbor, husband, wife, sister, brother, uncle, or auntie. Instead, think about where you want to be physically and compare how much better you are TODAY than you were YESTERDAY.
Every day that you choose yourself, YOU win!
How to get started
- Make small goals
- Stay hydrated and drink 60 ounces or more of water EVERYDAY
- Eat well-balanced meals. Choose food that will give you energy without sugar crashes.
- Sleep Sleep Sleep
- Listen to your body and stretch when needed. Yoga is the best.
How to maintain
Believe in yourself! Stop taking shortcuts to lose weight. Think about it this way; every time you take a shortcut, you will put the weight you lost back on plus 5-10 pounds. The reason for this is due to you destroying your metabolism by yoyo dieting.
It is crucial for you to get in shape the right way. So first things first, THROW away your scale and get up and move!
Stop telling yourself that you’re too TIRED to do something good for yourself. We are all privileged to be alive and to be able to move. Thousands upon thousands of people are bedridden and will never get the chance to do what you are DREADING.
You GET to do something good for yourself, so don’t let today get away—no more excuses. You are not too tired to move for 30 minutes.

So true. Pushing through can provide the energy we felt lacking. Great tips.💕
That’s another point I will be touching on. Thank you for mentioning that! 😍💜
My pleasure 💕
I’ll be up once the cast is gone, promise.
You take it easy lady!!! 🙏🏽
That I will.
Thank you Elvira💜💜💜
You are welcome, Belladonna 🙏💜💜💜
You are a wonderful motivator. I always love your blogs that inspire me to be more confident and have a positive approach towards life. Excellent.
Thank you so much for saying that!!! You are so wonderful my beautiful friend 💜
I didn’t work out for three weeks…I went back to the gym on Monday…amazing how sore my body is 😆
That’s the best feeling!!! Good work LA!!
What I’ve discovered about working out is the more you do it, the more energy you have. There are days when I look at the track at the gym and think that I don’t want to do my steps. Once i get started, the energy comes.
That is so true!!!!! Good job🙌🏽🙌🏽🙌🏽🙌🏽💜💜💜💜🥳
Girl Belladonna, I threw away all of my scales over 30 years ago. Looking at them got on my freaking nerves and they were only depressing me. I actually think those jokers are rigged! SMDH! 😲😝😣 I’ve been keeping a separate log where I actually write down the date, number of active minutes (according to my FitBit) and what type of exercises I did for that day. It keeps me on track with my accountability. You go girl. I am so impressed with your commitment to being a better YOU!🏋🏻♀️🚴🏻♀️🏃🏻♀️
They are rigged and whatever number it spits out we either feel good or like professor Klump 🤣🤣🤣
🤣😝😅😜😂 Girl, you are ridiculously funny! LMAO!!!
Excellent advice, Belladonna. I may be tired when I arrive at dance or the gym, but I am always energized when I leave. 🙌🏻
Amen to that!!! That’s the best feeling . Knowing you did it and now feel so amazing 😍😍
A great motivation.
I do regular workout, and I enjoy it.
But, at the same time, I listen to my body and it’s need. If it’s demanding rest, I give it rest. If I have an ache somewhere, I skip exercising that day. It’s good to push past your limits, but it’s even better if you are paying attention to your body.
That’s the key! Listening to your body is always the best idea 💪🏽
Today I was supposed to do 45 mins HIIT. But, I had to quite in the mid. As it was very intense.
And that’s okay!!!! I have done that so many times.
