Insomnia and Anxiety

I needed a couple of my mama go shakes the other day to get me through my day!!! It was the first thing I grabbed in the morning before my coffee after a night of insomnia!!

The last time I looked at the clock it was almost 5am. 😱

The struggle is real! 🛌
You see I suffer from anxiety; have for years, and most of the time I pretty much have a handle on it. But there is on an occasion it will show its ugly face!! 😵

Anxiety symptoms that can lead to insomnia include:

Tension
Getting caught up in thoughts about past events
Excessive worrying about future events
Feeling overwhelmed by responsibilities
A general feeling of being revved up or overstimulated

Yup that is me in a nutshell right now!! 👊
I am not going to let it win though!!

Everyone feels anxious now and then. It’s a normal emotion. Many people feel nervous when faced with a problem at work, before taking a test, or making an important decision.

Anxiety disorders are different, though. They can cause such distress that it interferes with your ability to lead a normal life. After many years of suffering from it I have learned many self help ways to over come it.
I know how important sleep is for me and my health so I take this seriously and will do what it takes to knock it back down and win yet another round!!!

Here are a few tips on how I will over come this, and have overcome anxiety in the past, so that nights like last night don’t happen again!!

This past weekend I saw some friends that I had not seen in months, and some even as long as a year as we attended a vintage camping rally! That pic above is our new 1966 Kenskill! We had a lot of fun visiting and enjoying the weekend. Then there were several moments that I was truly touched and my heart was filled and I want to share this with you all.💚💖

I had quite a few come up to me this past weekend and say something about my weight loss! You see… The picture on the left is how many of them remembered me! This was the old me!

Quite a few were surprised and there were a couple that didn’t even recognize me at first!! It truly Made me feel good yes, but what really touched me was knowing how I was inspiring them!! I didn’t know! 😱
As a coach and a business owner there are ups and downs, and even sometimes doubts will set in! We want to help others, we want to reach as many people as we can to help end this trend of obesity! We want to help others feel as amazing as we do, but the struggle is real nothing in life is easy! This is no different; You have to work for it!!

Then you have moments like these and it makes it all worth it!!
You know It really is true with that old saying, that you never know who is watching and who you are inspiring!!

This past weekend……

😲There were questions!
😁There was conversations!
There were hugs!!

AND… The one thing that was consistent that I told each one of them is this!!

✔You are never to old!
✔It is never to late!!
✔You just have to decide that you don’t want to live a life of being
unhealthy anymore and take back control!!!

Stop saying tomorrow!!

I Got MY LIFE Back

its-about-how-you-feel-about-yourself

2-3 even 4 years or more ago I was not happy with ME. 😰
I hid behind every long sleeve shirt and baggy clothes!
I had to stop wearing makeup because my skin was so bad!
One of the biggest feelings I had to over come was how fat my face had gotten! Now I have pudgy face to begin with but my double chin had a double chin!!!!! 😱
I could not stand looking in the mirror and avoided being in front of cameras as much as possible!!

It was not just about the looks though! I was sick!
I was fighting Autoimmune diseases and was taking more pills than I should have been!

Taking care of me with the right nutrition through clean eating and Shakeology, on top of exercise not only gave me my face back, but it gave me my health, my confidence, and my life back!! 🍓 My skin has cleared up, my hair is healthier, and most important I DON’T HIDE ANYMORE! 😁💃
I share this not to boast, but to hopefully inspire you to make today the day you decide enough is enough and do what you need to do for YOU!

It takes just one decision to change your life, to live healthier, to feel free about who you are inside and out!

Join me along with 1000’s of others who are taking a stand on ending the trend to obesity and obesity related illnesses!!
