Champion Challenge Day # 14 ” Fighting Demons isn’t Easy”

Hey guys! I hope you have a beautiful day and remember to drink you’r water. Last night we went to Patty e Pepe’s food truck at around 12;30 am. Their food was just as good as I remembered. We got home around 2 and t woke up around 8:30 The sun was in full force again and taking no prisoners. Lol Full of anxiety and not feeling my best physically was how i woke up this morning. Needless to say I woke up like an lioness. My husband was in a good mood and he winked at me when I first opened my eyes. It registered in my brain how cute he was but I was in such a disaster mood I didn’t even speak for the first 30 to 45 minutes we were awake. (poor guy Lol ) In my defense, these days this mood is a rarity. I feel safe and I no longer wake up full of panic and anxiety. Usually,

Our breakfast view

After giving Thanks we had our coffee with some friends of my husband who are staying next door to us for a few weeks while they are on their holiday. We talked for awhile and they were adorable.They are a wife and husband and then the brother of the wife. One of the gentleman’s laugh was precious and contagious. The owner of the house brought us out some fresh figs and he has a cat who stopped by to check us out and see if he excepted us. Lucky for us we were excepted. Lol We then got ready to go get some breakfast and some essential items and food for the next few days.

Breakfast was fruit and frozen yogurt which was delicious and fresh. We got our food and other items and went back to the house for some rest and air conditioning. My husband went back to work and I did Italian class and my work out stuff. Today I did some deep stretching and added a cardio workout. Did some tidying up,snacked on some delicious watermelon and yogurt, answered some emails and made my phone calls. Gave myself a pedicure, took a shower did a meditation and another little stretch because my back was feeling tight and worked on blog related shenanigans.

I don’t want to waste anymore time and at the end of my days have a long list with a bunch of Should’ve, Could’ve, and would’ve’s. No Thank you! So I did what one does in the heat of the moment. I made the commitment to better myself and hopefully someone would be on the same page with me and do it with me or just learn from my trials. Everything sounded great when I made the commitment to myself to do the Champion Challenge. Made a post I thought maybe 2 people would read and maybe 1 would want to do the Champion Challenge with me if that person reading learned something from my experience then Amen!

Staying committed to the commitment’s I have made for myself is very important. I feel like if I can’t honor the commitment’s for myself then how can I honor the commitments I make to others? What would our lives look like if we honored all our commitment’s? We wouldn’t even speak it, unless we were going to do it. Well let’s make it our goal to find out! They say that if we do it we will see results within 7 days on how we feel about ourselves and how others see us as well.

This experience has become full of life lessons and fighting my own demons. Currently learning that SELF DISCIPLINE is a word that doesn’t express how hard it is to achieve but it’s actually very difficult especially at first. Self discipline is a lot like Faith or forgiveness, or Trust, and Self Love in this way. They say that we need to have a strong reason why to prevail and move past our obstacles. I think they are 100% right. Thinking about my reasons why I want to do better and be better I discovered one that I’ll share with you guys.

One of my personal “Why’s” is I have never given myself the opportunity to truly be my best self. Spiritually, mentally, emotionally and physically and I think it’s time. Lol I want to feel some pride in myself, have my husband and loved ones be proud of me, make a difference in someones life and help whoever I can. Will I change the world? Probably not but I hope I can change someones life in some way. What are you’r personal ” Why’s” that is the reason you are striving for your dreams in your life?

The thing is…my husband and I talked about this last night, we both have this feeling to search to find something wrong. An anxiety that there is something we need to fix or stress about. It’s like we are conditioned to be under constant stress. It doesn’t make sense we are in a beautiful location surrounded by beautiful people and here we are looking for something to stress about. He is doing better then me I’am still struggling to not be in anxiety. A new place, new people, still learning the language, learning to drive a scooter,deadlines and life to live. It can be a bit overwhelming so I’m going to do my best to remind myself I’am in a safe happy place and God has our backs. I’m going to do some praying, journalling, trying to stay in the moment and with my work outs being consistent I think it will help.

Thank you for joining me on the Champion Challenge. Please feel free to like comment and subscribe and until next time stay Blessed and Inspired.
