This blog is my outlet to assess my new lifestyle, see my progress, grapple with the struggles I still incur and continue my journey to find peace within myself. As a product of a positive lifestyle overhaul, I hope my story and struggles could inspire and motivate others to work towards their goals to be happier... because it CAN BE DONE!!
I’ve never swore so much during a NTC workout. But Sonja Moses’ workout KILLED me and I cursed the bitch, yelled “F’CK you!”and shouted “are you KIDDING me it’s not done yet?????” and then thanked her at the same time. I’m sorry in advance, I’m crazy. Shows how much I’ve been lagging in the fitness department.
But life has taken an interesting plot twist and I find myself continuously hitting the books. I will do a run or workout sparingly throughout my studies, but more often than not, I’m being pretty studious. My last journey exploring the nutrition field has lead me to think about the bigger picture of healthcare and inquire about the whole scale rather than simply preventative care. My heart belongs to preventative care as it is what changed my life, but as I dove into the field and spoke to those that needed preventative care the most, oftentimes they needed SO MUCH more care. Their blood pressure chronically high or even that preventative care was out of scope and they were genetically predisposed to mental/physical illnesses or cancers. I’ve gained so much more compassion and insight to reality after seeing this and experiencing this that it has altered my career plans and is propelling me to strive for my master in Entry Level Nursing. Please don’t get me wrong, I’m not betraying my preventative care friends, but it would kill me if I wasn’t able to help others more. I will always and foremost be an advocate for prevention.
As I finished my year long nutrition program, I made the decision to go back to school full time and get the right pre-requisites to apply for nursing schools. The CHANGE IS IMMINENT AND SCARY, but so good for me and exactly what I want to do. I want to be able to help people ESPECIALLY those I love and my future family. Also, I’ve been so emotional lately like a blubbering whale and….. I really don’t know what’s happening to me in that regard haha.
PAYCE, one love.
