    Goal Setting, Tasks, Strategies and Implementation

    Goal Setting is easy. We make vision boards to put up on our walls and slowly allow life to pull us astray because we lacked forming a strategy and breaking it down into tasks to implement. So today I go fully public with a goal, the plan and the strategy I intend to have in place. You can hold me accountable and check in via twitter, snapchat, or IG. — all handles @keshnadonia That said, today I took my measurements, my weight, set up a meal plan (I’ll actually follow) and got my mom and sister on board as supporters. Each week I’ll update you with a few stats, images,…

    Falling Off The Wagon

    One of the most difficult things I’ve found is getting back on the wagon after I’ve fallen off. It’s been a constant struggle trying to get back to a regimen if working out, prepping meals, and taking on client work – all while working a nine to five. It’s practically impossible to do all those things and remain sane. I think back and try to figure out what my motivation was and where my determination came from – and sometimes it was an upcoming event or a team of people that helped keep me accountable. I have steadily been gaining weight and have crossed over the 200 mark. I can…

    Mini Make Up Haul

    The Days Events Would you believe that my day started at 4:36 am on a Saturday Morning? I often tell people that I am a light sleeper. I woke up due to a text message that came through – a bit odd considering my phone normally goes to sleep after a certain time. Someone reached out and let me know they sent a donation. (YAY)

    My Love/Hate of MakeUp

    Opinions are like belly buttons. Everyone has them but they don’t really matter.  Now that I’ve cleared that up, let’s dig into my love/hate relationship with make up.  I love that you can literally transform yourself. Last week I did my makeup everyday and it had a direct affect on my mood and my attitude. No one in the office could tell me off – yes it gave me a boot in confidence. But many people take it that if you need make up to leave the house then you don’t love yourself or that you lack confidence – or that you are being “fake”.   I see it as…

    Motivation To Get Moving

    In 2015 I successfully dropped 27lbs. In my workplace we made our own competition. We would all weigh in on the same day, if you maintained you were fine, if you gained anything you paid $5.00 for the week, and at the end of the competition biggest loser (most pounds lost) takes home the money pot. I came in third place, but I had additional motivation to get moving and dropping the pounds. My brother was getting married and I wanted to look good. I had a few support systems in place too. Made a group chat with my friends and every week we would check in. Fast forward to…

    In Two Years

    This morning I was scrolling through my photos on my phone and I came across one that was taken during my brother and sister (in law) wedding shower. I was so happy back then. I was working out, I enjoyed the outfits I was able to wear and well… two years down the line, and a whole lot of stress later – I’ve gained nearly thirty pounds, a double chin and then some. However, looking at those photos made me realize I can still change a few things. It motivated me to take my behind to the gym this morning. I did 45 minutes of cardio. I figured that 45…
