Getting My Life Together.



Hey my loves! As y'all know I am always trying to help you guys in any way that I can. I think that sharing my struggles, downfalls, success, and strong points really helps us all. It helps me because writing is therapeutic for me and I like to believe that it helps my readers to see that they aren't the only person struggling and that after a storms comes the sun AND a rainbow!

I say all that to say that I am getting my life together! If you read my recent post The Struggle is REAL. then you know all about my struggle with my weight and eating habits. If you haven't checked it out, do so before continuing this post.

 I fell off the wagon, after not seeing the results I thought I should have seen after a month of hard work. For me, if I'm not seeing results I will quit. That's not a good thing, because things take time and I can't give up just because things aren't going the way I think they should. And that is in all areas of life, not just workout goals. 

So like I said I fell off, but I'm back! I just started my lifestyle change all over again! And I'm happy with myself so far and very proud. I have already worked out for 2 1/2 weeks straight, 6 times a week. I have NEVER dedicated that much time to working out. I am open to taking any suggestions from any of my readers so please leave tips in the comments. (Instructions on how to comment are at the bottom of this post).

I am about 7 pounds smaller than when I was at my highest of 229. My goal is to lose 20 pounds by the end of November. I will definitely keep y'all posted and I am documenting it for my Youtube channel as well. I already have 2 workout vlogs posted and I am recording footage this week for my third workout vlog. (Post coming this week.)






I hope I am inspiring you guys by sharing this part of my life. And believe me it is HARD to be this transparent about my struggles, but I want to change and I want to inspire others to change. Just like I want to inspire others to travel! 

Whatever is standing in between you and pure happiness, run it over! Do whatever you have to do to be happy and content with your life. Just remember something important, "God never said the weapons wouldn't form, He promised they wouldn't prosper!" I'm not sure who is the author of that quote but all credit goes to that person.

I'll see you guys next time and pray for me as I pray for you. See you soon!

Peace&Love,
Janisha

Just Do It 2K17.

Hey loves! So, I have to be honest. You may not be able to tell but I am pretty shy. I've overcome it in strides over the years, but I'm still very shy.

Along with being shy, I'm suuuuuper fearful. My fear of the unknown is REAL. So I spend days, weeks, months, and/or years talking myself out of doing things simply because I'm fearful of the outcome. It is a HUGE hindrance to my success and this year I am vowing to change that. 




I'm calling this, Just Do It 2k17.

I have to do better, I have to have faith. There's so much that I have planned this year and I am going to do everything in my power to make it happen. Nothing matters more to me than my success. The days of being my own worst enemy are over. Time to be on #TeamJanisha!

So no more fear. I do understand that this will NOT happen over night, and I hope you guys understand that too. But I'm taking the first step and I'm very proud of myself for it. 

If you are struggling with shyness or fearfulness ple…

2017 Travel List

Hey loves! The last travel list I made was in 2015. I went to 4 cities on that list of 20 between 2015 and 2016. This year I made a list of 10 locations. Maybe one or two repeat cities(that I didn't travel to) on the new list. But I'm excited to share it with you all.



2017 Travel List
1. New Orleans 2. Austin, TX 3. Toronto 4. Florence, Italy 5. France 6. England 7. Dallas-Houston 8. Phoenix 9. Detroit 10. Indianapolis
Like I said, its 10 locations. Both abroad and domestic. Its basically a wish list/goal list.
 I'm really excited about this year. I feel that greater is coming. Greater, trips, greater health, greater coins(yes, please!), just greater everything! I pray that 2017 is much better than 2016. Lord knows we went through a lot as a country, so I can only imagine what people went through individually last year.
Comment below where you wish to travel this year. I hope that you all get to go everywhere your heart desires in 2017. See you next time!
Peace&Love, Janisha

The Struggle is REAL.

Hey loves. I'm sure we have all said that phrase, "The struggle is REAL." And I'm also sure that we've said it hundreds of times. It's the perfect phrase for when you're struggling to do anything. 

For me I mostly use it when my motivation is low. When doing what I'm supposed to do is the LAST thing on my "Want to Do" list. For instance, working out. For the past 3 weeks(with a beak in between) I've been working out. It has been so hard! On top of eating right, and drinking between 110-128 ounces of water a day. And before this, I was drinking maaaaybe 30-50 ounces of water a day, a strong maybe. My eating was so out of pocket. Popeyes, Chick-fil-A, Wendy's, Ledo's Pizza, Chipotle, Qdoba, and probably the worst of all, Nana's home cooking. 

I knew that I needed to change for two reasons, 1.) I was the biggest I had ever been. Pushing 230lbs. 2.) I was UNHAPPY. Depression and anxiety had gotten the best of me. And what I thought…
