Busier and Busier ..

Summer Busyyyynesssss!

Hello readers and bloggers, many of you might have noticed my lack of communication, consistency, normality, time management, etc and whatever else that might show through my writings — I apologize because many of you have continued to support my blog(s) and website and are waiting for me to do the same >.< which is to expected and should be the way it is. I could make ALL the excuses in the world for the lack of attention I have given my followers for the past 6 months or so, but the truth remains that I have been hectic and this is good news because as a personal trainer, I have so many more clients/fitness consultations I am doing each week & I have had time to meet and make new friendships in the real world, spend time with my loved ones and use my time to catch up on much needed sleep (due to working two jobs — one being third shift). I make just enough time to blog and then I immediately log off without showing much support to any of you and that’s not right nor intentional but it seems to happen often enough where finally I feel the need to apologize and find a solution to such an issue. Today I will use some of this day to catch up on cleaning, researching time management options that will benefit me, catching up on blogging and ordering items for my powerlifting meet, and shopping for an event I will be going to June 14th — June 16th (out of town) and whatever else I can think of that seems to be put on the backburner every week (including all of you) but that will have to wait for a little while longer as I need to do things by priority so that I stay in order and keep things flowing or else, I might lose my mind! 😦 

In the coming weeks, I will have a much better plan when it comes to blogging and showing my support to all of those who do the same for me daily & to all the new bloggers as well. I just need to go over the plan on paper and make some adjustments (as needed) because things won’t always go as planned — that’s life. When I do come up with this plan today, it will begin to show gradually & hopefully it will be long term. I wanted to make blogging/writing full time & I still in fact have that goal, but it will take me working harder as a personal trainer so that I don’t need a second job & don’t need to consume so much of time sleeping to make up for the lack of sleep I don’t get during the week sometimes. Everything that is meant to happen, will happen in due time. If any of this fails to show my gratitude, forgive me, I know everyone has a busy schedule and this might not be a great excuse but it is my reasoning and the truth. Trust me, when I tell you, I plan on making up for this & giving more time to blogging, and writing and showing my support as well — it won’t happen overnight , but it will come slowly. There used to be a time I could blog 2-3 times a day and still manage to support all the writers (take me back to that time) but now I get lucky if I find the energy to blog once a day without falling asleep on the computer or being distracted by outside noises. 

I hope we talk soon, and thank for you all the continued support once more. If any of you follow me on social media — I have been slow on the trigger in posting regularly but I do still post on IG, FB and Twitter & check my emails regularly as well. Blogging is my life, really it brings me peace and gives me inspiration through writing and reading other people’s creations, I yearn for it when I haven’t been consistent, I just need to plan my days out more accordingly and keep myself in order and make sure to spend my time wisely so that I don’t overwhelm myself too quickly and give up my passions. What’s good for the soul should never die.

365 Days of Self Discovery: Your Dreams/Wishes/Hopes/Future

4.24.19

Day 14

What is your vision for the future? How will you get there?

  • Honestly, sometimes my vision for my future seems more like a blurry rather than a pretty picture in my mind. I know overall I want to be successful but in what ways? Well for beginners I want to see myself as a well established professional and entrepreneur, a female that inspires people, educates people, motivates people, and transforms people in a positive way (body & mind). In order to make this happen, I need a PLAN OF ACTION, something that will be my guide & steps to get where I want to be. I will need to build my social circle with like-minded individuals and those who can help build me, support me and keep me on track with my goals. Finally, I will need to pursue my goals and make stuff happen, not just talk and dream about it but actually make stuff happen in order to see things evolve. In order to achieve all of this, I will need tons of discipline, determination, willpower, self confidence, and a positive mindset with tons of focus. This will have to be a priority instead of a second thought. 

Business Keeps Me Busy

Neglecting to write in my blog is like neglecting to eat for me, I get so caught up with my business & I am at the gym all day; training myself & training clients/giving consultations & then having to stack that on top of my second job (third shift) — while also juggling my website & trying to make that soar. I haven’t yet touched podcasting (I will) because I want to do it — it excites me. I haven’t been blogging on the website as often as I had hoped either / another draw back since having more clients at the gym ( I love being a personal trainer) I do, but Google wasn’t lying when it said this profession is around the clock once you gain clientale and make a name for yourself — your schedule is never the same & while I do make my own schedule each week (sometimes the club director assigns clients to me without my knowledge of having an appointment until I look at my calendar) being at the gym is like my home away from home; basically I sleep, eat and work there & I love it — but I don’t want to get burnt out loving what I do. This weekend, I took time away to focus on catching up on sleep and meal prepping and spending time with loved ones & friends (What’s a social life?) LOL. 

So, in the mist of all this rambling, I am basically trying to apologize for the later than late responses & not following some of you newer readers of my blog(s) because honestly, you deserve my attention just as much as I would like yours,  but realistically, we all have a life to live and while I would love to be full time blogger with a higher paying income from it, it’s not happening and so sometimes it doesn’t become top priority over my other obligations. Doesn’t mean I don’t love doing it, I do it because I do love it & because it will one day make a good income & be something people enjoy reading and commenting on again. It probably doesn’t help I don’t share it on my social media platforms (besides #Twitter) anymore due to me being lazy & because since starting this self discovery phase of this blog — I don’t feel as though it touches on fitness/health the way it used to for the time being & that’s okay but I don’ t want people to be let down. When this self discovery phase is over, I will hop back into a fitness/health, body positive , knowledgeable, and worthy topics so that people get excited again and have something to talk about once more. I plan on catching up with blogging this weekend and making it once again a priority (small steps forward) so I will begin with this post — but be ready for more from me. Also, if you don’t catch me on here, I am always on Instagram usually & Twitter and Facebook, so make sure to follow those social platforms to keep up with my life & fun times, hard times & goofy times. 

For all those who have left comments on my older post, have liked, followed or share my post, thank you for supporting my passion to write & my semi-lame post with a splash of “just interesting enough” — I promise my topics will glow once again, we just have to overcome the stagnant self discovery post for a while ( just maybe I will make a fitness/health post while doing this self discovery challenge) but anytime I blog on the personal website, I will share the link with all of you, so you don’t miss out on my personal training fun. Make sure to follow me on social media! I am much more fun on IG LOL.

P.S Do you enjoy my self discovery post? Be honest, I won’t cry – might judge you LOL jk.

If any of you are creative bees and can answer my question: is it cheaper to have t-shirt designs made on your own or to have them done professionally, let me know. I want my brand to shine & I need to make some products (Tshirts/hats/hoodies etc ) and even wanting to create journals for those to track sleep, diet and eating habits. I want to keep things interactive with & I even want to eventually make a Facebook group where people come together & share their progress, goals, etc with the rest of the community. I want to make shit happen, so it will happen, just will be in small steps (hopefully before I hit 30 years old) because Idk if I will have the same motivation later in life. 

Second question of the day, would it be how can I make my blog more interactive for my readers and fellow bloggers.. I know many of you have tons of traffic with comments and likes, etc *& once a upon a time I thought I was killing it, but now, eh. So share your secretes, tell me what has worked for you as a blogger to bring in more traffic — I will use these for my website as well. Gimme all your secrets so I can conquer the world 😀

BTW, guest posting for me is a thing, so if that’s something that interest you, ,let me know & if you know anything about podcast/creating products/website design, making income from blogging, etc.. share your secrets 😀

BeConfidentFit Blog post #3

Hey everyone, I wanted to share my blog post I made on my personal training website, hopefully all of you enjoy it, feel free to leave comments and feedback! and also share my post, I love when others I haven’t reached out to share my post because everything I write on the website will be useful information at some point and not to mention very interactive! 

Today’s topic was about “Choosing a personal trainer” , how to go about doing so and the things that are important to consider. I figured as a personal trainer, I wanted to help give people insight on what to look for and why I believe certain aspects are more important than others.

Follow & make sure to share my blog post! Choosing a personal trainer to meet your needs

365 Days of Self Discovery: Feelings & Emotions

Day 4

What is causing you stress right now?

  • Having to spend my Sunday cleaning & reorganizing my room, having to play catch up on work paperwork & blog content and try to fit in meal prepping before work later tonight. Also, having to possibly leave the house to get supplies (if need be) when I rather stay in the house today and relax. Worrying about getting my life/business in order and focusing my attention on priorities so that I can be organized. I normally don’t mind organizing and cleaning my room or house but in cases when I have a lot on my plate before the new week & many things I want to have accomplished before Monday — it can be quite stressful to say the least. 

Is anything stressing you out right now? if not, you are lucky my friend LOL

Personal Training Website Reveal — Happy New Year’s!

Business Frame of Mind 

My website reveal — Hopefully everyone enjoys the set up, I tried to make it user friendly & easy to navigate. You will notice not all of the buttons have direct sites — (podcast, products, updates, etc) because I haven’t yet started those things; but they will be started this year. Make sure to read my blog post — it will go over some fun things to expect from this website & from me as far as delivering my best foot forward in training and building this website to meet expectations. I appreciate all of the support & patience from many of you who were eager to see what this website is all about, again it will continue to be under construction due to things I have yet to unleash & currently working towards — so bare with me and always feel free to leave feedback.

P.S I will constantly post to my FB business page as well as my fitness/health blog site whenever I add things to the business website — it will also be posted on my other social media platforms. Thank you & welcome.
