My Journey

Hello. I'm Gini. Welcome to my page.



.Dear Naysayers and those who have no idea of the struggles I go through,

No I don't spend too much time tracking my water and nutrition, considering what food I'm going to eat, reading the nutrition labels at the market, portioning out my food with a digital kitchen scale and measuring spoons, because I want to become the healthiest I can be more than I wanted to stay the same.

I am not the food ...
Hello. I'm Gini. Welcome to my page.



.Dear Naysayers and those who have no idea of the struggles I go through,

No I don't spend too much time tracking my water and nutrition, considering what food I'm going to eat, reading the nutrition labels at the market, portioning out my food with a digital kitchen scale and measuring spoons, because I want to become the healthiest I can be more than I wanted to stay the same.

I am not the food police. Believe me, I do not give one thought about what you're eating or how much. I am really focused on myself. No, that behavior doesn't make me selfish or self-absorbed. It's exactly the opposite. It's self-care and self-love. I finally got the fact that I'm absolutely, positively worth the time and effort and I'm never going to forget that again. That's okay, you don't have to understand or get it.

I do what it takes every day until it becomes second nature. I am getting there. I am close. What about you? Is your health important enough that you won't let anything get in your way until you achieve your goal? - Cheryl_Anne

"Above all else, do NOT quit! The universe always bows to persistence.
The empowering approach is to see your physical challenges as assets, because overcoming obstacles forces you to develop discipline, determination and character.
These traits will carry over to other areas of your life and make you a stronger person.”
-Tom Venuto

Courage doesn't always roar.
Sometimes courage is the quiet voice
at the end of the day, saying,
"I will try again tomorrow."
