Getting back on track: 21 Day Back to Basics Challenge

Morning dolls,

Sometimes the hardest thing to do is also the most simple. For example, when you feel stuck, uninspired or sad most often the cure is to JUST MOVE! Simply getting up to take a walk, call a friend or in my case write a blog post can be the hardest thing to do when you are in a funky place. While not the easiest thing to do the BEST thing to do is to...JUST MOVE.

These last few months I found myself wandering aimlessly, confused about my direction in life, questioning my purpose. We've all been there I know I'm not the only one ya'll! Life has it's ups and downs and it's all part of the process to get us to that magical place called 'our Destiny'. Luckily I've had much more ups then downs and I know no matter what the BIG guy upstairs has my back! #teamJesus

However, I still need to do my part on this end. No one can change your life but you. It starts from within. No matter how many friends or family I've had encouraging me or trying to pull me out of my slump, I wasn't going to budge until I, Me, Naja, aka Naja Diamond, Yours Truly was READY to do so. How does that old saying go.....you can lead a horse to water but you can't make them drink. So so true. You have to want it for YOU. Period.

With everything in disarray, and I do mean EVERYTHING! Not being confident about my style, or my body, hell my health overall is a damn mess with my skin breaking out and all (Coca-Cola will do that to you :-/). I was too busy complaining about the things I didn't like rather than doing something about it. Something had to change! If you want different results, you have to change the ingredients. (HELLO, Joyce Meyers reference! lol)

So I decided to wipe the slate clean. Go back to the drawing board. Clear the noise and the clutter of what things SHOULD look like or SHOULD be and just go back to the basics. Keep it simple. Starting today I'm starting a 21 day 'Back to Basics' challenge. Nothing crazy or complicated. It is literally just to help me, get up and get going. I'm starting with 21 days because I know me, it won't be long before I'm trying to add too much to my plate but taking this time to rebuild my foundation is important and if I need to make it a 30 or 60 day challenge to get that foundation back strong than that is fine too.

About the challenge: 
For 21 days my plan is to...
1. Establish and stick to a consistent morning routine. A good morning routine really sets the pace for a great and productive day. Right now my routine is a disaster!
2. Eat healthy. Not perfect but damn I think I forgot what a vegetable looks like I haven't had one in so long. Eeeekk, I wish I was kidding. SMH
3. Work out. Everyday. I'm so out of shape it's shameful. Working out needs to be a part of my life again. Even if it's yoga or some at home squats and walk around the block. Just MOVE!
4. Do what you love or spend everyday actively figuring out what that is.

So that's it. Basic I know and there are other goals I have but I know sticking to these main points everything else will just fall into place.

Follow along if you like and let's report back in 21 days to see how it's going? What are some things you want to change in your life, what steps are you taking to accomplish them? I want to know in the comments!

Thanks for stopping by as always your support is soooo appreciated!!

  1. Hello!
    I just stumbled on your blog via Pinterest as I was looking for some work outfits inspiration.I can completely relate to this post on all the points you mentioned and want to encourage you to stay strong and continue on your path! It seems like you have found your path and passion. Even though life has some down sides, continue to do what you are doing. Your voice is so important, even if no one comments, know that people are reading your blog. May the Lord bless you and keep you strong as you continue on this journey called life.
