YouTube Channel

I started a YouTube Channel. You can find me at My Change For A Ten Rose Bruno Bailey. My channel is completely new and I am a novice. I plan to upload at least three videos a week, more when I get more comfortable. Weigh in day is Monday. Last Monday I weighed in at 189 lbs. I’m planning to stop the yo yo cycle and be more consistent. I’m using my iPhone to film so bear with me as I learn this new media.

I also stated on my video last week I’m going to do all things in gratitude. Sometimes it’s hard when my job burns me out. I will say this though, and this is where the gratitude part comes in; I work with kind people and that makes all the difference. My job is flexible so even though waitressing (again) can be stressful, I move forward even on the tough days in gratitude.

There are some personal decisions we need to make in the next few weeks regarding a possible move. I never have enjoyed being in limbo. I am just trying to let it be what it will be and not worry at the moment. Stre

LABOR DAY GRATITUDE

Happy Labor Day to all. It’s Labor Day and I’m laboring, but no complaints here. We must show gratitude for all our moments in life. I’m working on that one on this holiday weekend, to be grateful for where I am as I work toward where I’m going. If you approach all of your moments with others in kindness, you will receive kindness in return. It makes “laboring” on a holiday dedicated to those “laboring” much more enjoyable. 

I love the line from Bryan Adams song Summer of 69

Ain’t no use in complaining, when you got a job to do.

I have many jobs to do as I wear many hats. As I reintroduce myself to working on my weight loss and fitness goals I’m learning about the fine art of balance. I am vegan because for me it’s the ethical way to live my authentic life. I believe eating Whole Foods plant based is very healthy. Recently I decided to cut out sodium and oils. I am very active and my job keeps me moving. I realized at work my sodium levels must have been low, I felt like I would pass out.  A co-worker/friend suggested I was dehydrated and should eat saltines. It made me feel so much better and it was a lesson in overdoing a good thing.

For someone with an eating disorder past, removing so many foods at once causes issues. I will monitor my sodium and oils but not be too obsessive about it. I also will indulge in the occasional vegan treat. I believe balance is the key for me going forward. I got caught up with much needed rest and woke up ready to tackle the evening shift with the help of coffee. I will never abandon my one cup of coffee each day. Coffee is life.

Balance and Gratitude is my mantra this week. 

Love and light

DO WHAT YOU LOVE

Depression, I think I was depressed for a while. I’m trying to understand the idea of depression. I’m such a happy go lucky person, for me to be depressed is unheard of. The loss of my Mom, leaving my beloved Los Angeles and losing our cat; among other things left me with this void. It’s not something anyone can see, it’s like a numbness. In Los Angeles I was so alive, like life on steroids. Things here in Texas are much slower and with all of what happened I felt my vibration at an all time low. Time to choose to change and raise my vibration.

Recognizing it is the first step. Making goals again and being impeccable with my word is the second step. I am here, posting every single day. My computer crashed, but this time I make no excuses and I make it happen with my phone. I keep a food journal every single day. I can feel already changes in my body. I’m so happy to be back, this is just the beginning. I’m laying the basic groundwork for bigger goals. 

Do what you love, do all things with love. I treat others with love, I should do so with myself. That means never giving up and making the commitment to stick to starting over.

What do I love? I love to write so I keep writing and submitting my work. I want to be a healthy weight loss success story again, and I want to help others. I’m interested in motivational speaking sometime in the future.

After being in the Richard Simmons video and taking his classes, I too want to teach classes. I’m a former dancer and I love dance as much as I love writing. My husband James paid for me to get my American Council of Exercise group exercise certification. With all that has happened I missed my exam, and I was so disappointed in myself. I hit an all time low with that one. 

There’s always light at the end of the tunnel. I was told I still have one year to take my exam. Do what you love. That’s my motivation for me going forward. Round two is underway and going strong. 

It’s time to study. Do all things with love, for yourself and for others. 

So much love and light.

Namaste’
