Stepping stones to a happy soul

One who inspires me.

I just wanted to share this video because, in sum, this woman speaks the truth. Well, at least in my opinion. Her name is Jarmaine and she is one of the people I follow for inspiration and motivation to keep a healthy lifestyle.

I relate to her because she has a body type similar to mine, and she reassures me that being healthy and fit does NOT have to equal a Victoria’s Secret or a bikini competitor’s body. She is all about keeping that balance of being able to enjoy food she loves, yet still having self-control and staying motivated to work out and eat healthy. This is something I personally still have to improve on, but as she mentions in a recent video, Skinny Obsession, it took her several years of her fitness journey so that the lifestyle is actually a part of her. I’ve learned that it’s a long and tedious journey, but as long as you don’t give up, there will be improvement, no matter how small.

As a bonus, she also loves makeup (like myself) and is hilarious in her videos so she’s never a bore! I hope this helps some of you, because it knocked some sense back into me! As I mentioned in my first post, I believe that it is so important to have a friend or someone you look up to for inspiration to keep yourself motivated in a positive way. You won’t have to go through your journey alone.
