Ask Sam: 90 Days to an Improved You Week #2

Ask Sam: 90 Days to an Improved You Week #2

Trying to improve yourself in every area of your life at he same time is challenging. Often when you start to clean up one area, it leads you to clean up another and another and so on. In week one of my Xerveo coffee challenge I lost about 2.5-3 lbs depending on which scale I was using and at what point in the day I weighed myself. I was so proud of myself as it gave me a great confidence booster to take with me into fashion week and start filming my new web series. Sometimes when our focus shifts to take on area another area suffers. I am sad to report that for week #2 I did not lose any weight. In fact, there were a couple of days when the scale went up by 2 lbs. I’ll admit I had my close-to-tears freak out moments, but then I remember hormones and cycles can deliver a not so true reflection of what is really happening.

Going into week three the scale is back at 136.5. I feel confident that Week #3 will yield better numbers so I further progress. The key is to not give up. This is 90 Days, not Two Weeks. Its about the journey that will continue well after this series of articles is concluded.

The Good News Recap:

Professionally, I completed filming my role in a short film, Dante’s LOG. Enjoyed reporting on Fashion Week from the front rows at shows. Starting filming a new project and with the help of my fabulous assistant Angelica, fixed a lot of issues. I did a lot of streamlining of operations. I love cleaning out clutter of all sorts! Made great strides in designing a bit of a revamp. Have been documenting the year long revamp of my base of operations, encouraged that the end is near and the results are turning out beautifully.

Personally, saw a double rainbow while in Florida. Had a “Sex and the City” moment, along with quality time, business lunch with my girlfriends after one of the shows. Celebrated a fabulous Valentines Day and was extra spoiled and adored Came to some great personal insight. No longer willing to allow toxic people to drain me. Reaffirmed I want to enjoy my life.

Fitness, lost three Pounds. Tracked almost all of what I ate. Bought leg warmers and ballet shoes and did several sessions with the NYC Ballets YouTube workout. Did 5 workouts with the 7 minute workout app “Carrot.” Did several sessions on the elliptical. Made some appointments to address some injuries that are challenging my fitness goals. Had  Xerveo coffee every day and I’m feeling optimistic by my progress. I have had #GGS almost every day (for the last 11 months) feel amazing and now really dislike when I can’t have it, it’s just not the same day without it. I’ve also been eating Kimberly Beauty Detox life style and feeling great. Although I’m feeling tired from all the goings on and I need a day of rest, I am certain the combination of all these things combined has given me the energy to get through this very hectic time.

Week #3 I hope you will read my further progress in all directions and it encourages you to start your own journey.
