The big Question

I follow and love  http://girlmeetsdebt.com/ Shes a great young lady paying off her rather large debts,  on her  blog she left a question that I am choosing to write a blog as my answer.

So my question for all of my blogger friends out there? – If you weren’t a Personal Finance Blogger (or insert ”x” blogger) what kind of “y” blogger would you be? What’s your other passion? And for my readers who don’t blog, would you still read a PF blog if all of a sudden that blogger started writing about other things other than finances?

I simply have a personal blog – where I blog about my life, my thoughts and my passions.

If I could have another blog (or two :p) it’s a relationships and advice blog – where I can give advice talk about my own issues or good happenings and maybe a segment would be interviewing other people and telling their story.

The second blog would be an inspiring fitness blog for all those people who say “they don’t know how” and ” they cant”. I would show them that they could. In grade 11 I lost 60 lbs and kept them off for 3 years. Last year in a mild depressions I gained 50lbs back. In June of 2013 I took initiative and started back on my health pack slowly but surely I have lost (and gained). Now in 2014 I have lost a total of  5lbs this month, solid, and because of my physical job I’m not only losing fat but gaining muscle and am feeling more better about myself than when I was just skinny. I want to motivate people. Give them tips. I have two personal trainers courses under my belt. I have a passion for health and an ice cream weakness (nobody is perfect).

I just don’t feel good enough.

YEP. I know. Stupid eh.

Maybe one day I will feel good enough.

Peace

Tired & OPP

Man I could go for a nap right now but I know I won’t fall asleep, I’ve gone almost all week without napping. OPP (old people problems, I know. And quiet frankly this whole post is going to be about my OPP’s and how I feel, or more specifically how I feel the pains in my body.)

Also I’m only 21. haha OPP’s eh ?

I’m always tired maybe it is because I get up at 5am or something but it sucks.

But I’m never tired enough to nap.

Also my body is always physically tired too, like sore knees and back, as well as my shoulders.

Back in “russet time” I would just down Advil like no other. As if it was candy. But I rarely take Advil now because I’m trying to improve my health by avoiding unnecessary things and Advil in my opinion aren’t that necessary.

I think for January I have only consumed two, and that was because I had the flu and a migraine that wouldn’t let me get out of bed – but I had to go work.

(another post to follow on how I am making changes to be healthier,  eco-friendlier and organic and about my job that I am thoroughly enjoy)

BUT I have noticed since I’ve been changing around my workout plan (including more leg workouts like Squats, sumo squats and lunges) my legs are stronger and therefore less sore, but it is overall still hard on my knees. Like the inner of my knee joint.

I tried researching different things I could do and all of them recommend knee pads but honestly there has to be other ways.  Some natural path remedies? oils ? Massages ?

Do you know of any ways that can help stop joint pain in the knee due to kneeling (work)?

My back hurts from the futon I’m sleeping on (Couch / bed) and my shoulder hurts from that too as well, also my sports bras – I only wear them to work and for working-out but I know they’re miss sized. It’s annoying as fuck, I need new ones, but my budget at the moment won’t permit it. So I have to stick it out fora little while longer and budget them in one day. 

But anyways I’m sticking out the aches and pains in order to be healthier and pill free and debt free 🙂

What changes / sacrifices have you made in order to be healthier ?

Does your budget not allow you to buy things at the moment ?

Are you consumed by your debt ?

Do you like your job ? What is your job ?

Peace
