Happy 5th Blog Day!!

candles

First of all WOW can not believe that Planet Stylisoulstar is 5 years young, I know I will probably say that every time she gets a year older but it is absolute madness!!

I am so happy to be sitting here writing this blog day post, because it proves that I can actually achieve great things and it documents my progress in life on a whole. The transition from five years ago till now is so amazing, my life has changed dramatically and so have I. Not only do I think, feel and LOOK different the things I want in life have also changed. No matter what my blog has always given me the freedom to be myself and share the topics I feel to.

I appreciate the love and support over the years from anyone who follows,reads, asks how it’s going or kicked me to post more..

PLANET STYLISOULSTAR is my world and everything in it so I will continue to spread the positive vibes and of course good food πŸ™‚

In celebration of this 5 years I will be giving Planet Stylisoulstar the make over she deserves I gave myself a big one so its only right she gets one too.

So keep your eyes open for new page layout and logo πŸ™‚

Until then I will Β keep doing my THANG!!

Body Transformation Update 2014!!

before and after

 

 

Okay lets get straight to it this ISH is crazy I am not even going to lie!!!

I don’t even know where to begin this picture above provokes all types of thoughts and feelings.

Being on the bigger side for my teenage years and most of my twenties I wouldn’t say was the worst thing ever but it did cause obstacles for me. I have always had confidence and known how to present myself no problem, but being in a body you’re not 100% happy with isn’t good. Hiding you arms, covering your legs and dreading wearing a bikini in summer is not the way to be living life. Feeling like you can’t wear revealing clothing if you chose to and feel sexy or that your body wouldn’t be appealing to a man.When you live life full of boundaries and limitations you stop yourself from experiencing to your full potential.

When I look at that picture of me on the beach in my bikini in Jamaica I find it very hard to believe what my eyes are seeing. At the time I remember feeling pretty alright in my bikini that day and although I did attract a man lol, point being is that I know I wasn’t 100% happy with what I saw. It is a very emotional thing to look at a picture of yourself firstly not recognize that person and secondly just be in complete shock. I always knew I was a bigger lady but at the time I never saw myself how Β see myself now looking back. Its like someone went and photo shopped all of my pictures!!

oct before and after

So January 2015 will mark two years since I first started my healthier and fitter lifestyle. I not only decided to change the way I looked at food, treated my body, but also the way I thought mentally a long with my approach to life. Β I wanted to be more open, laid back and inspirational it was my mission to achieve succeed and be able to share my experiences. I am no where near finished or done in my journey but I am damn sure proud of myself for how far I have come.

I am just an example of whatever you want it is yours for the taking, take both hands and grab it just do NOT let go!!!

Till next time keep it moving!!

Your Time is NOW!!

Hey y’all its that time of year where everyone is scurrying around buying the whole high street like the shops will never open again. It is also the time of year where people are about to stuff their faces and say they will work it off in the new year. It is also the time of year where the “2014 is my year” statements are made (how so..did you buy it?). Also the I am going to join the gym 1st January and back to the sofa on 1st February situation is about to happen!!

Now I am no way perfect or here to preach but what I am here to do is point out a few thangs. I won’t lie I have been subject to the new years resolutions crap but that was way back when….

Basically you are alive and living NOW so why not try to do something NOW, everyday you wake up you have the chance to change the game tomorrow is a brand new day!

If 2013 wasn’t a very good year for you then why would you wait till 2014 to make it better? End the year on a good note and say you know what 2013 wasn’t what I had hoped but I can learnt from from it and use it. Go into a new day with a positive head don’t put off your happiness till another time!

We are in no way perfect but how do we become better if you never make that change!!
