An Ambassador of Life

In my latest blog post I wrote about some "targets" that I wanted to hit.  One of them being that of becoming a personal trainer.  At this time of my life I do not want that for myself any longer.  As I wrote that last night, I was thinking of what I wanted and some new goals for my future.  One of them being that I would like to become an Ambassador of Life.  Yes, I am self proclaiming that I Trina Campagnaro is an Ambassador of Life.(And yes, I'm still a Chocoholic.  But I'm happy to say I have been sugar free this week so far)

My role as Ambassador would be to live my life as I do on my journey to a Healthier Version of Me.  That means eating right and being active with exercise, being healthy and strong.  I will continue learning new things about a variety of subjects I am interested in, and I will share it with you as I go.  I have many different interests and hobbies that I already do.  I believe I have mentioned some of them in past blog posts.  Such as I sew, paint, garden, bake, cook, and I am a silversmith.  I will inspire others with living a life that I love.  Even with its UPS and DOWNS.  Oh...and one other thing that I do right now...I am a chicken farmer.  A chicken farmer of only 3 chickens right now but we are looking at getting 3 more in March.                                                                                    
                  Our chicken run...                                       ...and our chickens

The above pictures were taken in the Spring of last year 2017.  The chickens started laying eggs in August of that same year.  They are so funny and relaxing to be around.  Right now, they are tucked safely in that same chicken run, only we have winterized for the cold, snowy winter months.  There's nothing like fresh eggs for breakfast or for any other meal for that matter.  More news about the chickens in future posts, as they too have a lot to do with my journey.

I feel like I have SO much catching up to do, but I can't fit everything I want to tell you in one post.  And I will not let stress get the better of me again, so I will be taking this blogging slow and steady.  But I promise you it will not be a year and a half before I write again.  It might not be everyday as I have A LOT to do now, and I will enjoy every minute of it.

Something that is more fitness of the things that I find inspiration in, are songs.  This morning I made a quick play list for my morning spin.  It included a song by Madonna.  As my legs were going around and the sweat started to build on my forehead, I listened to the words she was singing...

"Say what you like, do what you feel
You know exactly who you are
The time is right now
You got to decide
Stand in the back or be the star"

Well I choose to be the star.  

The song is Beat Goes On.  

Through the rough patches of my journey I knew what I had to do to get back on track, but I didn't listen to myself.  I was just sitting there like some silly girl, just as this song starts.  "If you wait too long you'll be too late"...yes, I could be too late to grow old with my family.  I knew that if I kept up the unhealthy ways it would not be good for me or my family.  So as the chorus goes...

"(So get down, beep beep, gotta get up outta your seat)
Get up, little girl
(Get down, beep beep, gotta get up outta your seat)
It's time, your world
(Get down, beep beep, gotta get up outta your seat)
Your life, your choice
(Get down, beep beep, gotta get up outta your seat)
It's time, live it up"

"On and on, on the beat goes..."

My heart beat!  That is what beat I want to go on and on...

So whether you are a Madonna fan or not, these words I found very inspirational to me today.  And the song that speaks for itself...Wonder Woman.  Yes, it is the song from the original Wonder Woman series.  Find the songs that inspire you and feel free to share them in the comments of my blog.  Who knows...someone else might find inspiration in them too.

Well it's late now and I must get to bed now.  

I promise I will get to added some new recipes and workouts and more pictures.

Until then...

Stay Strong!
