Hey guys! I’ve known I’ve been MIA these past couple of weeks. I’ve just had so many opportunities being presented to me and also had a belated birthday trip to NYC! I want to let you guys know what has been happening and thank you for your patience with me. I’m super excited to have you all follow along my new adventures and next week, I’ll be posting about another trip featuring the City of Love so stay tuned. ❤️
Here we go:
First, I have partnered with DIFF Eyewear to become a brand ambassador for them. One of the reason I was so excited about this partnership is because what DIFF Eyewear stands for. They truly are a company that is out to make a difference in the world. This year only, they have donated to Save the Children, The JJ Watt Foundation, The Salvation Army, Best Friends Animal Society, 147 Million Orphans and SO much other charities. They are out to change the world and help others in any way they can. I literally own about 7 pairs of their stylish sunglasses and boy do they last! I’ve been on cruises, trips, beaches, etc. with them and they never rust and always make a statement. I’m so proud and excited to be representing a brand with that much strive to change the world and be a part of that change. Plus, you never have to feel bad about buying a pair because I’ll have a link (Just click on DIFF Eyewear) to save you $10 but with every pair bought DIFF Eyewear gives a pair of reading glasses to someone in need. They are literally not only changing the world of sunglasses but also becoming a company that truly cares about the world and everyone in it. Go get yourself a pair and be a part of such an incredible movement.
PS: If you have any questions about the style and fit of some glasses just comment underneath, ask on social media or send me an email and I’ll be glad to help you find the best pair for you.
Second, in my last post was about my partnership with Beachbody. I’ve been working hard to go through the training to help others, motivate others, but also have been using their products. Their Shakelogy is amazing, literally I have it every day either for breakfast or dinner after my workouts. This November, I’ll be partnering up with my mentor to put on a November Gratitude challenge. We want to just keep ourselves motivated and also its good to slowly work on changing your diet during this time. Plus, with Thanksgiving coming up, what better challenge could there be then to be grateful for what we have in our own lives?!?!?! If you want to join, send me an email to KarenGiuliana.email@example.com. I’ll be doing the 21-day fix throughout this challenge, but there are so many other options. For example, we have a clean week, which is only for a week to help you detox those bad foods, even harder workouts like Insanity, for the people who truly want to go harder, or maybe you’ve just been looking to add a new super nutrient shake to your diet to help give you healthy energy, help reduce those junk food cravings, and help support your digestion and lose weight. If any of this sounds like you, send me an email or connect through social media. Beachbody has something for you, I know it.
It’s all about consistency with your diet and workouts. Working out isn’t usually my issue, I practically work out 5-6 times a week. Dieting is my issue. This is the part I struggle with the most. I’m always on the go that I find it so hard to actually take a moment and prep my meals to stay on track. Since, I’m a huge football fan I found that during Sunday Night Football its always the best time for me to prep my meals and treat myself a little while enjoying the game. So Netflix your favorite show and just cook during it, make yourself a healthy treat or have a cup of wine. Not only is it relaxing, but you’re preparing your meals to help you on your journey. It’s also super hard to go out with friends and still be healthy with your choices. I always find it easier to look at the menu of the restaurant prior to arriving. Your friends will understand your desire to eat clean and who knows you might just convince them to think twice about their dinner choice and try out a new restaurant?!
Finally, I have been accepted into the Miss Florida USA pageant! I literally applied thinking there’s no way I would even get in! I’ve never done a pageant before, I’m not tall enough, and so many other thoughts were going through my head. It was such a whirlwind of emotions; I was in New York City at the time I got the email and couldn’t think of better people to celebrate with. However, I was still a bit nervous and scared to send in my confirmation of competing. But then I figured if the producers of Miss Florida USA thought I was worth the shot, why shouldn’t I? I changed my mindset. I started to not listen to the doubt in my own mind and to just go with it. I’m in Miss Florida USA! I’ll be competing on stage in less than two months to go after that title! I’ll get the chance to share my story and dreams. This can change a lot of things for me. With this new mentality, I’ve started to be stricter on what I consume, how much I work out, how hard I work on my #roadtothecrown and its only been three weeks since I found out but I’ve already started to see a change in myself. I found a new sense of strength and encouragement in myself that I did not have before. I’ve started to believe in myself like I never had before. I’ve been trying to raise money to help cover some of the expenses along with competing in Miss Florida USA. I’ve started a GoFundMe campaign to help and if you would like help contribute just click the Miss Florida USA link. Literally any amount goes such a long way and its truly appreciate to the highest degree. One the most amazing things about this pageant is Miss Florida USA is fully changing to show young girls and woman to be a #GirlBoss. They want the woman to represent strength, confidence, empowerment, motivation, independence, etc. I couldn’t be more excited to share my platform to other people and to meet other amazing woman as well. I’m currently working nonstop to get healthier (for myself), stronger, and represent myself and my city of Royal Palm in the best light possible. Wish me luck and I’ll be showing everyone a glimpse into the life of prepping for the pageant.
Phewwww! So many things, in so little time! Honestly, I couldn’t be more grateful and blessed though. I want to show others that you truly can do anything you set your mind too. Just believe in yourself and the sky is the limit! You can do so much to help others and help yourself, by just have the faith and courage to go for it. Trust me, I’m scared! I’m scared of failing, not being good enough. I’m scared to not represent Diff Eyewear to their standards, to fail in inspiring others to get a healthier lifestyle for themselves, and of course not being myself in the Miss Florida USA pageant and truly show what I bring to the table. But if I don’t take these risks or chances, how will I ever know if I could obtain them? Sometimes you just gotta take that leap of faith and run with it. If you’re debating about doing something similar, let me know, I’d love to connect and hope you go for your goals, dreams, and ambitions. It’s like Nike always said, “Just do it!” Because if you fail, you’ll always have an incredible experience and the memories that come from those experiences. Plus you’ll be able to say I did it and have an extra ounce of courage for next time! We all have one life and I, for one, believe on spending it by taking chances, by buying that plane ticket, competing on a grand stage, helping others and changing the world.
