The Journey Begins (Again)
Every new day is another chance to change your life✨
I have been struggling with how I feel about my body and weight for as long as I can remember. I tired diets, I tried apps, and at the end of the day the problem and my biggest obstacle is always just me. So recently I realized that I have to change my mindset moving forward.
Being happy and confident, and believing in yourself and what you are capable of is by far the most important part of self care and truly being the best version of yourself. If you are looking to become a more active, fit and healthy you, the most important thing you need to do before anything else is to love who you are already. I know this sounds extremely cliche, but it’s 100% necessary. The next stages of a lifestyle change shouldn't feel like a struggle (as it has for me for years and years). It should be surrounded by a cloud of positivity and optimism.
Looking back at the few times I was able to really hit a positive transformation, they all grew from a place of happiness. Gallivanting around the world and immersing myself in new people and places helped take my mind off of hating how I looked and concentrating on how much I adored the person I was becoming. I know now it is time to find that person again.
Right now, there are so many reasons to be happy. I say it to myself and my family that I have everything I want except for 2 things: the body I want and to move out. I am so close to reaching the latter, and the first 'problem' is something that I have 100% control over.
1. I have the best man I could ever have hoped for.
2. I have my dream job with my dream boss
3. I am loved by the best bernedoodle in all the land
4. I have an amazing group of friends that I wouldn't change for anything.
It's time to address the problem. It's time for me to realize that being tired is temporary. Being lazy is a habit I have to break. I broke promises to myself and I continue to break promises to myself--that changes now. I cannot expect other people to trust me if I cannot trust myself.
So I am going to make these vows over again:
I read the book The Miracle Morning by Hal Elrod. I want my level 10 life. I want to feel lighter and happier.
So here is my commitment:
I will wake up at 6:30am every day.
I will meditate for 10 minutes every morning.
I will say daily affirmations for 2 minutes.
I will add to my level 10 vision board for 10 minutes.
I will workout for at least 30 min every morning (walking, running, etc;)
I will read for 20 minutes (self help & fiction)
I will journal (or blog) for 20 minutes.
I will lift weights at 2-3 times per week.
I will be more positive.
Here's to making changes and reaching my goals now and forever going forward. *
