It has been way too long since I last sat down to write. This is hazardous to me because this is the time when I am able to reflect on my journey. Things have been a bit rough lately, and I should have been dedicating more focus to my health so that it could sustain me through the busyness of life.
It's interesting to note that I have kept to my workout streak. I think it is because I am motivated by the number I see written on the chalkboard everyday. It's slowly climbing (when I complete my ST today, I will be able to change it to 33!), and I cannot imagine having to erase it and start back at one again.
I think this is what I need for my diet which is naturally unhealthy due to so many years of bad habits. This past week saw a celebration for a friend's 61st birthday, another friend turned 93 years old the next day, and a younger friend threw a small graduation gathering for the completion of his degree. Needless to say, yesterday I was at home with the rainy weather so I took advantage of the alone time to detox from the sugar and food overload from last week.
What I have decided that I need is a motivational cue. The streak for my workout is so great at keeping me on par. There must be something similar in terms of food choices. I may not streak with a number somewhere, but there must be a goal that I look at everyday to remind myself to make healthier decisions before grabbing whatever seems "tasty" at the moment.
May the brainstorming begin!
