Continuing the journey
Wednesday, December 11, 2013
So I thought about the whole starting over thing. I talked it over with my new, fabulous therapist and we decided that the whole "starting over" thing was crap. You are never really starting over. You don't really ever begin a journey other than when you are born. You just decide to live your life a little differently. Getting all philosophical on ya huh? So my journey may have sidetracked from my healthy goals for awhile. I can give you all the excuses in my head that I have been telling myself (lies, all lies!), but really, I lost focus on this particular aspect of things for awhile. It is what it is. I just have to accept that and keep going. So I'm bringing my path back to this and back to spark. I thought about this site almost everyday, but I just did not have it in me at the time to come back and commit to it. I don't like doing things halfway, so I just didn't do it at all. That's another thing I have to work on. Things don't have to be perfect, I have to accept that and just do what I can.
Now I have decided to try it a little differently. I am going to eat better, make better choices, cook more often, not snack as much and when I do snack, snack better. I am going to move more. I am going to take the stairs, get up from my desk and walk around, do wall push-ups and squats in the bathroom (thank you BLC for that one!) and get in at least a half hour of intentional exercise per day. I'm contemplating joining a gym so that I can take classes, but that might have to wait until after the holidays. For now, I have a gym in my building, a gym at my work AND I have tons of DVDs at home, not to mention anything that I can on demand from the TV or computer. There is no reason right now to now get in my 30 minutes per day. I admit that I enjoy classes more, but with the holiday schedule, I would be paying and not going. Plus, before I start to pay, I can do a free week with an online pass, so I want to be able to try the full free week first. So, that's for next month. But for now, I had my green smoothie for breakfast, I unfortunately forgot my nice healthy lunch at home, but I intend to make a better choice in the cafeteria, and I have my workout gear at work and ready to go at the end of the day before I go home =)
