New Path & New Plan
Friday, June 11, 2021
I am a creature of habit and plans. I love knowing what will come next. This year is definitely different. The old plan is not going to work anymore. I have to change. I need to accept the fact that I'm changing and my life will never be the same.
My first change is in my mind. I'm going to play more and worry less. I'm going to enjoy nature and read for the sheer pleasure of reading. For a long time, I read for the purpose of school and teaching.
My second change is in the way I look at my overall health and my eating habits. No more cheating. When I had a one bite treat, I stayed in a healthy glucose range. One bite turned into 3, then 5. I must stick with the one bite rule or stay away from certain foods all together.
My third change is with my exercise. I am adding swimming in the lake to my workout schedule and more stretching. My grandchildren are coming in July and I need to be able to keep up with them.
My fourth plan is to simplify my life. I am cutting out the unnecessary and that which has little benefit. I can do this!
