I’m making excuses.
If I want to lead a healthy life I just have to do it.
I know binge eating is a problem, but I can avoid my triggers.
I need to nap and go to bed earlier.
I need to mix up my food and exercise to avoid boredom.
I need to get engaged with my hobbies.
Look into triathlon training
Look into nutrition
Start crafting lists or thought journal – use tapes to make things pretty (not perfect)
Cycle and walk for fun – take camera out and enjoy the countryside
Take up headspace and practice mindfulness
I need to stick to my budget and that will allow me to save and spend on things I really want rather than chocolate or binge foods.
I need to make the food I eat for meals more appetising.
I need to make health a priority.
The number on the scale is just a number. It does not define me or success.
What do I want to live for?
See the world!
Go skiing all over the world
Try new activities
Meet new people
Sign up for events and be able to give anything a go
To experience life
To practice meditation and maybe take up tai chi or a martial art
To explore my local place where ever I am
For me life isn’t about people or things. It’s not about starting a family of settling down. It’s about experiences and exploring and learning. I don’t ever want to stop learning.
I’m limited in terms of money right not, but that doesn’t mean I can’t learn about health and myself. Let’s rephrase that – I’ve not got the opportunity to plan any trips right now so I can use this time to explore myself. This is an opportunity to not be distracted by grand plans and trip planning. This is an opportunity to get to know me on a daily basis. This is an opportunity to make great small decisions that add up to something amazing each day.
I’m going to tune into myself more often. I’m going to ask myself how I’m feeling. I’m going to ask myself what I fancy.
I’m also going to listen. To myself!
I would like to take the words – should, could, need, must – out of my vocabulary. I am going to replace them with kinder words of encouragement and listening.
This is a totally random post. It wasn’t started as a post. I was in work having trouble concentrating on anything that I opened a word document and kept adding to it throughout the day. It helped me get my thoughts out and I feel better for it. It might not make much sense to anyone else reading, but I wanted to share the struggle as well as the success.
