So 2020 continues to be a roller coaster of little highs and many lows. Since this year I have packed on the poundage and fallen all the way off my exercise game. To make matters worse, even though it seems like eons ago, it was only January that I was in the best shape of my life. I took it for granted. Then I started to get sick all the time – well more than usual which is saying a lot. So I was sick and it seems since March I have not fully recovered.
Now I have to face the reality of my situation. I have to go to the doctor. I need to take back control instead of eating poorly and feeling sorry about where I am at. Though I have come to dread going to the doctor based on a lack of trust relating to whether or not they can truly help me, I have decided to be as proactive as I can be. Plus something’s been telling me to go, so I am going.
I have also decided to cut back on going on social media and today was the most productive day I have had in awhile, and I am not talking about the erratic productivity that sees you doing everything and still getting nothing done. I have completed the full draft of my Masters paper, something that in January seemed impossible and I feel like something has changed overall today. There has been a shift and I hope this is the beginning of a more fruitful period. I remain hopeful and faithful.
So, today I also ate what I consider to be quite well. I was not constantly hungry, stuffing myself without rhyme or reason and then being sick of it all after. However something strange happened today. I got up, did the necessaries and then exercised and actually ate something reasonably healthy and this continued throughout the day. I will do my best to continue this but I know it will take time and patient – something I did not get enough of at birth.
Above are meals that not only kept me fueled all day but which were also very tasty. These meals represent the signs that change is possible if we do our part. When all the ingredients necessary are provided, it would be a crime to ignore them and let them go to waste. You never know what form that change will take, you just need to make sure you recognise the signs and take action.
It is time for a change and it will not happen unless we pay attention to the signs and make the change possible by taking the necessary route and making the first step speak to the fact that you have a plan. Today was a good day because I decided to take hold of the opportunity to make it so. Will you do the same?
