18 Guideposts for My Personal Journey (the second batch)
Sunday, October 16, 2016
7. Recycle. Don’t fix what’s not broken. Reuse what’s worked before. Make a list of the things that have worked before and how can you implement them in your current situation.
Eating whole non processed foods
Limiting sugar and sweets
Eating lots of fruits and vegetables
Limit my calories to 1600-1800
Walking 12,500 steps daily
Just do it
8. Trust your intuition. Resist second-guessing. Don’t let your stomach make bad choices…resist the lure.
It's not my stomach making bad decisions, it's my emotions!
9. “Success” cannot be defined by others or even put into the hands of others for evaluation. If left unguarded, your success could be taken away at any moment. If you equate success with your intrinsic worth (even subconsciously), then you will be left broken apart. Own your success….don’t hand it over to someone or something…be the captain of your own ship.
Ultimately, I am getting healthy for me and only me.
10. Be more proactive and less reactive – to better align your reality with your vision. Reactive will only lead to loss of control. How can you be more proactive in your journey?
I've done this before, I know how to do it, I just need to follow through!
11. Attempting to avoid negative events and situations proves an exercise in futility – negative things happen to everyone. However, adversity can often provide an opportunity to strengthen character, deepen emotional fortitude, and increase your overall sense of self and self-worth. These life lessons can only come when you decide to channel through difficult circumstances while relying on the gift of embracing self-empowerment. Prepare for events and situations that may be out of your control. Know what you can eat before you agree to dinner or lunch dates. Assert your independence by selecting the time and place of food outings.
I enjoy cooking so we very rarely eat out. When we do, I plan accordingly
12. Time and energy are not equal. Improve their interaction by learning their unique characteristics.
On busy days I exercise early, so I don't miss it.
