I have been really struggling lately. My health, the new "normal", that is if there ever really was a normal and bad choices have all played a part as to why I am struggling. I could go into details but I am not going to because I don't really feel that is important right now. What is important for me is to take care of myself and do what is best for me. That is why I am choosing to reset. To create a new beginning. I have given it a lot of thought and am going to venture out and find myself a new path. It might take some trial and error, I may have to to detour a few times, come across some stumbling blocks or obstacles, maybe even find a new path again, although I need to do this for me.
The path I was on wasn't working for me and as they say, "if nothing changes, nothing changes." So, it is time for me to make some changes. So, first of all. I am going to be doing some more preparations for my new journey today. I am making an itinerary for my journey.
I am going to be resetting my SparkPeople account tomorrow. I don't want to do it today because I want tomorrow to be the first day of my journey. Gotta have a starting point, right? Well, that's mine. I am looking down the path and today I am not ready, so I have to do some work in order to get that way. It's like going on a vacation with no luggage. You just don't do that. Notice I said luggage and not baggage. There is a difference for me. Luggage on a trip consists of things I want to take along with me and baggage not so much. Baggage to me is all the negative thoughts and negative images from my previous journey. I don't want that.
Today, I am packing my luggage with new goals, from a new starting point. I am creating a new beginning for myself. I am not starting over, just going to choose to go on a new adventure. I am getting rid of all the baggage tomorrow when I set out to embark on my journey. It is my way of saying goodbye to bad habits and all those negative images I have. I will have my luggage packed and ready to go. So, I am resetting my SparkPeople account and getting rid of all those old measurements that make me feel like I can't do it. I see them and have thought, why am I doing this, I am not going to make it to my goal. Look at those measurements, all those up lines on my weight graph there's the proof. No, it isn't proof, they can be changed and that is what I am going to do.
I am just going to start a new journey, not beginning again. I have learned so much to do that. I am just taking those lessons with me, and moving on. I don't need to start over, it's like life. You can't go back into your mother's womb and just start over because you don't like the way your life turned out. It's the same here.
I am probably not making any sense right now, but I know what I am doing and I am going to do it! That's it! No "ifs, ands or buts." Several things might pop up in my friend's list, such as lost weight- just know that I am remodeling today and tomorrow and not all of them will be the correct report.
My agenda for today is:
to finish packing my luggage for my new journey ( I ordered a instant pot from Amazon for my new journey and that just might arrive today, too- I am so excited)
to set some new goals, both long term and short term
to prepare some of my foods for the week
