In the spirit of starting out small, with baby steps, I am going to attempt 3 goals at a time.
-100% primal eating with lots of cooking. I know I can do this, I was doing great with this just last week.
-Nerd fitness body weight workout daily, with stretching afterwards.
-5 minutes meditation in the morning.
I am going to work on these three goals for the next week, as well as write in here.
I was reading online yesterday about reasons food is abused. Stress, anxiety, fear, boredom, etc. Every example resonated with me. I realized, in a "well, duh" moment, that I need to think of things I can do instead of eat. I thought of a few: drink tea, go for a walk, call someone, paint my nails, stretch.
In addition, I was reading about the need to be comfortable with being uncomfortable. This really made sense to me. I have gotten so used to not challenging myself, and it is killing me. From my physical inactivity to my terrible diet, I am killing myself. I have got to start making myself uncomfortable. And be aware of the discomfort, and savor the discomfort. That pushing of my limits will result in growth and maturity, and really living my life.
So many things that inspire me. I need to not be afraid of going for what I want, and for what I know will make me feel fulfilled.
