Moving forward

Sunday, August 25, 2013

The start of a new week begins today. This is the last week of the month, so I would like to finish it with some positive results.

So far this month I have taken responsibility for my actions, and am moving forward in my journey. No, it's not been perfect, but it's more about taking steps to improve my over all health. I have made steady progress, and I'm proud of how far I've come. Learning from our mistakes is part of the journey.

Still on my quest to remain chocolate free. So far I have accomplished 25 days of chocolate free. Honestly I didn't I could do it, however I'm learning that I am stronger than I give myself credit for.

Exercise is progressing, again not perfect, but steady improvement. This is an important component in my journey. With all my health issues, and possibly more to be unveiled next month, exercise is key. I will strive to be more consistent in this area.

This week I will focus on my life, being happy, not worrying what others think. I have let other peoples opinions of me, upset me, & disrupt my journey. That is my past, I will now embrace my future, even with flaws, as no one is perfect.

I continue to work on self improvement. I have been listening to a tape for the past few weeks. The suggested listening period is six weeks which concludes Saturday. Not sure if I will listen a little longer, but I definitely want to start another tape. It is a sublimeral tape by Kelly Howell. Feel it is helping.

Tonight I did thirty minutes of walking in place. To break it up a bit, I mixed some lunges, toe touches, and squats . Even used my weight for a short time. Totally exhausted, my whole body hurts. I will not give up.

What I have learned is "Small changes can make a big difference in our lives" I don't know who said that, but it's so true. Have to keep pushing myself forward to reach my destination. It will take awhile to get there, but it will be so worth it.
