Making Progress the Slow and Steady Way

Saturday, April 12, 2014

The key to success is in my hands. It's up to me to make the changes I need to make.

I have set four goals for myself:
* To eliminate chips of any kind for this month.
* To be willing to try new foods
* To start reducing my intake of processed foods

* To exercise for 3 days a week for at least ten minutes

* To listen to a self improvement tape every night
* Learn to love myself

* To meditate every night

Well those goals have been met. I plan to continue with those goals for the
remainder of the month. My surprise was exercise. I have a really hard time
getting myself motivated to do it. Always an excuse, my body hurts, RA has flared up
I'm tired. Well I have decided I'm going to get healthy. Yes my body hurts, yet ten
minutes is not a lot to ask of myself. I have so far this month exercised EVERY day,
for at least ten minutes, some days much longer. The thing I learned is I feel better
for having done it. I now realize that I am capable of so much more.

As for food I have tried Kale. Found it wasn't so bad, added it my spaghetti sauce.
I have refrained from eating chips as I gave that up for lent. I am using more whole grains,
& eliminating a lot of processed foods. My next quest will be to reduce sugar. (Next month) & continue to explore new veggies.

I have been trying to meditate every night. At first my mind would wonder. Now I'm getting a little bit better and staying focused. I find holding a crystal helps me.
I n addition to meditation I'm also listening to self improvement tapes. I want to eliminate my negative self talk that I have carried around far to long. I feel I've made progress, much more is needed. Every day is a new opportunity to get it right.

I've learned is that I need to be consistent . It seems to be working for me.

    Your plans sound great. I went outside and meditate in the yard. I block my thoughts out while listening to the voices of the birds singing. emoticon
