Create a life that feels good on the inside – not one that just looks good on the outside.

Friday, September 04, 2020

That’s been my motto since restarting this weight-loss ride a few weeks ago.

It started with verbalizing how I want things to be different.

The words gave me the incentive to get up and do something.

It wasn’t every day. And it definitely wasn’t for more than a few minutes.

But things are a changing ~ all those minutes are adding up! emoticon

Albert Einstein said compound interest is the 8th wonder of the world. He who understands it, earns it; he who doesn't, pays it. He's so right!

a) I’m enjoying preparing more meals, not just mindlessly snacking or throwing something together anymore. It feels great to want to be creative in the kitchen again.

b) am constantly on the hunt for new ways to move my body! Doesn’t matter if it’s a stretch, I'm eager to try and modify instead of just sitting and watching, lol

c) am totally not stressing over the scale anymore! I know I’m doing my best with diet and exercise and that’s my new measuring tape! As long as I feel stronger, once or twice a week is enough.

d) am NOT beating myself up over how “I think” I should look or eat or act, or live, or any of it anymore! It is what it is … I am who I am … and God don’t make mistakes emoticon

Is it hard most days? heck to the yes! but I've decided so what.

I'm committed to the vision and sacrificing myself to change.

The Dali Lama says happiness is a choice. So is apathy and depression.

Different mindset, different results.
