Fresh Start. This begins week 2 in my quest to a healthier lifestyle. My journey has had a lot of obstacles, some of which I now realize that I placed in the way. Today I continue taking a different route. This route is called CHANGE. Change can be difficult but it can be maneuvered towards success. It just takes some determination & a willingness for something better. When I hit a detour or roadblock, I will make better choices. I will not give up. I will instead look for another way to reach my goals. I can & will do this.
Exercise: I have promised myself that I will do something this week. It will be for a duration of three days, for a minimum of ten minutes. Just remember that RA doesn't like you using your joints, but I will and will get stronger & stronger.
Negativity: This is another hard challenger. It's been with me my entire life. It's now time for us to part company. Positive thoughts are what I am going to think from now on. It will take some time, but will be worth the effort. I am going to learn to love myself, and appreciate what I have. As with the exercise goal I will get stronger, & wiser. The past is the past. Looking forward to my future. I will ask the angels to guide me in all my goals. I will listen to Kelly Howell and Louise Hay. They offer plenty of elf help options. Again I can and will do this. It may not be today, or even tomorrow but it will happen. I open my arms & heart to the universe. I show gratitude for what I have.
The hardest goal is to reduce my sugar intake. I know that I am capable of doing this. I have faced strong challengers in the past. I am now a non smoker, and free of Diet Pepsi, or any soda for that matter. I managed to make the change by drinking water. I do not plan to eliminate sugar completely, just be aware of how much I am consuming. The real problem is chocolate. It's my comfort food. so I will need to replace it with something healthier. Again this won't happen over night, but I going to try hard to cut back.
I can do this
I believe in myself
I will not fear the changes
I will embrace them
I will experience new things
I will continue to move forward
I will conquer my goals
Because I am worth it
Because I love myself enough to make these changes
