Easing into it

Sunday, September 22, 2013

If I know anything about me it's that I don't do hard and fast, as evident by my inability to really kick start a solid weight loss routine over the past year. On my walk tonight though I realized the rest of 2013 may be spent easing into a healthier lifestyle. One little change every week. That's it. No drastically sophisticated, overly structured plan detailed down to every minutia. Just small adjustments I already know should exist in my daily or weekly routine. For instance I managed to keep up my water and drawing challenge over the past week (Chinese lasted a day since I already study every waking moment). I even subconsciously added cleaning daily to the list and kept that up for a week. Maybe tomorrow another little addition or subtraction will take place. The point is in my heart and mind I am so much more than what I am now. The reality is it's not going to happen over night and there's no reason to rush things. So here's to tomorrow and all the little things. For every bit of excitement and possibility is cupped in your vast potential.

    Hope today was a good one! Just hang in there and use the tools available via SP. To rephase JFK "Ask not what SP can do for you, but how you can use SP to change your life". As a person with a long history of eating disorders anorexia/bulimia and overeating I can verify the methods here are perfect! Just do what they suggest and you will win the game! emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

    I think you're on the right track. Progress not perfection. All those small changes add up, and before you know it, you will have reached your goal.

  I like your post. I use to think it was all or nothing and guess what I usually did nothing. Since that hasn't worked out well I am going to do like you said and just keep moving forward even if it is slow. emoticon
