I'm in my 3rd week of really paying attention to my health. I'm reviewing every aspect of my life to see what is working and what is hindering me. It takes a lot of honesty to examine my lifestyle and truly decide if something is working or not. If I find something that is not working, then I'm spending some time thinking it through as to how I can do things differently; how I can maximize my potential to be the healthiest person I can be.
For the first time I am breaking my life down into miniscule elements and re-thinking everything. Absolutely nothing is off limits in this quest to make myself over. Some days it is exhausting. Some days it is frustrating. Most days it is exhilarating and more than a little scary. I know it will be worth it though. I can feel myself changing, evolving, adapting to new ideas of hunger and satisfaction.
It takes a lot of work, a lot of thought, and a lot of courage for me to sustain this process. I know it would be okay to take it more slowly, to give myself plenty of time, but I feel that I would lose momentum if I slowed too much. I'm feeling like I really need to push forward and keep making progress.
Just like when I was in labor delivering my children, there were many times when I felt overwhelmed and thought I could not continue. But I just kept pushing, taking deep breaths, pushing, and in no time I had accomplished something that changed my life in such a great way. I have those same feelings now. I'm in the middle of something life-changing. It is not without pain and effort, but like most things, it will definitely be worth it!
