For a while I thought in order to start seeing results and hitting goals I had to be a gluten-free- paleo-crossfit addicted-gym rat. But that just isnt me. It all became frustrating and overwhelming and nothing was working. I made my life more difficult when in reality this journey (although not easy) is more simple that what I was making it.
I am a horrible decision maker and have a fear of failure. The two of those go together and have created paralysis from over-analysis in my life. I am terrified of making the wrong choice because what if that causes a mistake and I fail at something?! OH THE HORROR! But not making a choice, is ultimately making a choice. Waiting too long to make a choice can result in missing out because the time and opportunity have passed.
I am learning to listen to my inner voice and look deep within myself to find answers. I am learning what I want to do and finding ways to make it happen. I am finding recipes that are something I would enjoy making and eating. I found a yoga class near my work that I am going to try. I am finding out and figuring out what works for ME. Not what some fitness magazine says I should do, or what the latest "healthy lifestyle craze" is.
Its pretty simple. Not easy, but simple. I am doing this for me.
