DAY 1 TO A STRONGER ME
After visiting the Dr. I know what I have to do. If I can only do 2 minutes an hour exercise or something then that is what I will have to do. This is what I have been brought down too after doing 400 to 600 minutes a day. Not what you did but what you can do at the moment and that is 2 minutes. Have to start somewhere and that is it. Slo pitch, walk, move a few dishes to the closet, what ever it will be something.
God bless all of you who have been praying for me he is watching over me.
To Create, Be
"If you would create something, you must be something." - Johann Wolfgang von Goethe
Split a meal out.
When I go out with my girlfriends for dinner we split the entry. Serving is too big anyways. We skip on the drinks. No guilt about spending money or eating too much.
When steam cooking food in the microwave with water, after taking the food out, immediately wipe down the steamy interior. You will keep the microwave clean if done each use.
Take a look i the mirror and say "I believe in me!" Staying postive about yourself is a great way to help in your journey. Believing in yourself wholeheartedly will keep you on track.
