1 week on the challenge!
Good morning everyone!!!!!! Well, it's been one week since I woke up and said Today Is The Day. I am very happy and satisfied with progress and feeling pretty good. Yeah, sure, I still need to work on 3 areas, namely:
But, hey, I'm eating good stuff, I've lost a little weight, and my face is looking better. More importantly, my outlook on life is BRIGHTER! I've noticed that when I am calmer and more balanced that I see better, too. Not as in my eyesight improving (yet) but more like I think more clearly and this is helping me to shape a longer term life plan, a vision of what I want and where I want to be, in say...1, 3 and 5 years from now.
This is something I surely wouldn't have predicted. Why?
Because when I was eating bad and stressed, I would drink alcohol in the evening to de-stress...but then it would mess up my sleep and the next day I'd be all bleary and tired. So, I'd eat high calorie greasy foods for "energy" and stay in a high level of anxiety and then go for more alcohol to relax. And you get the picture - I was on the proverbial hamster wheel. So, back to the point, when I was living like this it was hard to see past the day, or the next day....there was no life plan. No vision.
I see now that I can start living to my full potential...it's on the horizon.
What am I doing today to celebrate 1 week on this amazing journey to better health and a thinner me? I am going for a long walk...and later meeting friends at Cafe Gratitude for a lovely raw vegan lunch!!! Check out their yummy menu here --> http://www.withthecurrent.com/menu.html
