Do you have something you do day in and day out? When do you wake up and what time you go to bed? How about what you eat? What do you fuel your body with. Do you ask yourself these question? If so, Why? and If not, Why? What is it about you that makes you so special? Huge question , for me.
The tasks we do on a daily basis are called habits. Some habits are good and some are not so good. I have been asking myself these questions. Am I happy with who I am. Why or Why not? Is my weight pleasing to me and what about it makes me happy or unhappy. How do I fix some of the health issues facing me today? AND the way I eat, am I happy with it? What about my emotional habits.
Do I blame others for my actions or do I take credit for bad behavior as well as good behavior. Is my behavior acceptable, do I like how I act? These are big questions for me. These questions effect everything from my mood, self esteem, down to how much stress I am putting on myself. It even effects the stress I put on others. All of it works together and in the end it effects how I act and how I treat others.
So to me it comes down to habits. What kind of habits have I kept through out my life? Bad habits, and some of us have been following these same bad habits all our lives. But today I am ready to learn and create some new habits. Today I am ready to step out of my comfort zone to try something new.
Will you join me?
I am creating some new habits and working on breaking some bad ones. Come join me as I share my daily and weekly struggles to feeling better about myself. To feel comfortable in my own skin. I am currently a little over 200 pounds and just had a baby. Before my pregnancy I was around 236 pounds. Struggling with gestational diabetes is not new to me and I am pre diabetic now.
There are a lot of health issues that run in my family that I would like to put off as long as I can or avoid altogether. This can be done with diet, exercise and paying better attention to what is happening in my own life and to my own body. Not meaning to sound selfish but sometimes we need to be selfish. I can’t take care of everybody I need to take care of, if there is no me to take care of everybody I take care of.
Im hoping that my experience will benefit someone else too. Not just me. There are lots of different types of habits and experiences such as sleep, stress, diet, etc. Even how we treat ourselves can be a habit. How we self talk. The way we act when we feel like a bad decision was made.
I look forward to sharing and hearing from others too.
