After a disappointing showing of our home, and spiraling down the rabbit hole of disappointment, I ate my way through a box of doughnuts and a gallon of ice cream!
The result – that old familiar stomach pain!
What was I thinking?
Now its back to the beginning… A fresh start…
What I’m doing is not a quick fix.
Its not even a weight loss program… Although, I could do with losing a few more pounds…
No. What I’m on, is the journey of a lifetime!
It’s an ambitious, all-important transformation in how I think about food… how I view and think about my body… my life… and what I want out of the time I have left on this earth!
Changing the way I think about food is hard.
My relationship with food is an emotional one.
Food is my comfort… my reward… a trusted friend…
I’ve got food habits and traditions that go back to my childhood.
Am I willing to give up foods that for so long have held an emotional bond?
My goal is to improve my health… my sleep… my energy levels… my mood… my body composition…my self confidence… even my quality of life…
Can the foods I eat actually do all these things?
By eating whole, farm grown and raised foods, a healthy chain reaction is initiated through my entire life. With it comes a sense of control… freedom… stability… and a confidence that inspires me to take on other personal development goals – both big and small.
The theory is, that by eating healthy, whole foods, we will feel better. And, because we feel better, we will want to do more!
I accept this theory, because I have noticed that when I feel bad, I eat junk food. Which makes me feel worse. So, I eat more junk food. Its a vicious cycle!
The journey to good health isn’t easy… I don’t expect to be perfect…
Real change takes time.
As I get myself back on track, I plan to celebrate even the smallest of victories.
I’m doing this one day, one meal, one bite at a time.
Because I’m doing it for the most important and worthwhile cause on this earth — me!
Here’s to your good health,
