Slow and steady.
After I communicated with you yesterday (I updated a previous post yesterday though the date of the post is incorrect) , I make a trip to the movies and chowed down on buttered popcorn and a veggie combo which includes wedges and fried soya nuggets. Do I feel good about that? NO! Did I need that? Yes! I needed that escape and I learnt that you can have those naughty things in moderation. Lesson for life…..?
With the daily frustrations of life lately, I find it very easy to blow my top. Sometimes I think that I will be punished as result given my belief in the system of karma but I just cannot help my rage sometimes. It is sad and I feel pretty confused sometimes but I think I just need to sort myself out. Take it one day at a time to sort out my feelings and understand what I want and how I want to feel.
I want to look better, I want to feel better and I want to enjoy life. Don’t we all?
So today, I made a leap and its a big step for me. I reached to work at 7:59. Usually its 8:15, 8:37, 9:10. Obviously not a great start to the day but I just had no interest. Improvement, I cared about arriving early. So why do I sit here now in a state of negativity and reluctant?
This is what should be done-
Get up, go take a walk. look at something of interest to bring back some colour to the items.
I should take pride in the work I output so this reluctance is definitely the wrong approach.
Lets see what I have eaten so far 5-12 noon-
- 1 cup of tea
- 1 cup oats
- 1 pack of cashew nuts
- 1/4 roti with curried cabbage.
so I am doing well so far. i therefore project that I would need to do the follow work out-
45 minutes on the elliptical or 1 hour walking and jogging
15 minutes on weights for the arms
15 minutes abs if time permits
my aim is to increase my metabolism, get into the groove of working out and start to appreciate that time should not be wasted but each moment should be spent doing something productive with the body or the mind.
Till next time. I will update you further on what I achieved since this post.
