As I start Day 3, in looking at my food journal (yes I am journaling. As I mentioned previously, I couldn’t ask any of my clients or business partners to do something that I myself haven’t done) I am amazed at how little I have really needed to fuel my body.
The evenings have been one area that I lost control over. Several evenings a week I can be on webcasts that take me to 9 or even 10 pm. I had the habit of often, not always but often, having a snack and a glass of wine while “working”. In being exposed to those situations I am celebrating the control and focus over them. It’s all about the road map that we create in our minds. Every day see it as done then the body merely follows.
There is a sense of peacefulness as well that I am noticing. It could be due to the fact that I am no longer worrying about my health and “what am I going to do” and “when can I get started on improving it” or due to the fact that I am eliminating chemically loaded foods. Foods, such as even cheese, that have been modified. Regardless of the source of calmness I realize on a higher level how much the mind, body and spirit are all connected in well being.
I do also recognize that this may be the “honeymoon” phase. Anytime we start a new something whether it is to improve our relationships, health or finances there is a level of enthusiasm. I recognize it, accept it and will stay connected to my vision.
The other area that I also recognize is “licensing”. That is the voice in our heads that would say something like “oh, you’ve been “good” so go ahead and have………” But I will leave that for later in the week as the weekend approaches.
For just today make one change, take back control of your health. Perhaps a good thing is to have that talk with yourself. Be honest; get clarity of where you want to go/be. No plan yet, just think about it.
POSSIBILTIES: Dream on it. Let your mind take you to places you would like to go, and then think about it and plan it and celebrate the possibilities. And don’t listen to anyone who doesn’t know how to dream. Liza Minnelli
