Change Your Perceptions, Change Your Reality – Day 97

Max Ignatius Atlas Year Of Change Day 97

Mandatory New Think Warning Reg: FO99

I woke up today hungrier than usual, and if you could believe it, I actually started craving fruits! I used to eat apples and bananas to try and quell my cravings, but now it seems like they’ve become the cravings themselves. I don’t know if this is because my body has developed preferences towards healthy foods, or if I’m just going a little crazy, but I really don’t care. I’ll take fruit cravings over fried food cravings any day of the week.

Recently I noticed that I’m starting to fit back into my old clothes, and that’s been a huge boon for my confidence. Sometimes it’s better to get simple, tangible proof of your progress amid all the planning and tracking you do. I see this as not just newfound confidence in my appearance and the progress I’m making, but also life in general. Seeing how far I’ve come reassures me that I can tackle anything in life I set my mind to.

Today’s workout was really intense, and I had a great cardio session in particular. I really enjoy improving my endurance, and it has revitalized the hope that one day I’ll be able to run a 10K, or perhaps even a marathon. I know that sounds a bit ambitious (crazy, even) for someone who could barely chase their kids around a few months ago, but I know that I’m capable if I continue to put in the work. Sometimes I surprise even myself with how confident I’ve become.

There’s nothing more satisfying than seeing a list of things to do, and knowing that I’ll be able to crush them with ease. This is a far cry to how I used to view my schedule with apprehension.
