How to Start a Healthy Lifestyle from Scratch – Day 18

Mandatory New Think Warning Reg: FO99

I was a bit irritated this morning because I had planned to go for a leisurely jog through the park, but it was absolutely pouring rain outside, so I was at a loss as to what I should do. It’s a pain to have your carefully planned schedule ruined, but that’s just how life goes sometimes. The day is never ruined just because it doesn’t start out the way you expected it to.

My first thought was to turn on the television to see if there was anything good show, but then I realized how much of a negative this was for my old lifestyle. In the past, when I started watching T.V. early in the day, I’d become so engrossed in what I’m watching that I’d end up sitting on the couch for hours. There’s still a lot I want to get done today, so I’m going to avoid making this a habit again.

Instead, I tidied up and washed my kitchen work surfaces, did some mediation, and afterwards, I decided to read stories online of people who are going through diet plans like me. It’s amazing how diverse people’s journeys are when it comes to getting fit; some people have had an easy go of it, some have had the usual ups and downs, and others have had such a rough time that they’re considering giving up. This helped put things into perspective for me, but it’s unfortunate to know that a lot of people have gotten discouraged.

This is one of the reasons why I’m even doing this blog in the first place: to show people that losing weight is not always a straight path, and that failure and frustration are stepping stones to success. If you are on a health journey like I am, and are struggling to get the results you desire, I hope that I can inspire you to keep getting back on your feet, because it will all be worth it in the end.

Day 18 of the Year of Change Wrap Up

Day 18 shows even the best-laid plans don’t always go how you want them to with factors outside your control, however, I am trying to find opportunity in everything and not wasting time unnecessarily. I am not at a level yet however were I want to run in the pissing rain at 6 am, but never say never.
