Sometimes it’s Better to Just Do it – Day 149

Max Ignatius Atlas Year Of Change Day 149

Mandatory New Think Warning Reg: FO99

This morning I finally got back to my morning run, and I must say that it went great. I tried to make a conscious effort not to go too hard and ease myself back in, but I couldn’t help myself once I started moving. It literally felt like a huge relief that I was able to get all sweaty and out of breath, which is really saying something about how far I’ve come!

Later on in the day, as I was reminding myself to maintain good posture while lifting heavy things around, I realized just how much my lifestyle has improved my overall well-being, and not just fitness. Being more healthy has definitely helped with my hair, skin, and posture, but I’ve also put more of an emphasis on self-care in general. Having more energy and bodily awareness provides a lot of motivation to take better care of yourself in various areas, and I’m definitely happy that I’ve been able to benefit from this.

Tonight’s dinner was another vegetarian meal, and I enjoyed it for the most part. I’m starting to appreciate the taste and texture of veggies more, but I still love meat to an almost unreasonable extent. In fact, even though I’m the one who prepared this meal, I literally asked why there wasn’t any meat! I know that I’m bound to change though, and soon enough I’ll remember this moment as just another funny incident in my meat-loving past.

Today things official went back to normal as far as my routine is concerned, but it almost feels like I never missed a beat. Even though my schedules have worked wonders in keeping me in check, they’ve also helped me adapt to unforeseen circumstances. As varied as the day’s challenges will be, I’m now equipped to handle them readily.
