Max Ignatius Atlas Year Of Change Day 153
This morning was pleasant as usual, except for the fact that I didn’t get to eat breakfast until later since I had to take care of a few errands. This reminded me of my shortsighted attempts to fast. That was before I realized that fasting was not going to be some miracle solution for weight loss and fitness, not to mention that I was absolutely miserable while I was doing it. Instead, I’ve simply adopted more mindful eating habits, and that’s been much more effective and enjoyable for me.
I felt inclined to go out for a walk after I finished up my chores, and as I was picking up litter an older gentleman passing by complimented me on my efforts. He said that it was great that I was making the most of my youth by doing good for the planet’s health. That honestly surprised me a bit, but there was some truth in the statement. Even though I’m almost 40, and I certainly FEEL old, I suppose I’m still somewhat young in the grand scheme of things, so I should make the best of my “youth” while I still can! Nothing like a passing remark by a stranger to put things into perspective.

I can really see now how sculpting your body is like crafting a work of art.
For tonight’s workout, I was surprisingly loose and limber, so I guess my stretching routine is paying off. Even small improvements that come with enhanced mobility can work wonders to your overall performance, which is something I wish I had known when I first got started. While I can’t make up the potential progress that I would have had, I can at least continue to work hard with the knowledge and motivation that I have now.

Quote of the Day
“Take care of your body. It’s the only place you have to live.” – Jim Rohn
I’m unendingly grateful for all the opportunities my new lifestyle has afforded me. I feel like everything I do will only lead to new pastures, a far cry from my past of insecurities and worry. Only time (and more hard work) will tell what other good things life has in store for me.
