So Day One of my 21 Day Challenge started off very well! I slept very fitfully, but I put it down to thinking too much about all of this. So when the alarm went off at 6am, I got up and exercised for half an hour! In my quest for 'vibrant health' I have decided to begin by exercising three or more times a week and work up to more. I have also made the fairly major decision (with Mark's help and support) to stop dieting.
Every time I try hard to lose weight I end up gaining it. If you subscribe to the concept of 'what you focus on appears,' then the more I focus on 'weight' whether it be losing it or gaining it, the more 'weight' will appear. So I am going to stop focusing on it. I am going to try to eat what I want when I am hungry and to stop when I am full. When I feel like I am going to be deprived of something I want it more - not good for weight loss. So that's the plan.
I spent my goal of 15 minutes focusing on my goals this morning, but then the universe had an interesting plan for me. Mid-morning at work I started feeling rotten and then progressively worse and now I am home with what appears to be a big bout of the flu. It's strange that I got this today, but I am going to rest, listen to my body and not get off track. Tonight I am going to work on one bit of writing towards the website, and I will have accomplished everything I wanted to today, sick or not.
I am determined that this is going to work! I feel good about my steps today. Now, back to bed.
