Health Journal: Reboot

So, over the days that I was doing the Health Journal…I realized that the format for all of the “categories” wasn’t working for me.

I’m honestly not in a tension spot to change my nutrition, at the current moment…so, I’m going to focus my journals, going forward, on progress of the actions I am ready to make.

I love that this is a journey…and I get to decide what I am ready for…and what I’m not ready for—-and all of that is just fine! It’s ok that I’m not ready to focus on nutrition, yet. It will come…and right now, I will focus on the things that I am ready for.

Here are my new categories.

Feel free to follow along with me in whatever capacity you’re ready for.

Non-scale victory:

I’m not big on keeping a scale. I get too obsessive and anxious when I keep a scale. I know approximately what I currently weigh, because I’ve been to the doctor recently. So, I’ll post now what I’m counting as my stating weight…and anytime I get an update on it, I’ll post. But, mostly that part of the entry will be empty. I’ll focus on non-scale victories.

If you want to join me with your own private journal, feel free to use my template…or find something else that works for you!

Also- if you do join me on this journey! I’d love your comments or an email about how your doing!

Striving for Wellness

Striving for wellness…..It has been a struggle. And, I keep coming back to it….because, health and wellness is important to me.

Part of my struggle is I feel like I have to have the perfect situation to be able to move forward, when in reality, all I need to do is show up.

I need to show up to make healthier nutrition choices.

I need to show up to make healthier lifestyle choices…another round of Hulu…or get that workout in.

A couple of days ago…I half- way showed up.

I did half of a home workout, doing all of the moves half-way.

But, I was glad I did it…because I got my body moving…

And, for some reason…I was having a block…I was making excuses as to why I couldn’t do my home workouts.

And then…I was like…STOP. This is silly…so, I went and did it.

It wasn’t perfect..in fact…far from it…but I did it.

And you can too.

If you are waiting for the perfect situation, like I was…that moment is never going to come…you just have to jump in and do it.

Eventually, you will get where you want to be…but first, you have to start somewhere…

This time, as I jump back into my wellness journey…I want to keep a journal of it.

So, be on the look out for a daily Health and Wellness Journal. It’s mostly for accountability, for me…and a record of my journey…but hopefully, it can also be something for someone out there.

Let’s do this together!
