This past weekend has been bananas, I had a couple of breakdowns, started feeling like I wasn’t enough, wasn’t good enough for my job, they didn’t appreciate me. Had to really step back and re-evaluate my position there and my life. I know I am enough, it’s just sometimes life sucks and you can’t take everything personal and I realize that I am enough. You move on to the what’s next.
My goal # 1:
I also was a little sad because I thought I wouldn’t be able to start my 30 days of yoga. After discussing with my doc, we decided that I should do both the physical therapy and the yoga. I originally was foregoing the P.T. Thirty days of yoga is very personal to me. I got the idea from the yoga website, it stated first time students can purchase a thirty-day yoga card for a huge discount. I thought this would be a perfect way for me to complete something that, aligned with my health issues and goals. All I have to do is show up. I knew it was the perfect stretch for me, because I tend to start projects than quit because I lose interest because I have no patience for the outcomes, And, I procrastinate big time, always waiting for the last-minute then start moving my butt. I have these great plans with little to no follow through. I want it right now and I sometimes dread the fact that I have to do a, b, and c to get to reach a goal and I’ll just give up. Whats different this time is who I get to be; committed, patient (with myself), powerful, and relentless. I didn’t understand the Be, Do, Have, before the work, but I totally get it today. I still struggle with it, some days more than others. This stretch I will not quit, I will stay till its complete no matter what.
So, the issue that was coming up; how was I going to do both P.T and my 30 days of yoga. I initially thought it couldn’t be done, because of times and travel distances. Then it occurred to me that I could switch my PT, whose in Brooklyn to a location in Manhattan near the Yoga studio, class doesn’t start until 6:15. I get out of work at 4:00, this would definitely be a possibility. When I came home I looked on the therapist’s website because I remembered seeing a location in Manhattan and lo and behold they have an office 15 minutes from my job and, two train stops from the yoga studio. How cool is that!! I will call the first thing in the morning to make the switch, we will see what happens. I can always switch my P.T therapist one more time. The universe does answer!!!
My goal #2:
For the most part my eating has been on point, I lost two pounds, I am doing HCG along with low-calorie diet, to jumpstart the Ketogenic. With the HCG supplement, you lose pounds and inches, it’s a very strict diet that requires a lot of discipline. It has three phases to it; loading, doing and the maintenance. I did have a few hiccups and cheated on almonds and cashews, not so bad. Water drives the diet, I stay in the bathroom. Phase two of this diet will be finished by the first week in November; phase three is where I make the full transition into a ketogenic lifestyle, this will be my new lifestyle along with Intermittent fasting. I will post my stats on pounds and inches next week.
I started my floor exercises, but I need to do at least three times a week. I’ve been procrastinating, I will commit to doing them tomorrow and Saturday.
Finally feeling like this part of my life is moving and taking shape after being stagnated for the last four months. I am moving my goal to fruition. Being healthy and looking healthy is very important to me and I’ve just begun.
