In my Life

Most of the time when I make a decision about my life it is just a spur of the moment decision, never very well thought out and usually the results can be seen in my spontaneous decision making. This is not true right now {in this moment}. I have been thinking about this for some time now. Why I do the things I do, why do I let myself get so sidetracked, why do I find it so hard to take better care of me. Most of the reasons lead me back to the fact that I am a very live-in-moment-person. Whatever happens to be going on in my life usually overrides my plans and the goals I have worked so hard to achieve. Something has to change, and that change has to come from me. I am always going to be an impulsive person, that is part of who I am. That is one of the things I like about myself, but it is also one of the things that so often brings me to defeat. So right now {in this moment} I am making some decisions that will hopefully help me when the day head offers me something I can't resist.
  • Start my day off (5:30 AM with exercise)
  • Plan my menu the day before (Be flexible, but be consistent)
  • Enjoy this moment (they are going fast)
Small changes, but they are HUGE changes.... In my life, I have to move, I can't put it off... This is the one thing I find to be the most difficult, and for me and it is the most important part of my quest to live a healthy life. Thanks to a good friend (for her early morning calls) I am on my way!!!!!!
