This morning I woke up and decided I have had enough. I am sick of feeling yucky all of the time. I want to feel better and I know that in order to do that, I need to start making healthier food choices. I knew this day would come.
A few weeks ago I started exercising. This is generally a first step for me. Now this morning I decided to face the scale. I have gained weight -- a lot of weight. So enough. It is time to start making better choices and tracking my food again. Today I started tracking again. It feels good.
Interestingly, I also decided I was sick of getting so many emails from the various companies I have given my email address to for whatever reason. I unsubscribed from at least ten lists. Then I cleaned my apartment (okay that’s probably because I have people coming over tomorrow.) I feel like I can breathe all of a sudden. Like I have more space. I used to get about 20 emails a day. Today I got two and unsubscribed from their lists too.
Getting rid of clutter seems symbolic of what I am doing today. I am not going to beat myself up. That would just add to the clutter. I am going to give myself room to focus on things that matter.
