Stay Busy, Stay Strong
There is no better way to stay positive, eat less, and stay healthy then to keep doing positive things in your life. You know things you love to do, things that make you happy. Let me ask you this: When you are whitewater rafting, riding your bike through the mountains, or hiking atop a glacier, were you thinking about food? NEVER! Now it would be a little challenging to do those things daily but you can certainly keep busy doing other things like going for a walk, reading a book, learning a new language, or even picking up a new hobby. If you keep yourself busy with life you certain make less time for eating, and less time soaking in any negatives!
It sounds weird but it is so simple and I am doing it right now! As if working a full time job and keeping up with my regular blog post is not enough, in my last post you will see I have taken on a number of goals. My April goals really amount to eating healthier, eating less, and exercising more. Those are certainly not bad ways to keep busy.
My goals certainly got the best of me over this last week. I am not here to make excuses but I am here to say that I stumbled upon numerous challenges only in week one. You know what? I did not meet all my goals, but I have done something more important than that, I kept busy and I tried my best! That is really all you can ask of yourself and I am positive that there is room for improvement.
One of my goals was I wanted to do 50 miles a week walking, biking, or kayaking. Even though I showed signs of failure in this goal only doing 30 miles, I am not gonna give up. All these new goals have certainly kept me busy and tested my will power but I only look at the positive side of my efforts and I have 5 fewer pounds to show for it.
Please share your GOALS, CHALLENGES, and STORIES right here or on my Facebook page, and be sure to share my posts with your friends.
Test this out for yourself. I am no doctor but just keep yourself busy with things you love and watch your mood and your health change. Love your life, it is the only one you have!
