I am currently writing two segments for an ebook—a nutrition segment and a strength training segment. If my boss likes what I write, I will be published :) However, I found it quite ironic that I was writing an ebook on nutrition when I haven’t been following the same tips I am writing about. Eating healthy is hard, but if I am going to write about it and recommend things to my readers, I suppose I need to suck it up and just do it. The hard things in life are the ones that are worth doing, and the more you do them, the easier it gets. Which is also why my current mantra is “It doesn’t matter.” Every time I think about something that gets me down, I try to shove it out of my mind with an “It doesn’t matter.” Yes, my feelings matter. But I can’t sit around wallowing in my feelings forever. Because then I will miss out on the better things to come in life. I read this quote this morning that sort of hit home—“If you are depressed, you are living in the past. If you are anxious, you are living in the future. If you are at peace, you are living in the present.” So I need to stop thinking “Well, last year at this time…” and “Last year at that time…” because that was LAST year. Time to live in this year. New, better, things can’t happen if I am too busy wishing to rewind my life.
and i think Irene may blow the windows out soon…
Here’s to getting back in shape and involved with something I love again
health-wise. but seriously, if i am looking for a way to focus on myself, i guess focusing on my health would be a good place to start. i just like to push the limits until my body is like..oh hey… you’ve been treating your body like shit the past 3 months and you’re now on overload and slowly crashing.
