So, recently I have been seeing everywhere in magazines how you should keep on top of yourself. That even though it takes time and effort to get up in the morning and brush your hair and teeth, get dressed, and put some make up on, even when you have nothing to do and no where to go, you will feel better about yourself. Once in a while it is OK to lounge around in your jammies but if you do it too often it gets too easy to lay around and watch TV every time you have a day off. This is where I am at. After just having knee surgery and have been out of commission for a couple weeks, it got way too easy for me to lay around and read endless amounts of books without worrying about getting dressed or shaving my legs and in doing so, I have been sad and lonely and feeling hopeless about life. I feel like it is very important to start getting up every morning and making myself presentable for the day and I am hoping it will do wonders for my moods.
So, here is the next part. As most of you may know, I am not the most in-shape person in the world (HA!). But that doesn't matter to me. I could CARE LESS about being stick thin and wearing a size 2. Would it be cool? Sure! But is that one of my goals? Absolutely not! My goal is however, to be healthy. As of right now, I am in good health (other than some orthopedic issues) but I am afraid that if I keep going down the path I am going down, I will not be in very good health for much longer. So I woke up this morning, and as I was sitting on my butt yet again, I decided that its not very hard to get up, eat a healthy breakfast, put on some work out clothes and sneakers and go for a walk! I mean really, its simple and that is exactly what I did even though it was pouring rain. So what has stopped me before? I guess I was just stuck in a downward spiral. The only place to go now is up.
So, this is me, soaking wet after a half an hour walk in the pouring rain looking like a hot mess. I am hoping that this fire burning inside of me that I found today stays lit and I can continue to keep going with this life make over. I am making over my inside, and in result, it will start showing on the outside.
So my goals for this self project of mine...
1.) Wake up every morning, no matter how early I have to get up or no matter what the weather and go for a half an hour walk.
2.) After said walk, take a shower, get dressed, put some damn make up on and be grateful for, and not waste, another day on this Earth.
