There comes a time in every journey where you hit a roadblock – and I think I’ve hit mine.
It’s been almost two months since I started regularly exercising and trying to eat a more balanced and healthy diet and I’m totally bewildered as to why I’m laying on my bed at 7:16 a.m. writing, moping around instead of getting my sweat on and preparing my food for lunch.
If I’m still so passionate about living a healthy life why aren’t I doing my very best to work for it?
When I figure out how to bust through this rut, I share some tips with you. For now though, I am going to drag my sorry butt out of bed and get a workout in before class because somewhere inside my head, a little voice is saying “you can do it!”, “you’ll feel great afterwards!”.
And I will listen to that little voice because perhaps the quietest, kindest self-talk is the best one to listen to, instead of agreeing with the monstrous thoughts yelling “you’re a failure”, “you’re not good enough”, “you suck so just lie there and make your worthlessness a reality”.
On another more awesome note, last night I felt for chinese food and did my best to make another asian inspired dish.
I started with some carrots and 3 celery sticks, steamed in the microwave for 6 minutes.
Then I added an ample sprinkle of ginger, garlic powder and cayenne pepper and 1/2 tbsp of soy sauce.
After that I steamed some bok choy and 1/2 cup of lima beans.
And added all together with a generous serving of noodles, it was fantastic!
Wishing you all a fantastic Wednesday!
(and if you have any great tips on breaking through mental roadblocks, I’d love to hear them!…I’m in desperate need of motivation!)
