I have been in a personal slump lately. I can’t seem to relax, or find things funny, and I am SO lazy. I am tired of feeling miserable. As a part of a personal mission over the next week I am going to put make up on and do my hair every day for a week. This doesn’t sound like much, but I rarely do make up or hair anymore. I roll out of bed, have breakfast, then throw my hair however it will cooperate and go to work.
I am not saying that you need to wear make up to feel pretty and less lazy, but I am doing this in hopes that it will give me a little boost. A goal to put effort into myself should help me appreciate myself. I have been attempting to lose weight and change my diet and “be healthy” nutritionally, with little to no results for about a year now. I think my attempt at a healthier life needs to start on the outside first, for effort, then can work its way in. If I try to make myself look and feel better then I hope the rest will follow.
As my plan to change my lifestyle continues, I hope to add new things to it each week as continue to grow like until being happy and healthy seems like less of a pain in the ass. This week I will start with appreciating and embracing my outer appearance, and next week I will try to incorporate a new work out a day for the week. While sitting here typing this out I feel a rush of energy. I think starting small and building up might be the right way to tackle this, going head first into something very different hasn’t proven right for me. It is now time for a real change!
Many have mastered it, but I am not one of the few. I am a 25 year old woman and I have an unhealthy relationship with drinking. I vary between stages of enjoying a beer or two and drinking until I can’t remember coming home. I have always had a problem with understanding my limits and I feel that as I get older my understanding grows worse.
I live with a man who wants to be my husband, and it’s gotten to the point where I can’t go out with my friends and come back trashed and think it’s funny or cute, that’s not how a wife should act. Not a wife that he deserves, anyway.
Recently (and by recently I mean 2 days ago) I decided that I needed to start a journey to health. Mind, body, and spirit or something like that. I have been in a weird place lately and feel that becoming healthier in all Aspects will help. And as part of my journey I have decided that cutting all drinking out for a month to text how great my body ( and my wallet) will after that time. I do enjoy a good beer or a delicious cocktail from time to time so I don’t anticipate never drinking again, I just think I need to cut it off as reintroduce myself to it in a healthier way. Let’s see if I can hold myself to it.
