This blog is a bit of a sojourn from the norm as it is not about photography at all!
I feel I need to write this and put it out into the world for reasons that hopefully become apparent.
I’m 44 years old and I think about living my life every day.
I’m pretty good at thinking about it. I think about things I would like to do. I think about how it would be nice to look after myself. I think about plans I can make for tomorrow. I think about living my life a lot.
I am now thinking about how much I think about it. I think I think too much and I think I am wasting my life – my beautiful, cherished, fortunate life.
I think it is time to stop thinking and start doing. (Just a thought).
I am 44 years old and although I have good health, I am not healthy. I am overweight by a good 10 -15 kgs. (I’m not too sure as standing on the scales is not a nice thought).
I know all about how to be healthy. I know that to cut sugar, wheat, processed and refined foods from the diet is good. I know exercising, drinking water, sleep and laughter is good too.
I know this.
I do this – Drink copious amounts of wine, eat chippies and fast food regularly, sit at home and work on the computer, sleep poorly and frown about it all.
If only I could bring my knowledge into being!
Well I thought about it and I’m the type of girl who loves a challenge and I finally figured out that I need to challenge myself. I’m writing this blog as part of that challenge to myself so that you out there in blog land can be my witness. – it’s easy to pass/give up a challenge nobody else knows about.
I seem to have had this epiphany at Easter which is apt for new beginnings – I’m also a girl who likes to see inspirational signs when a decision is being made. 🙂
As it turns out I am having a temporary change in my work schedule for a period of 6 – 8 weeks, or perhaps more. During this time I will be coming off shift work and be in a steady 8 -4 Monday – Friday role.
Ah! Routine! Surely with this I can make some headway into taking care of myself. Evening walks, regular meals and sleep. It almost sounds mystical to me!
However this is not solely a “weight loss” challenge, this is about being active in my well-being. This is about getting out of my head, off my butt and being more present in the world and my life.
I believe that when one takes a step in the right direction things move, happen and change in ways unthought of.
Wish me luck – Lets see what I can do!
