Hello, again, my friends.
Today I’m writing a blog in a bit of pissed-off place. I’m not pissed because something or someone had pissed me off. I’m pissed because I’m on day 2 of eating very clean and restricting my calories to 1800 a day. I’ve struggled to hit my sweet spot with my nutrition this last 6 to 12 months.
I’ve been working out three times a week, though for six months straight. My diet hasn’t been terrible, but I’ve only been able to apply myself at around 70% of where I need to be to achieve my goals. It’s like the twelfth hundred time I’ve started this journey, so I’m not making any wild claims of what I’m going to achieve, but I do feel very motivated at the moment to hit my nutrition goals.
So hard, I’m hangry!
For those who don’t know what hangry means I’ll explain. It means I’m so hungry. I’m angry. Haha! Thing is I’m not that hungry. Thankfully I’ve been fueling myself enough so I do not hit that point, but the change is playing up on my emotions. I’m a little tired, a little shaky and I do feel short-tempered. No pain, no gain though, eh?
I’m actually on day three (See I told you I was jaded) and I’ve hit the crossroads. I can stay focused and strong and ride it out. Or I could get me a lot of nosh and chuck it down my jugular and restore all my bodily sensations very quickly.
I’m not going there, though. Today I mean business. I’m not falling at this early stage, I need to see through a few more days, and then these sensations should calm down, and my sugar levels should level out more. That’s when this all gets a lot easier.
So why blog about it? Well, I’m verbalizing my thoughts. I’m doing this because it may help someone else. If you are on a health kick and you find these moments tough then hang in there. I get that you want to bail. I understand that maybe you think “Is it really worth it?”
The short answer to that question is yes – yes, it is.
Even though we are spiritual beings having a human experience, that doesn’t give us the right to abuse our bodies. Our bodies are an instrument. This instrument will help us take on a higher level of well being if we take care of it. If we fine-tune that instrument, then it’s vibrations will be much more in tune with the universe. The negative voices that can haunt our inner wellbeing will naturally become quieter if we are much healthier. The healthier we are, the better we can live this human experience.
So today’s blog is clear. As Trigger once said in Only Fools and Horses. “Look after your broom”. Today I’m giving you a shoutout to look after your body. Because unlike Trig’s broom you can’t replace the head and the handle umpteenth times. If you are on your journey looking after your physical body, then stick at it – I promise to do the same.
Till next time, take care.
All the best,
