I have let myself go. I came into a very stressful situation in my life and I used food and drink as a way to cope. I also slacked off on my workouts because I was feeling depressed and let myself skip them. I didn’t think the situation would last as long as it has, so I let myself indulge hoping I could find some comfort. Well I didn’t find any comfort, I only found myself feeling sluggish and filled with more anxiety.
I woke up this morning at 9am feeling worse than I have in a very long time. I had a headache and I slept until 9 because I just didn’t feel like getting up to face the world. I knew it was time to make a change. I cannot control the outcome of my current situation, but I can control how I am dealing with it. Today is day one. I will conquer the urge to indulge as a way to cope with my problems. I will instead drink plenty of water and make healthier food choices. I am also going to stop drinking for 30 days. I need to reset my mind and my body and get myself back to a healthier place mentally and physically.
This is not going to be easy. Once you get yourself stuck in a rut, taking the first step to get out is always the hardest. I know I can do this, because I have to do this. If I keep going down this road I will only become sadder and unhealthier.
