Today is Day One (I Will Conquer)

conquer

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.

Feel free to post a motivational comment to help get me started on my road back to happiness.
