I am going to be honest with you heroes. I did not drink enough water today. It’s the first day that I ave to shame my head down and feel horrible for not doing it
In terms of nutrition, today has been a huge bust. I started today in a bad way. I had a very bad experience at the Post Office, which I will be discussing tomorrow, and that led me to just being in a bad mood. It just felt like it was one thing after the other with people on the street just grating on me. It led me disgusted with humans.
The bad mood led to donuts, cheese danish, and a walnut brownie. And then, I grabbed a Dr. Pepper just to round it out.
I will be heading into work shortly, and that will force me to drink bottles of water. I may need to pick up a bottle of water before I head in to just get myself started, or maybe I’ll head over to Starbucks and drink the water there instead of coffee. (I did already have soda and donuts, I don’t really need coffee).
Moving forward, I need to focus a lot more on health and nutrition. I need to specifically go out and buy food which is the start of things. I have not bought food for three weeks or so, and granted I spent a ton of money last time, but I am down to the bare bones again.
My fitness needs to move forward too. After going to the gym one day this week, I have been offset by life. A single week of mistakes is alright, but I need to make sure that I do not turn everything into a habit. That will be where things move down considerably.
Where I stand is not a good place, but it could quickly become that. I need to reorient myself. I need to look forward and see the person that I want to be. He’s someone who does drink water. He passes the cookies. He doesn’t buy soda. He’s the guy who goes to the gym every day.
It’s a slow process to change. You can’t always be hit on the head and just know and make them. I’ve had the best changes happen when I take it slow. This blog post is a daily post because I just started getting up and writing. My second novella is almost done because I started writing a little bit every day. The nutrition and health changes are a bit harder because it’s on me to do the work. But it’s not that different, really. I was the one doing the writing too.
Tomorrow will be a new day, and I will rise to meet it. It’ll be a bit of a trial just like every other one, but at the very least I know I’m still in the right direction. It makes living this life easier. I know I can do this.
