Re-committing to a healthy diet


This is the post I don't want to write.

On October 2, 2017 and on September 15, 2017, I wrote posts declaring that I was going to get back on the healthy eating lifestyle. I dropped the ball. I lasted probably a week or so after October 2, 2017, since then I fell on my ass. I didn't follow through.

Like I said, this is the post I don't want to write. It is hard to admit publicly (to whomever is reading this) that I didn't keep my word with myself. But here I am.

I forgive myself.

Now it is time to get back up again.

I don't want to.

I don't feel like it.

I want more junk food.

But I am going to push myself through the "not feeling like it" and purchase green leafy vegetables and start again. I am going to start again ANYWAY.

Here is my one year commitment (December 10, 2017 ----> December 10, 2018) --->

I now love myself enough to start again. I totally and completely forgive myself for falling off the wagon. It happens. I'm human. But now I am getting my ass back up.

1. I now reaffirm and recommit to a diet of red and green kale, collard greens, chard, broccoli, cabbage, carrots, apples, bananas, avocados, almond milk, hummus, nuts, seeds -- and others. After 14 days, along with vegan cheese and other condiments, etc. I will introduce whole grains such as brown rice, oatmeal, and quinoa. Basically a plant-based, whole grain diet.

(side note -- I did this diet before, back in my 20s, and I stuck to it for several years. I was a total rockstar about it. I was very committed, and was also in the very best shape of my life. I also remember the moment I fell off and decided to start eating refined sugar. I remember where I was, and what I was thinking. It was a conscious choice.)

2. I will jump on my mini trampoline every day for 10 minutes.

3. I will do cardio for at least an hour 3 times a week.

4. I will stick to this diet no matter what. No. Matter. What. (One day at a time. I don't have to think about the whole year, just one day -- today. I can do today. Whew.)

(Right now, my body and mind is screaming at me to stop writing and delete what I have written, but I am 5, 4, 3, 2, 1-ing myself right through it. Many times I HATE the 5 second rule, because I am going directly against the grain of my past conditioning.

So what commitment have you made that you fell away from?

Have you found the strength to come back to the table?

I am still fighting the urge to delete this post. A part of me is screaming at me to do so. As soon as I publish this blog, I am going to the store (less than a half mile from my apartment) to buy greens. This starts today!

So what does this have to do with The Heart-Inspired Millionaire Energetic Mastermind?  Well, without a healthy body to enjoy our abundance, then what's the point? I am committed to this process! Absolutely committed.
