Today is Labor Day.
And I decided to work. I cleaned out my room and did laundry. I’ve lost count how many loads but in the back of my mind all I could think of was
- when will it end
- when did I get all these clothes and
- Can I still fit this?
Last week Wednesday I went to the doctor’s office and got news about my health. There’s huge possibility that I may have a thyroid problem.
Growing up my mom used to tell me about all the issues she had health wise. Her thyroid was one of them. She told me how she always had cold feet. Throughout the past years, I’ve had cold feet, or I’m always complaining about how cold I am in the work place office, and everyone just looks at me like I’m crazy.
I’m extremely worried.
And I know I have to make better decisions – otherwise, nothing will change. I’ve found it very difficult to stay committed to working out – especially if I’m going to bed super late.
In the previous years that wasn’t a problem for me.
I had a routine in place – but what’s been difficult is getting a new regimen and routine in place that I could actually commit to.
Currently, I am working two jobs, and taking on freelance clients. I simply need to better manage my time.
I believe this includes eliminating unproductive tasks and events that do not contribute toward my goal.
Today, I was listening to James Clear on youtube about several keystone habits and how to go about implementing them. It gives me hope again that all is not lost when it comes to health.
I was also listening to a YouTuber when she compared fitness, growth, and contentment. If you plant a seed you don’t get mad that the seed isn;t a plant over night. You know it takes time to grow, and in the same way, weight loss health or anything else for that matter takes time to change.
