Each and everyday I promise myself to do better at eating and exercise, somehow it’s not happening. I know mainly because when I am studying I snack more, I get less sleep, I miss meals and I don’t get to exercise. Plus it doesn’t help going on a cruise where the processed meals are prepared for you after being sick for 2weeks. Well I have noticed the difference so since I am out of classes for 2weeks I am back at it again, reaching for a healthier lifestyle and saying no to the lemon cake and cocktails. I am going to try my best and change my eating and exercise patterns to incorporate them into my lifestyle and make them a habit. So all this week I exercised at least an hour per day and have been conditioning my mind not to eat the sweets I crave. I have been drinking more water and staying out of the sun. Despite how much I love being outdoors the doctors order says “avoid the sun” so I am trying to protect my extremely sensitive skin.
with time freedom At the break of dawn I rise, get ready and walk to the pool, swimming this morning before the sunrise as I shouldn’t stay in the sun too much. A chance to reflect on the peacefulness of everything as everyone around me is still sleeping and all my neighbors are indoors.
it’s not dark out the beauty of almost summer weather not too dark, not too hot and not too cold in the mornings. At first the water feels cold and I want to get back out bundle up in my towel and run back to my bed but I am disciplined, though I am only being accountable to myself. So for today my activity includes swimming and water aerobics, then I must wash my hair and afterwards reward myself by sipping on some fresh cut mint tea with a teaspoon of honey. No I won’t have pastry for breakfast this morning and hopefully no other morning. It’s a work in progress that will become my lifestyle.
Until next time ………..thanks for stopping by its always a pleasure.
