I did not attempt to install all these changes in hope to reach my fixated goal fast but I took one step at a time, finding myself a good balance between the future me and my old self. It come about as timely as it was the start of a year and I had so many negative energy inside of me which I needed to expel it.
So one of the changes I’ve made is to hit the gym. I’ve been visiting the gym for treadmills and step-by machines but I have never been able to sweat out the calories or to tone my body. I figured that it wasn’t fun to work with machines and besides, there wasn’t any intrinsic motivation for me to do a 2.4km run. It’s like working hard on the treadmill for days but just to find yourself running on the same spot, not progressing anywhere near your fitness goals.
Switching processed food to natural food and substituting hi-carb foods with low-carb and hi-fibre food like rolled oats and multi-grain bread is one such change I’ve made. I’m still trying hard to push away canned and packaged food and go for the natural and raw food. But it’s quite challenging given than more than 50% of the food in the supermarket is processed. But I’ve been picking up recently with my new experiments with wholemeal wraps,grains, vegetables and fruits. Look out for my day-to-day healthy recipes that I’ve created.
Spritually, I learnt to stop pinning the blame unto myself for the way things turned out in life and being unhappy with the way my life is right now. Pushing away all negative thoughts to make space for positive thoughts is easier said than done. But I decided that since I’m entitled to a choice, it’s either I choose to frown or smile even as the tough gets its going. You see, very often, people just forgets that after all we have the freedom to feel the way we want to feel and be the person whom we want to be. Just don’t get engulf by negativity. Do the Taichi move and gently push the negative energy away.
So folks, I hope that I could also inspire you to made a lifestyle change. It’s more than just picking new healthy habits but it’s also about renewing your inner soul spiritually. I also hope I could stay committed to fulfil my dreams and goals.I might document the transformation so stay tuned. Life doesn’t starts tomorrow or the day after. It starts today, like now.
