I’ve started a Bullet Journal to help me start my Healthy Living journey.
True, it does take some time, but I LOVE how I get to create logs that apply to what I want and need. Once upon a time, I used to be very creative! My brain just works that way.
Besides, it’s going to take time and preparation, no matter what I do. One thing I used to do that I hated so much and was SOOOO time consuming was logging all my food, and logging all the food that was in my food.
So I’m going to have to commit time to living healthy anyway, it’s got to be fun, or I won’t do it.
Sitting down to construct my journal was so liberating.
Watching what I eat and how I exercise is just part of my journey.
I want more than just counting calories and counting steps. I want all of me to be healthy. And that means making a lot of good habits to become the healthy person I want to be.
It’s holistic. It’s all of me. Body, mind and spirit.
So I sat down to make my goals.
I want to EAT BETTER.
But I also want to DRINK FIVE BOTTLES OF WATER a day. It’s good for my organs. I live in a desert, so it’s good for my skin.
I want to READ MY BIBLE, EVERY. DAY. It’s equally important for me to be spiritually in shape, too, you know? I want to spend quality time in the presence of God. I’m going to need his strength. I’m going to need his wisdom. I’m going to need his love.
I want to SPEAK LIFE. I want to practice every day, and remind myself that words are power. I want to build people and ideas up, not tear them down.
And No Complaining. I live in a first world country where I can do almost anything I want, and I have opportunities that most of world doesn’t have access to. What the heck do I have to complain about? I need to keep perspective. I want to be grateful.
So here it is. Here’s where I’m starting.
I’m so excited!
