I’m heading up to Canada sometime today (hopefully, winter storm delays), and I am going to use this opportunity to refresh my weight loss endeavors. It’s going to be good for me to be in a completely different environment for a week. My girlfriend (she lives in Canada), Rachel, has been rocking a healthy lifestyle, and it’s going to be very good for me to be influenced by her lifestyle.
My goal is to stop allowing depression and anxiety to consume all of my thoughts. I’m currently not happy with a lot of areas of my life, but I’m not improving things by either doing nothing or adding to the problems (gaining weight, adding debt, or adding clutter.)
I’m like the Cleveland Indians in the movie “Major League.” The talent is there, I just need something to bring it all together. I can achieve all of my life goals such as get to a healthy weight, start a family, finish school, and have a rewarding career. I just need to be patient, push myself to be better, and slowly, meticulously attack my little problems. I’m a firm believer in the big areas in life are a series of little areas.
School starts as soon as I get back next week, and this will be a good distraction for me. Also, I’ve been adding more and more exercise to my daily routine lately. Exercise is the vehicle that gets rid of my anxiety and depression. Since I stopped exercising because of my injury, my anxiety and depression have been detrimental to my weight loss. I am a totally different person when I consistently work out.
