habitforge.com stole my idea. Thank goodness! They made it look and work much better than I could. I’ve been wanting a site like this for a while. Habits run our lives. I know we’ve probably all heard this, but have … Continue reading
I don’t know if you are tired of reading posts about my getting in shape, but I’m getting tired of writing them. This will be my last one – at least for a very long while. I don’t want to focus on it anymore since it’s a new habit. It’s not like I focus on brushing my teeth every day even though I DO brush my teeth every day. Brushing my teeth and wellness are both just a part of my morning routine now.
I’ve lost count of how many days or weeks it’s been since I started my quest to get in shape. That’s a good thing.
Yesterday I started taking a whole food multi-vitamin. I’m focusing on vibrant health and more energy.
It must be working because I think I had a brilliant idea today. Some of the folks I’ve shared it with think I’ve lost my mind. They may be right, but I think it’s brilliant. I think it was an inspired thought and now I’m going to take inspired action.
When I wallow in the bad emotion of hating exercise, it drains my energy! It takes a lot of energy to hate something. It takes a lot of energy to come up with a million reasons of how I can get out of my exercise today. It takes more mental energy to feel all that than it takes physical energy to just go ahead and DO IT! So, ‘taking the emotion out’ means to do it without thinking about it at all – or do it with the right attitude and thinking that God would place on it…
I AM saying that some things aren’t worth good or bad emotions. They are just there. They are just something we do. And we just do them without thinking. They take little mental energy that way. Our metal energy is saved for the things that REALLY matter such as our passions, our relationships, and our new and exciting experiences.
I’ve learned that I should do, observe, correct without any emotion. This is not with just eating, but with anything I’m trying to master. I first do whatever it is I’m trying to get better at. Then I observe how I did without emotion. Did I miss the mark? Did I get close to where I want to be? Did I do part of it wrong and get the other part right? I evaluate my attempt this time. And then I make corrections. What can I do differently next time to make it work even better? What did I do right that I should continue to do next time? You get the idea. By taking the emotion out and just doing it, observing how well I did, and then correcting, I tend to get a little better each time. That’s much better than beating myself up about it.
