I did it! I reached by goal and completed what I set out to do.
When a new 28 day lockdown was first announced, I decided that I was going to come out of it stronger than when I went in. I have no control over the actual lockdown but what was in my control was how I would feel during it.
I set out to lose some of the weight that I gained during the pandemic, decrease some negativity in my life, and get back to some of the things that I know are good for me such as meditation, writing in my journal and movement.
More importantly, I wanted to see the person I would become if I completed this challenge. I knew that I would be different than when I started it. What was more important than my goals was how I would change to achieve them along the way.
The goals were something to focus on while I was becoming more of who I really am.
So, who am I now?
Not only am I lighter physically, but emotionally, mentally, and spiritually as well.
At my next workshop on Feb 15 at 8 pm, I will be talking about some of the things that I did during my challenge but here is a summary:
For my diet, I did intermittent fasting where I ate three meals a day between the hours of 8 am - 5 pm. I stopped eating at 5 pm and eliminated snacks and junk food. I also used some supplements for detoxification, neuro-optimization chiropractic care and the infrared sauna. If you do not have access to an infrared sauna, you can still do the challenge or come into our office to use ours.
I woke up every morning and I meditated. If I had time, I would journal and if not I wouldn’t I would at night.
I stopped watching the news and I disconnected from some people that were bringing negatively and drama into my life. I also did not go on social media before noon, except if I had to do something specifically for work.
I’m feeling more energized, less weighed down, happier and more connected to who I really a.m. Even my patients have noticed! For those that asked, I lost almost 10 pounds!
I encouraged you to join me. My goal was to come out stronger from the lockdown and when I went in and I achieved my goal. Because we are still in lockdown I plan to extend and continue to do what I’m doing with some slight modifications.
If you need help or would like to join me, let me know how I can support you.
