2´nd day of a 2´nd life

Wednesday, January 05, 2011

2010 did not go as planned. Much went out of control, also the initial achieved weight loss during the first half of the year. Life suddenly became extremely stressfull and I did not manage to stay in control and achieve my goals. August to December went totally down the drain due to endless challenges, stressfactors and obstacles hitting hard from all directions.

Yesterday was the first day of my new life, in a new city, on a new continent, Looking for a new apartment.
I do think I found something nice, and I will go back today and compare it to similar places I found on the internet last night.
I went out shopping for starting up a new life. Bought different spiced sauces for mixing with vegetables to make tasty dishes.
.............And vegetables............ Lots of vegetables.
Now I have a life all on my own, there is absolutely no excuseat all for anything to creep into my fridge. And if it is not in the fridge there is less chance for jumping into my mouth.

This is a refreshing new start. There is no excuse for not exercising, I will only have the commitments in my life that I add myself. I had created so many tasks in my life, that there suddenly was no time and space for myself. I had trained a whole group of people to expect 100 % support from my hand, and during the last 20 years, suddenlythere was no room, space or air left for me.

I have left it all behind me, and there is me and only me - at least for the next year. Then I will evaluate and decide if I will go back to Europe - og stay here.

And it will probably also be more motivating stepping on a scale here - the numbers goes down much faster when doing it in pounds instead for kilos!

So today is the second day of my second life, a good way of starting a streak.
Sweets and alcohol have gone out on seperate lines in my food tracker, and should preferably be 0.
Meditation and mindfullness can now be a part of a fully undisturbed life both morning and evening, if I put the phone on silent.

I have now created a life full of new posibilities and options, there is only me to decide what will be in it and what will not.

I will buy a scale today, and start all over with the weight ticker ...- in pounds! .....
Now the opportunity is here, and it is mine to take.

What a great way to start a new year!
