I did some promotional work, reached out to promote classes a bit more. But I have run out of steam. Too much time on the couch. Too much falling prey to my caffeine and sugar addictions. Too much sleep. Blah. Blah. Blah. I definitely have my down days and funk periods, I have never been officially diagnosed with depression, nor ever taken medications. I have reached out and talked to a counselor on occasion over the years when I get in over my head. This doesn't feel like the worst funk I've ever had, just blah and bored.
So, starting NOW (I know too well the tricks of wait until Monday, wait until after the long weekend, wait until after vacation....No. Now.) I am going to pull myself up by the bootstraps and get myself out of this funk and into the healthiest possible routine to ward off future funks.
For me, this means getting up earlier, working on my business EVERY DAY, doing some sort of exercise 5-6 times per week (even walking the dog counts, something to peel myself off the couch), staying off all coffee, sugar, and of course no animal products, nuts, or oils as well to keep me at my healthy goal weight. In my current funk, I have had some coffee and sugar, but I no longer eat animal products. Period. I do check the scale regularly and don't let my bad habits pack on weight. I am sick of yo-yo dieting, I just can't do it any more. I am also in this vegan thing for the animals and the planet as well. I started for health, but I have become an ethical vegan along the way.
So, there you have it. You know where I have been and what I am doing to snap myself out of it. Time for a little tough love, key word in that phrase being love. I want to snap out of this and get back into healthy habits because I do love myself and want to take care of my body, mind, and spirit. Speaking of spirit, more meditation and connecting with my higher self is in order too. I regularly meditate with a friend once a week, but I have a beautiful meditation space at home and plan to meditate more here.
As part of snapping out of my funk, I plan to blog more often. I have really resisted blogging, so that means... MORE BLOGGING. I have tons of great ideas to share around my passions in life - plant based nutrition, music, and spirituality. So, I plan to share more with you my dear friends.
