Ever since watching Jim Carey’s Yes Man film, I realised that I was close to being him at the start of the film.
My friend told me to read the book it is based on by Danny Wallace. It also changed my thoughts. http://www.amazon.co.uk/Yes-Man-Danny-Wallace/dp/0091896746/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1340097934&sr=8-1
I read that book last year whilst on holiday and it definitely opened my life for the better. I got up to watch the sunrise. I performed yoga on the beach. I cycled whilst on holiday.
Coming home and the old ways set back in. The daily routine and boring job etc. It’s hard to be positive all the time!
But I read/listen a fair bit of motivational books and over time it has an effect. This year I have made a real life change to get my fitness up. At 44 it’s surprising how easy it is to lounge about and the weight piles on. So I joined a gym (which I go to at least twice a week). I cycle a lot more. I even started swimming in lakes and rivers (another of my goals).
This is all to combat my lethargy and tiredness soo I can do more things. And it’s working. I feel more energised, more alert and weigh less.
This is part of a long term, life changing goal. There are no such things as diets or fitness regimes. There is a lifestyle choice of healthy eating and living.
It’s hard at times. I could do with eating and drinking less. But it’s a start and it won’t stop.
Trust me, it gets a lot harder to lose the weight and stay motivated the older you get so start now. Life isn’t a long, ever lasting path. I still feel like my 20 plus years of adulthood have gone in a few years. And it seems a waste. I am changing that now!
