How to Start a Healthy Lifestyle and Stick to it — Day 17

I’m not exactly sure if it’s because I resolved to improve my efforts from yesterday, or because of some other, unrelated reason, but today I felt absolutely unstoppable. Everything I did seemed to be enhanced to the utmost degree.

I woke up early for a morning workout, but I actually woke up a few minutes before my alarm. I felt really excited to get down to work for the day, and I powered through the workout with tons of energy to spare. I even lifted a bit heavier for some of the repetitions–I was feeling that energized.

It was just an extra burst of energy though, I also felt motivated to go to work and give my best effort there as well, and let me tell you, that isn’t always the case! I had an amazing workday, and people must have noticed how good I was feeling because some of my coworkers commented on how cheerful I looked. I told them that it just seemed that way because I was dieting and had actually lost weight, but there might be some truth to this. I don’t believe that mental states occur without provocation–if I felt this good today, it was likely a result of all the work I’ve been doing on myself.

Great progress and getting more comfortable on the camera, the slimming white sorts are working a treat.

I finished this evening’s exercise with as much ease as the rest of the day’s activities, but after that, I finally started to slow down. Moving forward, I’m going to start closely observing how my mentality is changing for the better. If I do that, then I’ll be able to identify what’s working and what’s not and replicate how I felt today.

Day 17 of the Year of Change Wrap Up

Day 17 is one I hope to have many more of, felt great, I am using my early understanding of stoicism in work and it’s really helping. Motivational videos also by some high achievers help when feeling a little under-motivated. I hope I can keep it up and keep moving forwards towards my health goals.
