Starting tomorrow, I am waking up at 7am on the dot and starting my new lifestyle. I’m going to exercise and eat well. I’m hoping getting into this lifestyle will help alleviate some of the anxiety behind the PNES. Hopefully, getting into a strict routine will help me not worry about stuff as long as I have control over the things I can have control over.
It’s going to be hard, but I’m going to stick to it. Being healthy is very important to me, as we only get one life and one body. With all that’s been going on, I want to try and make the best of it with what I have. Maybe I’ll find new ways to relieve anxiety as I’m doing this new lifestyle!
Anyway, I plan on doing cardio and strength training. At least 30 minutes of cardio a day with 30 minutes of strength training every other day. The other thing I have to remember is that it will take time to get into shape.
I am a recovering anorexic. So I have remind myself that it will take time, patience, and hard work to get where I want to be. But I’m excited!
The first step is the grocery store. Oh dear, grocery stores are awful for me. You really meet the worst sides of people in a grocery store. It causes so much anxiety for me to go grocery shopping. I really hate it. But it must be done, so I try to go at certain times of the day when I know it’ll be emptier than usual. It’s never a perfect time, but there are better times to go. But I’m excited to fill up my kitchen with awesome goodies that are great for your body.
I’m also tracking my progress with this app called My Fitness Pal. It’s free and very easy to use. So hopefully that will be helpful in my determination to do this.
Alright, enough stalling. Time to MOVE!
