At this point in my journey I want to take a day and reflect on what has happened so far. I’ve spent three weeks trying to create new habits, and also trying to get rid of rabbits that are destructive to my life. During the first week I did body weight measurements, a food diary, and size measurement throughout my body. Tomorrow is my first weigh-in day. I choose to only check my weight every 3 weeks because I do not want to become weight obsessive. My focus is overall change and creating habits that will should be sustained throughout my life.
It’s not about losing a ton of weight really fast it’s about creating a better me. I’ve nearly finished reading the book “Level Up Your Life” by Steve Kamb. This book goes through how to create a life that you would like to live. Many of us look up to superheroes, athletes, musicians, and many other famous people. This book allows you to look at how to create a blueprint to become more like those Heroes that you admire. For anybody who is starting out with trying to make a change in their life, whether that be Fitness, a career change, or is tired of feeling as if everybody else has figured it out and won’t tell you, “Level Up Your Life” give insights as to how to develop a life that you would like. I strongly recommend this to anybody who enjoys reading self-help books, or anybody who would enjoy reading a book about a geek who turns his life around from being extremely unhappy but financially stable to fully enjoying his life and also financially stable. Steve gives his testimony at the beginning of the book describing how he had worked in a construction job in the sales department. He described how unhappy he was in this job and that he went day today reading having to go to work. By making a leap of faith Steve then quits the construction job to go work in the music industry. The story continues when Steve discovers how unfulfilled he felt in the music industry job and that he takes a leap of faith to create something that he wants, to create a life that he wants. And with the success of this adventure Steve is able to share some of the techniques and wisdom two other nerdy people who just want to be happy.
But enough about the book. I feel that the habit creating has gone well as I am personally driven by goals and enjoy being able to check off on my list various items throughout the day. In the last 3 weeks I have been able to keep a food diary, perform yoga, workout, walk, play music, study for my exam, practice French, and keep up a Blog without sacrificing time outside of my normal schedule. I attribute much of the motivation to continually try and improve to both nerd Fitness and my desire to create a happy life that I want to live. I know that’s whatever tomorrow’s weigh-in brings I will still feel proud of the progress I have made in 3 weeks. Until next time.
