What's Been Improving my Anxiety Immensely

I haven't written anything on here in a while, mostly because I've had nothing to complain/rant about, and I haven't had anything heavy weighing on my mind lately. Honestly, I'm doing pretty good these days.     My anxiety levels haven't been...

Hello! Well so much for going easy at the gym yesterday. Whoa my arms are sore, more so my chest from doing chest presses, I knew I should have done 15 or 17 1/2 lb dumbells instead of 20 but whatever! I didn't sleep well last night, I kept waking up...

24 DC, day 4

The weekend has come to an end. Never thought I would be kind of happy writing those words. On the weekend, temptation is EVERYWHERE. Today I woke up and I just needed to weigh myself. I told myself I wasn't going to until day 10, but I couldn't...

24 DC - day 2 and 3

Day 2: so glad it was Friday, but Friday welcomes the weekend which welcomes temptation. I woke up before my alarm even went off, only like 10 minutes but that rarely happens. I took my 3 catalyst and drank my spark before leaving for work. I had...

Out for a walk

I try to walk ( if I'm not running) first thing in the morning. it helps me get my thoughts ready for the day. Today I was thinking...is this commitment or stupidity that I'm out walking right now knowing the rain could come any moment! I...

Self-Control or Self- Doubt?

I would like to think of myself as a person that has a lot of self-control. (Self- control meaning that I can control my actions solely because my ‘self’ wants them controlled) If this were true then I would be able to wake up to run at 4:30 whether...
