Strengthening my convictions
Sunday, January 03, 2016
My class is over. I learned quite alot about nutrition. I also "lost my way." The class took all my energy. I haven't been meditating, doing yoga, keeping up with the house, or exercising regularly, I haven't in a long time. I know I must have gotten a good grade in the class, all my assignment and test scores were great. But I let everything else slide and now I feel totally undisciplined and weak. I want to eat, and eat alot. I don't want to do anything that smacks of effort. Just eat, and then maybe nap.
I don't want to be that person. I do care about reaching my goal weight, I won't lie. But I care a whole lot more about being strong!
I want to be able to say I follow the path of the Buddha with conviction and know in my core I am the best me I can be, and that's great. I have no excuses left in my bag. I have a pretty good plan, not too rigid but structured, and I feel strong in my convictions that I will get back on track. I have been reading my favorite book on Buddhism, "The Heart of the Buddha's Teaching" and making time to be active. My biggest obstacle is myself and I know this. I know I will get through this dip in my path and I have friends that will help me. Thank you for your time in reading this.
