Transform Your Life Project #22


Now that we have reached June, I am nearly halfway through this “Transform Your Life Project.”  I feel like I have been making lots of good changes in the process.  It has not been easy, but I know that making these changes will help me create a better future and a better life.

I made it through finals’ week and have no complaints!  It was stressful at the time, but I feel a sense of joy and satisfaction.  This week I have some homework to turn in and the final exam then I am completely free of school until the fall.  I may be free of classes, but I will be learning a lot over this summer.  I plan on nerding out hard-core so that I can be prepared for my “Computer Science Foundations” course in the fall.

This past week our old roommates moved out and our new roommates are officially home.  I think everything is going to work out well.

Something wonderful happened…  I went on a declutter/purge rampage and sent lots of unneeded possessions to goodwill.  It feels great to clean the slate and “start over.”

Here is one of the loads that I sent to Goodwill!

Yesterday we made a dump run and are beginning to see the floor of our garage again.  I know that probably sounds ridiculous, but our last tenants were not very organized at all (to say the least) and it showed by the mounds of piles.

I plan on continuing this process of purging and organizing at a rapid pace!

The unfortunate fact about this last week was that I didn’t make it to the gym.  I was so busy working and studying.  I know that is not a good excuse.  My nutrition has not been very good either.

I am at the point where it has become difficult to find clothes that I feel good about wearing and I have been feeling less and less comfortable in my skin.  Going to the gym seems like a daunting task.

How did I let this happen again?!?!?!

In my moments of feeling tired or down, I reached for the wrong things…  Coffee, the convenience of take-out, and I ate too late.  It has been more of a vicious cycle than I would like to admit, but I refuse to give up on myself and my health.  I have to live with myself for the rest of my life and I want to live a healthy, quality life. 

I NEED to take my health and my self more seriously so that I can make these changes.  I have bad habits of reaching for munchies and comfort food and I want to change.  I know that I have been saying this more half a year now, but I really mean it.  I just need to convince myself that I am serious.  

I think I am worried that I will try my hardest and won’t get the results that I am hoping for…  That’s the wrong attitude because I will not know until I try, right?  I want to clean up my act before it’s too late…

This morning I thought about reaching for my friends for motivation and support like I always used to in the past, but I want to try and figure this out on my own.  I need to take some time to learn what really works for me and my body.

I have made up my mind!  I am going to switch my “June Goals” with my “July goals” because I need to get to know myself before I can nurture relationships with others.  It may even take me longer than 1 month and  I am okay with that.  I want to spend this month of June learning about myself and what makes me tick.  I want to strip myself of all distractions, doubts, and worries, break myself down to my roots so that I can build myself back up again.  

I think that the sooner I do all of this, the better, because I want to be more sure of “myself and the world” by the time we reach the fall and I am immersed in my college classes.

July: NOW June!

Know Thyself Then Love Thyself

  • Take time for self-care.

I am ready for this!!!  Last week Christopher and I set a big goal for ourselves next June 17th.  I want to work on myself and prepare so that I am ready to run with it!!!  

How are you doing with your goals for the year?  Have you stuck with your “New Year Resolutions?”  Have you set new goals?  Have you created a plan?  I would love to hear all about it!   Please comment below to share!

Love, Joy, and Blessings Always,
