- Everything in life is temporary. So if things are going good, enjoy it because it won’t last forever. And if things are going bad, don’t worry. It cant last forever either.

It has been 5 weeks of me embarking on taking care of body and soul project all out. It involves tons of exercise in form of walking, some high interval training 3 times a week and fasting. I started out with making sure that I eat nutritious food when I eat and eating lots of greens and what not.
My body has been doing very well. It has adapted to all the walking and is thriving with it. The first week I was doing way too much but I am now able to find the middle ground. My body is also responding to it very well, all this care. I feel very refreshed and energetic. Now the challenge is to continue with it during the rainy fall period and then winter. My rain gear and I are so going to be good friends. My body and mind is the main focus right now. It is me telling myself that I am important and that it is loved.
There is still outer turmoil that I have to face. I am still in my tunnel albeit it feels lighter now. There have been some light coming in my dark tunnel. I am starting to feel that all life is a tunnel journey. It is how much light comes in and how we open the windows or doors that is in front of us. Then there are times when I feel that I am surfing the waves, balancing and trying not to fall in the dark murky water.
The lesson in all of this for me is to focus on what needs to be focused on and that right now is my mental and physical health. No one else will do that for me and I am the only one who can do it. Everything else is just a distraction from what needs to be done.

Never be afraid to fall apart because it is an opportunity to rebuild yourself the way you wish you had been all along
Life is full of hurdles. I can personally attest to that. To stay motivated on a daily basis is hard and on a longer term, that is even harder. This week is a test week for me. It started out on Sunday where I had a busy day, getting ready to go back to work. I filled it with long walks, lots of preparations and what not.
Monday morning I woke up early to walk the dog. It was a 3km walk and when I came home, I did my HIT at about 12 min and then another long walk about 4-5km at 1hr 30min. Then night came and I could not sleep at all!
Come Tuesday, I was of course a walking zombie. I did not do the morning walk. I was exhausted and it was my fast day. When I came home, I made dinner and went for a walk. My intention was a very long walk but I ended up only walking for 3km. All this time I said to myself I will carry on. I will not give up and I do not have to go all out. Life is about riding the waves when a big one comes towards you. Riding a wave means you have to balance yourself and do what is needed to keep in balance. For me it meant to not go all out for a long walk and kill myself in the process but a shorter one. It also meant that I had to leave the kitchen looking like a war zone. I told hubby why it looks that way and I went to bed at 9pm. I woke up at 2am and had a hard time falling asleep again.
Then there is Wednesday. I woke up early to walk the dog. I was not really rested as sleep was fitful after waking up at 2 am. I made sure I ate nutritiously with lots of green and whole wheat stuff when eating. It was going to be a long day as there was a soccer match to be watched and a long walk and HIT to be done after work. I am happy to say that I managed to get all of those in and some kitchen cleaning too. Then in bed, I was listening to my body. It has been pushed and used rather well the past few days. It now needs some slower pace for it to rest so that is exactly what I am doing on Thursday.
All this time, I have not been straining myself in exercise that would make me want to throw up. I am engaging in something that is ‘easy’ and anyone can do. It is all about baby steps and making each day a good day. I am doing all this so as to take care of my body. I put in food that would benefit the body and exercise that would make sure it continue to work as it suppose to do as the years starts to add up.
I continue to be grateful for what is given to me and the opportunity to do what is needed to be done.
