The day before leaving Hong Kong, my friend an I exchanged books that we had been reading. I gave her my Wicked for her Eat Pray Love. I have yet to read it and don’t even know where it is. I plan to eventually see the movie too. Anyway, I’m trying to make some major steps in my life over the next 6-12 months and I figure I have to be the change that I want to see I’m gonna change the game.
When I return from my cruise, I am starting a new eating plan. It’s geared towards making me a healthier person on the inside. 1. I am going to become more strict with my Portion Control plan by eating amounts closer to the recommended portions. 2. I am going to work more towards being a vegetarian. I’ve always wanted to try it, but never have. The plan is to start by allowing myself 1 day per week to eat meat. If this is too easy, then I’ll cut out the meat altogether. I started to research the Blood Type Diet again, but I just love too many of the foods that it suggests that I shouldn’t eat.
Next, I’m going to set aside some God time everyday. My plan involves spending my evenings researching and acting on “my bIg plan” <which hasn’t been announced to most>. Before and after that research time will involve prayer for guidance and praise for whatever progress was done. I was considering combining the prayer with my eating into some sort of fast. Of course it’s not going to be something super intense or anything to make me lose weight. I will still use many of the principles of fasting, but I compromised and decided the veggie thing was best for me and my lifestyle. Instead of me continually praying for what I want, it will help to show me God’s will.
Regarding love, I’m taking this step the slowest of all. I found love with my boyfriend, but we had to work on ourselves separately from each other. Hopefully, love will find its way back to me and will slither in and align itself with “my bIg plan”. I have started living the way I want to live and actively attempting to reach and succeed at my goals. I know all of this will be difficult, but I am excited for the journey.
