Update – Week 5 to 8

A month after my last post, and I have to say, I am feeling great!
I have spent these past weeks actually getting myself organised in my work, doing regular workouts and being super focussed.

This week a new Season of Hermitcraft (a Minecraft group that has just begun a brand new Minecraft world) started on Youtube, and it’s great being back and making Youtube videos again.

I have been getting organised with my Work it Out Community over on Discord, and making additional new content for our Patrons. We are also having our first ever video call discussion about this month’s book, and I’m so excited to have a face to face conversation with the beautiful Jenn and Vipress (Patrons) 😀

Today is what feels like the first day of spring. The sun is shining and the temperature is above 0° C.
It feels so nice to see the sun again after such a long time. I love going outside and hearing the cute little birds talking to each other, and even when I am inside, just looking out and seeing the sun is so uplifting.

In regards to my Journey though, I do feel like I am on track.
My fitness is slowly getting better, and I dont feel as tired as I used to a couple of weeks back when I went for long walks.
My views towards food seem to be getting better. I have been trying to eat a varied diet, but still allow myself to have a square of chocolate or a small handful of sweets.
I have to admit though, I did used to read articles giving advice about this kind of thing; eat only a small amount and you will be fine; its all about balance.
But… I always failed at it.
I tried to eat small amounts, but then my little monkey in my head would love it too much and eat it in excess. I don’t know how I have managed to stick with it for around 2 weeks now, but I have.
All I can say is, I didn’t stop trying. I have failed soooooo many times with my eating habits, and it’s been a very sad time, but I have been telling myself for a while now, that I always have to be around this food, and I do want to eat it, and I can eat it, I don’t need to put myself through guilt for eating it, I can have it daily, but I dont need to shove ten tonne of it in my mouth.
In other words, through telling myself that I am allowed it, and that I dont need to feel bad for eating it, that has helped me gain some control. Not straight away mind you (it’s probably taken a few years to get here), but the dedication has put me in a state of relief!

Anyways, that was a little written diarrhea for you lol.

I hope that you are all well, and I will talk to you soon!
