Gratitude Journal #2


In my Gratitude Journals I write about things that I'm grateful for. Per post I will talk about one particular thing that I'm grateful for or what has kept me busy thinking at night. I think it's important to regularly think about things that we're grateful for, because without being grateful you tend to take things for granted and once you lose certain things it sometimes is too late to appreciate them. That's why I want to, kind of, "push" myself to be grateful for things, even simple things, and fully enjoy them!

This time I want to talk about health. I am grateful that I'm (kind of) a healthy being. Lately I have changed up my lifestyle a bit and I am very happy with it.

I have been feeling not too great lately. I skipped gym for months and landed in some sort of funk where I didn't want to go to the gym, because I was ashamed of the way how I looked. I haven't every been this heavy and my fat percentage never has been this high. I am saying "this" and "this", but truth is, I have no idea how much I weigh, because I am afraid of what the scale might show me and I don't have a device that can measure my fat percentage. However, I am pretty sure that it never has been this high. Not really healthy.

I have been working on my health the past few months and it makes me feel good. It made me feel thankful that I haven't had major health issues because of my unhealthy lifestyle the past two years. I feel really good and when I feel that my skinny jeans are less tight, it motivates me to keep going.

I am a bit overweight, not obese, so losing a bit of body fat won't do any harm. Exercising won't do any harm either. I am on my way to get my body in a healthy condition and shape again and I love that I am slowly noticing some results. It's not going super fast, but each week I can push myself a bit further and being able to gradually upping the level of my exercises motivates me to keep on going.

I am grateful for not having health issues and I should not throw that away just because I am lazy. People who have medical issues would do anything to be healthy and I should not take it for granted.

I hope you have a lovely day!

And as a little extra, here's a song that is currently one of my favorites and brings me to a happy place.
