No junk. No junk food. No junk mail, no junk cluttering up my house, no junk thinking. What does that leave me with? A healthy body, a happy mind, and lots of time and space… A cleaner, simpler, way of life… Ahhhh!
What is the definition of junk? From Merriam Webster Dictionary Online –
Definition of junk –
(1): old iron, glass, paper, or other waste that may be used again in some form (2): secondhand, worn, or discarded articles (3):something of poor quality (4) something of little meaning, worth, or significance
For the next- 28 Days – No Junk Living, I am going to go back to eating clean, no junk food – especially sugar and highly processed food. I am going to start a major decluttering of my garage, so I can get my inventory for my booths organized – and I am going to go back to thinking Positively.
These past few months have been hard with the shut down and the virus and the political unrest – my brain has become clouded and I threw caution to the wind when it came to health and fitness and getting things done. I emotionally ate quarantine carbs. : ( My neck has been hurting something fierce, but I honestly think its from all the stress that I have been carrying around inside me.
No more – before I wind up gaining ALL my weight back. I have got to start eating better, working out and moving my body.
Would you like to join me on this 28 Day – No Junk Journey? Please do… I could use the accountability.
Day One – Set your intentions. Choose what “junk” you want to purge from your life for the next 28 days. Hopefully, after the 28 days, it will be a habit and you won’t want to go back to it.
For me – the junk I want to remove is the:
- Junk food that has been making me feel inflamed and tired all the time.
- The clutter in the garage that needs to go to the thrift store or the dump or the garbage can.
- The junk thinking that has left me feeling less than motivated to do anything – not depressed – maybe, repressed?
What is one action step – an I Will statement – that I can take today to start removing the junk from my life?
Today, I will not eat any junk food and cook dinner at home…probably chicken, broccoli and rice casserole. I am also going to look up diabetic nutrition plans…
Positive Affirmation for Today – (Affirmations are quotes from the book The Travelers Gift: Seven Decisions That Determine Personal Success – by Andy Andrews… which I suggest is a good book to read during the next 28 Days.)
” The buck stops here. I accept responsibility for my past. I am responsible for my success.”
