I need to improve my mental and physical health. I have gained over 20kg in the last 18 months. I feel like all of the hard work that I put in when I first moved to Sydney has been undone. I often feel fat, lazy and out of control with my behaviour. I feel like my home life reflects those bad thoughts back onto me. I know these are irrational feelings, I’m hardly lazy. Lazy people don’t involved with their communities but I still feel these feelings.
Back to the strategy, I think a core part of a strategy is a purpose (it has to achieve something), a distinct measurable goal (to know when we’ve achieved something), a plan of what to do which includes tactics/approaches in how we will achieve our purpose.
Improve my mental and physical well-being
- Not feeling like I’m having a mental breakdown during an emotional time of the month
- No more weight gain
- Change my home environment to encourage incidental exercise (move closer to work)
- Get back onto a soylent diet (this should help both diet and financial as I’ll reduce my impulse food spendings)
Here is a diagram that might help communicate part of what bothers me:
I’m starting my strategy off small, make it achievable. Then reassess and reiterate in a few weeks to see if I’m improving.
