resolution vs. revolution

you probably have been seeing so many social media posts regarding "new years resolutions"... at least I know I have! and I am sick of looking at them all.

lets be honest for a second.

we all have issues or problems with ourselves that we - or others! - would like to change. sometimes others may not even see what you're trying to change, and thats okay. because its all about YOU.

revolution: a sudden, complete or marked change in something; "the present revolution in church architecture."

resolution: the mental state or quality of being resolved or resolute; firmness of purpose.

my change isn't about what others see in me or what I feel others need to see. plain and simple, it's about me. a complete lifestyle change.

it's no surprise that I've gained a lot of weight. the majority of this weight gain is a combination of anti-depressants and hormonal changes.

my personal growth story won't be shared here today, but I can promise you that it will be shared eventually. It's a very hard and emotional story, as most write it off to being non-existent, but its very real and very existent in my current life still.

I've been reading a lot and doing a lot of research as to healthy living. do you want low carb? low calorie? vegan? paleo? ughhhh. so many ideas out there that it's hard to figure out what you want verses what is good for your body. I went with both. I want a full lifestyle change. no processed foods, lots of vegetables, and most importantly lots of nutrients.

I don't want to consider this a resolution because a resolution already sounds complete; finished. I want a revolution... an uprising. something to tell not only myself but my body as well that times are changing and I am not going to stop until its complete.

so heres my plan: watch my calories; exercise more; no processed foods; and most importantly drink more water. I'm all about what my body needs and how I need to get back down to the basics. rid my body of the unnecessary ingredients I've put into it for so long.

for now, it's all I can do to apologize for mistreating my body so poorly. I hope it forgives me, it's in for a lot of changes!

what are you waiting for? :)
