Today is the official start of my health and wellness program prescribed by my nutritionist. I was excited, but now I just feel like barfing. Pretty sure it’s a mixture of nerves and early morning nutritional overload. It’s a good thing I am working from home today or one of my biggest phobias might come true: public vomiting.
I am horrible about eating breakfast in the mornings. I have somehow ignored every health article on the planet that says you NEED to eat breakfast. Usually I don’t eat a thing until mid-morning or closer to 11 a.m.
My wellness program has me drinking this green vitamin drink and actually eating a real breakfast. Small challenge for normal people. Significant challenge for a morning sloth like me. Mornings and I just don’t get along. Never did.
But as of now, my days will be spent taking supplements and drinking the chalky green drink THREE times a day. I’m using this week as my trial period/jumping off point. I’m scared to death that I am going to fail at this. I am usually my own worst enemy when it comes to making life changes. I’m a pessimist, so you won’t find me shouting from the rooftops, “Welcome, life changes! I’m ready for you!” You’ll find me in the back corner worrying about all the logistics, being overly-cautious, and thinking up ways it’s not going to work out.
Ready or not, I’m trying to visualize positive changes in my life. I want to make them reality. I need to make them reality. What positive changes do you want to make in your life? Are you taking actual steps to achieve them?

    I'm not a morning person at all and have never done food very well in the mornings…turns out it was thyroid related. I've been taking a green leafy vitamin power/drink for the last 10 years-the first 4 were painful every day, the drink made me want to vomit every time. Then I found out they made it in pill form! I happily swallow the capsules filled with the powder to disolve once it's past my weak picky tastebuds! πŸ™‚ Good luck! I've learned I'm just better doing small amounts constantly rather then eating 3 square meals a day.

    I seriously need to change some self-destructive habits, and I'm getting there! πŸ™‚ It started with my move and now is translating to being more focused when I'm at the workplace. Next step-focus on the physical wellness stuff!

    Um, hi. I believe you are my twin after reading this! I'm not on the supplements, but I'm not a morning person, I have a tendency to be pessimistic, I have a huge fear of public vomiting, I never eat breakfast until around 9:30 or 10am (I bring it to work with me), and I'm an overly cautious worrier, too! Wow, there is a kindred spirit in the world, and I am not alone! πŸ™‚ Thanks, DG!!!!
