Day 293


Day 293 of the 365 Day Gratitude Challenge. Saturday, April 22nd, 2017.

I'm grateful I took a week off from FB. I think it was destroying my mind.

I also signed back onto Instagram. Especially now that I know there's a feature to where you can stop certain followers from seeing your posts. That's a bonus!

My last few days have been me writing my challenges in Blogger, and only a few days ago I started using WordPress again.

I'm trying to be around more places that don't make me feel like an outcast. I'm trying to find more places that don't shame me from speaking my mind. I'm trying to find places that don't make me spiral into an even deeper depression than what I'm already in.

Yeah, I know my flaws. It doesn't mean I deserve to have others tell me the same. And what's sad of all is how I would never do that to someone because I know what that feels like.

Ah, the power of being empathic. You can tell the real from the fake, and yet never say a word.

That's cool too. The most popular people are usually alone in the world and have no real friends they can count on.

And their own "friends" will just scroll past, pretending they didn't see it.

Well, it doesn't spite me as I'm grateful for that as well!

Day 292


Day 292 of the 365 Day Gratitude Challenge. Friday, April 21st, 2017.

I'm grateful I got some steps in, though I must be honest. I don't know what I did to earn those steps.

I had the day off and I had no idea cleaning and moving furniture meant I went 4 miles, but OK!

Also, perhaps after sometime I die, and hopefully make it a successful writer, I want to let the people of FitBit know that 10,000 steps is only equivalent to 4 miles...not 5!

Day 290

Day 290 of the 365 Day Gratitude Challenge. Wednesday, April 19th, 2017

I know I said I would start a diet journey. But it'll have to wait a bit.

I need to set up the camera and such. I really wish I had more time in a day to do so. But that's life. And I'll let you in on a little secret. I love to sleep!

Today I am grateful I got in 10,000 steps in. I did 20 minutes of tread time this morning before work, and I did 20 more minutes earlier tonight. I made it 1 mile the first 20, and another mile in 15. Not too bad!

I will try doing the same tomorrow! *fingers crossed*

Day 289/108, Tuesday, April 18th, 2017

I'm grateful for having a plan. Or at least for finally coming up with one.

I realize I'm never gonna get the pay I truly deserve. My jobs will always be a Publix, or a Blockbuster, or even a YMCA, to where I work, and barely earn enough to pay bills, go grocery shopping, and enjoy leisure time.

I get closer and closer to it every day. But at the rate I'm going, I'll be 80.

That's OK, because there are far worse things I could be going through. Trust me when I say I am pretty lucky. And I am grateful for that.

But I also know success doesn't stop there. I think the key is to always keep going.

It's like when I watch the Lightning play. They will feel so confident in winning a couple of goals in the first period, they start to become so lax in second period, which causes the other team to gain lead. By the time third period has arrived, you're not sure if they'll make it. In some games they win, in others they lose.

I don't know what I'm getting at, or if I'm even typing via phone tablet right.

I'm tired. Time for bed. Night!

Day 288 of the 365 Day Gratitude Challenge. Monday, April 17th, 2017.

It's been over a day, and I'm grateful I'm still not on FB.

I'm also grateful to be home.

Also, Tuesday, April 18th, will be the day I'll start to record my weight loss experiment! After what happened today, I felt like not eating at all.

Day 108 will be my new challenge! By December 31st, I hope to be slimmer and lighter than I am now.

I need to stress less. That's my biggest weight issue, I believe. Because when exercising isn't even causing your metabolism to work, something's not right.

Day 106/287

I'm grateful I cut myself off of FB today. I need to branch out on my own. I'll never be able to do that if I keep allowing myself to stay tied to the site.

I feel I should still post a pic or something.

I will...
