I am overweight.
No excuses. Just a fact.
Eating is my coping mechanism . . .
- Stressed out from work, I eat.
- Frustrated with my girls, I eat.
- Bored with doing the same things, I eat.
Some people drink. Others do drugs. Each of these are detrimental, to varying degrees. In the end, we are damaging our physical bodies as an escape from things in our lives we cannot control.
As I’ve been working on the Adult Enrichment Project over the last year and a half, I’ve found that it has also inspired me.
There are three things that pull me from my every day life that involve no calories — my girls, learning and creating. So the Adult Enrichment Project has helped me. When I am learning or creating, I am happy. I feel at peace with myself. Problems fade away.
However, I am interested in doing more. As part of my yearly new year resolution, I am going to be healthier (not focus on weight loss). I am planning on creating more and move beyond the Adult Enrichment Project. I will continue to release badge programs and supplements, but I have so much more to create and share that one platform isn’t enough.
My second resolution involves you. I wish for you to join me to find something you are so passionate about that you can turn away from old destructive habits. Discover a new year in 2013 and embrace a new you.
