If you could go back in time and have a 5 minute conversation with yourself ten years ago, what would you say?
I would have told myself to be careful with your weight. 5, 10 pounds… fine! But! Don’t let it get out of hand. Care more about yourself to keep it off. It will get harder when you are older. Not just because you ARE older, but because of the things that come along with the changes of being older. We slow down physically by working more, in my case it was sitting at a desk. Having children can change hormones. Creeping up in age our hormones change too. There is NO getting past it. Care now, make good choices, make and keep healthy habits. Have a regular routine. By doing this it won’t be so hard trying to learn one later in life. Just stay active and care about those extra pounds and just don’t ignore them. Just do it! 🙂
If I could go back in time 10 years I would tell myself to be more disciplined about my job, and to try harder to switch off at weekends.
I chose early retirement 4 1/2 years ago because I was so unhappy and stressed. Now I can see how things might have been different.
I am very happy now, but I think I wasted a lot of time making myself miserable.
The good side is that I did keep fit. I had a regular gym habit, and have continued to exercise and watch my weight.
You know what is so great though? You having that realization now… I feel like it is never too late. I live with no regrets in my life. You should try too. Enjoy life now, make it even better than you could have imagined. 🙂
