My plan to “be better”

Standard

bebetter

When I saw this image the other day, it really spoke to me. I have always felt there is something inherently wrong with me and a need to “be better” than I am. When I saw this image, I knew I needed to do something to make myself better. I just didn’t have a plan. Now, I do.

My brothers recommended an anime called Knights of Sidonia. I was watching it today when a character asked, “Isn’t it time for our weekly meal?” That’s when it clicked! You see, the people in this anime have learned to photosynthesize and only require food once a week.

After hearing this simple question, I realized I should only be eating once a week. This morning, while alone, I completely pigged out on food. I can’t keep doing that. So, from now on, I’m only eating on Sundays. Sunday seems like an appropriate day to eat. I don’t know why, but it feels safe.

I have also decided working out daily is NOT optional anymore. I don’t care how bad I’m feeling or how bad the fibromyalgia pain, it’s no longer optional.

So these are my two new rules for a better me.

  1. The reason we binge is because we have starved ourselves. Deciding to eat once a week is setting yourself up for an impossible task, failure, and pain. Don’t take eating advice from an anime film. This will really hurt you. Please treat yourself like you’d treat someone you loved… Imagine if you didn’t feed a beloved pet or even child for a week. It’s unthinkable. So don’t treat yourself so meanly.
