I have been experiencing headaches after 3 days of following my exercise and diet plan. I have eliminated sugar completely from my diet and also other snacks. I have reduced the caffeine intake and also stopped drinking energy drinks. My body has gone into detox mode and the blood sugar levels have started to normalize.
I feel that my body is slowly getting used to the reduction of these stimulants and the headache is a result of this reduction. The pain in the muscles has reduced as I have cut down the exercise routine slightly and just following the core exercises.
As I stepped on the scales I noticed that I have my weight has gone down to 85.5 kg. On day 1, I weighed 86.6 kg, this is a reduction of approximately 1kg. I know that it is not much, but it is an encouragement.
I have managed to do my 100 push ups, 100 sit ups and 100 squats. I managed to do the push ups in 2 lots of 50, I managed to do all 100 sit ups in on go and also all 100 squats in one go.
I have noticed that my muscles are getting stronger and I am able to breath slower as I carry out the exercises. I have cut out other cardio exercises like jogging on the spot and knee raises, as I need to give some time for my muscles to recover.
I have been following a balanced diet and have reduced the carbs and portion sizes. Losing weight is going to result from a combination of diet and exercise.
I was spoiled a little in the evening whilst visiting my daughter. I had a lamb samosa, chapli kabab, katlama and some noodles. I managed to contain myself and have a small amount of these snacks followed by a cup of normal tea. A small amount of caffeine has entered the body, but it will get washed out by the amount of water I drink.
I don’t actually feel guilty after having this light snack, as I know that I will be able to burn it off and it is not going to become a habit. This is not going to stop me from continuing with my 30 day goal of getting to under 80 kg.
I can feel a shift in my mindset towards positive things. I feel less stressed about the future, as I know that I can deal with anything that results as a cause of my thoughts and actions. I am now in a position to create my future and not let circumstances dictate it.
I was in a really bad situation before I finally made the decision to do something about it. All three areas of Health, Mindset and Wealth were all causing me a lot of stress.
I looked in the mirror and did not like the image that was staring back at me. I was disgusted at the sight of the belly fat that I had accumulated. All my clothes were too tight for me and I did not look good with the belly sticking out. I had gone from a size 32 waist to a size 36 waist, my shirt collar size had jumped from 16 to 17. I used to wear UK size Medium and now I was struggling with a Large.
In my prime I was extremely fit, I used to train in martial arts every day. I was super flexible, I could do full splits, flick ups and jump spinning kicks with ease.
I was really confident in the streets as I knew that I could look after myself, this all changed back in 2003 when I was involved in a major road traffic accident. I cannot let the past hold me back from creating the future that I desire.
I had enough and something had to be done about it. No one was going to help me, I knew that I had to do it by myself.
My mindset was totally shattered after the accident, I was working in a really high end job as an IT Consultant for Cap Gemini. After leaving Cap Gemini, I started to work as an IT Consultant on a freelance basis. The money was good and the future seemed really bright, but I was in for a shock.
My life got turned upside down after the accident as my family were in the car at that time. My children had glass cuts on their face, luckily they did not sustain long term injuries. My wife suffered broken bones and was in hospital for a long time.
I had to look after my children and also care for my wife. I had injuries to my leg and body, but I kept quiet as I had to be there to take care of my family.
In the beginning my extended family helped out, but like all things no one will be there for you for too long. I am grateful for all their help, but I had to get on with my life.
My wife could not walk for a number of months and went through a number of physiotherapy sessions and CBT sessions before she was finally able to get back on her feet again.
My children had to go through a number of CBT sessions to recover from the psychological impact of the accident. They were scared to get into a car and have managed to overcome this fear.
I bottled in all my emotions and did not attend any counselling or CBT sessions, as I had to be there for my family. This has impacted me deeply, and I am trying to make sense of it all now.
I was too proud to seek any benefits and spent money from my saving whilst I was out of work. I was out of the IT scene for a long time, so I tried starting my own businesses, but they all failed.
I used to blame the failure on others and circumstances, but I have accepted that I am responsible for my success and failure.
I invested large amounts of money on grocery and restaurant business which eventually folded due to various reasons. I now accept the failure as my own doing and am ready to move on.
I never wanted to work for anyone, but have been forced to work as a security officer to cover my living expenses or seek benefits from the government.
I am currently working close to 60 hours weekly to cover my monthly expenses and provide for my family.
I have come to realise that I cannot do this for much longer and need to do start a business of my own. I need to work on my mindset first or it will end up failing like the the previous businesses that I was involved in.
I am using the meditation sessions to clear my mind and forgive others related to past events. I am accepting all the failures as my own doing as I was involved in setting up and running the businesses. I had made some bad decisions and character evaluations, but I need to work on myself.
I need to let go of the blame and guilt and look towards the future. I need to eliminate the deep rooted stress that is resides within my cells.
I had to provide a little glimpse into my past so that you may be able to relate to what I am experiencing. I have got myself into a rut and I am responsible for getting out of it.
I am working on clearing my childhood programming associated with money. There are many incidents from my childhood that had made me feel poor and useless.
I had managed to defy these programs and land myself a job as an IT Consultant at a prestigious firm. I was earning good money and had a bright future ahead of me, but the old wealth files kicked in and destroyed everything.
After my road traffic accident, I may have installed a new belief in my subconscious that “a large amount of money leads to bad things”.
This may be the reason that I was not able to hold onto the large amount of money that flowed through my hands.
I am working on correcting this disempowering belief. The money that I am earning now is starting to last longer and remains in my hands. It’s not much, but I am grateful for having it.
I know that there is a lot of work involved in replacing my subconscious wealth blueprint. I have made a start and it will continue to get better. Before I got started on this journey, I actually felt helpless. I now know that I have the power within me to create financial freedom.
