Still trudging along
Wednesday, July 28, 2010
So I've decided that I'm going to get serious again. For some reason, I let a few of life's problems and everyday happenings get in the way of my focus and as a result I've kind of been just trudging along with my weight loss, not gaining but not losing either. Not sure if it's a plateau or just a result of my not being able to work out due to the skin cancer issue, then the eye problem, my son's graduation and all the family in town, etc., etc., etc.
But enough is enough already. As we all know, life happens and if we aren't in the middle of it then we aren't living. So I've decided that I need to really focus on living while maintaining my healthier habits and keeping up my exercise, too. My sister and I have challenged each other to complete 1000 minutes of exercise by the end of this month -- I'm not sure if I will make it, but I'm going to give it my best. That's really all any of us can hope to do -- give it our best and hope to do a little better than trudge along. After all, when life happens around me, I want to have the energy to run along side it and keep up, to jump in the kayak and race down the river (without flipping myself out of it) , to dance until the sun comes up and to jump, jump, jump with my baby nephew because that's one of his favorite things to do!
Here's hoping you all learn to make life happen for you and that you enjoy whatever bit of happiness comes your way.
