Bobbing Along

Monday, October 07, 2013

The past few weeks I have been just bobbing along. I am managing to stay afloat at work, but I am not being propelled forward. I am at rest. I am not eating particularly well; I am not exercising at all; and I have let my blood sugar get out of control again. I start out the day with the best intentions, but by 4:00, poof, all that intent is gone. The worst thing is that it isn't bothering me that much. I wish it did.

I have to find a way to the current and not bob along in the shallows, staying in one spot or even going backward.

    I find so often that your blogs seem to be about me. I, too, feel like I'm just bobbing along. How do we change this? The comments seem easy, but it's much more than it appears. I think we need to start with something small, and accomplish that. Let's try to find our way back again, my sparksister.

    Linda, you know that keeping your blood sugar numbers in line is more important than losing weight to look good and you know that you are worth the effort! You don't want them to get worse, or get bad consequences from that situation, do you? PLEASE get ahold of yourself and get back to the plan! Your Sparksisters are here to help...thanks for writing this blog. emoticon Send me a private SPmail if you want to chat further.

    I've certainly been in the same stream as you are right now. You know what works for you and you start each day ready to do it. I usually poop out earlier in the day than you but I give in just like you do. I find it helpful to change my actions at the time I tend to give up. Instead of choosing to eat, I choose to accomplish a task or go outside or something. If I'm bent on eating, I make sure it is something I haven't been reaching for. Just something to shake myself out of the doldrums. I hope you find what makes you shake yourself out. You deserve to treat yourself well!

    Though I'm sorry to hear you are "phoning it in" these days I know you will get into the mainstream current again soon. Why? Because you posted this blog. It's a step in the right direction when we organize our thoughts and reach out. Let's face it, for whatever reason, we all go through this at times. The doldrums are just that...a place where there is no current to carry us along and it's easy to get more and more stuck in place...but when that happens, we have each other to boost us along. The picture is adorable...make like the pied piper and lead those duckies into the mainstream! You can do it.

    I feel you. Whenever everything else in my life piles up and gets stressful, taking care of me seems to take a backseat, and I'm so indifferent about it! I hope you can find your stride again, because you are so worth it. emoticon
