Getting Better

Monday, January 29, 2018

I went out and got nothing but healthy snacks, I listened to my motivation challenge, and shut my kitchen down after dinner, and I've somewhat have gotten better on my cravings and will power. This is a great step for me. A reminder of how I was able to do it before. I feel better about myself, and I'm more confident of what I'm putting in my body for 'good' fuel. I still have a ways to go, but this is a great start. My oldest, 8 year old, Daughter was home sick today with the beginning stages of the flu. I'm hoping it stays away from my youngest who is two, and has some breathing issues. I'm not too worried for my oldest. She's a healthy, tough cookie. I hate seeing her so sick though, breaks my heart. With the continuing of practicing a better healthy eating life, I believe it's time I get back into that workout groove to. It's so weird six months ago, a rest day seemed impossible. I just had to work out. Now, it's like asking my children to clean their room. Nearly impossible. What happened? Sure, I went through a difficult time this past year, but where did the umph go and how do I get it back? Wishing everyone a good night, and keep on sparking!!

    By just starting, that's how. Just take one small thing and do it. No matter if it's just walking your steps, or doing 5 lunges. Just do something. I know that this easy to type and hard to do, but you got to start somewhere. Know if you just do one thing, you will be one thing ahead. I once saw a quote that said "Biggest Lie Ever: I'll start tomorrow".

    I so agree with this, it just takes that first step to get where you want to be. You can do it, Spring is coming, and so is Summer. All I know by that time, I want to be comfortable in shorts.

    Take care.

    I know what you mean - sometimes life just seems to take all the "umph" out of us! Start SMALL (like, REALLY small) so you can pat yourself on the back for getting 10 minutes of exercise for a day, then 3 days, then 2 weeks in a row. Once you've got a SMALL habit back in place, try adding a few minutes. It was the only way I could get myself jump-started again!

    You're doing great! Those are some good wins today, with the exception of your daughter not feeling well. So sorry to her that.
