It's a new dawn, it's a new day, it's a new life for me...

Tuesday, June 01, 2010

I find the struggling is my middle name these days. I have set some loft goals for myself, I have a full schedule, and up until yesterday I had no motivation and was letting myself feel overwhelmed. The thing with being overwhelmed that is my biggest problem is that I sort of panic, doubt myself, and then wallow in the feeling blaming my full plate (metaphorically speaking) for my failure and lack of motivation. I am finally taking strides to overcome this feeling of being overwhelmed, the feelings of failure I have, and the weight that weighs on me both literally and figuratively. No more can I blame being overwhelmed. No more can I wait for the actions to motivate and call to me. No more can I live like this and complain all the while not taking any real actions to change.

I have always had the opinion that if you do not vote you can't complain about the results, or if you do not help than you can't complain about the outcome. Well, I have not been helping myself truly and so I have no right to complain about this weight. If anything, I am the one who put this weight in office. Well no more! I am taking my life into my own hands, I am taking control and I am admitting that the only one I have to blame for the trial ahead of me is myself.

I have set up a few streaks for myself which I will start reporting weekly. I will be in here blogging once a week. The goal is to take baby steps, not let the feeling of being overwhelmed drag me down, and just make healthier choices. This is going to be a hard and long journey, but it is worth it and not only will I be bettering myself physically, but emotionally and intellectually too.

It's a new dawn, it's a new day, it's a new life for me...

    Finally, made it over here to catch up with what's news with you.

    You sounded good in your post--maybe a little tired. You know you are capable of anything when you choose to use your mind in a positive manner. You know the saying..."Just do it."

    Go girl. I'm cheering for you in all aspects of your life. emoticon

    'Feeling Good' was mine and my husbands first dance song as a married couple, so I automatically feel more positive and happy when I hear it. I hope it does the same for you too :D

    One step at a time sweetheart! That's all we can do in this life. But we do get to choose if those steps move us closer to or further from out goals for ourselves! Choose to be marvelous! And move there!

    Baby steps are key. Take one thing on at a time. Be sure to drink lots of water, move dailey and be mindful of what you eat and thats a good start. Nothing complicated, just three things to start :)

    I think your on the right track narrowing your ideals down from lofty goals to smaller baby steps. Good luck on your new and more attainable goals.

    I understand and agree with you completely. As you said, we have to look at things differently. This is not a contest, not a punishment and certainly not a diet.

    This is a lifestyle lived in the moment with healthy decisions. Healthy decisions that will give us motivation that will lead to our goal and a celebration of our life.

    Deep stuff I know, but for me it is working, one day at a time. So, cheers to you and your new found insight. Success is only a thought away!

    Excellent ideas and a good choice for you! This is your lifestyle and you have to modify it to fit you, not me or anyone else. Not everyone blogs daily but keep up with your tracking and see how it goes. Good luck! emoticon
