Finally getting back to ME!!!
Saturday, February 09, 2013
It's taken a few weeks (but used to be years!!) but I'm finally beginning to focus on me again! It's been a struggle these last few weeks - I've been angry, sad, happy, amused, puzzled - by my thoughts over these weeks. My health has taken a slim turn for the worst but it's not life threatening - just a nuisance. But it felt like I shouldl give up on me -- that I've tried so many times and have always given up but I went back and read some of my old blogs and remembered (yes I've always known) why I started this journey - to better my health. Why do we give up so easily on ourselves? Do we think this journey is going to be easy? So today I'm back to logging my food and my exercise - I mean how sad is that - I"ve continued exercising but didn't even want to log it!!!??? Tomorrow morning I'll get on the scale and start from there...no matter what the number - it is what it is (I love that phrase!!) Then I will start weighing in on Sat for the 5% challenge. This time I"ve not done the assignments but I have gone to read other peoples responses to the assignments -- do you people know how inspiring you all are??? I still am proud of myself that I am swimming -- although that may come to a halt with my 'issues' of itching....but I've started going to the OTHER side of the gym w/ dh -- and while I didn't like 'sweating'...lol, it's another option and I did enjoy it. The important part is I didn't quit ...so I'm happy about that. Now to get back to food tracking - that's when I know I do best....so stop by sometime and make SURE I still am and give me a quick kick in the seat if I am not!!!
5% challenge -- here I come....
