~*~*Still Focusing on Me*~*~
Wow... What great ideas I have... It all makes sense when I read it but for some reason I cannot get it to happen... something always gets in the way... 2013 has found me becoming more of a caregiver for my father. We have actually moved him in with us, which has included many changes for us all. Dad is no longer driving so that means all appointments etc fall to me now as my DH is working 2 jobs!

Wow... What great ideas I have... It all makes sense when I read it but for some reason I cannot get it to happen... something always gets in the way... 2013 has found me becoming more of a caregiver for my father. We have actually moved him in with us, which has included many changes for us all. Dad is no longer driving so that means all appointments etc fall to me now as my DH is working 2 jobs! So I am still looking for a balance between it all... but at least I am here again taking the time to make this effort... I know that there are better days to come!
~~~As I began thinking about 2012 I realized that even though I did not focus on myself in the way I had originally intended, I really did take a look at myself at a deeper level. I learned to deal with issues that I have battled with my whole life and began healing myself internally on an emotional level. I am proud to admit that I really decided to take care of myself! The best thing I have done is seek help for my depression and anxiety! I started seeing a therapist in May and was going every other week... now I am down to once a month or so. I have learned alot about myself. There are still areas I want to work on such as stress and bordem eating. And in my personal life there are some ongoing issues involving family but overall I have come a long way! I feel like a different person! I am looking forward to continuing this trend in my life and I am striving to incorporate healthier eating and more exercise into my life again! I am truly looking forward to an amazing 2013!!
~~~ Starting over (again). I have let all the good habits get pushed to the side and fallen back into those old routines.
2012 is going to be the year of ME! I am going to take better care of myself and improve my health! I realized recently that I don't really do any of the things I used to enjoy so much anymore. So this year I am going to begin doing those things again!
The last couple years have been all about trying to get ahead at work, the end of 2011 proved to be a huge blow to me in terms of work. All those late hours, skipped workouts, and take-out meals... they didn't help get me where I want to be.
So, This year I have vowed to do my job, and do it well, BUT, I am going to say NO! more often and do what I need to for ME! This will definately be a difficult task for me seeing how I have had many years of trying to make everyone else happy!
~~~Well, here it is the middle of 2012 and I have yet to really take any of this serious. To be honest I have been having a rough start to the year. It wasn't until April that I realized how depressed and overridden with anxiety I had become! So since that time I have been working on myself mentally more than physically. Things are getting better but summer vacation has proved to be harder than you would think! I mean days on end to myself... all the time in the world to catch up on chores, and just be lazy... maybe a little healthier eating and exercise thrown in for good measure... Instead my sleep schedule is crazy, staying up all night and sleeping away my days!
So here I am trying to make a plan in these early morning hours that I can stick to once the daylight takes hold....
I know what I need to do it is just a matter of getting in that mindset, and really just get going!
Here is to yet another beginning and another chance at giving myself the healthy and fit lifestyle that I deserve!~~~
