Regarding Fear

Thursday, May 17, 2007

This is something I am very familiar with. Even though I know I have nothing to fear, I still let it happen. Today I had an interview for a new job-different then what I have been doing the past 8 years. I was so nervous and scared about the interview days before it occurred. Now I am in the midst of being scared over the possibility of being offered the position. But I know deep down I will accept if offered because I NEED to do it for me. I don't want my life to be a lot of 'what if's' and settling for less than I am happy with. Getting over my fear is a battle I have always have and I don't see it disappearing any time soon, but I am trying to muster through and see the positive.

    I heard something last night that made sense at least to me. It is not nervousness or fear but adrenaline. Channel the adrenaline and let it make you shine and soar to better things. I suffer from anxiety attacks and felt comforted when I heard this. Change is scarey but if you never change you can't grow. You stay the same. Hope it works out for you.

another day

Thursday, May 03, 2007

the birds once again woke me. That has been happening for about two weeks-much nicer to wake to their chirping then to voices on the radio. I went to the gym. My feet (ahilles) was bothering me, so I only did a short time on the treadmill then most of the time on the recumbent bike. At noon, two co-workers and I went for a walk. It was such a nice day out. Luckily, we returned to work, just before the pain got to me again.
hope you are having a good day.

HI there,
This morning I awoke at 5:30. I could hear the birds chirping away. Actually I have been waking early all week, and the gym was on my brain. Well, today for some reason, I got up immediately and went to the gym. Perhaps my mind was still sleep fogged, so my anxiety level hadn't kicked in yet. I am pretty proud of myself for overcoming that obstacle. I am sure there will be more along the way, but I will take it one day at a time. But I did it. I faced my inner demons and made it into the gym. It is such a great feeling, especially after Wednesday, when I drove to the gym after work, but seeing all the cars, just couldn't make myself enter. My friend said to think of the cars as being in the other stores that share the parking space. I will give that a try.

    Hi, was checking on your progress. That is great - you have as much right to be in that gym as anyone else, don't be intimidated. The more you go the more it will feel like a second home. Also remember a lot of the people you see that look very fit to you may once have been where you are at and can be very supportive and understanding. Stick with it!

ANY thing is Possible to those who believe

Believing we can accomplish things like weight loss and good health, is part of the battle. It is a start in the right direction.


OH What a Beautiful Day!

Hello all,
Today the sun is shining and it is warm enough to wear shorts. I have on capris myself. Mom and I went for about a 20 minute walk today. It feels good to feel the sun on my face.
I checked out the condition of my bike, flat tires, need to get them pumped up so I can ride. I am considering buying a stationary bike. I used to have one years ago, but it became dilapidated. The eliptical I have isn't a very good one, not like the gym (where I haven't been yet-but that is for another time). Today is great.
Last night I looked through the flyers as I do everyweek, made my list, and am proud of myself. Going over the list, I scratched off anything I had listed that was a destructive item to my weight loss goals. I didn't purchase any of it at the stores today. Yee haw. Perhaps I will succeed after all.
