INside OUt

Sunday, May 20, 2007

Yesterday I realized that my inside doesnt reflect my outside. The internal me is a goer and a doer, and the outside reflects sedentary life. I need to even out both sides. Though, the inside me is also half full of self - doubts, and other obstacles which stops the other half from getting the outside me the way I see it in my mind.

  


Obstacles

Thursday, May 17, 2007

If it is something you are passionate about, you need to keep motoring through. sometimes it is helpful to try and break up the problem into smaller particles, and tackle the issue that way, one step at a time.

  


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.

Hugs....

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.

  


WOOOOOOOOHOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO! I DID IT!!!

Friday, April 27, 2007

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!
