Normally, I usually browse the net for things to help my husband. I realized today that I don't browse much for myself. This led me to think that I probably don't do a lot of things for myself. I am hardwired to help others first then myself, and the time to help me just never comes around. Times are hard on a lot of people and I wish the best for them, but I also wish the best for me. Step one is to start changing the thinking pattern. I guess I'll work on that this month!

  As you help yourself, you will end up helping your family and others.As you get healthier, you then will be able to do more for your family.

    I do the same thing. Hubby and son are always first. I figured it out once when I was shopping. I had managed to pick up things for them and not one thing for me. I was even content with the fact that nothing in the cart was for me.

That has changed slightly. I focus a bit more on me. I deserve and so do you. We are important and if we don't spoil ourselves, like we spoil them, I believe our self-esteem can be hindered.

Too Little or Too Much

Wednesday, July 22, 2009

I always thought that if I was going to attempt to lose weight, I was going to have to exercise all day and always watch my diet. All or nothing kind of attitude. It is refreshing to see that this is not the case. I currently work a full time and part time job and am taking courses through an online University, so I have my plate full. Exercise and eating healthy is not always the most important thing that I can do some days, but there is less stress there knowing that I don't have to eat good everyday and that seems to present the fact that I don't need to do it. There are no restrictions, and it's nice to feel that one less stressor is there!
