Suffice it to say, it's been a rough eight months or so. In August '09, I had surgery on my left foot, which was more extensive than the doctor originally thought. I finally got out of "the boot" in November. Then, on November 21, I injured my right knee. And, on November 27, I lost my dad unexpectedly, which threw me into a depression that I'm still working my way out of. And, just to add insult to injury, the week before Christmas, my husband lost his job. It's been four months, and he is still looking, which makes money very tight. For some reason, I decided to turn to food for comfort, yet again. Funny thing is, I didn't feel comforted, and have only felt worse!
So, no more. I need to stop focusing on what I can't do, what I can't afford, what I can't handle, and focus on what I CAN do!
I CAN use the stationary bike, and get a decent cardio workout done.
I CAN make wise choices in my daily food intake.
I CAN make myself a priority.
I CAN be a good example for my girls, and show them how important it is to take care of yourself.
I CAN listen to my body, and know when enough is enough!
I CAN forgive myself for past mistakes, and leave them in the past.
I CAN move forward.
I CAN succeed.
