I need a life.

Saturday, May 29, 2010

Ok, so I'm working on it. I have hibernated for so long. I am slowing coming out. There are a few good days. I am leaning how to enjoy them and move on. Just say no and stay home when I need to. I have never been very good at saying no. People will like you if you always do what they want done.

Guess Iv finely decided I need to fix me and no one else can. I can say No. But it is still not easy. I like doing things for others.

So I need to exercise, and by the time I get 3- 20 sessions in a day and my regular stuff to do, not much time to do anything else. And some days it just doesn't get done. Then I get determined and back at it for a few more days.

This will pay off in the end, I am worth it. I want a life.

    Believe me, I know EXACTLY what you mean. I also find it hard to say no, and worse than that, when I say no I feel GUILTY. I am so tired of feeling guilty for trying to take care of me, but have not made much progress in that area. I have also found that the more you do the more you are expected to do. I have not been doing well with staying on my healthy eating plan lately and have gained about 3 pounds. I have to get motivated again. I can tell a difference in the way I feel both mentally and physically. I hope you continue to do well and wish you the best. And I still wish you were my neighbor. :)

    Hey girlfriend, you are so right; you not only need a life but you deserve a life. The more you do for yourself, the quicker others will realize that you have become your own priority. And I'm thinking the more we take care of ourselves, the more energy and stamina we'll have to give to others anyway. So when you consider that, it becomes a win win proposition.
Stay the course and don't give up because you really are doing the right things.

    My kids had a babysitter years ago, a teenage girl who was really terrific but talked at 500 words per minute with gusts to 1000. One day when I was driving her home she stopped in the middle of a sentence to say, "I bet you're thinking, 'get a life, Stacie', but I have a life. I just want another life." Still makes me chuckle - but very profound as well.

You can do this! emoticon

    You are right, you are worth it! Every drop of sweat that stings your eyes is a reminder of what you've committed yourself to: a life less unhealthy. Keep up the great work and never, ever surrender!

Sometimes saying No is necessary, and yes it is hard, but you have to set priorities each day of what you really want to accomplish and then do it. Remember you have to be at the top of the list, because as it was once explained to me, if you don't take of yourself then who will and the boys need you, so keep in mind in order to be there for your family you have to take care of yourself, or all the rest just won't matter.

    You are so right! It's time to put you on that list too! I know where your coming from and have had the same conversation with myself too!
