hitting that reset button

Thursday, July 01, 2010

I haven't weighed myself for probably as long as I had been absent from SP. Work and being part of the support group for my dying grandfather plus other life drama took their toll on me, resulting two separate episodes of long stretched battle against flu/relapse.

Let's just say I am sick and tired of not feeling my best.

During the first half of 2010, I attempted group class of pilates and purchased another DVD program. Again, consistency is the issue. Last week I signed up with the local community center and swam for the first time in a long time. I couldn't last beyond 15 minutes of lap swim. That's how bad my lungs were, and I felt equally good and bad about the experience. Good that I finally made the effort to rebuild my respiratory system, bad that I had let myself get to this awful spot.

    Getting sick should be a thought that if you don't care for yourself you end up not being able to be strong for other people in more need of support than yourself..
    Do this journey so you stay robust and can support people around you whom need you.. Sorry there is no cudos if you drop dead from stress or not caring.. This will make those whom need us strong feel more open and exposed..
    If your on top of your eating and exercising leaning a extra hand will feel like moving mountains.. Also lifes sorrows- what doesn't kill us should make us stronger and able to give advice to the next generations.. Our choice how things go down.. Stay strong and make Mr Aversity pack his bags..
