Patience in not in my vocabulary

Monday, September 13, 2010

Looking back, I wish I could remember the patience that allowed me to be happy with 1-2 lb losses per week, with slowly increasing the time and resistance on the recumbent bike, but I can't seem to gather that memory and put it into play. Okay, I had my tummy tuck early AM Friday... home shortly before 1 PM. Don't remember much from Friday. The highlight of Sat. was taking a shower. Sunday I found I could almost eliminate pain and anti-cramping meds.... saved them for bedtime and am sleeping well.
Took a 20 minute walk around the block with DH today. So what's wrong with the picture? Not much, except I would really like to go to Yoga on Thursday and know I won't be able to. I want to get my bike out and go for a ride tomorrow...isn't going to happen. Want to walk with upright posture... not a chance until I see doc tomorrow and then I don't know for sure when. I need to remember how to be still... and .... well, I just remembered a prayer:" God, please give me patience. And I want it now!"

    Patience is a tough one. I'm sure you have a good affirmation to help you claim and manifest it. It won't be long. Really.

Take extra good care of yourself. Maybe now would be a great time for extra meditation, reading a novel, sudoku, needle work, jigsaw puzzle, and telephoning a friend.
