I have found myself in "a place" where I could really mess up! I am discouraged at work, suffering from allergies and a spring cold, and facing the final big financial obligations of the school year (tuition, living expenses for the kids, last fuel fills, state taxes!)
To this point, sparkpeople has helped me be distracted and motivated. I could spend only so much time worrying, so much time working, and the rest of the time...exercising, tracking, cooking, and visiting!
This week I didn't lose any weight (but, didn't gain), wasn't motivated to get out to walk, and found myself feeling a little blue. Today I stayed home to rest and recover from a cold. The time to myself has helped me get motivated again. I didn't actually fall down, but stumbled and feel I can come back. I will go back to dedicating all life issues with the proper proportion ( with me getting a little bigger cut of the pie). There is a light at the end of the tunnel! There is support all around! I will stay away from other people's speeding down career paths (and focus on the important things in a school), places with negative energies, and depressing situations. I will drink water, track, share experiences with sparkfriends, move about, and enjoy my small town and all the people in it!
And now I will meet the demands of my pup, Jessica, who is trying to crawl into my lap. She wants to be a friend-and she is such a good one!
