I'm doing better today.....

Tuesday, May 10, 2011

I'm doing better today. I was feeling really down yesterday. I was disappointed with myself,f because I wasn't keeping up with the exercises, involved in the challenge to which I had made a commitment. I was, basically, beating myself up, for a situation which is out of my control.

I was very psyched up when I joined the Spring into Summer Challenge. I thought this would be the perfect time to start exercising. After all, I don't have to go back to work until the 27th of May. However, like so many other times in my life, a family crisis intervened. My time has been spent running back and forth to Pittsburgh everyday. OH WELL!! Things happen that often take priority in my life.

I was feeling so discouraged though, my mood was affecting my ability to deal with the things in my life which I can control. Like how much I'm eating. I was falling into the well of self-pity, which usually ends in emotional overeating. I refuse to go down there again, and if I do slip in, I refuse to stay there.

I'm back in my sane mind now! I wasn't able to do more than 20 minutes of walking today. I had to do that while I was at the hospital in Pittsburgh. I did, however, stay within my calorie limit today. If I can't get in the exercise, I will, at least, stay within my calorie range. This is still better than what I've been doing over the last couple of years; eating whatever and never doing any type of exercise. Maybe it will take me years to lose the weight I need to lose. So what? I've got the rest of my life to work at this. At least I'm working at it now!!
