How I'm using this extra hour

Sunday, November 06, 2011

I think this extra hour is a great gift! I'm using it to Revive, Regroup, Repair!! 2011 hasn't just been a bad year...it's probably 'the worst' 365 days I've ever had. But, I'm dealing with it and moving on!
This hour is for ME. ONLY ME. My darn dog, kids and husband (all sleeping except for the dog) are NOT my priority for ONE FULL HOUR! I put SP and my SP friends at the top with me.
I have gained more weight. 20lbs on top of the %$@@& lbs. i was trying to lose emoticon Lost confidence and also lost some interest in socializing (because I can't find ~fun~ clothing that fits! I like to stay current and look good. I'm too embarrassed to go out with my fit/healthy looking girls. They don't care-but I DO!) I'm trying to see this as a mild set-back & not something that will become the norm. I will overcome this...I am a VERY strong person and extremely resilient.
I worked alot and this past year- more than I wanted to. I had my rock, my source of strength (grandma) to take care of on top of work, running kids around and holding down the fort at home all alone (husband travels CONSTANTLY). It was a hospice situation and she passed in October -so very devastating. I really/truly did not have ANY time to step foot into a gym or even take a walk through the neighborhood (although I desperately wanted to and knew what would happen if I didn't). Just pathetic! But I know what I need to do now . It's that EXECUTION part that gets me every single time though! I just keep repeating my mantra: Revive, Regroup, Repair!
I am SOOOO excited to re-connect with my SP friends. I wasn't sure if they would still be here. But they are and they continue to inspire me and support me (just what i need!) emoticon THANK YOU - you know who you are!
I'm going to make myself another cup of coffee, a healthy breakfast and then throw my sneakers on and talk a walk. Baby steps....one step at a time...
