Gotta believe

Monday, January 02, 2012

I had a lousy start to the new year! Family falling a part, there seems to be a dying love for my husband, and I am worried about the outcome of this year with all the chatter about the end being near! With all of that I do not feel like focusing on fitness and that is causing me to feel like a failure. How can I continue from this point! I just want to give up completely! So very hurt and upset that things are starting out like this! What do I do? I really need to seek some outside help, because I really feel so out of myself right now.

    I agree! You need to take care of yourself right now! I'm sure "working out" is the last thing on your mind, but you might be suprised how a walk around the block will make you feel. Just some quiet time to be with yourself & your thoughts. I think as women we are taught to take care of others & that it is selfish to think about ourselves, but you aren't any good to anyone until you DO take care of you! It's a hard time for you, I know. You will definately be in my prayers!

    You are NOT a failure. Life is changing, and the goal is to change with it for the positive. While fitness/workouts may not be at the top of your list, 10-15 minutes may be just what the doc ordered. The focused breathing, released stress/tension and heightened endorphins can help you get through the rough patches and give you time to focus on what is the best way to make the life change work. emoticon

    Sparkchantal, sometimes I totally feel like I do not have any common sense at all.

    the 'outside' is making you feel a mess, and you want to turn to the 'outside' for help? actually, it sounds to me like you've got a lot of common sense yourself.
