First blog ever...sorry it's not awesome.

Sunday, January 15, 2012

Well, I am making my first blog entry EVER. I have been sick with an upper respiratory cold/flu all week. I do not miss work unless it is bad and I went home early last Tuesday and missed all the rest of the week. I have been bored to tears and trying not to eat everything in sight.

I am incredibly frustrated because I seem to get sick as soon as I really get motivated and start working out regularly. I even got a walking partner and we managed to meet once before I got sick. This seems to happen every single time. I just feel like giving up. I didn't even get up until 5 this evening, what was the point? Feeling defeated and alone. Acknowledging the fact that I want to stuff these feelings down with food is the first step in a long journey.

    You have not given up on yourself. You now know you are the only one that can make it happen for you.

    You have the power to succeed or fail.

    You have chosen to succeed.

    Few baby steps complete a long journey

    Writing is progress!!!

    You are not alone and you need to use this time as a motivator. It is hard, but you can do it!! Walk, do simple strength exercises, anything you can handle even if it only for a few minutes. Drink lots of fluids/water. Feel better quickly and keep your goals in the forefront of your mind!!
