Struggling for a change

Tuesday, March 27, 2012

I have been trudging forward, however I have not been making much progress. While many people look at the New Year as an opportunity to make new resolutions to loose weight and exercise - it is now March. I think it is time to re-evaluate all those hopes and dreams of January to see where you are now.

Well, it has been a hard winter here in Colorado for me. It seems as if me or my daughter, or both of us have been constantly sick. Although I have progressed in some unstated goals - I have started grad school this month; I am sad with the lack of progress with my weight and general health.

It looks like we will actually have a Spring this year. I am once again looking at my cloths and the scale. I am hoping I can make positive changes on my journey to a better, healthier life.

My daughter started Taekwondo late January at school. I have decided that it would be fun to participate with her. So I started last week. At over a 100 pounds over weight, it is sad to see how I look in the mirrors. However, the other women in the class (all 6 belt colors or more ahead of me) are extremely friendly and supportive. My broken foot is doing very well with the thickly padded floors. My knees (I have had surgery on both at one time) will need some TLC.

    Best of luck with you knees and your broken foot, you really are in the wars !!!

    Go easy on yourself. You have a lot on your plate with Grad school, and everything else in your life.

    Just do your best to eat clean, no junk or processed foods.

    Fit in exercise as you can, be kind to YOU!
