I've realized in the last few days I'm in a bad place right now as far as my weight loss. I had a challenge to write about my dream life two days ago, and yesterday I was asked to imagine a miracle day where all the wishes in my life would come true. It wasn't until TODAY when I looked at my lists that I realized weighing less or being in better shape weren't on EITHER list. My priorities have shifted lately to my kid and his activities/school/teeth etc., my husband, my house, my yard, my sad little garden, my finances, my insurance, my job...everything under the sun except ME.
My nutrition, exercise...things that would really help out with the STRESS of all the other stuff...I've dropped them. Every so often I'll sporadically work out for a few days. I might record what I eat for a day or two. And then I realize it's been...checking calendar now...holy crap, no exercise for the last 11 days. Where the heck did the last 2 wks go?
I have really got to get over thinking about exercise time, etc. as "selfish ME time" and reorganize my priorities. I guess it's like on an airplane when they say to put your own oxygen mask on 1st before you help out kids or others...I need to make sure I'm healthy (and not sending myself back to the land of happy meds) so I can be the strong wife/mother/employee they need me to be.
