learning more about me....

Friday, January 18, 2013

It's been a good week. I have ate on the high side of my calorie alotment. I have fallen off once and binged. I have excerised although not with any consistency. I need to work on that. I need to work on a lot of things but like anything else I do I am taking them one at a time and priortizing putting the most important at the top and working my way down the list.

I am learning that I need more structure in my home life. I have a 3 day weekend coming and need to figure out what I want to do. It's going to be in the 60's so I will walk, Get those west facing windows washed as they are driving me crazy. Hubby wants to go see a movie and dinner tonite.
I am learning to let go of some of the things that just really aren't important but I have been packing them around all these years just taking up extra space in my suitcase of life. I brought my journal back out and having been journaling at every opportunity. I will get back to where the words just flow soon. I am learning that this is my life and I am the leader of it. At times I have a co pilot called husband but I am in control. I am now anyway. Somewhere over 13 years I gave that up for the most part. I had put my life in park. It is now back in drive. I don't have the overdrive button on but I know it's there to use when I need it. Only I can make these changes. Only I can put one foot in front of the other. Only I can cross each hurdle as they come. I can do it gracefully and with support or I can just let it make me stumble and crash. I chose the first. I am hardheaded and stuborn and push myself in 80% of my life except with my weight. I have chosen to look the other way. Now I look in the mirror, am liking the person looking back at me. She has a big heart. She's a good friend. She has just gotten lazy and forgetful in this part of her of life. No more. I have a horse to ride. ....

    You can do it!

    It's been a learning week for me, too. And, like you, I am needing a lot more structure in my home life. I hope we both find a way to make that happen!!

    You just keep driving down that road, full speed ahead. You will hit some potholes but just remember to keep moving. Someday you will reach overdrive. It just takes time.

    What wonderful insight into your "now," and it was almost as if you were blogging my life as well as your own. You've inspired me to sit down and journal today - I've gotten away from it, too. You can do this, we can do this!

    It's all about creating a new good routine to replace the bad old one. You can do this!
