Nothing but Regrets!!!!!!

Sunday, January 27, 2013

I do.....and not just a few
but they say...


But I still have Regrets...and quite a few....but one of the Main one would be:"Why haven't I started living more healthier years ago....or why did I stop eating healthy and stop going to the Gym?? emoticon

In my late Teen's and early 20's I simply didn't care or knew anything about exercise....for real!! I mean who had the time?? After all i went 'clubbing' emoticonevery weekend....well..ok....naw i didn't......but still those 6x a year counted as exercise..back then!! Plus later...chasing the kids around the house counted too!! emoticon

Then came the early 30's.....and I started a serious job...some walking...and lots of 'barking out Orders' was required.....well...that counted as exercise.....right??!! emoticon Worked 12hr shifts...and at Night.....and was simply too tired......and still quite in shape back in those exercise was not a priority.......

I did go to the gym for a few months......and found a workout buddy.....but my idea after a great workout was "Let's hit Burgerking..or McDonald's" after all....I deserved it.....I worked hard emoticon emoticon emoticon

The 30's came and went....and so did my went from this emoticon to that: emoticon ...for a long time I was in Denial..... emoticon plus I totally stopped going to the gym.....

Too tired to exercise....too this...too that....the list of excuses was long... emoticon

I regret the many opportunities that passed by where I could have bought a cute outfit and feel pretty.....I always loved dressing had and has been a long time ever since I was proud of my wardrobe. emoticon

I regret the many summers that passed by without me going swimming....because i was too ashamed to get into a bathing suit...because i was too fat!!

I regret not eating healthier...because i was raised differently....

I regret eating so much Fast Food.....nothing but should not put into their body!

I regret not staying fit....and letting myself is so much harder now to get back into shape....

But I can't live with regrets forever....and that is why I am here....and ready to take my Life back...... emoticon I will succeed.....I will get there!!!
Watch and see! emoticon

    That's a big part of why my user name is "noregret"! It had a lot to do with seeing my dad die in 2009...and he had stopped living a long time before due to his morbid obesity. I didn't want that. Yet....have I lost my morbid obese state?


Not yet.

Sometimes there are bumps in the road. Month-long bumps in the road. Sigh.

But the road is still there. We just have to step on it again. :)

    Oh Taty - hugs emoticon

You are so right, we can all pretty much relate to this and now we just need to move on. You'll get back to where you want to be with hard work and dedication. You are worth it.

Now that you've made your regrets public, put them behind you, look at the lady in the mirror and tell her you love her. Tell your body you love it to for not failing you despite the way you've treated it and get on the horse and take CHARGE!!!

    Well I could have written that blog.... so true. If only we had foresight, and or if we really listened or believed us "older folk" back then instead of the "it will never happen to me " to OMG it did happen now what.
Thanks cos I too have regrets... still and probably always will but like you am learning to fix some of them!

    If we only knew then what we know now!

The best we can do now is to grab hold of the reins of the present and take that knowlede and run with it!

Keep on Sparkin'!
