A Very Emotional Day

Monday, January 28, 2013

Today was very trying on me both emotionally and physically. I didn't think I would get to work out because I have a lot of pain (unrelated to working out). This pain has caused me quite a bit of emotional stress. I'll spare the details, I just hope the end is near and I get relief soon.

Anyway, thankfully I was able to work out for 23 minutes. It's better than nothing and I am glad I did it since I took a day off on Saturday. I really don't want to get in the habit of taking days off.

I'm thinking of making a vision board and hanging it in my bedroom. I think it will help me on this healthy lifestyle journey. I just have no idea where to start.

I have also pulled out a pair of jean shorts that I bought years ago. I thought they were going to fit me when I bought them but they didn't. emoticon I have gained a lot of weight since I bought them so I have about 4 sizes to go down before they do fit. I'm keeping them out as inspiration. I guess you can call it a small goal.

Here's hoping I have a better day tomorrow.

    Thanks everyone! I started cutting out pictures and words today. It is actually fun and I can't wait to put it all together.

Thanks for the idea about putting it in front of my elliptical. I love that idea!

I had a much better day today. Thank you for all the kind thoughts.

    Your vision board would be PERFECT in front of your elliptical!

    Hope today is a better day for you - emotional days can leave us with a sort of "hangover" so I'll be cheering for you today! I really enjoyed reading your page and being "introduced" to your beautiful daughter. I second JulesJet's about how to start on your vision board - you can also cut out just words that inspire you or that mean something special to you... or just letters to make the words you want. Have fun with it!

Hope you have a beautiful day today!

    Find pictures in magazines of places you'd like to go or things you would like to do as you get healthier.
Find quotes and words to cut out that represent the journey or the goal.
Pictures of cute clothes that you would like to be able to wear.

I hope you have a much better day tomorrow!

  I am using a pair of too small jeans as motivation too! Keep going! emoticon
