Bottom line - Lessons re-learned

Sunday, February 10, 2013

NOTE TO SELF - Read this as a reminder.

I thought I knew this, for me and for others. It hit me when I was in the shower. I often get epiphanies in the shower. I guess my mind relaxes. Anyway, it brought me to a place and time most difficult... when Aspen was dieing.

I know with all my being what was best for me, it had gone to long and she was ready. As much as I wanted her to stay with me forever she was ready. However, my man, who is always right (and I mean that, not sarcastically) felt differently. He wanted her to pass on her own in our home. This is what HE NEEDED. I had to respect that. It was so very difficult for me but I knew it was important to respect his feelings and beliefs.

Some how this weekend I reached a new understanding of both of our views being 100% correct and right for each of us.

Not sure this makes any sense to you. I just needed to get this out of my head.

Again, do what is right for you.

This is also true of weight loss so remember self that



Get on the treadmill 2 to 4 miles is fine. You do not need to go overboard but mix it up a bit with inclines and jogging.



and ...

There are the basics and I suppose I should add..

NEVER forget your pups are most important. They keep you sane and you need to make time to spend with them.

This is a ...

because you slipped up in some areas and not in others. Get back on track.

    Yes great Blog. Also sometimes we only process things in retrospective. I know that's true for me. It helps to spend time thinking about things that happen so that you can understand them better.

    Isn't it amazing how things can be come clear to us long after an event occurs? I'm so glad you can see now what your man needed when it came to Aspen and that each of your needs were different but okay at the same time.

Yup...I need to get back on track in all the ways you mentioned here. Now is the time! No more excuses or delays.

    Really good blog! Really good reminders. I need to get logging again. I will give myself a break through this move because I seem to be basically maintaining but to finish losing I really do need the extra exercise and to log my food.

I think it is great that you can see the goodness and truth in both the view point of yourself and your man. You are one smart lady... emoticon

    Very important to remember that this is our own journey, and not compare to others or pre-set goals. Way to go!
