This year has been a year of major change for me and getting seriously focused on my life goals. I have been super motivated and positive and encouraged. My mental health has been better than I've felt since November. I have really accomplished a lot and I want to review that below. Today however I am really struggling. I have not lost any weight at all and have not lost any noticeable inches. I am sick of counting the days between paychecks and wishing I could speed them up. I am tired of saying "no" to my daughter so much. I am tired of not making measurable progress. I just needed to vent that because today I feel like giving up. Something I recently added to my spark page is really striking home with me today.
If you are tired of starting over, quit giving up.
That said, I have done pretty well so far this year.
I have walked/jogged 50 miles.
I have gone 3 weeks without sugar.
I have reduced my caffeine from 3 servings a day to 3 a week.
I have consistently worked out four days a week.
I have opened a savings account and deposited as much as possible in to it every pay period.
I have paid of my credit card debt.
I owe less on my car than it is worth and will pay it off this year.
I have maintained a healthy blood sugar level consistently.
I need to focus on the positive but for some reason it is really hard to do today.
