Losing an uphill battle?

Tuesday, April 09, 2013

I jumped on the scale this morning. Unfortunately it went the wrong way :( I'm up to 159. I know it's only a pound, but I was so bummed. I've been doing really good with eating and getting back to working out. I did have pizza and a small piece of cake at my nephew's birthday party over the weekend, but I didn't have anything "bad" otherwise. I will make sure I step it up this week and hope for better results next week.

I had a very sad reality check last night when my best friend texted me to let me know that one of our former classmates had died of a heart attack. She was 39. This made me realize just how truly precious life is. It also it got me thinking that as much as I complain about that extra few minutes on the treadmill or whatever excercise I may be doing, it may be the difference between me being around for my family for an extra 5, 10 maybe 20 years. I truly am blessed to have my family and I hope I am able to be around for years to come. But I know not to take life for granted because we are not alway guaranteed another tomorrow. Take time today to remind your family just how much you love them.

Thanks for reading :)

    Those times when it's hardest to keep on going are when true progress is made. If you don't give up when it's hard, you certainly won't give up when things are going well. I have to constantly remind myself to "trust the process."
