Feeling Stuck - And I Know How To Unstick

Sunday, May 05, 2013

For a few weeks I was derailed from my healthy living journey. I gave up my healthy habits to emotional stress and knew I was doing it, but felt like I was just stuck. When I get into a cycle like this I kind of feel like a top spinning out of control.

The truth is that I know exactly what I have to do to get myself unstuck. It is just to pull myself together and get myself back to eating healthy and moving my body. - But sometimes I just feel like a 2 year old that wants to rebel against anything that is healthy for me. Even this - I know- is just a coping mechanism that I allow myself to fall for - one that has never been good for me in the long run - but when life seems to be throwing punches - I fall back into those unhealthy patterns.

I am not beating myself up about this (a good babystep- because in the past I would really want to hide in shame). But I still feel I am not getting my body moving like I would like to.
I have my fitbit, I set my goals, and I know all I have to do it put one front in front of the next and do it. Crazy how sometimes this feels like more than I can possibly do.

Really I am writing this blog just to get my feelings down on paper so that I can look at them and help motivate myself to get moving. Last night before going to bed I forced myself to go outside and walk around the yard for 15 minutes. I have decided that if I can get 15 minutes of movement in per day, then I will start myself on the roll that will get me moving more.

I hope that if anybody else feels stuck - you will join me to just say, today I will get myself moving again - 15 minutes - 10 minutes - 5 minutes - whatever you can do - is better than not moving at all.
