Update day and alittle something extra.


Tuesday, June 25, 2013

I did my coreworkout yesterday went awesome still feeling it today. I lost a pound so one pound away from my first goal yah i'm so excited. I'm inviting everyone to celebrate when I reach it. Organization is going fine still work in progress. Snacking is under control finally.

Alright I realized last week what my main issue is and why I always feel like no matter what I do it is never enough. I'm angry about things that have happened in the past. I am working on forgiving myself because that is the main reason I can't move on from the past.

It is not healthy to live like this angry and stress is not what I want in my life and i'm making progress it is just sad it has taken this long to figure out my issues but sometimes what is right in front of you is not clear.

Now it is so what to do It is me that is in the driver seat and I need to drive my car so that is what i'm doing. I have let the past drive my car for so long enough is enough. The past is not going to control my life anymore. I need to take the lessons I have learned from the past and stop living in the past. Sorry needed to vent. Thanks for reading and listening.

    I'm catching up on your blog, that is such a great realization about letting go the past. It's amazing how these things line up close to reaching goals sometimes.

    " I lost a pound so one pound away from my first goal yah i'm so excited."
* Congrats!

" I'm angry about things that have happened in the past. I am working on forgiving myself because that is the main reason I can't move on from the past. "
* That's a big step.

" it is just sad it has taken this long to figure out my issues but sometimes what is right in front of you is not clear. "
* For many it takes far longer in life and far worse spiritual/physical health issues to do so. Some never do (I know this doesn't help you, per se, but I think it worth mentioning).


" Sorry needed to vent. Thanks for reading and listening. "
* Not at all :)

    Find a nice shoe box. Write all the past garbage that you can recall or issues that have you feeling upset and put them in the box. Dig a hole in the back yard and bury them, burn them in the fireplace, run over them with your car, hit them with a hammer or any other creative ideas! Whatever method of destruction to the box that makes you gain control is best. Then you can move on with your life.

Hope you feel better very soon! Love ya girl!!! emoticon emoticon

    Dear Julie,

Anger is something I struggle with also. And, changing my insides as my outsides change. I am so happy for you that you've been able to give your body the health you deserve. And, know that many of us struggle with different feelings. We can support you through this!

One resource that has helped me is a book entitled "Anger" by Thich Nhat Hanh. He is a mindfulness meditation teacher. You might like it, you might not. . . just wanted to share.

Best,
Janet

    Awesome that you've come to that realization. Anger and guilt are killers, and hard to get rid of. If venting helps, keep it up!!

  Venting is fine with me. It helps to clear your mind and gets you to a fresh starting point. Good job.

    I recently went through similar realizations, and I'm pushing senior-citizenhip-hood...so congratulate yourself for figuring it out and let go of the regret for it taking this long. Keep venting when you need to. We can take it. Congrats on the weight loss. Keep up the good work. You're doing great.

    Girl, you and be both are struggling with anger. I am writing 10 things I am grateful for every day. That helps. Keep venting if it helps. Cleaning the house helped me get over my fun today. I hope you find the right path to get through this struggle, and I will be praying for you. :)
