I don't know how to juggle

Tuesday, July 23, 2013

I'm young. I always need to remind myself that I'm only 23. I have such high expectations for myself, and I of course expect to see every change that I want to make as soon as I start trying. Life clearly doesn't work like that, but I still have a hard time accepting it. I want to eat healthier, I want to feel like I need to work out in order for my day to feel complete. I want to do better in school, I want to keep the job that I currently have and move up when given the chance. I want to be financially stable so that I don't have to worry about money, and so that I can also stop having to ask for my mother's help. I want so much, but I almost feel like I can't do it all at once. Am I supposed to tackle one then move on to the next one or am I supposed to do a little of each? How do people do this? How come I can't do this? What do you chose first? What is top priority?

    It's always hard starting out as an adult, but you are where we older girls wish we could wind the clock back & be again.
    I will tell you what I'd tell the young me if I could go back & kick her in the pants & wake her up.

    I'd say it's scary yes, but look at it as an adventure ! You are the captain charting the course for your whole life the choices you make now will decided your happiness & security in the future. So pull up your boot straps now while your young & give it ALL you have & you'll reap the benefits when you have less energy & are older.

    NEVER settle for second best . Don't just take any guy that shows you attention .because you're lonely.You'll suffer for it. Show the world No matter what size you are that you ARE somebody worth knowing ! When the right guy comes along, & he will , that appreciates you then hitch your wagon to him & not before !

    ENJOY your youth & freedom . The world is your canvas ! Explore it, live while you are free to do so.

    Work is hard , balancing it all is HARD , but settling for less & not putting in enough effort will give you a less than fulfilling life & that is HARDER for a LONG time !!!
    Make a plan start with some small goals. You can't drop 10 lbs in a week in a healthy way, but it is possible to drop 75lbs. in a year & a year flys by & that will make a BIG difference in your appearance. 1 lb. a week for 10 weeks is 10 lbs.then you sill have over 40 weeks to go in the year & it's attainable ! So start with 10min. of exercise a day, weekly, cut portion sizes,by a little , add a little more veggie to the beginning of a meal.Slow down when you eat to become fuller faster.Little steps is what will lead you to the BIG goal ! If you do too much you won't be able to keep it up & you'll quit. Steps forward ,even smaller are MUCH better than big steps forward & then back again. Just keep moving forward & you'll get there. Make sure to read the success stories on this site, too.

    Spark Coach is free for a week & really helped me to start setting small goals & get focused & after the week it's very affordable.

    Start saying I can & I will NO EXCUSES ! emoticon You ARE stronger than you think !
