Day 30 and no change

Sunday, July 28, 2013

I feel like all of my posts are pessimistic... but a lot is going on right now. My grandpa is in the hospital because something is going on with his colon and he needs to have surgery. I hate not knowing what's going on but I plan on getting over to the hospital later today.

I haven't worked out. This should come as no surprise. I keep making excuses for everything and it frustrates me but I'm really struggling with staying consistent and getting motivated to just shut up and jump start a life of healthy instead of heavy... I'm also having trouble with my relationship and the thought of this being my last semester of undergrad... things seem to not be working right now.

Sorry for the lack of encouraging words, spark friends. emoticon

    We all have our moments, unfortunately its life. I am sorry you are going thru a tough time, but always remember it won't always be like this! Your life is what you make it, and while there are so many things we cannot control, there are plenty that we CAN control. Making sure to get some kind of workout in is sometimes exactly what you need. I use my workouts as stress relievers, I run, walk, cycle, lift out the stress....that stress is the perfect fuel for a great workout. It also gives you time to yourself and time to take your mind off of everything else that is going on around you. It helps take the edge off a little and when the workout is complete, you are able to refocus yourself for the day into whatever life is throwing your way. Just take it one day at a time, looking too far in the future is too overwhelming. And cheer up buttercup! emoticon

    It's okay...its life and unfortunately not all of it is rainbows and sunshine. I really hope and pray that things start looking up. But in the meantime, just try to do the best that you can regarding your new healthy lifestyle. It can be very hard to put your concentration on that while you are having to deal with other things that weight heavy on your heart and mind. Even if all you can do right now is go for a quick walk around the block, it's something. :) Thinking of you!
