I really would like to be sleeping right now. I am totally exhausted and feel like a moo cow. The last few years have been such a struggle with myself that I am just worn out. I want to be active, I want to feel better and look better, I just can't seem to stop feeling like crud. I was up very late last night talking with my husband. We both have put on so much weight that it is ridiculous! With busy work schedules, school schedules, and my kids...I just don't have any energy to take care of myself at the end of the day. I am hoping tomorrow I can start taking time for myself at the beginning of the day! I did take a short walk this morning also. I hope I can start putting as much time and effort into myself as i put into everyone around me or I'm not going to live to see my children's children!

    Can I take a wild guess and ask if you eat a lot of starchy foods - pizza, pasta, cookies, cakes? You get a short term boost and a long term energy drag? Have you considered dumping the white foods from your menu for a few days to see how it makes you feel?

    Such a common mistake so many of us make: taking care of others before we take care of ourselves. As I read how you don't take time for yourself until the end of the day if you have time leftover I immediately thought what you write about In your next sentence: start the day with you time. Good for you that you are able to recognize the need to do that but that doesn't make any easier to make it happen. Perhaps you could identify specifically what you will do, how long you'll do it, and how frequently each week so you have a concrete plan to stick with. It doesn't have to be huge because remember that every journey begins with one step. You could plan for a 10 minute walk, reading a motivational story, planning your meals for the day, whatever you feel to be your top priority. emoticon

    Its important to stay positive, forgive yourself for past mistakes but make changes to ensure you can change your life in a positive way. Like MEGAMOM134 said its all about small managable goals. Focus on what you can achieve day-to-day and the big picture will take care of itself.

    Sometimes the hill looks so large you can't imagine climbing it. But if you take small steps every day eventually the hill is climbed. I try not to look at the big picture of how much I have to lose. I focus on how I can eat healthy today. Instead of doing on big exercise session, I do 3 10 minute sessions a day. I switched my goal from dieting to getting healthy, eating healthy and staying healthy. I am lucky that as I nurse I am surrounded everyday by people whose lifestyles have caught up with them. They keep me motivated. Keep at it, baby steps and it will all fall into place.
