So, it has been a while. Yes, I was supposed to blog at least once a week. Well, it has been more like once a month. No physical progress, but I can say I am getting my mind ready to get back in gear. (Is that was I said the last time I blogged...SIGH). Anyway, two of my very best friends moved out of state in the last few months. THAT SUCKS! That just added more time to my schedule to get on that treadmill. Oh, and we had temporary power of attorney over the most precious, hyper, sweet, opinionated two-year old for five months and two weeks ago her mother decided to come get her. THAT added more time for me to get my butt moving! My first thing I had to do was rest. I hardly ever do that for myself, but last weekend I insisted. It took all the fight in me to stay still. Did I mention I have ADD and my mind races faster than my feet have ever moved? Anyway, I have time to do a bit more than I have been doing.
LOL, my dog just ran as fast as he could through the house...like five laps. Is he trying to tell me something? Even the dog realizes I could do more. Well, this past week I took out my pedometer (ok, I found it cleaning out the junk drawer) so I thought I would wear it. The most steps I had this week was a little over 2000. How many steps is a good goal to reach in a day?
I have the coolest and sweetest hubby in this world! (Now, I must warn you there will be times I mention him and my comments will not support the previous statement), but I love him REGARDLESS! He is NOT a picky eater. I can say we are eating salad, smoothie meals, and whatever else healthy. He is fine with it. See, another excuse just went out the window! So, with all my excuses diminishing...what am I going to do?
Well, the excuse of working in an office. Well, my boss told me Friday she knows I have gone through a lot. Then said she wants me to focus on my health above anything else. What! Geeesh, another one just bit the dust. Oh well, the excuses NOT helping me win anyway. The hardest part of letting go of excuses is the reality that it was never the excuse holding you back. It was simply that other stuff...you know...low self-worth, lies, guilt, lack of discipline, self-sabotage and all that junk that clogs your arteries of success. If only I had listened to that small voice saying...at least try Getti. Hmmm, if I had all her positive remarks in written form I would have a library!
GOALS FOR 10/26
So, here goes THIS WEEK. That is what I am committing to for now.
1. Wear the pedometer and write down my step totals.
2. Drink water. Drink Water. Drink Water. Drink Water. Can you tell I need to drink water?
3. Spend time caring for myself and reading lots of positive affirmations.
4. Look at the treadmill and turn it on and gaze at the lights. (I am taking baby steps...DO NOT JUDGE ME. Trust me that alone is progress!)
A message for you:
YOU are worth the love and support others give or you give to yourself. Take off the cloth of defeat and put on that sexy self-worth attire. Start with a smile. If you do it in the mirror, you get one back! Seriously, for all that you have endured and for the struggle you are still in...YOU deserve a present moment of praise...not just memories of the past....
so this is just for YOU>
