Things really ARE easier...
Tuesday, January 14, 2014
I have been whining lately about how hard things seems to be at this time, but guess what? Compared to three years ago things are much, much easier. Not lugging around twice my optimum weight makes everything (and I do mean EVERYTHING) easier. Walking around the grocery store is easier, taking the dog for his walks is easier, heck, breathing is easier. Sometimes I just need to stop and remember how far I have come and how much it is worth the effort and dedication. Yes, maintenance can be a balancing act, and sometimes I struggle to find that balance, but it is worth the struggle. Being fit and healthy is a million times better than fat, sick, and slowly dying. I have to remember that I enjoy my life the way it is now. I enjoy being alive!
So, a nice walk with the dog this morning, followed by walking to get blood work done. I went the long way around both ways. Healthy food cooking for lunch and a happy pup snuggled in my lap. What's not to be happy about? You know what? Nothing! Everything is good. I just have to remember how good it truly is... especially compared to the way it used to be.
