I Refuse to Give Up on Myself

Struggling!

But still on track with at least 10 minutes per day of exercise 6 days per week. The last two days I was feeling so tired and discouraged, that my exercise consisted of 10 minutes of stretching. But my back and my hips needed it and it kept me moving.

My eating has been slipping. I really need to do a 3 day refined foods fast. Even my focus for that seems lacking.

My struggle is not just on my healthy living journey - it's just a struggle about life right now. I have more physical stamina - finally - with consistent exercise; but I feel emotionally and mentally exhausted.

But I will journey on.

  Thanks I needed to see this today :) and it may not be the case for you at all but if you haven't had any bloodwork done in a while ( think ugh Dr' general physical) you may consider it. I spent 6 months not able to get through work outs I had before, being totally out of breath after going up a couple flights of stairs. Long story short after 2 weeks of iron supplements my hemoglobin level went back up and I feel so much better! I still have a ton of health and emotional problems but I have hope :D

  It's tough - very tough - to keep going on when you feel exhausted, mentally and emotionally. I admire you so much for not giving up. I hope you feel much better soon!

  It can be overwhelming at times in this darn journey we are on, but never give up!! It took me going through what you are going through for many years and now (better late than never), at the age of 67, I'm finally getting it right in understanding what I need to do to be successful and sticking with it! Hang it there, you're just stuck right now, but with persistence, you will once again move ahead! You can do it!!! :-)

    I refuse to give up, also.

This is my area of "spiritual Marines". My fight, to the end. For forever. Once a Marine, always a Marine.

Whatever it takes, I WILL NOT GIVE UP.

"But if not . . .", from the story about Shadrach, Meschach, and Abednego. I certain; I am sure of whom I have believed. I WILL overcome, In Him. BUT IF NOT . . .

I will not give up, even if I die trying. This is my calling. Everyone has a different assignment, a different burden to carry, a different cross to pick up. This is my area of calling to being a spiritual Marine.

Semper Fi, sister!

Semper Fidelis: Latin for always faithful. Faithful to God, Country, Family and the Corps (Corps = faithful to our assignment to overcome in this life).

    Awesome post! Thanks for being so real. I am there too but I refuse to give up on myself too. I'm refocusing and planning meals in advance and keeping healthy options in the house. I am committed to this. Thank you for helping me feel less alone and for encouraging me today. I will pray that you are successful today and reach your goal, one day, one choice at a time.

Blessings to you!
Jo
