OK Sister-friend. ..you want it straight? No chasers?
There is nothing wrong with you except you are a wonderfully made albeit flawed human being like the rest of us.
Iím not going to tell you that you need to punish yourself with harsh boot camp no pain no gain you gotta feel the burn & suffer mind approach. It doesn't work for most folks.
Your family doesn't have anything to do or for
your health or well being. Contrary to pop culture, doing it for someone else works perhaps short term not for long.
Doing it for yourself works only when one believes & act on a cellular level that it is worth it all. That takes time & effort. It does not mean one waits until that moment because there are very fine Laura not unlike onion skins to get to that point.
What float your boat? Group activities? Solo workouts? Inside? Outside? Early morning or after work?
As an example, I like dancing. Iím also very people oriented. I also like solitary walks. IíM a early riser, so I go for walks armed with my camera. Because of joint issues, I have to do short walks, but generally every hour or 2 I will do some movement for at least 5 minutes. It adds up.
Next month Iím going to take a dance class twice a week. As I said I have joint issues so things will be modified to accomadate. As an ex-dancer, I know how to adjust.
Let me give you a secret: in my locale, we get tons of Soul Train reruns. Some of my 5 minutes increments,I boogie in the privacy of my home & donít have to ísplains to anybody.
It is plain fun.
Look for what will make you laugh out loud, giggle or just even smile.
Need martyrdom . Be mindful of the words you use. Be kind to yourself.
Give a gift:look at caring for yourself as a privilege
