Oh, my feet hurt just thinking about the pain yours must experience everyday. I have a few friends who have been dealing with that in one or both feet. So I hear about the pain... I hope you find some relief and some serious rest and rejuvenation.

Finding it harder all the time for "exercise" per se' when I am on the run all day @ work and working on feet that are so painful (Plantar fasciitis) ............... and most of the time waking up feeling like I never really slept .............. so in short: EXHAUSTION ............ emoticon

I am battling two major things that seem to be big hurdles for me right now...
1) Getting back to the gym... a) nerves in my back are inflamed from the treatments and then the surgery, I have Physical therapy and keep making some jabs at testing workouts but end up irritating those nerves. b) FEAR- of a hundred different things.
-I need to really have to challenge myself to get back up there and do what I know I can safely do without irritating my back-
2) Distractions... other peoples' lives seem to be consuming time in mine. Having been so available for so long because I couldn't go out, that now it's just difficult to wean people off of my time and the pressure of their problems. I am trying to not answer the phone during times that I have set aside to sleep and workout, to eat or to "just not be home". It's difficult because I have gotten involved in so many peoples issues over the past 8 weeks, that withdrawing gracefully and politely is a difficult thing to conquer.

They (not sure who "they" is) say dark chocolate is actually good for you. I say treat yourself to a good piece of dark chocolate. emoticon
I get the exercise thing. I need to work on that one, too.

The most difficult things for me to do is first to resist chocolate & also to find time to exercise like I should.

It's also hard for me to exercise. I know I should and never regret when I do it. I just don't do it often enough. emoticon

I can get easily sidetracked with projects. I was off for 4 days and planned to purge my entire house. I got my bedroom done and that was it. I ended up getting sidetracked with other things.

Starting a new project, and finishing a project that I've lost interest in. That is most difficult for me.

I love grocery shopping. It's my personal time (away from the kids). Plus I love to get new ideas for meals from new things I find at the store.

By the time the job portion of my day is done, after picking up the kids, making dinner, monitoring baths, reviewing homework, maintining the laundry duties and minor clean ups, the day/night are gone so aside from getting the minimal amount of sleep, taking care of me is last on any of the to do lists. being a single mom is hard but i cherish the gift.


I will achieve a healthy lifestyle.

For me, it's time - but, as far as exercise goes I'm a real procrastinator, and I could have walked a mile or two in the time I waste convincing myself to get going!

It's all difficult. I run on about 3 or 4 hours of sleep a day, so I'm often too tired to do anything.

for me, I have found that exercise is difficult, I am good with the exercises I do on a very normal basis, but I've injured myself a number of times over the past 9 months and so expanding my variety is a bit of challenge, though I will try anything once, but I really have to push myself to PUSH myself, if you understand what I mean...

I enjoy walking and could walk 2-3 hrs a day if given the opportunity. My greatest challeng is making it fun for Natalie (4) she joins me on all my walks, at 4 she has already completed 10 or more 5k races (we walk, not run). I would love to have "me" time and be able to run instead of walk, but Natalie is a blessing and I know that she will grow up and be off to school before I know it and I do appreciate the bonding opportunity with her. If it slows me down so be it, there is always tomorrow. emoticon

IT IS NEVER HARD TO FIND THE TIME TO EXERCISE, IT IS THE AMOUNT OF PAIN I CAN WITHSTAND THAT DAY. I ALWAYS HAVE THE MAKINGS FOR EXCELLENT MEALS, BUT OFTEN DON'T HAVE THE STRENGTH TO MAKE THEM. THEN I TEND TO EAT SOMETHING I SHOULDN'T.

WHAT IS HARDEST FOR YOU TO DO? FIND TIME TO EXERCISE? FINDING TIME TO GET YOUR CHORES DONE? EATING RIGHT? OR THE ECONOMY MAKING IT HARD TO BUY THE RIGHT FOODS? OR IS IT DOING ALL THIS WHILE WORKING OUTSIDE THE HOME AND TRYING TO RAISE A FAMILY BESIDES?
