I like your attitude, you got spunk! I can tell both of us have a bit of mileage on the tires of life but you are right--Nothing to do but keep moving.
Take it from an old Coach.
1. Take it slow and and easy.
This is not a race of life and death. We are just trying to keep the
ship moving and avoid the ice bergs on the way. Can't tell you the number of times I flew into a sport and then had to rehab for several weeks because I was in a hurry to do things.
2, Be kind to your self.
If you need time off to do whatever, then do it and not feel guilty. Avoid hurling your self into a
brick wall because you did NOT get to exercise today. The only person that knows that you missed a day is you. No one else cares.You are doing this for you and only you!
I look at all of the working out I do, reading of articles and staying on the diet, going to the doctor and paying for a dietician as my way of being nice to me.
And if I'm really good to my self for the week and worked hard. I'll have a scoop of ice cream on Sunday nite.
3. Enjoy the small rewards.
I am convinced that if we concentrate on the small things, we would enjoy life even more.
I have lost over 80 lbs but my biggest joy is rough housing with my dog Barney. We take walks
and goof around but we have fun. I no longer fear bending over to pick up loose change, I find as I cross the street. Last month, Barney and I split an ice cream cone from the change we found on our walks. Won't make us rich but we had fun!
4. Taking control.
There have been times in my life when I felt that I had no control of anything. What I have found is that if I do things for myself and others , that lets me feel that I control at least something in my life. If I decide that I want to read on Sundays or listen to music, study some thing new all of these things give us a feeling that we can control somethings and it seems to anchor our lives for a moment.
You are on a good course and you have vision of where you want to be. Keep the course, remember to enjoy yourself as you move along. If we are doing the best that we can do, no one can really say anthing about it. Listen to your self and you can never go wrong. I wish you well.
