Well, here it is, almost the end of June already. The year is half gone.
This month I failed miserably at 2 of my three goals: I did not journal my food and I hibernated instead of getting out more. I can chalk that up to 2 things ~ weather and illness. The weather was either stormy (thunderstorms, tropical storms, etc.) or unbearably unseasonably hot and humid (global warming anyone?). And partly because of the weather, I've had an unusually long run of migraines.
But I think I can say that those are excuses, not reasons. I could have written down what I eat, even though I would have had to face the embarrassment of bad choices, laziness, and just-don't-care-edness (I think I made that word up.)
I also could have picked up the phone at least once a week and called a friend.
Where I did succeed was in starting water aerobics again, not using the fact that the month was over as an excuse to wait. So I'm proud of that. Little steps, grasshopper, little steps.
July promises to have a few busy weekends. I must not lose sight of my goal: to eat better, exercise more, and interact with people. Because I've committed myself to teach some needle art classes this month, I have forced myself into interacting with people. For me, that is good. I've already paid for my July water aerobics and I HATE to waste money, so that will work too. Now, if only I can make better choices about what I eat. Wish me luck!.
It's been a long road get'n from there to here.
It's been a long time, but my time is finally near.
I will see my dreams come alive at last. home.insightbb.com/~eowynchallenge/
