My struggles are the same. I make a few healthy changes and it doesn't seem to help. It almost sickens me when someone says I gave up soda and lost 20 lbs. That never works for me! I'm almost tempted to go on the diet my friend is going on that her doctor is putting her on. She drinks 2 carnation shakes every day and then has a healthy dinner. She says she's hungry during the day, but someone said she could snack on fruits and veggies. Maybe something to jump start me and then I can replace one of the shakes with a meal and then eventually the other one. I'm tired of being fat and having little energy. The doctor said this would give her energy.
Neither dad has given me child support since 2 weeks ago, I paid my rent & phone bill and have between a 1/4 tank and empty. My 17 YO DD just informed me that she needs to makeup a biology lab after school... so now I have to drive to pick up my 7 YO DD from school.
EX#2 claims he has money for me this weekend... I hope this is true because otherwise I'll have 0 gas to get to work on Monday
I've been on the mends. My shoulder, back, and hip just started hurting out of nowhere, but ice, ibuprofen, and stretching have finally paid off and I'm working out these kinks. Still it's a struggle because that sidelines my exercise program while I wait to heal..
Self doubt... I had a bad weekend and now i have to face up to what sidelined my goals and fight back. I know this and I know that I can do it. I also know that I have to find a way to keep this from happening again. There are weekends at the end of every week that I have to deal with without a mental breakdown.
In the end it will all be fine, if it isn't fine.... It's not the end!
Energy. I'm so tired and part of me want to just lay down and relax and the other part, the part that mostly wins reminds me that I don't have time for that and so I'm doing stuff around the house dragging. I thought the salad from lunch would have perked me up, but all it did was take care of the hunger and my eyes aren't as heavy. Was tempted to drink the two drops of caffeinated soda I have left, but I told myself to not do that. Two drops won't help.
