It's not all happy
Thursday, May 21, 2009
Life has been....challenging lately. There have been lots of feelings and emotions going on, and not many of them have been positive. Angry, sad, frightened, exhausted, depleted, heartbroken. We all have things happen to us that make us have these feelings. Sometimes lots of things pile up at once - and this is what has been happening to me for the last month. For a while I thought I could see the light at the end of the tunnel. At this point I don't think I have the energy to hope that the tunnel even has an end. It's been one foot in front of the other. What else can a person do? You keep going. So while I haven't been exercising with the commitment that I've had in the past, I've tried to at least do SOMETHING most days of the week. Even if it is only a short walk. And while I have been doing a bit of emotional eating - I'm not doing it with the abandon that I would have done a couple of years ago. So no, I'm not doing everything that I should. And, yes, I really could find time to work in a little more exercise. But I've decided to give myself a break, and treat myself gently. Wow. Sparkpeople really has done more for me than help me lose weight. It has changed the way that I treat myself.
