Lost: My Oomph

Tuesday, June 30, 2009

Where oh where did my oomph go? Did it go the way of the sun, which has been so rare here in Massachusetts in June? Has it been drained by a very stressful month of June at work? Has all the activity of the Spring finally caught up with me? Perhaps a little of all of this?

Perhaps, but the undeniable fact is that it seems to have decided to disappear on me, and I have looked under rocks, I have looked around corners, I have dug deep down into the soft belly fat that is ever present, and I can't find that oomph..

If anyone has seen my oomph, can you let me know where it has decided to hide? You can write me right here, at this address, and I will continue to look myself. Thanks.

    emoticon emoticon emoticon T, you are sooo FUNNY, girl!! It's e.x.a.c.t.l.y. WHERE you left it last!! Just go back... back... a little further... go on... keep going... see that speck over there? Yes, you do, it's right there!! There... almost... THERE!! See it?!! I told ja'!! It's always the last place we were when we left it. It's not going to chase us down, and it's not hiding from us either. It's EXACTLY the excuse... the 'later' and the more excuses that we use. THEN... just like slippin' on an old pair of comfy shoes (UGLY but sooo comfy) we slip back into our well-trained OLD lifestyle.

    T. Get off your tush before everything you've worked for does a FAST rewind!! You've come too far to allow yourself sabotage!! I want to SEE that yucky lucky cardio blast BLASTIN' out a' you every single morning. You KNOW it makes you *feel* good for the entire day. START THERE. Then... every other day you WILL 'do' your ST!! Even if you can't get back into a full 30 min, try to go for 10 min. After 10 min, go for 20 min.

    I want to hear/SEE you back on your LIFESTYLE CHANGE routine!! June is OVER. No more June. No more excuses to use for June, sooo... before anymore activities and busyness take over July emoticon and everyday put a sticky note on your car dashboard, mirror, forehead... hehe!! WHERE EVER you have to, with POSITIVE affirmations to WHY you've chose a HEALTHY new (new) NEW lifestyle change, sweet friend.

    I got my 'eye' on you!!
    Love, yer'

    I'll bet your oomph and my oomph are on a beach somewhere drinking stupidly caloric drinks, laughing at how they've managed to outwit us... but they obviously don't know us very well, do they? We're gonna show them. Do what you've always done, Tina (and what I've learned from you)... keep up with your minimum good habits, rejvinate your spirit and then move on.

    I so feel where you're at... I'm so exhausted from the frenetic activity of June (and especially the last week)... and I just can't push myself right now. I'm giving myself this week, and I'll regroup on the 6th! Oomph or not, get out of our way (I'll come looking for you)!

    Oomphs have a way of hiding in the most unusual places and just when you see it hiding behind stress, it scurries away and hides behind lack of will power. As they say if there is a will there is a way. You can find it!!!

    I bet your oooomph is somewhere hangin' out with mine! If you find them please send mine home! If I find them I will send yours!
    We just gotta hang in there. I am here to help if I can!

    I haven't seen it, but I know you'll find it. In the meantime, just hang in there.

    My kids have been playing a lot of hide-n-seek and blind man's bluff this summer. I'll have them help in a search party!

    I have lost my oomph several times in the past, so I know how it feels. The sad thing about oomph I fear thouugh, is that the one that loses it, is the only one that can find it. Oomph is a sneeeky thing, it hides itself in the only places we can't find, and sort of comes out of hiding rather than being found.

    Just take care of yourself, try to find some fun, look for joy, rest and the oomph will sneek out of hiding before you know it. Support from your girlfriends, and family will help. You'll do the needed things to stay healthy and it'll show up! I wish there were more I could do, but you know I'm always ready to listen!
    Love ya, mean it! (as my sister-in-law used to say)

    Hang in there, it's always in the last place you look. I know you'll find it again.

    Tina, I'm sure the weather isn't helping and your very stressful situation at work isn't helping either. I know it's there, I know you have it, you might have to dig a little bit deeper to find it, but you've got it girlfriend! Hang in there and know that I am pushing for you.

    Love ya,
