Birthday museings

Wednesday, July 01, 2009

another year of my life has passed with much of the same results as previous years.The only difference is the fact that just before my birthday I went out and joined a gym.i had been changing my diet and trying to find a way to get my daily exercise in.The diet was going ok but the exercise pert was not going so well.I honestly don't know why I let myself go so bad.I guess it comes from liking things to be easy.Being a C-section baby life was easy for me.I mean I began life with the world handed to me.A week in the hospital nursery where every time I whimpered I was fed.My first month of life was spent thanks to being a colicky baby waited on hand a foot.As the seventh child my siblings loved and mistreated me in turns.All of my life if it wasn't easy I did not want to do it.Until I had children.I would do anything for them, Walk through hell and back again.And I have and am still doing so.My weight loss is not easy but when I had children they taught me that there is no easy street,only lots of love and perseverance.Funny enough to think that for my birthday eleven years ago (if I do the math right)I got my first child.Having him was not easy.But my desire and resolve to be a good parent have brought me this far.Now I have a resolve for myself.I don't know how long it will last or even if I will reach the goals I have set for myself but at least I will have made the effort and put 100% in doing it.In the end isn't life all about the effort put forth and not the end of the journey?

    Hey, waiting for the END is too late, as then we have missed it all. TODAY is all we have. We don't have to do 100%, as that ALL or nothing attitude is what gets us. WE need to do this for US and even if it is only 50% it is better than nothing. I had peanuts today, and counted out 1/2 cup instead of just eating out of the can. Then when I had had 1/2 of them, I MADE myself put back the rest in the Planter's can and put it away. I was happy over the VICTORY instead of letting that miserable critical voice tell me how I'd failed by eating 1/2 of them.

    SHUT UP that negative voice in your head. Being the youngest child let you be MUCH more independent than "taken care of." I have five children, and my youngest is a girl, and she ran along with the older brothers and had she been an only child, I'd have said "Oh, you can't climb that cause you might get hurt, or you can go swim with them in the deep end, because you could drown, etc. etc." NO, she ran with them, swam with them, jumped with them in the trampoline (they gave her a hernia and she had to have a 90 min. surgery to repair it when she was 3.) BUT, being the youngest she was daring and I know YOU were, too.
