Sick of It!

Monday, November 02, 2009

I am so sick of spiralling round and round in this healthy lifestyle journey. I just can't seem to make the necessary changes that make for lasting change. I don't know how many more times I can pick myself up and start all over again. I know that I am the only one that can change things but I just don't have the energy to keep it going. Sorry to be such a bummer. Ok...now that I've gotten that out of my system I will get busy with all that needs doing. I have a few things that have to be done today.

    I hope you are starting to feel a little better. As for me life is a constant up and down battle. I understand. Please do not give up and know that you are not alone in this struggle. God Bless You! HUGS wendy emoticon emoticon emoticon

    I hope you were able to get moving. I know that it is difficult to get started so you might have to convince yourself that it will only take a moment. Once you get started, you just keep on going.

    Barbie you can do this by taking it one step at a time. Have you broken down your plan into small manageable goals? Many times when we feel we are spiralling out of control it is because our plan is too big and thus we become overwhelmed. I look at it this way, when planning a trip, we take it one area at a time not all areas at once. By this I mean we might start with where we want to go and set a course to get there. At first we might look at the total miles but then we break it down into smaller more manageable units. Then we plan where we will stay, how much money we will need for all that we want to do. We also decide what we want to see. Weight loss is the same idea. Take one area at a time (ex. tracking your eating) and make a build on it. Once you have mastered that area add another one (ex. exercising) and develop a workable plan (ex. walking ten minutes three times a day = a 30 minute walk total). As you add each small goal, the overall picture becomes greater. Remember you are making lifetime changes and these do NOT occur overnight. Give yourself some credit for all that you have accomplished so far, focus on the positive and learn from the negative. Keep us posted on how you are doing.

    Take care and have a blessed day,

    God gives you one new day at a time. Treat each one as a new beginning. Don't get muddled down in your mistakes; why not celebrate your successes. When we fight depression we concentrate on what is wrong instead of what is right. I hope that you can find at least something to celebrate. Don't let the devil get you down! Take care, be blessed and we will keep praying till you are out of the woods!
    Blessings,

    I feel the same way. Now that the colder months are coming I have such a hard time. I have a hard time getting motivated to do what needs to be done. I sometimes make the wrong choices with my food choices and my exercise is getting less and less. The only thing I can think of for both of us is to keep going. I know it might feel like forever but we will get the hang of this life style and when we do, it will be great. Don't give up. We can do this.
