About time!

Monday, February 08, 2010

I think I am entitled to set realistic goals and expectations. I know what I need to do and I can say I am motivated by my daughter to have the successes she has experienced. She is very happy with life, with herself and I am entitled to that same feeling. I am the only one who can do this no matter how much encouragement I get from others. I do get a lot of it and it is much appreciated. I am joining a health center for a couple of good reasons. I need the appropriate equipment to work out on, as I do not have the best knees and it is harder for me to walk then others. They have a pool so I have no excuse to have not exercised since there is no weight bearing when you are in the pool. And I need to find people of my age who have similiar interests and the bigger benefit would be the new friends I could make. Next week I am looking forward to going to Harrisburg, PA to visit the deer classic. Always wanted to attend one of these but never made the time. I work hard and am entitled to go to fun things such as that and one of my employees husbands is taking me. He is an avid hunter as I am. He is much more successul then I but I have some pretty neat pictures from the areas I have been hunting. I just take my time and go. As you may be able to tell I can make up excuses with the best of them as to why I haven't stayed steady on Spark. Believe it or not a Pizza got me off track and I am reboarding the train. I do not want to wear 2x clothes and have to pay more because they are BIG. I want to be able to walk easier, and I know I can if I am not carrying this extra weight. If you have lost 5 or 10 pounds go to the grocery store and carry a bag of sugar equal to the weight loss while you shop and you will see what I mean. Nope I do not need that and I have reconviced myself of that fact. I am entitled to fulfill the aspiration of feeling fit and not getting out of breath when I so climb up the stairs.
