Taking it off again!

Saturday, December 11, 2010

I was so proud of myself, I was exercising daily and really paying attention to what I was eating. Then I got in a funk and put 13 pounds back on. I had so many issues going on at work and home with my mom that I just got to the point that I didn't care. I know that I was going through a mild depression and I realized that I had to take stock of my life.

I have been with the same company for 20 years now and I can truly say that I never really had a day where I did not want to go to work. Well that changed about 3 months ago. I was close several times to just walking out. It really ate at me and that is when I got in my funk. About two weeks ago I had a break through and realized that I can not change what other people do or how they act all that I can impact is myself and how I react to them. I now go into work and concentrate on my job and what I want to get done in a day. I challenge myself again to do a little more than the day before. Once again I enjoy my job and going to work.

So I decided that it was time to get back to basics and start working out again. I used to take the weekends off from exercise but now I'm not. I can get several workouts in on the weekend and take my time off through the week when I have to work. So today was the start back on my interupted journey. I am starting off at a reasonable pace and will soon be back to where I once was. I am going to Disney World with friends in April so that is my incentive to stick to it this time. I know that I am not perfect and will regress again at some point but I will just kick myself in the butt and get back at it.
