Emotional Rollercoaster

Wednesday, January 05, 2011

I need to get back to some sort of control over my life, and my weight and health are just about the only thing I can control at this point. I've been in the dumps and have had a major case of the "F"-its lateley. And because of this I'm letting my emotions take control of everything, my willpower, my self esteem, my well being EVERYTING. I have to realize I have no control of the things going on in my life but I can't put my life on hold and hope things work out the way I want them to. I need to pull my self up and put one foot in front of the other and focus on what I can change...my attitude, my habits, my weight and my health. I need to show my boy's you can be sad, and you can cry but you keep marching on. And when the time come's that my life is back to normal I want to look good , feel good and be at peace. So my goal for today is to Breathe (well as well as I can right now since I have pneumonia), and make good food choices and take care of me and the boys.

    Hi Andi,

    I know it may seem like your plate is overflowing - I think we've all had that "Are you kidding me?" and then throw your hands up in the air in disgust moment(s). If I may say this in total support...remember that it's very very difficult to make life changes on your own. Everyone needs a support system..whether it is your husband, friends, kids, Spark friends, etc. don't be afraid to ask for help!

    Of course being sick only magnifies things so cut yourself a little slack until you are feeling better, then maybe set some small goals for yourself to achieve by the end of the month...that my dear, is within your control! emoticon Then, try and take it up a notch next month, and see for yourself what you can teach your boys emoticon Don't forget, small is better than the alternative my spark friend, and YOU CAN DO THIS!! Don't you give up on yourself...YOU'RE WORTH IT!!

    All the best to you, and go get 'em!

    The first step is recognizing what you can and cant control. The rest is up to you. You can do it and have a wonderful support system with Sparkpeople. Good luck!
