I have to say 2011 has started off a little bit rough for me. Between flare ups & hitting my tailbone while sledding...I've not been able to exercise like I really want to.
That being said, there is no reason I couldn't have done a little bit of strength training and watched what I ate extra carefully.
I've mourned the 3rd anniversary of my mom's passing no different than last year. For the past two weeks I've not had the gumption to anything. I just took down my Christmas decorations last week. I started it two weeks before that...I just didn't want to do it! No amount of energy was going to get me to do it!
I hate feeling this way, but once I get in that funk, it is hard to get me out of it. It is a very slowww process back to where I was before Christmas.
A combination of many things factor in:
1. The weather here in NE Ohio is just plain unfit for man nor beast.
2. I haven't been getting calls about my photography business.
3. We are squeaking by with the bills & my substitute teaching opportunities have been minimal.
4. Been potty training my almost 3 year old with many messes to clean up daily.
I've been trying to get my head back into the game. Trying to outweigh these facts above with positives in my life. Someone to tell me I'm OK and this too shall pass. Slowly, it will happen.
I was hoping that January 2011 would start out differently than I'd hoped but its almost over now. The only thing I can change is the end of it.
One of my prayers is that consistency would become a part of my life in many areas. Saving, spending wisely, activity, nutrition, potty training...
