Hanging in there...

Tuesday, January 10, 2012

things aren't the best for me right now. My husband is still unemployed and though I started looking for work as well neither of us have had any success. I'm fighting depression and have dealt with health issues during December. I had a case of the shingles and had to discontinue my race training. I just started working out regularly again last week so I'm getting my exercise back on track. Amazingly, I have kept my eating under control and though I didn't get to my goal, I did get well into my maintenance range and I'm happy about that.

I'm going to close out with my new goals for this month. I've deleted tons of negative thoughts and complaints and I'm afraid I'll start crying about how horrible things are if I keep going right now. I try not to be a negative Nelly.

My goals for January, 2012:

1) Continue my new workout plan.
2) Begin a new running program...train for a 5k.
3) Drink 8 glasses of water per week.

Y'all be blessed!

    Hang in there honey, things will get better. Your husband will find the perfect job and things will be better. You need to stop worrying. That's why you got the Shingles. You are doing better than me, I can't even get a routine going because of my shoulder. It discourages me because there is really NOTHING I can do some days.:( OH, I know what I can do? EAT, that I have no problem with.

    Becca, I'm so sorry. Life can be such a struggle at times! I'm glad you blogged. When I'm down, I am always worried that people will "drop" me for being such a downer. We need each other, and we need to be real. Praying something wonderful comes your way, my friend! emoticon

    Becca ... love you SO much! Am so sorry that things still aren't "going your way." I'm glad, though, that you ARE hanging in there with your thought processes as well as your food consumption. Keep on truckin'. Y'all WILL overcome! Sending up a prayer for you and yours. emoticon
