Getting my groove back

Sunday, February 19, 2012

It's been rough lately. Don't know if it's a case of SADD (Yes, I think southerners get that, too) or if it's just all the junk in life piling up. I do know that I have to leave it behind and move forward.

I think everyone goes through times of feeling sorry for themselves. I won't bore you with all of my whining, but it involves distant grown children, a bad hairdo, not fitting into pants I bought a year ago and having to go back to wearing glasses. There it is in a nutshell. Piddly stuff that I need to just get over.

My eating habits have been terrible. There have been a lot of binging days, followed by days of trying to catch up from the damage that binging caused. Do I really need to eat an entire bag of conversation hearts, or to "celebrate" something by going out to eat every weekend night? Did I really need that 590 calorie muffin at Panera?

Exercise has been sporatic. I catch bike rides in between the cold or rainy days, but I haven't done anything else. I can always make excuses to get out of it. Haven't I learned, yet, that there are NO good excuses?

Turn a page....

Today is a new day. Today I can make better choices. Today I can smile and love and play. Today I can choose how I face the world.

Tomorrow, I can be proud of the choices I made today!

    Sometimes the little piddly stuff adds up - we all need pity party's from time to time. I know you're a trooper and will march forward and put it behind ya. I'm whipping up some low-cal gravy to with that turkey. emoticon emoticon

    Sorry to hear your winter has been tough too...! Although I keep moving with workouts, food choices could be way better!

    But yep: every day offers us a new opportunity to get back to our SPARKED LIFE!

    We can DO IT!

    emoticon You have confronted what's going on, have a plan and it's a good one. One day-at-a-time, one step-at-a-time. Making the day count and not obsessing about yesterdays is a great start. Yes, what we do today CAN affect tomorrow, so the key, as you've found, is to make today count.

    Glad you blogged. Hope it helped you. We're behind you.

    I think its SADD. We have had so many dark and gloomy days lately. We need sunshine and to get outdoors without the rain for a bit. Keep your chin up.

    Just know our feelings are legit for whatever reason. Own them and then find a place for them. That way they don't come back and wack us on the head. emoticon I truly believe the winter months don't help. I fight sadness in the winter. Exercise helps tremendously but there are still days that are harder than others. Hang in there. You are so gonna rock this. emoticon

    Hope you can turn things around soon.

    Oh Vitamin D is a real help for SADD.

    Way to say it. Let's get on with it and claim that turkey. I know that you can do it.

    Yes, Southerners DO get SAD. Even in Texas. And all the piddly stuff can sneak up on you and mug you. So, lots of hugs to you, and as soon as I find some of our AWOL Texas sunshine, I will send some to you. emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon
