Going Through The Motions

Friday, June 15, 2012

Over the past 3 weeks I've just been going through the motions with Sparkpeople. What I mean by that is I try to at least come by the site to 'Spin The Wheel' and make sure I am checking into my BLC19 Challenge team 3 x's a week. Other than that though, I am not up to par where I should be. I'm at a place where I'm not sure how to fit in everything I should on top of all the extras I've had to do lately. Well, I'm here to say that it is time to STOP going through the motions and get myself back INTO motion!

I've been feeling bloated and just miserable. I haven't been sleeping well either. My 9 year old has been out of school now for a week and 2 days and I am trying to figure out a summer schedule for us and also trying to keep my kids from fighting so much (it has not been easy; it has been stressful!)

So I am here to tell the whole truth and nothing but the truth. My eating habits have been atrocious. I haven't been on the elliptical in what seems like forever. I am just really upset with myself and the way I look and feel. I know that I have to pull myself out of this funk because otherwise my weight will continue to rise instead of fall.

I just needed to vent this today, hence the blog post. Tomorrow I am going to do better. And the next day and the next. I must make a pledge to myself that I am worth all of the effort it is going to take to get fit and healthy once and for all.

If you have been going through something similar, I encourage you to take the step to start over too. Pick yourself up, dust yourself off and tell yourself that you are worth this and you will do it! I hope you will join me in jumpstarting yourself to a healthier you!

    You BET you are worth it, babygirl! You can always vent here, to us, publicly or privately without judgment. Your children will learn what they live, so GOYA and get them out of the house, if even for just a walk around the block...every hour on the hour. Use your timer this summer. Clock their chores in return for clocking their video time. Be creative with their activities, and make sure you're an active part of it. As you learn things, teach them what you've learned. You can do this, and we can help. Where is the local pool? How good are your sneakers? Do you all have bicycles? Do you know about the Freecycle website? Oh, so many questions.............if you need a local buddy to meet y'all for a walk, I always welcome the opportunities for walking trails or malls with kids along. It's always much more fun with kids. My grandchildren are 10 and 8. We keep them as busy as they keep's only fair. Blessings! Mar

    You are SO not alone! We moms have a love/hate relationship with Summer, but it can also be a time to start new things for ourselves and our kids. Hang in there and feel free to 'vent' anytime. We all are, or at least have, felt what you are going through. emoticon
