Oopsies. Perhaps my plan for the week has only been in my head so far

Friday, July 06, 2012

And here it's Friday already. Sorry.
I've been fighting the pain monster all week it seems and still trying to keep my brain focused on my goals which are (finally) posted below:

My goal for this week was to to do some type of workout (even if modified) at least 5 days this week.
Also shoot for 2-3 completely meat free days.
Lastly, I want to continue to set small weekly goals each week since I need to feel accomplished right now at something, no matter how small!

This might seem like a short and simple list but I knew it would be challenging for me.
*So far I need to get another workout under my belt to meet my goals*

Wish me luck!

    Hey Bren,

    So sorry that you're coping the 'Pain Monster'. I wish there was something to help you with it.

    Any goal, no matter what you chose, is better than no goal at all.

    Hang in there and I realize that I haven't been as active on the site, but it's summer and the kids are home and computer time is less for me. I've been thinking of you and I hope you're doing good.

    Do what you can and what you are able. And if it doesn't work exactly as you plan, just know that that is OK, too.

    Bren, know, too, that you are such a beacon in the vast darkness of this weight loss community. You inspire by the way you strive and push yourself to the limits of your own endurance, facing formidable obstacles.

    Your blogs and your feed notices never fail to reach the masses, as witnessed by the comments.

    YOU ROCK, GIRL!!!!!!!

    I think you should add: send Jan a spark message on her page every day.

    That would help I think!!!! Hugs to you Bren, keep fighting and give Olive a hug for me...

    Oh, honey, I hate that freaking pain monster. I would like to annihilate that pain monster. I just want it to leave you alone! YOu do know, don't you, that you make it mighty difficult for many of your Sparkly friends to make excuses? When I start toting up my aches and pains, I often think "Bren" and, "poof" emoticon there go my excuses and off I go to exercise. emoticon I am inordinately excited to see some new icons on SP so I had to use one!

    Bren, you make me feel I should do more because there's nothing standing in my way. For a person who has such huge obstacles, you still make goals, you still speak out to us here on Spark, and you absolutely do what you can in any given week. You are awsome!

    You have set goals and are mindful of them.....that is the best!

    All my wishes for your pain to ease!

    At least you have goals in your head! I'm not sure I can even say that much. Mine are more like wishes this week. I need to think more like you and think of things as goals, even if they're small. Today is my planning day for the next month. I'm going to schedule in the things I've been "wishing" for to make them more real.

    I hope your pain abates SOON. And forever.
    Hang in there.

    I know what it's like to fight with pain. It makes everything more difficult. BUT you are making a conscious decision to do what you can which is a heck of a lot better than a defeatist attitude that is so easy to fall into when battling any issue. You've got this! Hope you have a great week and good luck.

    Good luck! Small goals are good..but I would say give yourself a *huge* pat on the back for getting through the pain..that's pretty darned amazing. emoticon

    I hope your pain eases for you. Don't beat yourself up for not carrying through on the goals - at least you have them set! Pat
