wait! Stop! at least slow down!!

Tuesday, January 15, 2013

Does anyone know where the new year went? I was supposed to begin some me time. I had all sorts of plans, Well, mainly to finish what I started with juicing and C25 but those are huge goals. Maybe sign up for a run as a reward, but somewhere I got lost and I can't seem to find that road that leads to somewhere else...

Okay. Breathe. Look around. Sift through that confetti-head you call a brain and let's figure this out.

Over"h"aul goal is 135 with a cute, yet strong bod and lifestyle.

More moderate goal is: getting healthy. Finish juicing. and C25.

Short term goal: survive this week.

Today's goal: figure out what's going on and what happened.

See? easy. Okay.

What happened? Self sabotage. Oh you bad bad girl. emoticon

You let life get in the way of you. tsk tsk.

I did too. I found myself huddled over peanut butter and crackers yesterday as I tried to figure out how to console daughter for the loss of her bird. That bird should've lived 20 years...he made it 3. Poor thing died of starvation and we don't know how. He was fed so much...almost too much. I sat over the counter watching Oakland declare a state of emergency for 14 shootings in 3 days and wondered if the media is hyping up shootings for the President..... I ate another cracker as my relatives split up after 15 years and I thought of everything Tom and I had been through... I thought of everything I had to do today. The list ... that forever in your head list of things to do. just an odd odd day, week..YEAR


These having nothing to do with your progress! What am I DOOING?

Get off this computer.

Put on your yoga pants...yes, this entails getting OUT of your one and only pair of blue jeans.

Put on your running shoes.

Take the dog out for a walk...heck take all three.

Just get MOVING!!

There, that takes care of today. So I will. I will report back here tomorrow now that I have my computer back and tell myself and whomever is listening how I did survive today. More than survive today. I will LIVE today.

I don't know if I can slow time down or even stall it...but if I'm going to be whisked away in time, I best be moving in it. right? right. right.

    Deepest sympathy on the loss of daughter's birdie...

    I haven't even been able to blog about our latest household tragedy - last week old fat spoiled housecat slipped outdoors (prob under DS's feet when I asked him to go fill dog feeders for me :-( & got himself killed by young overenthusiastic big dogs :-( :-(

    If something tragic had happened to Red Mare too, that would have been just TOO MUCH!

    I like how you looked at what was going on and made adjustments. No one's perfect but the important thing is that we make changes along the way to get back on track. Sounds like that is just what you're doing. Great goals!! emoticon

    Thanks for the perspective reminder! I think I have been in your head, especially when it comes to those runaway thoughts. I hope you had a great walk and I look forward to seeing your, "I SURVIVED!" Thanks again!

    It is great that you are making goals. Goals for every day. You an do this. We are awesome!

    This blog is something to be proud of--you are making a LIFESTYLE change and it's evident here. I'm proud of you for realizing why you were eating and analyzing it, I'm proud of you for restating your goals and looking for ways to change your setting, attitude, etc, for the positive. Keep this up! We all have setbacks and crappy days, but it's how we choose to work through them that separates out the achievers. You are on the path to success!

    It can all just get to be so much, can't it? UGH! But make sure you put YOU on that list of worries and to-do...'cause YOU are so worth it, too, my friend!

    Did you get out for your walk with the pooches?

    Feel like the sign. Life is to short to drink bad wine , or not enjoy part of the day

    love that traffic sign! That's often how I feel about life.
    Good for you for getting out the door for a walk. It can only do you good.

    I have that same Starbucks cup!! Mine sits on my desk at work for my ice water. LOL Girl I swear one of these days you and I will be on the same track at this weight loss/workout thing. I'm going to start sending you a text in the mornings that I'm in the gym....maybe that will help you. Over all though I think (beware of total HONESTY)......I think that you HAVE to start saying NO to others. You used to plan out everything for the girls...well get back to that. Go to Staples (I know your FAV store) and get a big calendar and track your families comings and goings. Then put down in PEN when it is your time. Even if you just get out and walk, you can do this! Focus on getting one thing on your list down and then move to the next. I won't give up on you!
