Ok. Starting again week 1

Sunday, February 17, 2013

I have done some soul searching. On January 1st. I wrote a great blog. I was rereading it. I have decided that I have let myself down. But I can't undo the past. I can just wake up in the morning and try to do better. So I am going to try my best and that is all I can do.

So I am going to start with at least 15 minutes of cardio in the morning and in the evening. 5000 steps a day. Log all my food. I think that is enough for now.

I am going to keep with my college classes. I am excited that I am doing this if for no other reason but I want to.

I cried the other day when someone said that I was inspiring them here on Sparkpeople. I don't guess I have ever heard anyone tell me that inspired them.

So if you are reading this and wonder why you keep trying. I will tell you why I keep trying. Because if I do nothing else but keep from gaining any more weight I have done something. But if I do keep it up then I will lose weight and that will help me on many levels. So emoticon only if I emoticon .

So I have set my alarm for 5:15am and I will try my best. So what will you do to help your health?

    I just caught up on your last few blogs here. Wow - You've had a rough few days! I'm sorry to hear that things are so difficult for you lately. You certainly do have a lot on your plate which is exactly why you need more time for yourself.

    Maybe you and your hubby can try a counseling session together? A lot of the issues going on in your life are medical issues with other people, you will not have much luck changing that. But, maybe you and your husband can change your relationship to help both of you be happier?

    Otherwise, you need to find things to do to help you relax and not let the world around you take such a strong hold. Maybe 10 minutes of yoga when you wake up and before you go to bed? Or maybe just 10 min before you go to bed? As you stay commited with your workouts and your eating, reward yourself with more relaxing things. Maybe you stayed within calorie range all week and worked out for your 30 min a day? Finish the week off with a pedicure! You lost 10lbs? Get a massage! Do things for yourself!! If you are able to get your husband's help, maybe you can do a sewing retreat one weekend? My mom does them nearby all the time!

    I have faith that you will get on the right track. You had your wake up call, now it's time to do something about it!
