Winding down

Thursday, March 14, 2013

I hope my body re-adjusts to the time change soon. I am rather worn down.
My insomnia is bad enough without them toying with time.
I might be catching a cold too. Or my seasonal allergies are getting an early start. Sometimes it is difficult to tell.

Still mad busy but it looks like things may be slowing pace a little soon.

Last weekend in the middle of a very LONG busy stretch, my boyfriend asked me, "What are we doing on the weekend of the 23rd, do we have anything planned?"
I replied, "Nothing, so far that I am aware of"
"Let's try to keep it that way if possible, ok?, he said.
That would be nice.

I am still vastly impressed with myself that I have managed to maintain through this current stretch of stress, depression, and chaos.

Spring is coming.
With the defeat of Winter I anticipate the usual resurgence of my energy and hopefully the ability to finally get to my goal.
It has been a long slow climb. I have at times been very frustrated with the Plateau I have been stuck on since November, but in a way it has been a victory. I have maintained. I did not gain over the winter. I did not give up when it got rough. It helps me believe that the healthy changes in my life are permanent.
I can most certainly live with that. As long as I can EVENTUALLY start to make progress again. I would like to reach my goal.
I really believe that if nothing goes wrong I can do so by summer!

Need to go find some wood to knock on.

    I too am waiting anxiously for spring....It can't come soon enough! I can't wait to feel the warm sun on my skin and smell the spring flowers. Feel the grass under my feet - it is coming and we are going to be filled with energy!

    I was looking at our SP Class of January 20-26, 2008 Team to see what others are doing. I am glad to see you are still Sparking!

    I agree that the time change has been no fun! I still have not been able to feel rested. But it sounds like you'll have something good to look forward to the weekend of the 23rd. That's exciting. And maintaining over the winter is a big accomplishment. Sometimes it doesn't feel like it, but it definitely is a big thing. I think starting next week, I've got to kick my healthy lifestyle back into overdrive. It's time to act like it's spring, even if the weather indicates otherwise. Lots of healthy foods and exercise to come! We can do this!

    Saturday the 23rd is Mudthaw... I don't think I'm going this year though, tooooo much. And from that exchange I think it's safe to say neither of you are going either :)

    I try to keep my weekends open for family time. Good luck to you on busting thru the current Plateau and reaching your goal. emoticon

    I often try to do nothing on Saturday. And if I don't finish on Saturday, I can do nothing on Sunday too!

    Live the dream and make it a great day.
