It's all I can do right now...

Wednesday, April 10, 2013

I've been trying to set new goals for myself for a while, but after hitting road blocks and anxiety from gaining so much weight back I've decided to just keep it simple. I will not set a goal right now as far as weight loss goes. Instead I will work on just staying on track with proper nutrition and increase activity. The last year + has been a challenge in dealing with a pending divorce and kids that are just not coping well. I also have not coped well by neglecting myself physically, emotionally and financially. All of which have taken a toll on life in general. Right now life is just survival mode, but the silver lining is that working out regularly the last three weeks has really made a difference clearing my mental fog. I feel better and more positive about tackling pending issues one at a time. I'm starting to really believe wading through all this muck will make me stronger in the end.

    You will come through this and be stronger than before. You are probably grieving the marriage that "should have been" - and not the marriage that is now over. Set small goals - even if it is to get through the week in one piece. And then applaud when you reach each small goal. Focus on making each day better than the one before. One step at a time.
