I have been struggling these past couple of weeks. I haven't been working out, or tracking my food like I should. I have been stressed out lately with my job and personal issues. I told myself I would blog when I was stressed, but I haven't been doing this either. So I need some motivation and encouragement. Somedays I feel like this will be a never ending process. I will never lose the weight and maybe I should just accept the fact and move on. But I need to not think like this. I need to get out of this mind frame and back on the wagon. I can do this and I will. It may take me a while but I will finish it. I seem to always give up when things get hard and not finish. I will finish this and I will accomplish this goal. Every year for Thanksgiving my town does a 5k turkey trot. Usually most people only do half of that, but my son and I are always watching the people run/walk by our house in the morning and last year he said he wanted to participate in it the next time. So my goal is to be able to do this with him. Even if we walk the whole time, finish it with him would be a great memory for me and him to have.
My goal for this week is to work out 3x's a week and track my food every single day. Even if I go over my calorie goal, I will accomplish these two things. Baby steps that's what I need to work on!

    It's never easy to stick to our goals. If it was, we'd all be skinny, healthy and doing everything we wanted. We have to realize that the path to our goals is never straight. It winds, has pot holes, sometimes whole trees fall over our path so we can't even see it, but we have choices when these things happen. We can stop and say, "I can't see around this curve, there's a pot hole in my path, where'd the path go there's a tree in my way. I guess it wasn't meant to be. Or we can embrace the challenges, patch the pot holes and get out a chainsaw to clear the path and keep going toward our goals. Remember it is one step at a time. Every choice we make is either leading us towards our goals or away from them. We just have to make sure that we are making more positive choices than negative ones. One step at a time. Just keep going. emoticon
