Don't you get tired?

Thursday, January 08, 2015

Sometimes I just get tired...tired of tracking food & exercise, tired of wondering why my body changes from day to day (menopause), tired of trying to get the right amount of sleep/rest so my body can recover, tired of trying to resist all those wonderful foods that are calling my name. Cue Pearl Bailey's song "Tired". Today is one of those days where I'm so tired...I'm not throwing in the towel or anything, just talking it through because I can't imagine I'm alone in this. I guess I could compare it to romantic love. Remember those butterfly, giddy, lovey dovey feelings when you first fall for someone? And after a while those feelings wane and we settle into our loving relationship and we have to be reminded that love is a choice, not a feeling. So is our healthy lifestyle...there is excitement, especially when that scale is moving downnnnn. But when it's a daily grind and you don't see movement or you're trying to maintain, it can feel like some hard work. HARD WORK. Don't get me wrong, there are still plenty of butterflies to be love & in health. So, today I'm just tired. Are you tired? Let's join arms and hang in there together.

    AMEN! I've gone through this too. Life comes in cycles though. So often our motivation will come back 'round again in a slightly different way. Hang in there. Trust the process. Change something up (try something new like smoothies, find a new fruit you like, or a new exercise like hooping or yoga?)
    I believe in you...

    Since I am diabetic (at least mildly so), I remind myself that tracking helps to keep my blood sugar under good control. In fact since I am more likely to get low blood sugar which has come close to killing me, it helps me to stay alive!
