Reality Hits Home!

Saturday, January 10, 2015

I've been experiencing low energy, drained, and stressed. I saw a picture my DH took of me at Christmas two days ago and reality hit. I don't know how I could have realized what I was allowing to happen to myself but now I do and it changes now. I need to put myself first, not take on the world's responsibilities as my own and stop feeling I have to help every cause and every one. All of those things are great, but not when it has the impact on me that this has.
I've joined a couple of challenges, a weight loss group as well as a study group.
Getting exercise in is and will be my challenge. I've set up a couple of things to keep me accountable, and am confident I will succeed.
Reality hits home, I'm hoping to score a home run in reaching my goals!

    You can do it! Putting yourself first is hard. I have been attempting that this year myself by putting exercise time into my schedule. emoticon

    Good that you got your wake up call. Sounds like you have a good plan in place. I used to think I needed to be all things to all people and causes, but woke up to the fact that I need to take care of me to accomplish anything! You can do it!! Remember, you are not alone on Spark!
