Time Flies

Saturday, September 26, 2015

Wow. I decided to check in and see when my last blog was. March. March.
I can't believe it.
That was right about the time that things began slowing down for me. Hubby didn't get recalled to work after his father's passing, I started worrying about our family finances so I took work in June. I now see that in spite of what I said, I am struggling to keep up with my healthy journey. I get home from work absolutely exhausted and it's difficult to find the time I need to take care of myself.
I'm feeling overwhelmed again......The clutterbug is winning and I feel stuck. I manage to stay on top of my studies and that's one great thing in all of this. I'm grateful that I donated all of the clothes that I shrank out of; I have no reason not to take this slide seriously.
So what's a gal to do?
One thing I'm trying not to do is beat myself up. That won't accomplish anything, and I certainly don't need the negativity that comes along with it. I am worthy and I think that I've forgotten that while I've been dealing with the needs of others at work.
A paradigm shift is in order, and that's where I'm at tonight. I simply can't and won't go back to where I was. I never felt better when I was working to make myself healthier and I need that more than ever right now.
So I will shut down the voice of my ego, and stop making excuses why I'm not doing the work. I simply haven't made myself the priority I need to and that stops today.
I love the feeling that I have control over the negative influences in my environment.
I love when my pants feel too loose.
I love walking into my closet and randomly grab clothes; not worrying about how they'll look when I put them on.
I love the feeling of accomplishment of completing difficult workouts.
I love the extra energy I have when I exercise.
I love feeling complete.
These are all very good reasons to get back on track.
Tomorrow is day 2.

    Keep that List of WHY you're doing this Front and Center. YOU ARE WORTH IT!!
    emoticon In my experience, being tired is Almost Never a good reason to avoid Exercise. When I'm "Tired" that is when I NEED That Workout the Most.
    If I promise myself to do "Just 10 Minutes" I usually end up doing a Lot More.
