Spring and New Starts

Sunday, March 20, 2016

It's been an emotional weekend. I haven't dealt with what I need to deal with yet, but I know what I need to do. It makes me sad, but it's part of my reality.

I've eaten too much today... my appetite lately has been insatiable. Most likely my unfinished business.

I did get out for a walk today. 20 minutes, only averaging 3.1 miles per hour. It sucked. My legs froze up something fierce and I had to stop 4 different times. I'm working on letting that go in favor of focusing on the fact that I went for a walk. That's hard.

I did get in 64 oz of water today too. That's important.

Working to keep my head above water with the feelings I'm feeling. But I want it. I want different for myself. I want to feel how I felt 5 years ago. 5 years... that's sad. But to focus on the future, that is important.

Spring. Renewal.

    Accentuate the positive ... you went for a walk! I think it'll get easier to do that, too, as the weather creeps back into spring.

    Practice self-compassion....you will get where you want to go. You can do this. And you are right, it is the season of renewal!

    It looks like you have a good start - knowing what you need to do. Now you need a plan and execution.

    As for the walking and not meeting your expectations, remember the old saying about even a little exercise letting you lap everyone who is sitting on the couch...

    Have a good week and remember what ~Indygirl says - "Baby steps. Leaping in wears you out. Then you quit."

    She is very wise and has learned her lessons the hard way.
