Healthy Choices

Tuesday, September 19, 2017

I know it's been awhile since I was on here. Thank you to everyone who sent me messages or post it on my page to check on me. I'm sorry I haven't been in touch. It's been a rough several weeks. Had a couple of deaths in my family then some other stressors. But this morning began to make good choices for myself again. I've decided that that's going to be my challenge through the holidays. Healthy choices. Choice I make I'm going to give myself a check. That includes both physical and mental health. I was almost thinking back into depression, the whole time knowing that if I would just begin to exercise and take care of myself that it would go away. Well that's what I'm doing. As always I know I will reap benefits on the scale, but that's not what I want to focus on. I just want to focus on each individual choice and give myself credit for it. I got up before my alarm went off, I worked out on the treadmill for 30 minutes, I took the stairs twice, and now I'm having healthy breakfast. That's all doubly challenging because I'm on the road again. And now I'm on SparkPeople so that counts as well! I'll be checking in on all my faithful spark friends. Hope everyone has a healthy day!

    So sorry for your losses. That is what my August was like! Not easy. HUGS

    And glad you're back AND taking care of yourself.

    Sorry things have been so tough... and glad you're back. I don't really recall how long it took me to me to realize that even the worst life had to dish out was more manageable when I made an effort to take care of myself in the midst of it all.... even if that meant pushing myself a bit harder for my own sake (like getting up earlier). Initially it felt selfish, but now self care remains at the top of the list. The question I ask myself now is, "Will anything else actually improve if I take this time away from doing what will keep me healthy and strong? Will anything get worse if I neglect my own care?" Keeps me moving forward.

    Glad to have you back, and on the path. Was thinking about you and what you were up to, went to you page, and there was you post. Magic I guess. Take care.
