Gearing up for 2019, Which has got to better than 2018
Monday, December 10, 2018
This year has officially sucked. I had spine surgery which took care of a lot of my pain from my work injury, but not all of it. I lost my dog to leukemia. My kids father, whom I was with for 21 years, died of cancer. My daughter is having like weekly migraines and my son just randomly cries sometimes. I gained weight. Some days I don't want to get out of bed.
So starting today (I already did it) I am getting up an hour early and walking. It can be just around the block. The point is just to restart healthy habits. As long as I put the workout clothes on and go outside, I am considering it a success. That is the hardest part, after all.
The diet is including a lot more fruit veggies today too. I started that yesterday. Hopefully these little changes, lead to more little changes until I am healthy and happy again. The only thing I do have control of in life is my own actions.
Just for balance... because I realized my perspective is all wrong when I posted this. This year I got into grad school. My son graduated high school. I had friends who stepped up when I needed them and helped me out with a lot of stuff. I got a new puppy. I think besides the walk, I need to dust off the gratitude journal too.
