It is time to fill up my glass because I am feeling half empty

Friday, March 27, 2009

This has been a really long week. It has really dragged. And last night it hit me. I am so down. So not a half full glass mentality going on. But why? I have no idea. I am feeling really bloated and it is a week before that will happen. Personally I have been having troubles being (excuse me for my honesty) constipated. Who wouldn't feel icky with that alone? And my oldest teenager is dating someone that does not bring the best of her out. She has this larger than life, fill up a room personality and when he is around he silences her. I HATE IT. She sees it, but when he is around she is under a spell. I just wish that she would see that she could do so much better.
Ok. So I really need to focus on the positive. The positive that I have a trainer that wants me to succeed. That every sore part of my body are muscles waking up and morphing into a healthier me.(and man is my body morphing today after last nights torture). I have a good marriage and a healthy family. I have a dog that idolizes the ground I walk on. A work out partner that is the bomb.(hope you are feeling better today) I have great friends... There are so many good things going on in my life right now.
I am getting healthier and blasting through health and fitness goals that I thought would take so much longer. Not realizing that deep inside of me is the willpower and the determination to do anything; I need to give myself enough credit for who I am.
Today I have slated for a day off to let my muscles rest. Tomorrow is Zumba!!
Sunday is an hour with my personal torturer.
I can do anything in this journey with Amy by my side!! We are doing this sister!

    I understand how you're feeling...sometmes it seems that no matter how lucky we are in life, there are still those moments, days, weeks, months(!) that we hit a wall of sorts and get so down. Hopefully your daughter will see the light and realize that this boy is not for her. I know as a parent it's difficult to sit back and watch.

    Having said all that, here's wishing you a GREAT day and a glass that's FULL! Do something for YOU! And have fun in Zumba tomorrow!

    Jeanne, some days all the blahs and bad stuff pile up on you and it IS hard to find the sunny side of life. While moping and stuffing my face is what I WANT to do when that happens, I have found three sure-fire ways to get my positivity engines going: #1 literally count my blessings, listing at least ten things I am grateful for (and you already started that one!); #2 go for a walk or something outside to get the blood flowing; #3 hit SP and find total strangers to encourage (I usually go to the "I need help" message board or something similar on my spark teams). You might also want to check out MOMOF6BOYS's blog today - she talked about a similar thing.

    And then jsut look in the mirror and smile. If that doens't cheer you up, I don't know what will. You have a great, happy, infectous smile! emoticon emoticon emoticon
