::bends over and kicks self in butt::

Tuesday, February 09, 2010

That is what I have had to do as of late because I must admit that for some reason, whatever reason that is, that I have just NOT been feeling this lately.

I don't know if it's the new meds that the doctors have put me on due to the fact that I have been diagnosed with yet another illness that I was in no way prepared for, and I am wallowing in my own self pity, or it's that TOM and I just don't have the energy, but I have been slacking in my working out and tracking food for the past 5 days, and I must admit I don't like it, not one little bit. I can't even pretend that I do because I don't.

This is NOT what I signed up for this time around, things were going to be different, but I forgot to factor in that life still keeps on happening all around you, and it doesn't care if you are on this journey to a better you, or what your reasons are for wanting this more than you ever have. Life happens, and you have to learn how to roll with the punches, and I guess I am still learning how to do that, do it WELL anyway.

I have to remember that along with the punches comes the victories too, the good parts of life. I have to remember those victories and all that I have accomplished and everything that has come into my life and is good. I have to remember these things because if I don't, then this journey will be filled with all of the negatives, all of the punches, and as Mary J. Blige would say I don't need "no more drama in my life."

So I am still looking forward.

After a good swift kick in the butt for myself.

Do you know how hard it is to kick your own butt? It's just the kick I needed.

    You are not alone on this one. I have been struggling along with many sparkers and we must dig deep and stick with it even when some days are not so pretty to look at. Before long Spring will be here and we will all get a wonderful BURST of ENERGY. We just need to keep our journey's in tact the best we can and ride this winter to Spring. We all have accomplished so much and come to far to not continue. We are almost there!

    I know exactly how you feel. I'm still doing my workouts, but my eating has been horrible. I think for me it is the time of year, and with all the snow, ice, and bitterly cold temps, it's just making it worse. We need spring to get here. So, hang in there. You can get back on track!

    I feel ya, Nikki. I swear, I think we're paddling in the same boat! I'm glad you blogged about it, now I don't feel so alone. I really do hope it's just the meds you've been taking and if so, they can be adjusted and hopefully you'll feel better. Talk to your doctor about it. That is very important. Whatever happens, even if you don't feel it, DON'T give up! Keep going and remember we're all here for you.

    Nikki, I have a hunch that this latest bout with the funk can be blamed on the meds. If that is the case, some of this may wane after a period of time when your body adjusts to the new meds. I hope so anyway.
