EXCUSES, EXCUSES - I'm DONE with that!!!!

Monday, November 15, 2010

Excuses, Excuses and more excuses - yup, that's what I've been doing. Making up & finding excuses for NOT exercising, NOT eating right and WHY? I have NO idea.....I know how to do ALL of it the right way because I did it before and I know I CAN do it again!! So why haven't I???? NOOOOO IDEA!!!!
YES I have a lot on my plate, had a bunch of life changes, we got rid of our 18wheeler and hubby is a company driver again. We have a more steady paycheck, great health insurance, 3 wonderful kids, our oldest son came back alive & okay from Afghanistan......so why am I still down in the dumps and not doing what I need to do to take care of myself??? NO clue.....
With the holidays coming up and both of our sons coming home - I got to get it together as they will need ME to be strong for myself and there for both of them, my husband & our daughter as we face yet another 12+ months of deployment at the beginning of the year.
If I don't take care of myself, how in the world can I take care of my family??
With this said - I WILL HOLD MYSELF ACCOUNTABLE FOR MY ACTIONS, EXERCISE & EAT RIGHT DAILY AND BE MORE POSITIVE ABOUT MYSELF & MY LIFE!!!

THANK YOU to all of my wonderful SP friends, that have been around for me for all this time over & over again. I LOVE ALL OF YOU!!! GOOD LUCK to everyone on their journey to a happier & healthier new YOU!! emoticon

    Hi Petra. I've been thinking about you. Glad you're back. Ya, somehow there is always something that we have to tough out, while holding the fort. Sometimes I'm surprised that I'm still sane. Enjoy your family (and your great health insurance... mine sucks!).

    As for your goals, spell them out a little bit more accurately.
    You'll eat right by doing what? More fruits and veggies, less soda, etc.
    You'll exercise... When? How often? How long?
    Sending you positive thoughts :-)

    Hang in there! Hope to see more of you. I swear this site helps me keep my sanity.
    Best wishes.
