I refuse to make this a struggle!

Tuesday, July 26, 2011

Seems like everything has been hitting me at once in life and I've become quite depressed. But I know that there is a lesson to learn here and I will not ignore the pain or try to make it go away with a pill or other remedies.

Exercise is the best medicine. I am back at the gym since yesterday. I love to work out. I find that the barrier is in not being prepared in the morning to go.

So every night, I will check my gym bag, make sure my clothing is there, make sure I have my water bottle, that my ipod is charged and my bag is near the door, ready to go!

Also, just because a racoon ate my expensive GNC vitamins and I can't afford Muscle Milk right now and other health foods and supplements doesn't give me the excuse to give up.

Doing something imperfectly is better than doing nothing while I wait for things to be 'perfect' again.

I'm ok with the time this is going to take. There are no real shortcuts, only perserverance and patience.

I will get there. But I need to just enjoy the journey and not worry so much about reaching my 'destination'.

    Great attitude! All it takes to succeed is a mind-set to do so. Looks like you are definitely on your way!
