Making a comeback

Sunday, September 02, 2012

I am slowly getting back to me. Last week I got at least a small walk in everyday. It hasn't helped my energy level. I still have less energy than I have in a long time, but I am forcing myself to get out and move instead of sitting around.

Normally I don't believe in ultimatums, but I have given my husband until our anniversary on the 25th to get his stuff together. I told him back in July and reminded him this morning. Let's see what happens. Our marriage won't last if I am forced to give up my dreams. The resentment will just continue to grow until I find myself doing something I would regret.

Anyway, I am working on getting back to the old me. I am back to thinking about what I eat and focusing on fruits and veggies. I am back to looking for fun exercise. This week I went exploring on some hiking trails. I got eaten by the bugs, but found some really cool bridges. I only have two weeks left of being able to walk the trails after work because their hours change, so I plan to spend a lot of time there this week and next. Then imay have to get my Leslie Sansone DVDs back out. Hopefully I can stay motivated. I've been stopping at the trails before coming home so I don't talk myself out of it.

I have a plan that may not work, but all I can do is try. I've always been a master at finding something to laugh about each and every day. I've lost that and need to find it again. Life is too short to be miserable all the time.

    You've made your choice and given him the chance to make his. You have every right to move towards your dreams. We might not have our dreams handed to us, or be able to ultimately reach them, but we have the right to try. So while you're paused (waiting for his decision), now is as good of a time as any to do good things for yourself. That includes enjoying healthy food and enjoying exercise.

    I believe that you have good things ahead of you, this moment is just a speed bump. Keep loving yourself and believing in your future and you'll find a way to get to where you should be - happiness.
