Here I Go Again.......

Sunday, April 09, 2017

It has been a while since I made a Blog Entry and I'm at a rather stuck stage and need to get my act together ONCE AGAIN.
I know this Healthy Eating Road is one that we all get lost on from time to time, it is just natural.
Through all the ups and downs, and many years of trying to get to my goal weight I have learned many lessons and solved many problems. The next lesson or problem (and hopefully one of my last) is ME. I really, really want this for ME, but I'm not always very kind to ME. I often times don't like myself very much and say some very mean things about myself. I am in the habit of putting myself last, and when my children were young that was normal, but they are teenagers now and can (& should) be able to understand that they need to be more independent and that I need to take care of myself too.
So, this week (happens to be Spring Break too) I am going to continue to watch how and what I eat, as well as get to the gym and go for walks to exercise, but in addition to that I am going to practice some kindness to myself , take time for myself and love myself.
It will not be easy and I may have to look for some "phrases" to read and repeat often throughout the day, but I am going to give it my best shot and hope to report back soon of how thing worked for me.

    Good for you, Peg. Sometimes it is hard for us to realize that we need to be kind to ourselves and that being kind to us might mean a resounding "NO" to our inner child. You never give up and you WILL reach a point where you take pride in your efforts and your healthy lifestyle!
    I'm making a springtime push too! This is such a beautiful time of renewal and it is time to renew me too!

    Great Blog...I'm with you Margaret.

    one good phrase:

    God didn't make no junk!

    We have to remember this.

    We have to take care of us for Him.

    Love & hugs
