I almost missed March!

Saturday, March 31, 2018

I just looked and just realized that I didn't blog once in March. I really want to be here daily and blog at least weekly. I know I can do this so what the H3LL is my problem?

I look for blame everywhere but I know the reasons rest with me. I've lost my faith in myself. That is a hard thing to get back. It's different for confidence. Confidence I have in spades! Faith, that unshaking, unwaivering KNOWLEDGE of something that you can't prove or put your finger on. I've been missing that for a while. Not certain how or when I lost it but it's gone.

Now, I know that I can build it back a bit with small successes, or at least I think I can. I had it once, I can have it again. I did this once. I was 135, running a 5K every month, 20K steps a day, and really feeling good about me. I had faith it would always last. Then I fell apart. That is where the faith started to fail. My confidence failed. The I went to H in a hand basket.

So, no it is time to climb out of the HLL I've created for myself. I need to focus, that is for certain. Can't do it all at once. I think I need to start with movement. Moving makes me feel better, makes me happy, and it is something I can SEE.

So April's goal is to move my booty every day. Back to walking the dogs and my mini-tramp. It is as close to spring as we get in Chicago so being snowed in is not an excuse. On that note, Tazzy, Dizzy, and I are out of here!

Blessed Passover!
Happy Easter!
Joyous Spring!

Faith starts in each of us.

    You are looking at this brutally honest and realistic, you know what you've done and what you are capable of doing. Now's the time to keep looking forward because you're not going backwards. There's some kind of quote like that I read once.

    One day at a time this month!

    I love your statement at the bottom...Faith starts in each of us!! That is so very true!! One of my biggest obstacles is having faith in myself. I have done this yo yo dieting thing for so long that I tend to think that I can't do it one more time. That's when I have to remind myself...fall down seven times, get up eight.

    We can do this together!!! emoticon

    I hope you enjoyed your walk. With the (eventually) warmer weather it will be easier to get outside. I know I have a hard time exercising at home and if I can get out and walk it always feels better than staying inside.

    Way back when I first met you it was small steps! then you sort of took off and was exercising like crazy..... so, maybe keep it small and simple for a longer time and don't overdo! Hey, we all take that handbasket to H3ll, but the good thing is that baskets are lightweight and can move both ways! Just as we rode it down we can ride it back up again!! Check out Pahla bowers on YouTube for some great mini-tramp workouts and others as well! They range from beginner easy, wel never easy, but not as hard to really brutal! Welcome back! You can do this! Happy Easter! happy spring!

    Yes, one step at a time, friend!

    You already know how to do this successfully. You are already on your way.
