Plugging Away, Always Adjusting...

Tuesday, June 29, 2010

Good Morning!

My glucose came in at 151, got my 75 sit-ups in around 6:30am. Doing some work and then I'm going to meet Annette at the pool around 10:30 for some Intervals.

Cindy and I both feeling a little better and hoping it was just a 24 hour thing.

I'm feeling out of sorts across the board, can't quite put my finger on it. I'm learning to adjust and continue working my plan to stick with it no matter where I'm at physically and/or emotionally. I keep plugging away and do the best I can with what I've got.

Most of the time it feels pretty difficult to try and put into words what this experience is like everyday...I try to capture a bit of where I'm at, but like the wind...it changes often. No complaints, I'm so stoked to be 9 months into this journey and be making progress...but it gets tough to stay on top of everything mentally. Over the last 24 hours I've caught myself craving a "vacation"....it's been a long, long time since that has happened...not really sure how I could pull that off between my business and my training schedule, but I'm gonna think about it and talk it over with Cindy and see if we can come up with some kind of modified "break" or vacation that won't take too much planning and do it on the cheap...we'll see.

I wish this was a more linear path, not riddled with ups and downs...but it seems like the more I want it to be different, the less present I am. When I'm more accepting of exactly who I am and where I'm at without harsh judgement...I learn, and enjoy myself so much more!

So I'm going to keep plugging away, always adjusting...

Have a really Smooth Tuesday, Ryan

    I like the idea of accepting who we are and where we are at without harsh judgement. I am my own worst critic.

    Hope you get to go on your vacation, even if it is a mini one.

    Whatever it takes is the best way to go....we all have the ups/downs and as long as we keep moving forward, we will succeed...Hope you can work out some sort of vacation...I could use one too!

    My mom's favorite quote is "The only thing in life that is constant is change." I hated it when she said that, but more and more I understand it and accept it and I've found the more I accept it and roll with it, the easier it becomes.

    9 months into the journey, but it only happens a day at a time. Like you said, stay present in the moment and things will work out.

    "Just plugging away" - yes, that's all it takes.

    Good morning and good day to you!

    Although life would be much less interesting if it was more linear, it sure would be nice if it was a little smoother from time to time.

    Life....our sweet life no matter how smooth is always tumultuous at times in our lives. Learning to adjust to the bumps...the ups and downs is key....You really seem to be handling things quite well and I just know that you can. Keeping upbeat and smiling is imperative.
    Hope you get to go on a little vacay even if it's just a weekend get-away. Three days is all I seem to need to recharge. We all need that for our human spirit.
    Have a good day.....smile and be glad.

    "...it seems like the more I want it to be different, the less present I am. ..."

    That is one of the best things I've read in a long time! When I quote it to others, do you want to be known by Ryan or The Water Jogger emoticon

    Thanks for being you!!

    Nothing wrong with a little vacation...and it is a great experience to see that you can actually go on one and stay healthy! In the past, my vacations were usually more about the food and where we ate than where we were. That is changing. Hope you have a great day and I'm glad you feel better! Cindy, too!
