Well nothin' like waiting until the last minute to get my fitness done but I did get it done for Tuesday. I struggled all day with not feeling well. If I could have taken my head off for a while, I might have felt better. I finally got up and got some exercise done.
I had work to do and it was going to get done! I could sit here and say that every day is easy for me and that I might sound like I always have it together but I struggle too. I have to have tough conversations with myself to get my butt up and get moving.
When I blog, it is as much for me as for encouraging others. I needed every word today. I had a pep talk in my bedroom, in my bed, in front of the fridge, in the bathroom, and in the rocking chair in front of the computer.
I decided that I would blog to have an attitude change. I know I can do this. I have to keep fighting! This is MY time! I can do this!
What is coming to mind is...The heart is willing but the flesh is weak. It is time to discipline the flesh. It is time for my flesh to get with the program.
I am making a lifestyle change and you are going to follow suit. Come correct or don't come at all! In other words, SHUT UP!!! I am NOT going to fall for your whining and crying for junk foods. I am enjoying the fruits and veggies that I am eating. I am not going to run to the fast food drive-thru for burgers and fries. I love my grilled or baked chicken and broccoli!
You tried to tell me that I was allergic to exercise but I am not! I proved you wrong last month when I exercised 29 out of 30 days and I didn't break out in hives. I am beginning to like exercise. I have found ways to exercise inside and outside and enjoy it. It makes me feel strong.
So I am NOT going to give up! I have my goals set and I am not going to stop until I get there. It may be a bumpy road but I will get there. You will not stop me! I let you get away with your comments and your whining and begging but no more!
Oh you think I can't do it? Let me remind you that I survived cancer! I have survived marital issues. I have survived leaving a long time job for the unknown! I survived my job location closing! I will survive this journey. No matter how long it takes! I will get to the end.
I have support this time! You can't stop me! My friends won't let you stop me! They will support, motivated and encourage me to the end! Even if I get into a food situation that I need to be talked out of, they will be there for me! Even if I slip, they will help me up and get me back on track and won't beat me up about it or allow me to beat myself up about it!! They will kick me in the butt when I don't get moving! They will help me keep my focus on my goals! They will cheer me on! That is what my friends can do! They care about me and my success just like I care about theirs!
So in conclusion, I suggest you get with the program. Get on board or shut up!
Let the record show that you have been served notice! And I DON"T want to have this conversation again!
Ok now that I got that cleared up, I am ready for the 4th of July! Happy 4th to everyone! I hope you have a safe and healthy holiday!
