This is hard

Wednesday, May 18, 2011

This is hard. Really hard. Harder then before. I have been so tired every morning so I haven't been excersing at all. Can't seem to get up until I hit snooze about 20 times, then it is too late and I have to get my daughter up for school and get myself to work at 7am. I need energy.

I really want this. I just need support. My husband isn't has supportive as I would like him, plus the way he eats doesn't help me. I need to start eating in my room.

Stress is probably not helping either. Something bad happened last year and it is still on my mind always and it doesn't help that I am an emotional eater.

I will do this! I know I will!!!

    It is hard. You want it, so let's go get it!!! Little goals first. Little steps make up a mile just as much as a fast sprint.Only difference is the time it takes to get there.
    Take your time and definitely focus on getting the water and healthy food into you. If you aren't up to doing a full blown workout, try a walk around the block. Take the girls and make it fun. They have energy that you can feed off of.
    We are all here for you!
    We always want our SO's to be supportive and be as excited for our achievements as we are. Sometimes, they just can't be that support line we need. That's why you have us all as a backup! You've got the desire to succeed and I know you will!

    Read the comments below and some great advice. I wrote a blog about feelings and a lot of what you are facing is feelings. Feelings are imposters, they like to pretend they are master, but they are not! Now, they are strong and you won't win a battle against emotions, they are like a 300 lb. 3 yr. old, the best thing is not to confront a 300 lber, rather distract it and you win everytime.

    You have a lot of issues and big ones, it is like eating an elephant... and how do you do that? One bite at a time is the way.

    Keep focused on your 'why' you are doing this and keep shooting at that.

    Take it hour by hour, day by day. If you don't feel like the exercise fits in to your plan right now, focus on drinking your water and eating healthy. With that, your energy will come up and you can focus on adding in just a few minutes of exercise each day and increase from there. It's too hard to just instantly do everything perfect. Break it down and take it at your own pace. Some days will be better than others, but keep moving forward. Strive for progress not perfection.

    You can do this. It is hard, I'll be one of the first to admit it. This is my second "real" go around and I find it's harder too. I'm not as young as I used to be and my body wants more sleep. I used to get up at 4:30 am to workout and then get the kids ready and myself. Now I'm lucky to get up at 6:30! So I found a new way - you will too. Luckily, my husband is on board with me though.

    Now, put down that ice cream and take a walk :)

    I understand how you feel. Sometimes it feels like the people who should be the ones supporting us most are instead the ones sabotaging us. And I know about the stress. Especially with finances at the moment. And when bad things happen, that can definitely affect our progress and how we feel about ourselves. A few years ago I was anally raped by someone I thought a friend, and after that was when I began gaining back 50 of the 196 pounds I had lost. It was as if my mind was wanting me to regain the weight so men wouldn't look at me. I went to counseling and that did help some, but the strength to carry on with our dreams and goals has to ultimately come from within us. You CAN do this. And you have the support of everyone here. emoticon
