If you fell down yesterday, stand up today.
Saturday, January 19, 2019
I'm struggling right now. There is no doubt about that. I have too many body aches...and a new one this week that is slowing my workouts down. Someone brought Lindor Truffles to work...luscious dark chocolate truffles that I have eaten far too many of this week. I fell down every day this week in my eyes. I feel the hurt in my body and I feel weak in body and spirit.The kids have been a main focus after work because they have serious midterms and need help preparing. My husband injured himself and has been less help than usual. It is the first week of the semester, and I have been helping students all week with big issues. I didn't go on Spark all week because I was feeling discouraged and felt like giving up- yet again. But, I said this morning that today is a new day and I need support so I came to Spark after my morning workout. The first article that caught my eye was the article of the day "Stay Motivated with 65 Weight Loss Mantras". I read the article and found several mantras that spoke to me, starting with the title of the blog: "If you fell down yesterday, stand up today". And that is what I plan to do today. Just stand up. I am going to do what makes me feel good today and I want to be proud of myself at the end of the day. Morning workout done. Spark check-in and tracking done. Plan for the day: sledding and cross country skiing with the kids, midterm studying, puzzle time, laundry, and cozy snowed in day! I'm off to a good start!
