emoticon I sure miss the long ago days of summer....when we were young and didn't have a care in the world! Could play all day, nap and then play all night *sigh

It seems all I do now is work work work and then worry about finances. emoticon It's exhausting and I'm tired of being an adult. I'm also tired of being a fat adult emoticon

I have been struggling with my weight loss my adult life and not until the last couple of years was I able to finally start making some headway and work on some healthier habits. I have been feeling very down on myself though for not being able to keep up my progress and stick to my guns. However, I am still living healthier than I did for most of my adult life and I still continue with my daily food logging and journaling.

My personal struggle is adjusting the low carb living with a stressful, busy life. I am happy and proud of myself for having started exercising. It is just the beginning of the fitness aspect and I find it difficult to "enjoy" getting it started in the early morning before work, but I feel fantastic afterwards. So I am embracing it and charging forward. I had 2 great workouts this week and will again this weekend. I find that working a full time job, and 2nd p/t job that the only time I have for "me" is in the mornings before my crazy days start. And I'm ok with that. It makes me feel good and I feel like I'm accomplishing something for myself - not taking care of everyone else.

    Giving yourself time in the morning is a wonderful way to start your day. I'm sorry you're feeling so stressed. I hope you find some ways to release it. Maybe let loose and dance like no one is watching. I love journal writing. One thing I like to do is print inspiring clipart pictures or cut them out of magazines and glue them in my journal. It's uplifting.

    Great job starting an exercise habit. I know it's not always easy to get started but it's so worth it!
