After reading my NAMI article, I realized I need to get myself back on track.

The article was written awhile ago, but that doesn’t change the thought and passion behind the article.  I need to continue to work on the different parts of my life that are important to me, at the same time, to make my whole self the best it can be.

I need to continue to keep my mental health and my physical health up to the same standard.  Paying just as much attention to both of them, knowing that when I am nurturing and fostering both of them is when I feel my best.

A few weeks ago at work I joined a 10-10-10 program with a bunch of co-workers. Basically a little challenge, to work for 10 weeks to lose 10 pounds.  I think I have lost two.  I had a stressful week last week, so I didn’t go to the gym at all.

This week staying in bed with my husband, as I knew I was leaving to go out of town today, sounded much more appealing then getting up and going to the gym.  I definitely plan on indulging this weekend though and certainly going “over” what my caloric intake should be.

On Monday though, I will get back on track.  Back with the healthy eating, the morning gym time and of course meeting with my therapist.  After a couple of months of not seeing her at all, I know have appointments books two weeks and four weeks out and we think that we have found a time that works for both of us.  So, I may have a “regular” time every two weeks.

Either way, I need to feel just as good on the outside as I do on the inside and vice versa.  9 weeks until the hubs and I are in Myrtle Beach on Vacation.  5 weeks left of the 10-10-10 challenge.  Plenty of time, to lose a few more pounds and get my stomach a little more firm.

never quit

  1. Motivation is very hard to keep up sometimes! After a bout of flu and my body still recovering after 2 weeks, I have neglected the gym! Hoping to push myself back into it tomorrow but still feel tired doing small things. I wish you all the best with your challenge!

  2. I hadn’t heard of the 10-10-10 challenge before! Good luck with it, you’re sounding pretty motivated – always good to have a plan and write it down!
