So done with feeling sorry for myself

Yep. Done. This week has been hard. This month has been hard. Hell, this year has been hard. But I am done with letting my emotions get the best of me.

After being all out of sorts watching the rest of the fitness class do a stellar work last night while I was on the hand bike, I realized something has to change. I just haven't been happy about my progress in the health and fitness realm since the beginning of the year.

So, what is going to change? First of all, my more weepy shit. No more whining.  I am going to swallow my pride and do what I can at the gym. I am going to listen to the physical therapist when I start to see her on Friday. If she approves, I am going to sign up for the RnR half.

I am going to confess that some of my eating patterns  have been for comfort and emotion. While I can tell myself that it's okay because It's gluten free, I know it isn't. No more gluten free crackers....hummus....starches after my pre workout snack. I am going to take my recommended supplements without attitude. I am going to have that late night protein shake as advised. I am staying off the scale.

I am not going to let my perceived attitude of others distract me from my goals. I am going to get my 10000 steps in a day. I am going to be as active as I can be within the parameters set by my trainer and the pt person.

All these things I resolve here and now. For I am stronger than my emotions....I have sisu and I can get through this.


  1. Always strong thoughts!

  2. You're going to be a lot happier because victims, by definition, cannot succeed. So here's to you having many more successes. :D
