Well, y’all…..it’s been an overwhelming, tiring, exhausting, anxiety-ridden couple of weeks! That sentence was the hard part. I just wasn’t sure I was going to put this out here, but if I’m being honest and forthcoming about my journey, I should do the great, good, bad, truly awful, and make-me-wanna-gasp-and-throw-up-a-little-bit-in-my-mouth parts of it!
I’ve been down a little. Not working out as much, but I haven’t stopped. I didn’t quit. And as another blogger commented on one of my earlier blogs, “you only fail if you QUIT!” So, not failing. I’ve just allowed myself to get a little overwhelmed with……EVERYTHING! Those of you that know me well, know that I tend to have one small thing happen then obsess about “everything else that may be wrong.” Not the best way to handle things at all, but chatting and blogging and giving myself a pseudo break have helped.
I’m hoping to jumpstart my energy level by a couple of different workouts this weekend. I’ll do my Saturday morning zumba, but will also try something new. I’ll fill you in on the something new after I try it.
What I have RElearned over the past couple of days is that I’m not Superwoman or Wonder Woman. (Although, I kinda hoped I could be Wonder Woman!) I cannot do everything, nor does anyone expect me to do everything. I have high expections of myself, and I need to realize that it’s ok for me to dial it down a notch….or two. I overdo and attempt multitasking like nobody’s business. I also RElearned that I can’t take care of others unless I take care of myself. I am not Superwoman. I can’t do it all. I’m not alone. And repeat…..
So, with all of that said, I’m hoping to leave behind my couple of weeks of blah. Oh, I’m smart enough to know it will happen again, but next time (maybe), I’ll be better prepared!
