Here comes the sun

My posts have been pretty depressing these days and I apologize for that. I have not been posting as much because I would hate to disappoint my readers with drab, “poor me” crap that I do not even want to admit.

Last year this time I was ready to take on Diabetes, Weight Loss, and whatever other hurdlers I was running up to. I just feel so defeated right now. I am fighting a cold so my BG sucks, my ability to exercise has been difficult since I cannot breathe. Not the way to start the OC New Me Challenge but I will get in gear.

The OC New Me is going to be my saving grace. I need motivation. I need encouragement. Thanks Allison.

I cannot look at the dorky picture of myself and not feel like I have lost a connection somewhere. It is truly a strange feeling. I don’t think it will last. Hope, I should say, I hope it will not last.

You know what, I need to just change. I need to count my blessings, look back at all I accomplished, remember that the toughest hurdles have been passed with ease and now it is time to kick some major ass.

I am done with it. No more sorrow. I do not have time for this shit.

It may be a little forced at first but eventually it will be totally genuine.

Here comes the sun!

George, why not start your day with that Beatles classic? Might get you in the mindset of optimism.

czggnSG, I have a bunch of rotating quotes that I stick on my computer - one of them says "The smallest action has far greater power than the most profound and well though out intention.....just do it!" And, think how much you've done so far.
I don't remember who sang this, but I keep hearing that song that starts out "nobody's gonna break my stride....."

Being in a good mood is almost like a habit. It does have to be forced at first when you're coming out of the doldrums, but then after a while, good moodness is almost a reflex (although there are times when you have to get kicked in the butt now and then).

I can't wait to see the progress we all make doing the challenge. For some reason, I'm especially excited to see how you PWD's make out with your A1C's.

Hey G-Money!

We all go through ups and downs. We deal with the downs, when they happen, but we can CAPITALIZE on the ups when we can bring them around.

It is work at first, but then you've got some momentum behind you and it gets easier.

Also, don't ever worry about what you are posting. I don't want any sugar coated half true stuff. Just keep it honest, post for yourself and not for any of us.

Take care man!
