getting over negative thinking and neg comments
Feeling like crap today, got a chest cold or something. I tried to work it off by working out all week but it's not working. My bio teacher was saying something about that it would make sense to keep working out due to getting your lymph system drainage going or some other stuff like that but sometimes you just gotta slow down! I think since I've joined the ymca 3 mo. ago I have been sick like 3 times! Must be a lot of germs there, so gotta remember to be careful and clean with the towels and spray first! Pain in the b*tt. Whose working out when their real sick anyway? HHHmmmppphhh! I wanted to try yoga tonight or go swimming but i'm not going as I don't want to pass this bug along. Just a note about negative comments from others. I have enough neg. comments in my head! One was just a negative about my sister thinking she can't continue this ww journey with me or maybe just her fear that she will quit as always. She says stress does her in when teaching begins in the next week or so. That was her same comments until school was out in June so I'm thinking this is an all year thing. I know their just excuses and failing to plan and do other things w/ stress than eating but we'll see if she folds this time. I really want her on this journey cause her health is being affected, from serious varicose veins, to problems w/ her feet, etc. I really hope she's ready to do it. Another comment was from my close friend from childhood, when I was talking about wanting to lose weight a few months ago. She said 'you may always be overweight'. Ok, could be true but I'm not buying into that mentality. I still have hope that this can be beaten or at least managed. I'm not going to be one of the those old ladies who can hardly walk due to weight issues. no way!!! Maybe this comments actually partially fueled me into doing something about my wt for once and for all. Or maybe it's that I've tried to lose wt several times and didn't get past 20 usually and best feat was 35 lbs. I hope to break thru that 35lbs barrier and create new milestones. Hope everyone is doing well on their individual journeys!
