I wanted to participate in one of the fun Monday blog hops. But the truth is I have the blah's and I just really don't feel like it. I'm discouraged. I did so good with my eating and exercise last week. Got on the scale yesterday and my weight is the same! It's not just weight loss though. It's just this reality that no matter how hard I try it's just never enough to keep up with everything. Something always suffers. Someone is always disappointed. It's never enough.
This time of the year I'm always a little down. My birthday is coming up and before we moved to Louisiana I always had a special tradition of celebrating with my besties (we all had birthdays around the same time). The first year after we moved here my sweet husband arranged to have them come out for a weekend for my birthday and surprise me. It was awesome! Every year since then my birthday just seems to be a reminder that I'm away from them missing out on the special birthday celebration. For some reason my birthday every year since tends to bring bad news, frustration, or disappointment of some kind. Last year brought one of the biggest fights my husband and I have ever had. I spent the entire day crying. So, I guess I'm right on target for this time of the year. My birthday is only a couple weeks away and the discouragement has already set in. Maybe I should just skip the birthday this year cuz I'm really not in the mood! ;)
Sorry for being a downer this morning. Does anyone else ever get like this? What helps you get out of the funk?
