Help…

There is nothing wrong with asking for help. Whether is help with health and wellness goals, or something more. It’s really a sign of strength because when we ask for help, we are advocating for ourselves. So why is it so hard to do?

I’m working on recognizing when I need to ask for help. My three big triggers that have the potential to derail my health and wellness goals are when: I’m very stressed out, overly hungry, or tired. I can’t do it all, all by myself all the the time. So when I feeling overly hungry, just by telling someone, “I’m really hungry,” it helps. Or if I’m dealing with a stressful situation, acknowledging and naming the emotions help me to be specific with the kind of help I need. When I’m too tired to stay up and work, I name it and make arrangements to carry the work on into tomorrow.

We all need help sometimes. My wish for you is that if you need some help to stay on track with your goals that you ask for it.

Tonight and Tomorrow…

Every day is not going to be good. When I was losing the bulk of my weight I had many days in a row that were, on point. Now that I’m maintaining some days are good to go while others I just go rouge. Lately I feel like I’m pulling from one extreme to another.

It was a beautiful spring day.

It doesn’t help that I’m worried about some things in my life. But that’s life. That’s the way it goes sometimes. I am going to keep doing my best, remembering that my best is pretty damn good. I bet yours is too. I am going to keep at this – living a healthy lifestyle and maintaining my weight loss and it helps me to know that there are others like me who are doing the same thing.

Tonight, this feels hard to do but tomorrow it will probably feel easier.
