Stamina…

This is true…

Tonight was brutal. It really was. There will be no spin class for me tomorrow morning because it’s far too late for that. I still have work to do and it’s very late for a school night. My lunch isn’t made and I am getting sick. This not self-care!

This is true…

Stretching myself beyond what I am right now to what I hope to become is difficult. I can do hard things. I accomplished a lot and I didn’t give up. This is a remarkable quality I am tenacious! Here is what I’m going to do next, am going to finish what needs to be done and then I will get some good sleep.

Sometimes the right thing to do acknowledge both sides of the same reality. I think I gained weight because I didn’t know how to manage my stress levels. There is no magic strategy but I am becoming more self aware.
