Doubt

I'm still here....just been blah lately.  Last night I took the time and got caught up on all of my blogs.  I hate being behind, because I miss whats going on and get the info after the fact.  

I don't know what's wrong with me lately.  The weather has been terrible.  Last Wednesday we woke up to about 12 new inches of snow.  The temperatures have been close to freezing, and although I have lived here all my life and am used to this, I am getting a bit tired of it.  Sigh!  I have a few rooms in my house that are in desperate need of cleaning, and that makes me feel stressed.  I haven't started organizing my photos like I wanted to.   My energy levels are nil.  I am in a slump!!  I just kind of feel like my life is spinning out of control.  I need to gather all this mess up and offer it up to God and beg for help!  

I've been off track with my food, which is probably the main reason for all the other stuff.   I hate how my eating can dictate the rest of my life.   I missed my last WW meeting and that is never good.  I missed my weigh in with my accountability group and I needed that.   My mind is playing games with me. Making me second guess everything that I've been doing diet wise. Trying to justify my over eating of the junk food.  I'm starting to doubt myself that I am worth changing for.  I hate that.  I need to refocus and get back on track.  I know what I need to do, but I just can't find the will or the  energy to do it.

Anyway, thanks for listening to my depressing rambling today.  I apologize, but I needed to share.  It helps me to move on and this is the place where I can do that and not feel ashamed for my failures.

We are in this amazing season of Lent and I am being lazy, feeling sorry for myself, and being a glutton.  This has to stop!   I need some quite time in prayer and mediation....Or better yet, I need a good slap across the face to snap me out of this!  Any takers?? :) 

xoxo

  1. It seems lots of people are in slumps lately... I'm sure the weather has something to do with it! Make sure you get to your meetings with WW and your accountability group this week--my WW meeting is my weekly "reset"! Slumps happen... just don't let it undo all the hard work you've been doing! *Hugs*

  3. No slap coming from me, LOL. Pick one thing to do today that is a reminder of your healthy habits - say, make a conscious effort to drink a lot of water - and maybe that will change your mindset back into Fit and Healthy Lori.

  4. I need a slap too :) I like the idea above if doing one thing today that is a reminder of healthy habits. I might steal that one :)

  5. Hi Lori, if misery loves company then you are in good company . I also am on a slump although I just enjoyed the most wonderful week in Claifornia sunshine with my baby , I overate, gained at least thee pounds of the weight that was so hard to lose in the first place .. Ugh but I am grateful I had such a nice vacation, it was good for my soul but now I struggle . I have sat on the couch for hours today and angry my wifi went out. I also love mugs and bought a very cute one while I was gone . Hoping to blog about my vacation this weekend. Chin up and forgive yourself and let's strive to be happy regardless , right?

  8. Thank you for your honesty, Lori. I am in a bit of a slump right now too, but am working at pulling myself out of it. Food can have so much control over us! You'll make it through this battle!
