Unlike the line for the Orient Express, my favorite roller coaster as a kid, there is no chicken exit for this ride I am currently on. There is going to be ups, there are going to be downs, at times the climb to the top is going to feel like it is taking FOREVER. Then there will be other times where things are happening so fast I want to scream out of total excitement. There may be a few sharp corners that I get wildly tossed from side to side as I navigate my way around them, but in the end this will be the ride of my life. IT IS MY LIFE.
Over the past couple of months my world has been shaken up, tossed around, and when I landed I found myself in another country where I didn’t understand a word that was being said to me. I also found that the past few months of stress eating and lack of exercise had taken a BIG TOLL. I would guess that I am about 10 pounds heavier but I have no idea since my scale is in a box waiting for me to find a home so we can be reunited and continue our love/hate relationship. I really could care less about that darn scale, I know I have gained weight and inches just by the way my clothes are fitting and I DON’T LIKE IT!
So what does one do when they feel this way? Eat more and exercise less? Sadly yes that is exactly what some will do. It is exactly what I could so easily do.
Then I am reminded of some upcoming events I have to attend and I am thinking about how I will feel trying to find that perfect dress etc… for those events and it makes me mad that I have let myself get to this spot in my life… AGAIN….
I am going to eat,
I am going to eat to live not live to eat.
I am going to exercise,
I am going to keep my thoughts positive,
I am going to set goals, small ones that lead to the big ones.
I am going to enjoy the adventures that this move has allowed me to have.
I am going to ENJOY THE RIDE!
Today I am starting day one of PiYO, yes, in the hotel room.
I’ve got this. I am now sporting the conductor cap on this ride of mine. Are you a passenger on your ride or are you in the driver’s seat? Don’t take the chicken exit…. Let’s Do This!
*** I have some great pictures to share with all of you but the internet in our hotel room isn’t being picture friendly today.
