“I’m gonna find my inner child and kick it’s little ass”

I was struggling today to figure out why I have been feeling frustrated and not working out.  I kept beating myself up and hearing all this negative chatter in my head.  I finally went to the gym and as I was exercising I remembered an inspirational quote I had seen on Facebook.  To paraphrase it, it was something like ” if you are tired of starting over, don’t give up (or quit or something like that).  And then it clicked!  The light went on!  I was feeling overwhelmed because the thought of starting over seemed so hard; not achievable.  I hadn’t been perfect so how was I going to get there?

There are so many things I want to do and I want to do them  all.at.once.  I want to eat Paleo, I want to get stronger and healthier (which will lead to weight loss) and I want to be more active.  And I want to document my way through all this stuff.  As a scrapbooker and a photographer, I am looking forward to it.

So I kicked my ass and started this blog tonight. It’s not going to be pretty all the time but … what the heck.  I guess that is one of the benefits of being over 50; you get to put it out there and accept it for what it is.  Get ready for my ups and downs about eating, exercising, dealing with my depression…and any other aspect of my life that comes up.
