Talking On my way.. I think

You gals remember my other posts recently. I'm depressed, and all that terrible stuff. You guys encouraged me to take it one decision at a time and that's what I have been doing. I've been drinking more water (not nearly as much as needed) and have been trying to move more. Today I did this crazy Richard Simmons DvD I have. I have never been able to finish it. I usually do 4 or 5 songs. Well, today I got to song two and hubby called and interrupted me. about 5 minutes later, I was back at it. I finished the WHOLE THING for the first time EVER.

I know I had that rest while I was talking to hubby on the phone but I DID IT. I was all sweaty and red faced but it was done! I looked at the back of the DVD box to find that this was a 50 minute workout. Wow!

I'm sitting here drinking water and feeling like maybe I can do this? Maybe not? We will see but maybe I am getting back on track now. Just had to share~
Guess I'm restarting!

Great job -- in no time you'll be so good at it, you will be "trading up" for something harder!!!

Doing the workout is huge! You should be very proud of yourself. Dwell on the good things you are doing and keep telling yourself YOU CAN! No negative thoughts - they are useless
