Baby steps

Lately I've been feeling like I'm falling short in a lot of things. I've been a bit of a disappointment to myself but I suppose I've had a rather distorted view of  how things should be.


So I've decided to look at life through rose colored glasses and reward myself for every small accomplishment instead of beating myself up for not completing an entire project.

Yes, ok, I did take a nap on my day off but I also filled a box with stuff to go out with the trash. Now I need to find a way to encourage myself to lose all the weight I have gained. It's gotten to the point that aside from the people I see every day at work, I'm embarrassed to have anyone see just how much weight I've put on. I know I need to start exercising and I keep telling myself that today is the day. Unfortunately when I get home from work I sit down and then I'm done for.

  1. You are gorgeous in the second picture! You have imposed upon yourself these things you need to do, but you can also tell yourself that you can do them any time you feel like it! Be kind to yourself. I made your tuna salad tonight. It was wonderful!! The best pasta salad I have ever tasted! I will be making it a lot. Like you, I used red onion instead of a shallot and it tasted great. I shall make a double recipe next time, and we can eat it warm for dinner, then cold for lunch the next day.

    1. Aww, thanks. You're right I can do these things anytime I want. I think the problem is I want it to all be done now...lol
      Glad you liked the pasta salad. I'm already thinking about making it again

  2. I agree with Ginny, you are too hard on yourself. And your title, baby steps, is right on. We're all rooting for you and appreciate your sharing.

  3. One day at a time, sometimes it's three steps forward and then one step backward.

    Love the 2nd photo of you.

  5. Yeah...what everyone else said. You have been through a LOT, Ann! You need time to figure out feelings, emotions, finances, and everyday life. That doesn't come quickly or easily. Maybe if it ever stops raining you can walk to and from work. That might help burn off the calories and improve the spirit at the same time.

  6. I agree, don't be hard on yourself. I can do that too. You have been through a lot so don't beat yourself up. When the weather warms up get your camera and go for those walks and take photographs. You enjoy that and we do too.

    Have a fabulous day, Ann. Big hug to you and lots of lovies to Gibbs. ♥♥♥

  8. As someone who used to do this, don't wait for one day, some day to see other people. No one is judging you and if they are, they don't deserve to be in your life. You've been through a lot so don't be hard on yourself. You're an amazing, strong woman and that's what people see so be grateful for every day! Hugs to you!

  10. WE have to agree with everyone else. You have been through a lot so just be patient. The weight will come off when you are ready for it to go away. We like the second picture too.

    1. I'm beginning to think the weight loves me and has vowed to stay with me forever...lol

  11. You look so cute in those glasses. And I think we should ALL focus on being healthy and not worry so much about our weight. When we get healthy...the weight comes off. And no one really cares how much you weigh when you smile. Don't worry about what anyone thinks anyway! lol You're perfect and we love you!

  12. I know what that feels like - I am the same way. I think it's easier to lose weight in the summer with all the yummy fresh produce. You look adorable in those flowery glasses. I'm sorry but I haven't been able to comment - don't know if this one is going through either.

  13. Yay!! I can comment again! :)
