It's hard sometimes

To succeed at what we have decided to do we have to become selfish.

Putting ourselves and our needs first.

This can be a very hard thing for women (sorry if there are any guys who read this). There are so many things and people pulling us every whichway that sometimes it is just easy to say, "damn it, it's all too hard, pass the chocolate".

Well, someone once said "life wasnt meant to be easy"! Its not easy, its not fair but we do have choices. And most of us are making good ones most (but not all) of the time. We are not perfect, we stumble, get up, trip, get up, run, skip, stumble again - this goes on and on - this is life.

I read your blogs - your wonderful inspirational blogs - that have kept me going when times and circumstances seem so overwhelming.

I know you all struggle at some time, we all do, but we keep coming back to this place and saying help, give me your knowledge, support and do you know what, it always arrives.

This week:
  • I am having my first day back at the gym tomorrow after an absence of over 2 months and I have worked out a program so that I can start slowly and hopefully build up to the levels I was at pre every thing going pear shaped last year.
  • I went swimming today and improved on what I did last week and felt more comfortable doing it.
  • I am going to take Lucy walking this week two or more times building up the distance each time.
  • I am getting rid of my picture on my blog (when I can remember how to) because I look like a toothless old hag - my god whatever possessed me to put one up.

I hope you all have a wonderful week.


  1. Sounds like you mean serious business, good luck with your plan. But 'toothless old hag" I must see a different picture from you - can truthfully say that all I have ever seen is a spunky blonde chick with a bit of mischief in her eyes!
    Have a great week

  2. Good luck with everything you have planned for this week!!
    You don't look like an old hag in that pic!
    ...but if you want to change it you go to edit profile then scroll down to the photo part:)
    have a great week:)

  3. Huh ! Where is the toothless old hag? Is that lovely looking blonde chick someone else? Oh I know, you were referring to the dog! Good luck with the gym this week.

  4. What you say is so true! It doesn't matter how long it takes, so long as we persevere and support each other we will get there! Have fun at the gym and on your walks..

    PS Your photo's great!

  5. A toothless old hag?? Pft!

  6. I think you need glasses!!

    Good luck with being back at the gym - I took the plunge back this week too!!

  7. So true that women have so many priorities and we need to MAKE time for ourselves.
    Our blogging friends have helped me so much over the last couple of years too.
    You sound very motivated and I am sure it will all go well.
    Your photo is pretty but it will be nice to see another one too.
