Every day a new day

Yesterday was the pits. My battery in my car died and I spent my last dimes on it. This just sent me into a tailspin of self-pity and loathing. I didn't go crazy (luckily there is no junk food in this house) but I didn't exercise and I totally blew off the last day of my water challenge. So today I have to decide to pull myself together and focus on this one thing. I'm doing my best to work and stay frugal. My number one priority has got to be my health right now. I lost sight of that yesterday, big time! 2012 is going to be a long year but its my healthy year. I've come to the end of the line. The path to prescriptions and hospital stays is getting far too close. I have a job and a place to live. My excuses can't find places to stay in my mind anymore. Walking around the block is free. I have plenty of food. Does my body hurt? Yes, it does. Thats not gonna change until I decide to push through it. I've sat in the starting gate for too many years. It's not like I've had a great time being fat and I can guarantee I'm gonna have a great time slimmer. I've reinvested in myself.
