Blech, blurch, and blah! How in the world are you supposed to form words into a blog post, when you can’t find the motivation to even turn on the computer? I guess you can’t expect this journey to not have any roadblocks, and how you overcome them is what decides your level of success. Today I am focused on healing an injury, recovering from the meds I had to take for the injury, and getting back on track from vacation and spring break. I am trying to not get overwhelmed by the distance I still have to run, and I am trying to not be discouraged by the setbacks and old habits that keep sneaking in when I am focused on the big picture. I made a few decisions this week to help me focus on the here and now, and help me focus on making each individual step the best step I can. I have to stay focused on each day so that I not forget that I am dealing with a full-on addiction that must be battled every moment of every day. When I slip, I fall; and I am so tired of falling. I know this sounds like I am in a bad place, but it really isn’t. I am just coming to terms with some reality, and that is not always bright and shiny. It is, however, a necessary part of the journey.

It seems like the hardest parts of any journey are the dingiest and most difficult. I’m sorry you keep falling, but congratulations on getting back up. Mamavation is here for you and we’ve all some bumps, bruises and scars from our falls too.

I can’t tell you how many times I’ve been in your shoes. Seriously – you are so strong and yes we fall… it’s a bumpy ride, that’s for sure, but I love that you keep getting back up! For that, you should be proud!

One step at a time, momma. You might fall or you might leap, but one step at a time until you can run, right? 😀

You know yourself the best and what you need to do to stay focused. Be smart as you work out your game plan.

Take time to heal and rest. We can’t always go forward when we want to, but you still can mentally if not physically. When you can, you can start back slowly to ensure you are strong enough and won’t have further set backs. Frustrating? You bet! But we will still be here for you when you can.
Instead of focusing on what you can’t do, think about what you have control over? Water? Yes… food? yes.. what about making goals or trying meditation for your spiritual health. Whatever works for you and you can be comfortable with.
I wish you the best and will keep you in my thoughts for a speedy recovery.

We all stumble and fall sometimes but you’re right…it’s whether or not you pick yourself up and keep going that matters. Don’t give up. We’re all right here cheering you on and willing to listen if you need anything.
