Woe is me. August 22, 2010

So it has been awhile since my last post.  There are reasons….of course there always are.  I am trying to figure it all out myself.  Seems that my mood and my attitude could use some serious work.  I have been freaking depressed.  Depressed, tired and just feeling old in general.  I feel like something is lacking.  I am just not happy with myself.  It seems that no matter how many pounds I lose or how many goals I reach I am just not satisfied.  I cannot help but to read others blosg and postings and compare my life to theres.  I am not a perky 25 year old that go out and run 15 miles just for fun.  I am also intelligent enough to know that everyone has problems.  It is just hard to remind myself of that.  I have a lot of great things going on in my life, I am soon going on a great trip and have some new exciting challenges at work.  But that is hard to remember sometimes.  I find very difficult still to control my eating and change my habits.  This extreme intensive program has been going on for over a year and I am just simply getting tired. To be honest I feel ugly.  I look at myself and pick my self apart.  Really most days nothing is right.  I can make a full list of all the things about me that I hate.  I see my reflection and only see the frizzy hair, the lines in my forhead, the wrinkles around my eyes.   It doesnt help that I had to take time off….as a matter of fact an entire week off from my workouts and running this week.  I was having some pretty intense pain in my hip so I felt it was best.  I also needed the time off to really think about what I want.  What I REALLY want.  Do I want to continue with what I consider to be extreme running and training.  Do I want to get a handle on my eating and my still bad habits?  Am I prepared to do what it takes no matter what?  Can I mantain the schedue required to do this?  The answer is YES!  Yes I can and I will.  I have made a commitment to run the 1/2 marathon on Sept. 25th and that is what I am going to do.  And I am going to do it well!  I will stick to my training plan without letting up.  Now let me be clear.  That does not mean that I am still not feeling depressed, tired, ugly, and fed up…because I am.  And I am going to try and work on that to.  I am afraid that is going to take a whole lot more than the training for the 1/2 but I want to feel happy.  And this past week without the workouts..I have not felt happy that is for sure.  So I am now on a mission.   And I don’t plan on stopping.  I have come to far to give up on myself.  I am in charge of my own destiny.  I am not prepared to give that up.

How can I give up on this??? 🙂
