Johanne's Journal, 31 July 2012

It's Monday, yet again.

I'm following my own advice and journaling. It's been awhile and I'm sorry for that. I feel kind of brain-dead at the moment. I have no idea how much of that is residual from my heart attack, gall bladder surgery and general anesthesia. It seems like all of that should have worn off by now. I'm going to try to get on every day again whether I have anything to say or not. LOL! I will be checking in on buddies journals tomorrow as today is already pretty late. I HAVE been faithfully recording my food. Now I just have to figure out how to banish my lethargy. To that end, I have listed a challenge. I sent out invitations and hope that some of you will join me.

Sandy, I'm glad you joined my challenge. I know I feel like I'm starting from scratch every morning. I'm like Stef. I've just been in the doldrums for so long. I needed to put myself out there at a level I felt I could handle. Love you! See you tomorrow.

Tracy, I haven't had the strength to be kind to myself . . . not of mind or body. I'm hoping my new challenge wakes me up and gets me back to work, in more ways than one. It's been a rough year so far from February on. All of my buddies being there for me, even though I've been absent for so long, helps!

Bren, I'm so glad you're on board with the challenge. The more the merrier! I'm hoping it gets my head back together, which seems to be more important at this time than the physical stuff. Have a great evening. Love you too!!!

Stef, you and I seem to have been on the same roller coaster since last year. Maybe the next 12 weeks can get our heads back in the right place. It's mostly a mental game. That's why I wrote the challenge the way I did. When I used to dance, I would sit down with the music and go over the the routine, over and over again in my head. When I got up, I could dance it flawlessly, even though I hadn't done a step of it before. The mind is a powerful thing. My mind is going to see me successful by this time next year. I love you too. Together, we CAN do this.
