Two Steps Forward, Three Back


I’m starting to feel the old, “What’s the use?” ennui kick in when it comes to my resolve for some of the changes I want to make.

I’ve “worked out” (meaning Wii games or a walk) nearly every day in January. I’ve had eight weeks of physical therapy. I’ve tracked my WW points/eating every day for two and a half weeks. I’m making progress on several small projects (recipe clipping/filing, using a pumice stone on 1-2 shower tiles a day).

But there doesn’t seem to be any progress. Now I have a stack of clipped recipes that need to be transcribed into my electronic cookbook. I have a shower that’s 1/5th bright and shiny and 4/5ths dull and dingy. I’ve lost 3 lbs. My back hurts nearly as much as it ever did.

But I guess I’ll keep on keeping on and give up giving up. Because it’s what we do. Put one foot in front of the other. Slow progress is better than none.

I keep telling myself.


Today I’m praying for: Jim, Jim, Janet, and Lucie.

Currently reading: Shade by John B. Olson – so far, it’s great!

Last movie: Bottle Shock – we both really enjoyed it. Click here for more on this.

  1. Glad to hear you liked "Bottle Shock." It's in my Netflix queue.

    I'm with you on the "keep on keeping on and give up giving up." I think it's winter that just kinda puts a fog over life in general. I know, I sound like Eeyore.
