365 Days of Baby Steps

I am determined to improve my health as best I can. That is one of the reasons I work on my mental illness issues so diligently. I know that as I improve my emotional, spiritual and mental health, my physical health will improve.

 My life is very sedentary. I sit most of my day. I get shortness of breath putting on my socks. That is where I am starting, doing simple breathing exercises to improve my lung capacity.

My School Progress

I ended up having to drop the class I was enrolled in for Spring Term 2016. The class was a combination of 2 classes: Writing and Theology. It required 5 textbooks, which should have been my tipoff, LOL I became overwhelmed and when I was reading my assignments, my brain would go blank and I could not retain or even comprehend what I was reading. I talked to my psychotherapist about it and she said I was overwhelmed. I was flunking the class so I contacted my advisor and told him what Sandy told me and he arranged for me to drop the class. That way, I retain my 4.0 status. I am enrolled in a basic writing class for Fall 2016.

365 Days of Gratitude

Today Friday, May 20th of 2016, I am grateful for seeing realistic solutions to problems I have that I used to dismiss because I didn't know how to move forward. I am learning how to keep moving forward now in a positive and productive way. For example, I am at Point A( my living room is in dire need of cleaning)  and I want to get myself to Point B( cleaned up living room). I am getting myself to Point B more often now because I am figuring out how to get myself there realistically.( taking realistically into consideration what I can accomplish daily)
