Feeling like a hippo

Do you ever have days where everything seems so much harder than it should be?

Have you ever just wanted to bury yourself under the covers and say, "call me when the sun's out"...?

Today is such a day for me... I'm feeling like a hippo. I just want to crawl to the bottom of my world and lie totally still so no one knows I'm here... I'll only resurface when I need to breathe... or will I...?

No I won't.

Instead, I'll drag my sorry butt out the door and visit my new lover - Gym! Perhaps getting sweaty and raising my heart rate will have me feeling less like a hippo and more like a gazelle... I'll keep you posted.

What do you do when you feel like a hippo?

Until tomorrow,
Grace :-)

  1. You have dealt with your weight like a trooper over the years and if we(the blog followers) can inspire you to "resurface" as often as needed then, here we are!

    We cannot be in a constantly positive frame of mind. Allow yourself to go down every once in a while, and that low point will remind you how fantastic a high point is! Chin up Grace, you are on the right path (or tread-mill).

    A quote for you that might not apply to you directly for this but is nonetheless invaluable, "I wept because I had no shoes until I saw a man with no feet".


  2. What a lovely quote.

    Am still reading your blogs Grace, just don't have one of the above accounts as of yet.
