I just got on here and was looking at my blog for January. So much has changed since then, for the good in my opinion. I'm reconciled with DH and we are back together and living back in our 5th wheel. Moving from a 5th wheel to a 3 bdrm house is an easy thing, but moving from that 3 bdrm house back into the 5th wheel is not quite so easy. We are going through getting rid of finding places to keep things and have big storage unit.
I made some goals on my blog in January. Some of them are in the works and others are still in the planning.
I am back to work at the track now. I didn't ever find a temporary job during the off time, so I think that this year I will be saving to cover that time.
I have been getting to the gym on a more consistent basis. It's been a little tougher now that I'm back at work, but I'm still getting in there some and making a point of getting more movement in my everyday living.
The scale hasn't moved down as much as I would like, but it is moving down, and more importantly, I feel better and my clothes are getting too big.
I've learned some hard lessons over the past year and will work to make sure that the things that happened last year don't happen again, but I don't want to forget them either.
If it weren't for a few of my very dear friends on here, I'm not sure where I'd be mentally right now. You have been beyond words to me. I love you all dearly and if there is ever anything I can do to help you all you have to do is say the word.
I am looking forward to the second half of this year to be a happy and productive one. I hope it is for all of my friends as well.

Well, I started 2013 out differently than I've started a new year in a very long time. I guess that is a sign that I'm going to do things differently this year.
I've been sitting here today thinking of the changes that have happened over the past year and the changes I need to happen in this coming year.
I've lived a year of turmoil and it has played havoc with me. More so I think than any other.
It's time to let the past go and make the needed changes for the future. Just typing that statement is scary, but here goes.
This year I need to meet some goals. I have set so many over the years and have just let them slide by. That has to stop. So my first goal is to STICK TO IT.
I'm going to put these goals down so that I can't just pretend I didn't make them when I let one slip up. Don't get me wrong, I know that I may not hit every goal exactly as I plan, but if I don't try I won't hit any at all.
#1. I still have 60 lbs to lose, so a long term goal is to get that 60 lbs gone this year. (2013).
#2. A little shorter term. In the month of January I'm going to get back into gear with my Body By Vi. Starting my new 90 day challenge tomorrow, January 2, 2013. This 90 day challenge will be to lose 25 lbs and exercise at the gym 3 days a week.
#3. Probably should be #1, but, anyway #3 is to find a job. At this point it can be a temporary to fill in until the track opens again in April or a more permanent full time position. I really don't care which, but a permanent one will have to be something I think I can really sink my teeth into.
#4 get my finances in shape. Start putting money into my savings and getting my bills all paid. Quit spending on things I don't need.
I'm going to stop at 4 for right now. They are all BIG goals for me, so I don't want to set myself up for failure right off the bat by setting more than I can chew.
I'm so thankful to have a place that I can air this all out without fear of recriminations. All of my friends on here are so supportive and will help me to get it together with your support.
Don't be afraid to call me out if you see me slipping.

Well, I went and paid the rent for my new place today. It is a very small FEMA trailer. I must admit though that it is in much better condition than I was afraid it would be. It is a temporary stop on the new journey I'm taking. It will let me get back on my feet and figure out what I'm doing. I'll probably move in on my days off this week. Not really much to move in to it though, just my clothes, tv and computer is going to be about all that will fit. Oh and somehow I've got to get my sewing machine in too. I've got lots of sewing to get done. It kind of makes all this really real now. Up to this point I could just believe it was a bad dream. Time to get on with it. I'll get it fixed up for me and get my act together and see what I can do to go forward from there.

I always thought changes only happened to you when you were young. I thought once you were grown, married, had kids and grandkids all the major changes would stop.
Boy was I ever wrong. Everytime in my life that I think things are right where they should be, WHAM, here come the changes.
I know change is good, but I could do with a little less all at once, if you know what I mean.
This has been a long hard week for me. My whole world has been turned upside down. I'm still not quite sure in which direction this change will take me, but I'm taking it one day at a time and am finally starting to be able to breathe without it feeling like my heart's going to jump out of my throat.
I still have lots to do before I can even sit back and take it in, but I know that the time will get here. When it does, I think I'll take me a short little trip and spend some time all by myself to get it in perspective.
I want to thank each and every one of you my very dear Spark friends for helping me through this time. I don't know what I would have done if not for you and some very dear friends right here. If I hadn't had y'all to come and just let it all out to, I'm not sure I could've gotten through this and remained sane. Your support has meant everything to me.
