OK, can you believe there was two days in a row that I actually forgot to exercise?!? It didn't even occur to me. Not once, all day long. Does that give you a clue on what kind of a week it has been?
I hesitate to say some of this but I think this site no one knows me or my family and I know I would feel better getting it all written down.
Let's see, where to start... We could start the day after Christmas, my husbands brother who leaves in Colorado (I live in Indiana) called us to say that he had just visited their mom in Michigan. Their mom has Huntington's Disease and lives with another brother, we will call him JL (there are 9 kids in all). CO brother says he believed that JL needed a break and he wanted mom to move somewhere else at least temporarily. Well my husband and I had since a few small things that we didn't like so we agreed with CO Bro. Long story short we started talking to other members of the family and they all saw the same and different things. We decided we didn't like what was happening to mom. One brother the eldest didn't really want anything to do with the whole thing. Then CO Bro wrote an email describing exactly what he saw on Christmas day. What he wrote was horrible. My mother-in-law is being abused and neglected. None of the rest of us saw the whole picture. We always went to see mom, we spent a very short amount of time in the house and would take mom out of the house and spend the day with her, to give JL and his wife a break. Well the good news is that mom will be living the house this weekend. The Eldest is going to get her and we will be driving up to MI to get mom next weekend. Then we or another Brother that lives in Indiana will take her half way to CO (Kansas City) and CO Bro will get her from there. I am having a very difficult time with why I didn't see this. JL and wife have been taking care of mom for 2 years now. How long this has been going on, I do not know and I am heart broken over the whole thing. What must mom think of all of her children who let this go on?
Besides all of that going on both of my kids have been sick and both of our cars were broken into on Monday night. The only thing i have of any value in my car was my GPS and my husband keeps nothing in his. Obviously if whoever was willing to be out in the middle of the night in 5 degree weather than he needed it more than I. I am just more upset about it was a gift and with my husband being laid off for 4 months now we don't have the money to replace it.
Anyway, I am not quite at ease yet. I will be when we get mom to CO Bro. The kids are better though and my husband has a lunch with someone who maybe able to hire him. Things are looking up.
Thanks for Reading.

So here we are. "Another year over, a new one just began." As one of my favorite Christmas song goes. I am sitting here reflecting on the last 12 months. I have come a long way, worked hard and reached my goal. Then I slacked big time and gained about 5-6 lbs back. I have been beating myself up for the last couple of months for not exercising on a regular basis and letting my sugar addiction come back in, but really, have I done so bad really?? At the beginning of the year I made a goal for my exercise minutes of 12,035 minutes, well I have pretty much shattered that goal. To date I have 14,518! So I can't be doing that bad right?! I have often told my friends and team mates not to beat themselves up. This is not an easy journey, but no journey worth taking is very easy, is it? Yet I don't think twice about only looking at what I am doing wrong and not what I am doing right!
So as I start thinking about what my goals will be for 2010 one I know for sure is to do the best that I can everyday, but if that doesn't happen NO BEATING MYSELF UP!!
Happy Holidays my friends and thanks for reading.

I haven't been doing any exercising so to speak but I have been re-doing my living room. I tore up carpet, filled holes, taped and moved furniture. I am feeling pretty good. I have been slowly getting my eating habits back in line.
Everything is good. I get on about once a day to spin and check out the introduction threads. I post my spin points and water intake every couple days. This is going to be a very busy season and I have decided if I can stay within my goal range through the end of the year I will reward myself with my first tattoo. I am 36 years old and have wanted one for the last 5-10 years so I am going to do it!
Thanks for reading!
