Update on Mom

Tuesday, November 25, 2014

Mom passed away Friday. Service this Friday. Sad that she suffered with cancer but glad it was not too long. Cannot believe that this is really happening. Hopefully she is enjoying heaven with my Dad, Nanny, Poppy and Aunt Jo and many other family members. I love you Mom and will miss our conversations. I am happy that you are not in pain any more.
Love,
Sandy

  So sorry for your loss.
Glad to hear your mother isn't suffering any more.
I lost my dad last week - he was suffering with Parkinson's.
Take things a day at a time and remember the good times with your mom. emoticon

Well I finally weighed and measured myself after noticing that my middle was less curvy than usual. Although all of my clothes still fit, I feel like my middle has spread a little bit. Being over 50, I knew it was coming so now to get back on track measuring everything and tweaking my exercise program. I am still strong in my sit ups and crunches. I will be trying to do more of both in the months to come. Staying active is important to me so I will be trying more things to help the weight come back off. I think the key for me will be measuring the food and recording more again. This has been a year of changes with me changes jobs after being at my other job for 20 years. My son is out of college working the the work force. My daughter is in her 3rd year of college and she turns 21 in a couple of months. Hard to believe my children are 23 and 21. My husband has had his challenges with his health in the past couple of years but he is finally back on track and now walks with me more often. I think it is time again for me to focus a little more on myself although my new job is taking a lot of time to learn it all, I think I need to take a little more time for me. Hope everyone has a great week!

    Teaching is time-consuming and can easily take us away from our own personal time. I'm glad you are finding time again to focus on taking care of you (and your family). I find tracking still is an important part of my daily routine.
I hope you are having a great year and that your new class is loving you!

Well my new job starts in a week from Monday. Going for training on Thursday, Friday and Saturday. It has been 20 years since I have changed jobs. Excited and nervous at the same time. Teaching for the past 28 years and starting my 29th in a new district as well as helping start a new school for Gifted students. Extremely excited for the challenge as well as a little nervous.
I have been walking each day and trying to watch what I am eating. This last year has been a little more challenging trying to keep the weight off. Turning 50 has definitely challenged me in trying to keep my weight in check. I will continue to work hard each day and watch what I eat as well as stay active!
Have a wonderful week everyone!
