I have to do better...

Monday, January 10, 2011

A lot has happened since I last logged onto the site... I read my last blog entry, written on Dec. 20th 2009 and I was talking about my grandmother's declining health... The day after I wrote that entry, she passed of stomach cancer. Life surely hasn't been the same since. I went to Haiti to attend her funeral, and on the day before I was scheduled to come back home (Montreal), I ended up surviving the devastating earthquake on Jan. 12th 2010... Since then, I have dealt with post-traumatic stress/shock, emotional eating, anxiety attacks, nightmares...etc. Wait! Have I mentioned that life hasn't been the same? On the bright side, I graduated from University of Ottawa with a Bachelor of Sciences in Nursing, I've developed a closer and healthier relationship with God, I've embraced real friendships, real love, and family... I've traveled. I got a hair cut! I've joined Curves and quit after a month (it just wasn't for me, but worth a try) and then joined another gym near my house that meets my needs, especially with their Zumba classes.... Im doing my best, however, I am certainly not looking the part. I know I have to do better. I know I can do better. I'm glad to be back here. Looking forward to getting all of the support and resources I can get out of this wonderful community!
Happy New Year to All! emoticon

    First of I will like to say my condolences to you for your Grandmother passing. emoticon Yes, I was raise in Puerto Rico and they told me about the earthquake, it was shocking to hear. emoticon About you being stress and emotional eating is understandable. emoticon Congrats on graduating! emoticon emoticon I understand able not liking curves and going to another gym that have dancing incorporated in the gym..i love dancing. You need to stop putting yourself down you are closer now than you was when you started in the beginning. Just because things happen is no reason to see it like a failure you think about a minor set back. remember to try to exercise 3-4 times a day and drink plenty or water. KEEP UP THE GREAT JOB AND IF YOU NEED SOME HELP I AM HERE FOR YOU. emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

    I'm sorry for all that has happened to you. Just trust in the Lord & He'll direct you.
    Keep your head up & just take it a day at a time & don't worry about tomorrow or the past. When you workout focus on how much stress it's relieving.
