I'm glad to be back with spark. I had let everything slide as I pursued the overtime at work this summer. There has been many 7 day workweeks, 72-92 hr work weeks all summer. I managed to do one or two fun things this summer. I found a beach I would actually swim at down here, and went to the rennaissance festival with my sons. I have those memories.
I found out yesterday, that our line at work at the steel mill is being shut down this friday. Our company has built a huge modern pickle/tandem line, and has decided to shut our old one down. But they are working us 7days a week until it shuts down. Many of us are facing layoffs, or hopefully they will place us within the company instead. I know I'm staying until october 12. I am having a hysterectomy, so I will take a medical. My exercise will be limited. So instead, I am going back to what works. I started keeping my food journal, making better choices, I think. When the surgery happens, and I'm off, I'll only be allowed to walk for a bit. So I plotted a one mile, and a two mile markers from my house.
It's almost like I'm going to take a little v-kay here at home. Get to be with my sons, and feel like a family again. It's been like I've only visited my house, and live at work these past few months.
As far as a plan goes, I bought a new biggest loser scale, getting into the habit of tracking my food, and on saturday, taking my body measurements. As I heal, I want to attempt to jog. Well that's all I have for now.
