2012 start off

Wednesday, December 14, 2011

I am praying and hoping 2012 will be a better year than last.
The last 4 months was so stressing that made me lose
track of working out and keeping fit. Seems everything was
happening one thing after another. The 2011 ends with
my mom put into a nursing home for 24 hr care. Its heartbreaking
to see your mom age to a point they need nursing care around
the clock and they think they can take care of themselves.

After seeing what my mom is going through, it actually makes you
more aware one needs to be healthy and fit and not to let yourself
give up. You realize how life is so short and precious that you need
to keep fit to live as long as you can on your own.

I know 2012 will start off on the right track, that in middle of January
I will be a grandma for the 1st time and so looking forward to it.

My new year resolution is to be healthy, fit and stop with all the
excuses of NOT working out and keep myself moving.

    Hi MOM195;

My last part of the year was not the best but I just accept it and cook my dinners and celebrate the specials days by myself. Since my husband died it is like I have vanished. Make this year your best year, Make it a very healthy year and have fun doing it. Learn something new every day. God bless you always.

Smile Joyce

    I know what you are going through and am sending prayers your way. The up side is now you don't have to worry about something happening to your mom while she is alone - that was a huge fear of mine before my mom agreed to go into a nursing home. I'm SO with you on the need to stay healthy and fit - I don't want to end my life with the health issues my mom had (she was diabetic) if there is any way to prevent it. emoticon

    So sorry 2011 has been so tough. Being a grandma myself, I know how important it is to be healthy, not only for me, but for my family.

Good luck in 2012, you can do this!

Thank you for sharing!
