On again!


Sunday, January 08, 2012

This seems to be another start in a long line of stops and starts, but hey, it's a start!
I am having major surgery in Feb and I am trying to be as ready as possible. I have a housekeeper that I am hiring to help me get my home as clean and as ready as possible and hopefully she'll be able to help me with carpool and grocery shopping post op. It's a huge splurge and I've never had a cleaning person before. I hope that helps to free up some additional exercise time as well.

I am going to try to let my fears of cancer go and just wait until I know for sure what I am dealing with. In the meantime, I am just going to try to enjoy the simple things with my family.

I do have goals for this year. I am going to aim to lose 35-40 pounds in 2012 and be fit and strong and energetic. I know it can happen especially if I get my anemia under control with this surgery.

So many things seem to be shouting for my time, and I only have so many hours in the day. I feel pretty overwhelmed but I hope to fix that gradually with my new housekeeper and my new goals for this new year.

Please keep me posted on YOUR new goals for the new year. It so encourages me to hear of your plans and successes!

Love to you all!

    A housekeeper makes good sense and will help to optimize your time with your family. Positive thoughts keep your immune system happy. Hooray for your goals and getting healthy is such a major goal. I am just gearing up to set new goals and try again to lose weight and improve my health. I am a block away so email me if you need anything and email me just to talk whenever. Get well soon. I miss seeing you and the dogs. Take good care of yourself. emoticon

    A house-cleaner is a serious luxury! I hate cleaning!
I just moved my mom into a senior retirement type place, it's more like a resort. Housekeeping once a week, breakfast & dinner in the dining room or take out to your apartment if you want. To me that is retirement, no cleaning or cooking!

As someone who has survived a serious illness and lives with the possibility a relapse, I applaud your attitude of not freaking out until you actually have something to freak out about, and even then we can't sustain panic mode for long periods, all it does is stress the immune system and that's the last thing we need when trying to be healthy!
