Back again....

Wednesday, March 14, 2012

I had no idea I had not been on the site since November. Guess that means that time just flies, not necessarily that I have been having fun.

Anyway as an update as to why I have been absent for so long again. We now have full legal custody of my 5 year old granddaughter, Athena. Between getting her caught up academically and making sure she gets to her counseling appointments, trying to keep up with the house, AND working 12 hour nights I have found myself just a tad overwhelmed. During all of this some of the weight I fought so hard to lose has crept back on. I recently discovered that there may be some extenuating factors to the weight gain as well but that might be TMI for some of our members so I am going to just leave it with that.

In a nutshell I am now trying to address that underlying reason for the weight gain as well as figure out some way to get a regular exercise routine back in place. Gone are the days when I had time for 1 hour cardio sessions, that's for sure.

I'll post more later when work is not calling my name. Hope everyone is doing well.

    Thanks for sharing your thoughts, it is so easy to get away from a healthy lifestyle which includes (I believe) SP. I give you major kudos for coming back given your very busy schedule. I can not imagine having been childless then all of a sudden been given a 5 year old, that in itself is reason to throw in the (getting back to a healthier lifestyle) towel. But you are being a great role model to your granddaughter and showing her that even with a busy lifestyle you can make time for yourself. You can incorporate 10 minute walks and do that three times a day for a total of 30 minutes. You will find time to get your exercise in, find it in everyday life, for me I park furthest from the grocery store or bank. I take stairs instead of the elevator if I have enough time and its not too many stairs. LOL. I wish you the best and want to let you know you are definately not alone on this journey..... emoticon
