Sorry, Sparkfriends--I've been remiss. The thing is, life has been very very full in recent weeks: two trips (including a three-day literary festival), finishing up judging the poetry contest, trying hard not to fall behind in my day job, reviewing a VERY long poetry-book manuscript (freelance job), accompanying my Indian friend to the hospital because her English isn't very strong yet (the news was good, thank God!), etc. etc. etc.
Having the divorce over with really did allow me to shift gears, but my life has a LOT of gears to shift at the moment!
And I have to confess that my good intentions haven't been strong enough to keep me on track with exercise & eating during these weeks. That's another reason I haven't blogged--I don't feel too proud of myself as a Sparker/Starfish. It could have been LOTS worse--I haven't gone on any ridiculous binges or anything--but I'm a bit anxious about our next weigh-in (I'll be in town this time, after being away the past two Saturdays). My clothes feel snugger than they did, so I'm pretty sure the numbers will go up a bit instead of down.
I need to figure out how to get back on track without neglecting the various balls that I'm juggling these days. Gearshifting & juggling--there's a mixed metaphor for ya. I guess my life IS a mixed metaphor these days!
