Starting to thaw

Wednesday, May 02, 2012

I'm not gonna apologize for my absence, things just turned out like that.
I just realized that today it is four years since I logged on to Spark for the first time.

Thinking back now...
As low as I have been lately, I felt even worse back then...
As hard as it is to keep moving consistently, It was harder to get started...
As much as I have fallen back on old habits and dropped from Spark since my Dad's death, I am still doing more and with much more awareness than in April 2008...

I'm beginning to see the light at the ene of the tunell I've been crawling through the last months.

The summer is approaching and we spend more time outside and "things" at work will settle down. I hope this will make it a bit easier for me to devote some more time to SP because I miss you, and i do so much better when i am tracking food and fitness instead of just guesstimating the food and do my workouts.

It's time I pulled on my heart rate monitor and started counting more than workouts and time spent doing it. I KNOW it'll fire me right back up and put me back on the train to weightloss.

Four years, huh. Who'd have thunk it.

    Hi honey!!!!!
So nice to see you. I am happy you thawed out, came back to life, and came to see us. How's THAT for cryogenics!?

Happy spring.

    We miss you too, Marit. It's good to see you here - whenever you can be. I hope the light at the end of that tunnel continues to get brighter and brighter.

    4 years.

Things have changed for both of us during that time. You more than me.

Who knew all this cardio was not just to make us cuter but also to make us stronger and better able to get through adversity?

    Hey, Beautiful!

I really liked this: "I'm not gonna apologize for my absence, things just turned out like that."

Nobody should feel like they need to apologise when real life takes precidence.

And I'm so glad to hear from you... I miss you, too... and I'm gald you can say all fo ther est. 'Sparking' is something that can just take hold of your spirit and, once it becomes part of you, there really is no going back to where you started.

...we're all still here (to varying degrees... life is still pretty challenging for me, too) and will be so happy to see youa round more!

Continued prayers and
{{{{{{{{{ HUGS }}}}}}}}}
Ramona

    Ayee I am in exactly the same spot but I am not grieving for a loved one. Haven't used the monitor in ages. It feels like a tunnel. And i am crawling too. Same thing about how I am not as bad off as pre Spark. But not as great as daily Spark either. And bad habits. Oh yes...

Always glad to read your blogs. Hope for both our sakes we can get back to it.
