It Aint Much, But It’ll do

Monday, May 14, 2012

Hello there. Remember me? Yeah, I was the one working hard at losing weight, tracking my fitness, my food, my goals for me and my life. Remember me yet? How about all the hiking I did? The goals accomplished? The workouts at home to dvd’s, which are stashed in my closet, right next to the exercise bands? How about now… remember yet? I vaguely do.

I’m not saying I’m back. I’m not saying I’m present and accounted for. But what I can say is I’m still around, slowly getting back to my new normal, just now I get to figure out how to start over on this stuff with a 1 year old in tow.

I know what your thinking- Just throw her in the stroller and go for walks; Get a carrier to carry her on your back; It’s not that simple. And if anyone has a 1 year old, or can remember what it was like to have a 1 year old, nothing is EVER that simple.

Since I had my daughter in 2011, a lot has happened. For some odd reason, I was (still am) retaining water. It’s gotten better, but every now and then it bothers me. I also sprained my ankle. THAT was fun! I then had surgery to remove my gallbladder. That was even more fun. Then my plantar fasciitis decided to act up, in a big, angry, “I never want you to walk again” type of way. Add in the advancement in career, training, and just learning the things I didn’t know prior to becoming an agent. Which by the way, I won the 2011 Customer Service Award from Grange Insurance… It’s pretty big top honors since there are more than 1200 agents and only about 10 of us won. And of course there is my beautiful terror of a daughter.

So, those can be considered excuses. Or they can be minor set-backs, as I wanna call them.

Now that the sun is finally here, I’ve got my new orthotics and other stuff for my feet (still working on this one though), I finally feel I can address my weight-loss. It won’t be much, but like before as time goes on I’ll be right back in it, right back to wearing my smaller pants, eating better, closing in on my goals for weight-loss, life, and now my family.

It Aint Much, But It’ll do for now.

OH and here's some pix of my mini-me. Haven't posted anything new on her since she was born:

    I don't think ANY Mother can forget life with a one year old. Actually, we all remember the hellacious schedule with having a kid through the first TWO years. After that they get easier. Promise. But then, they become teenagers, and it all starts all over again.

    On the Bright Side: You will survive. You will endure. You will go nuts.

    Always your friend,
