My sincerest apologies to the FSC -- I've been hiding.


I missed a couple of days becasue of my schedule and then my mind took over and I stayed away. I actually have had anxiety about coming back or deciding it was time to give up the ghost and quit.

I won't say that I was really bad while I was gone, because I really wasn't, but I wasn't that great either. I've made some improvements in certain areas but totally gave up in others.

But instead of quitting, a few things have happened since I left that has really helped give me a nudge or two to try again.

1. A co-worker lost his wife to a heart attack....she was 30 years old! She wasn't overweight, but she had high blood pressure and a lot of stress.

2. Had a wonderful health presentation at work on metabolism. Gave me a few good ideas. Also found out that I'm included in a program through work to take 4 months of classes on weight loss, nutrition, healthy living, fitness, etc. through our local hospital. It will start in August.

3. I went camping for the first time since my mom passed away 3 years ago. We rented a camper. It had a small bathroom in the camper that wouldn't be a problem for most people, but I BARELY fit. It makes you think about your priorities when going to the bathroom becomes a concern.

4. My wonderful FSC friends who stopped by and nudged me to see if I would reappear.

Well, here I am. I will be back for the July challenges. I'm ready to get out of my funk and find my diva-groove again. I missed you guys!

    Hi i'm new but saw your blog and love cats, your picture! It's kind of funny that you mentioned bathrooms, because just the other day I asked my friend the samething(why is it that in the public bathrooms, it's like they want you to be squished against the towlet paper holder) They couldn't give us just a little more room? Oh well that's just me. Again I liked reading and hope to see you around! emoticon
