July - My Month of Freedom

Wednesday, July 04, 2012

I am giving myself freedom this month - I am taking July off. No weighing in, no measurements, and no tracking of food. I will track my fitness now and then though, I want to keep my fitness minutes going up.

Between still figuring out what's going to happen with the mass in my arm, having a difficult time so far this mod at school and just getting frustrated I finally realized I just need some time off. I will be trying to get back into my 5K training because I do want to participate in the Virtual 5K at the end of the month, but otherwise I just want to do whatever strikes my fancy without feeling like I *have* to do things. (Did any of that make sense?)

I will still check in every day to spin the wheel, check in on teams and statuses and leave the occasional Huddle comment - but otherwise, I need time. I need to take care of me right now. I know I'm not really as active as I could be here to begin with, but now I'm going to be even more scarce and for those who will miss me - know you are in my thoughts even if I'm not here to tell you that.

I am grateful for SparkPeople and for what it has helped me accomplish. But now I need some time just for me. I know you all understand that. I Thank You for your thoughts & prayers & support. I will post updates about my arm as I have them. My ER Follow-Up with my primary care physician is Friday afternoon - I'll try to post either Friday night or Saturday about it.

I pray all of you have had a Sparktacular 4th of July filled with lots of love & laughter with family and friends.

In Gratitude & Love,

    Thank you for letting us know what's going on. We'd have to worry otherwise, and that would be awful! We'll miss you!

    Good luck! Sometimes its good to take a break so you can only focus on being healthly and not all numbers all the time.

    If you are taking care of you this month, I hope that healthy eating is part of your self care, even if you are not tracking.
