Taking some time off

Saturday, August 25, 2012

I truly messed up my healthy eating this past week.
So I took a few days off from my computer.
And I have decided that that is okay.

I fell down a couple of stairs a week ago, of which I got a huge bruise on my rear end. But I also landed on my left knee, and I had both of my knees replaced 5 years ago. It did not do me any good to have fallen like that. So I have taken the week off from exercise as well, trying to recover. I have had to also help my daughter, with her daughter.

I plan to be back at exercise on Monday. I also plan to be back to eating better.

    Yes - it's okay to take a few days off... Life becomes quite complicated when grandkids are added to the now empty nesting chapter of our lives. LOVE my grandkids! So grateful to be so close to them! Just spent 4 days with all of them! whew! we're tired. Still have baby until tomorrow afternoon..., but one baby is a walk in the park after the 5 and 3 yr old! :-)

    I've been AWOL on SP messages for several weeks so let me congratulate you on your new granddaughter. She is precious.

And how is your daughter now? I hope she is recovering well and the depression is lifting.

And did you get over the fall? That could have been very serious.

Hope to hear things have improved since your previous blogs.

We all face challenges and sometimes feel like life just sucks us up! I sometimes feel overwhelmed and get off track myself.

I have kept a few articles aside for easy reference for times like may find them helpful as I have:

[too bad they don't give us a way to make a link out this!]

Hope this helps somewhat...

Hang in there and take care!
