My last Blog was on Aug. 26th and I actually thought it had been longer than that. I stopped writing them because I let a lot of things drag me down to the point that I just lost my Mojo. I even backed off on posting on message boards because I didn't want to drag down others and posted only in my up moments.
Don't get me wrong here. Sparkpeople blogs and message boards are great and if you need someone to help you get a rough spot then you should pour out your heart and get the support you need. That doesn't work for me. I'm not comfortable doing that because I know there are others who are having a rougher time than I am so I don't want people spending their energy on me. I know, I know - that's silly and my wife has told me that many times. She's right but that's how I'm wired. I just need time to work through the rough times and then I get on with being me. I am driven to be a positive influence and I can't change that so when I can't I just back off. I have blogged many times that we have to do what works for us. That's what I do.
My one bright spot through all of the turmoil is that I have maintained my focus on my family and the spark program. My weight has remained rock solid for 2 months and as I get more energy I am getting more active. That, in turn, is making me feel more upbeat.
Now, is there a lesson in her someplace? Maybe the real Lew would say, "When life is a challenge, focus on the most important stuff and let the other things slide for a while".
Enjoy the ride,
