I haven't blogged for a while because I've been busy, suffering with some health issues and evaluating my fitness program and how I'm doing. After a long appointment with my doctor, I decided to stop tracking my food for a while and to work out a bit less and a bit differently. I won't go into detail but my joints are highly stressed and I've become too obsessed with exercise and weight loss which puts me in danger for an Anorexia relapse. So with the advice of my doc, backed up by my husband, I'm going to stop tracking my food and I'm not going to stress about getting 60 minutes of exercise each day. 30-45 minutes will be enough and won't be so hard on my joints.
I won't be completely gone from SP but I will be spending much less time here. I will still make being fit and healthy a priority but it can't be the number one thing in my life. I have a house and husband to care for, my animals and of course my job and other hobbies. I can't spend every waking minute on SP or worrying about my food, my weight, the number on the scale. Lately I've been obsessing and that has brought me very close to a relapse, something I can't afford to happen. Not only would my physical and medical health suffer, but also my marriage because my husband won't be so patient and understanding a second time around. So I've got to gain some perspective on this and I feel this is what is best for me at this time.
I will still be exercising but won't be blogging a whole lot, maybe once every week or two. I will still be following a few blogs but I will be behind so please don't think I'm ignoring you, my few special friends and you know who you are!
Good luck to you all and know that my thoughts are with you and you have my full support! I'll be seeing you, just not as often! Wish me well and take care of yourselves! I love my sparkfriends and that will NEVER change!
