I've been absent a while - and had a down slide back to gaining some weight. It's been a crazy few months and things are starting to slow down for me, I hope! Well, in some ways, they are getting busy. I got a job! PT so only 3 short days a week. It will be a nice job.
My husband's workload has been insane - which has contributed to mine. The busy 4th quarter is almost over so soon things will get better I hope.
Right now with the holidays, I am focusing on motivating myself to do better and prepare a plan for reincorporating exercise and healthful eating into my schedule. I need to clean the living room so there is space to work out. I bought a menu mailer we like to get healthy recipes from to make. We used it before and all lost enormous weight. Why did I stop?
I had a rather hurtful encounter with someone who caused some tumult in my life. I've worked my way through that and have come out stronger for it. I read a quote somewhere something along the lines of "you don't need to be a saint - just be deeply human." And it made me realize I can make mistakes, be crabby sometimes, etc and not be a horrible person to condemn. I believe letting go of my perfectionism would go a long way to healing and continuing on a healthful journey.
