Still here... just taking a SP break

Wednesday, December 26, 2012

Hi folks,

I got all the wonderful goodies from my lovely, fantastic Sparkers - and I am so grateful. I promise I'm still here (and even losing a bit of weight - although that is more due to training than any eating on my part). I'm just dealing with some hard family stuff at the moment (my Mom's MS is getting worse, her house isn't safe for her, and my Uncle has been back to the hospital 3 times now). My brother comes in tomorrow, Hubbie has been trying to help (but in turn driving me crazy) and work is an epic disaster of stress-ti-tude.

To be honest, I just need a breather. I will be back in time for the BLC round 21. But I have not forgotten you all, and you are all still in my thoughts.

My race is coming up, and despite the family drama - I haven't missed TOOOOO many runs (I did miss a few though) so I'm keeping my fingers crossed that I can still Goofy it out. 2 people I know now (plus Sean Astin, the actor) have dropped out of the Goofy due to personal injury - but I'm still going strong. In fact, I even bought a costume to wear for the Half on Saturday (I'm wearing ALL Kermit clothes. Very excited!).

So day by day, step by step. Please feel free to write me, and I will respond... but you might not see me on here for the next little bit without proding.

Love to all of you, and I really do miss you. But something had to give - and unfortunately computer time came first.

    I understand the break part. I hope all things smooth out for you as well as they can. Keep well and happy.

    I hear you on needing a break but I am finally looking forward to BLC21. Did you see that the lady runner is going to Goofy also and I think she said some other Sparkers.

    The ultimate test in a healthier lifestyle is life itself. It's sort of like how life happens while we stop and make plans. Once we learn the tools, we learn how to incorporate and make better decisions even in the midst of when life hits us hard.

Know you are not in it alone and do what you need to do for you! That's the good thing about SP.........they don't hound you, but they are here for you and they are a support team for you when you need them. They give you the tools you need to adapt to your lifestyle and they don't condemn you when you have to put them on the back burner to deal with real life issues.

Hang in there!
