It's been a while.
First, thank you for all the thoughts and prayers. After my Grandma fell on December 17, she earned her angel wings on December 29. It was a very sad two weeks, and I absolutely stopped caring about what I was eating or doing. It is comforting to know that she is now no longer in pain, and in a better place with my Grandpa.
Due to the blizzard and constantly being at the hospital/Hospice, I didn't exercise. And I paid for it.
I, according to a new scale at my parents' house, gained 9 pounds. I'm sure some of this is water weight, due to eating crappy salty fatty food. But still. 9 pounds.
What I'm thankful for is that I'm ready to refocus. Some people have deaths in the family and fall off the wagon for months, or even years. I'm glad mine was only two weeks.
It may take me a few months to get back to the 182 I was at, or it might take me a few weeks, depending on how focused I am, but what I know now is that I'm back to being active on Spark People.
I'm going to try to catch up on your blogs, start tracking all my food again, and get back to exercising regularly.
My boyfriend, J.D., played his last collegiate football game on December 28. It was his only game I've ever missed, but he won the Independence Bowl vs. U-Lousiana Monroe 45-14. If you watched, you might have even seen him get a 15 yard penalty for Unnecessary Roughness? LOL. It was a stupid call, but he said he only got it so his name would be on ESPN.
Now, he's doing a modified Paleo Diet which I think will definitely help me stay on track.
I just want to say, sorry for letting you down and being inactive for a while. I feel bad about the 9 pounds, but I promise I won't have them for long.
Thank you for all your continued support.
I love you, Sparkfriends! Happy New Year!
