Ahhh 2012. The year that everything was supposed to be great! This has been one of the worst years ever. For my career. For my family. For my health. For my weight. Everything!
The year started out good. I was finally moving forward in my career. Finally feeling like I was getting somewhere. Then about May, a wonderful opportunity happened for my family. We sold our house, moved, and staked everything on this. Things were going great....flash forward to December....
December changed everything. My entire family lost our jobs. Me, my husband, and two of our children. It was bad. It affected us. Mentally drained, trying to figure out what to do, where to go....just bad.
Things are finally looking up. We just got jobs, and are waiting to hear about a house. Moving back to where we used to be. I want to go ahead and get into school and finish my nursing degree. It's a little harder for me because it is my second Bachelors degree and there just isn't any financial aid available for that.
That being said, I packed on the lbs this year. At the end of December, I decided it is time to get my crap together. I am working on it! I have lost 10 lbs so far. Still struggling with alcohol. Still struggling with food demons. Every little thing. So hard! Since I joined the January fitness jumpstart challenge I am starting to feel a little better. I feel stronger. I feel better mentally. Just better.
I just hope everything continues on a more positive path. We can get through this. We have been through worse.
Starting over. Again. Seems harder when you are almost 40!
