Round 2...

Monday, March 04, 2013

Well... I started on SparkPeople back in the fall of 2012. I was super motivated and ready for a change... then another life setback changed all of that. At the end of September, my husband lost his job. Ugh. He and I have been through the ringer with job loss in these last few years and I've gained a few extra gray hairs because of it, I'm sure. Well... depression set in big time. After me losing my teaching job, then my husband losing his, our new marriage was really strained.

So fast forward through the holidays where I surely gained all the weight back I lost in the fall and into March 2013. My husband got a new job (not a great job, but it's something) and I have been working in a relatively new job since October 2012. We are far from comfortable, but we are now getting by. We started working out together (just yesterday) and I can already see a positive change in our relationship. We are hoping to have children once our careers stabilize (and my weight). It's nice to have that extra motivation with you all the time.

So, here's to Round 2! I think we hit the worst patch we could possibly hit, so it can only get better from here, right? We just got back from the gym and I am sweating, but I couldn't wait to get this blog out of me! Now, it's shower time... I certainly earned it today! Thanks for reading!

    Congrats and picking up after from setbacks and going again! I'm sorry you and your husband have had to face joblessness early in your marriage - but hope that the lessons you learn working out together will lead to not just prosperity in the future - but the priceless kind of prosperity too - a solid relationship built on helping each other through hard seasons

hang in there!
