5% Challenge - Week 5

Saturday, August 24, 2013

This was a great week for me!!! Yes I did lose 2 lbs. which makes it great emoticon emoticon emoticon but I have started to fall back into my work routine and getting up at 5am is helping me get my exercise in, even if it is just 30 minutes.
Also I feel that I have less stress because my son, that has been struggling with his medical condition for over 2 years, is doing so much better. We dropped him off at college to begin his 2 year and he is in such a better mind frame and of course I am so proud. He is of course still on his medications and seeing his therapist once a month--but he is doing great!!I feel I can function normal and not be on egg shells waiting for his call of help in the middle of the night!!! emoticon mm emoticon emoticon I keep my fingers crossed and pray to God that he continues on this path.

So yes I am happy I lost 2 lbs. and tonight I am even have a girls movie nights with two of my friends from work. WOW!! I have not done this in years.

So I am ready for week 5 and hope I can reach my goal this time around!!!! emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

    Woohoo...congrats on the 2lbs....
you are doing better than i am this time around.....

So pleased to hear your son is doing so much better.....

I handed mine over to God at the end of June and have had a few fights with myself when I wanted to pick things back up again and had to totally lay him before God recently however I have had peace about it all and even though I have to tell myself at times that I am not going to mpoick it all back up again it has been a struggle.....
Lat week when he forgot to go to court I was quite anxious however he turned up in a space I was in...he had been arrested the day before for not turning up and had been to court nad wanted a ride home...I already had an idea he had been arrested however it is not mine to pick up any more...he has to get on with his own life....]
He is I believe older than your son however it has been a journey for me to get to where I am today and I still have the rrest of the journey to go....E.G. selling the house if the rent doesn't get paid....
