Getting back on track... tracking and doing! Transitions...

Tuesday, August 27, 2013

Grief is a hard road! I am doing my best to get back on track with nutrition plan, sleep, exercise, ect. Of course tracking all of it!!

Today is the first day in a month that I got up and exercised, ate - tracked it all for the day - before I did anything else - trying to pick up the pieces of dad being gone. (dad has been gone a month now - I still pick up my phone and push #3 and he is not there emoticon)
I hate transitions, but hey who likes them?

Life is always transitioning and either you deal with the transitions or you get stuck. I like to move on and go forward - never being stuck with incongruency in my life.

I love my lifestyle with my husband, we are privte people, who love our families - to a fault, who live a quiet uneventful life. Taking care of issues as they arise, working hard to pay our bills and be responsible people in our community and our family.

I am trying to get back to routine - I gained four pounds - I am not surprised! I have not been following my kidney friendly diet plan - I would skip meals (did not feel like eating), sleep has not been good (some night I wake up sobbing), and my exercise has not been consistent.

This is not what dad would want for me - I get that! I just miss him very much! I miss the 6-10 phone calls a day, I miss his voice, I miss talking about our faith and God's word, I miss his morning phone calls expressing what he needed from me for the day,ect,ect,ect. I miss him!
There is no way around that!

I am doing the hard thing! I am trying to get back on track taking care of me. School is very demanding now that I am a senior. 20 hours of work per class... I have 3 of them! Whew! I am not going to let class control MY life.. I am going to control my time and do my work one hour at a time.

God Bless you!
Thank you for your continued support and encouragement.

    I am so sorry about your Dad. Mine had to leave this earth 27 years ago and my heart still aches. But I know he is in Heaven. I am able to talk to him and his answers will come to me. I know that I eventually will be with him. I remember that he loves me and wants the best of everything for me. So I will continue to take care of myself and my family in the meantime. The numbness goes away and the good memories remain. My prayers go out to you.
