Back on Track, Day Two

Wednesday, September 04, 2013

I haven't blogged since January! I have been busy at home since then. My dear, dear client died in January and I have needed to take time off from elder care to grieve her loss. In the mean time, my middle son's family moved from Seattle to Montana where he is able to work remotely. They lived with us for 3 months while they sold their house and bought one a mile from us. It was a good time, but a very difficult time too. Now that it is over as of last Friday, I can breathe and get my house back to where I want it. My next phase is to get ready for our youngest daughter who is driving her two tots from VA to MT in October for two months while her husband is away on work. She's pregnant with their third child. I am praying that it will be a safe and uneventful trip! Did I mention that she's bringing her golden retriever too? (I ADORE that dog!)

I still don't know if I will return to work. We now have two sons with their 2 kids each living in the same city with us. What a joy that is!

This blog is too long already, I will have to save the story of my weight loss journey for another time. So thankful to be active on spark people, not just going thru the motions!
Ready for day two of working my food plan! Have a wonderful day! emoticon

    Life does take over, doesn't it. You are sounding so positive, and with your lovely family close by you will have lots to do. So good to have you on the team.

    This is NOT a long blog. Good one though. Glad your kids are returning to MT. Seems like it's in our blood. You've certainly had your hands full and with another new grandchild on the way you will have enough work to do!!

I'm glad you're "back" and have found your way to the 12 Weeks team. I decided to think of the walking and tracking as "my job" for now. It's enough and time to take care of yourself. I have been having food cravings the last few days. I try to just leave the house and go for a walk but last night came home and ate anyway. I tracked it all...and felt better about being honest than I did about feeling bad for caving to the craving. It could have been worse but I cleaned out all the cupboards and hiding spots so there was really nothing to cheat with. I told myself if I would walk back to the Holiday I could have the butterfinger that I wanted. Didn't want it that bad because it wasn't worth a 3 mile walk!! Small victories and baby steps!

I had been wondering how things were going for you.

Have a good day!
