So, I just did the math and it's been a full 6 weeks since I last checked in with this blog. Worse, it's been 6 weeks since I have worked out, checked my weight, ensured I drank enough water...the list goes on, but you get the point. On the one hand, I'm ashamed of that. I really do value being fit and healthy and want to get myself in good shape. However, these last six weeks, aside from being filled with holidays, travel, and family, have been almost entirely focused on the health and well-being of my children. That included two 700-mile trips for my son, and that was extremely stressful.
The stress isn't over yet, but I'm feeling the weight of guilt as well as the weight of the holiday feasts bogging me down. I want to lighten myself in 2014, physically, mentally, spiritually, and emotionally. The new year is only three days away, so I'm re-starting now.
One positive I have right now is that in six weeks of not working out, not watching what I eat, and generally wallowing in unhealthy-ness, I only gained one pound. That's an absolute blessing, really. It would hurt to take myself backwards before I start on this health journey again.
