Wow! A month surely does go fast. I had decided to take some time away for some mental health relaxation. I knew the Holidays were going to be rough and there was no way for me to juggle everything. I know my physical health shouldn't take a back seat but for that moment I had to work on my mental state. I had to get through the first set of Major Holidays that my family spent together, tonight being the last and hardest one. It's been a hard road to healing and I know it will never truly go away but I can learn to live with it rather than let it consume me.

I want to start off the new year with turning my focus back on my physical health once more. I will have to start out slow but I know I can get back on track. I got a new phone recently and I already have all of my stuff set back up on it so I can access my tracker on the go. I want to make 2014 my year. All the ups and downs I want to own! I want to come out on top no matter how long it takes.

My first step is to start going back down to the gym. The second step is to cut out pop and sugary drinks again. Thirdly, I need to start eating three square meals again, along with the healthy snacks. Fourth, I need to maintain my motivation this time and not lose faith in myself.

I know my grandpa wouldn't want me to sit around and sulk, he would want me to move on and do great things. I know he's with me every step of the way and I'm going to make him proud.

    I am so sorry to hear about the loss of your grandfather. I missed that news. My prayers go out to you for strength and peace. This is a difficult time for you especially with the holidays to get through. You are wise to take a step back and make time to begin healing.
Just remember that this is a journey that you take one step at a time. Do it for you and for the memory of your grandpa. emoticon
