Claiming my seat today, after my absence.

Saturday, February 22, 2014

Over the last month I have not been on SP and I have not tracked food. I have been overwhelmed, frankly. And eating too much. And....well, I'll get on the scale tomorrow and update my weight.

Starting today, I intend to change this. So, I'm tracking. And I'm going to try to blog every day.

I am really at the basics:
I've got a cold and am staying in today, trying to get over it.
All the tasks I've had to accomplish in February have/are coming together. I have behaved well in preparing for this divorce --------------which is Monday.
I'm finding I need a good deal of time alone - and that's alright.
I've made plans to go to Chicago for 4 days starting March 3. A conference and some space for me.
I need to drink alot more water than I am. Self- care, in fact, all the way around.

Thank you to everyone -- for being here and for your sparkmails, goodies, and notes. I was touched deeply.

    Caring for yourself is SO important. How easy it is for us to forget!

    You are putting all your energies where they are needed MOST:

"I have behaved well in preparing for this divorce"

All of our steps, forward, backward, zigs and zags...ALL of them have valuable information which can be transformed into knowledge and growth.

We're with you during every one of those steps!

    I have a cold too and am tolerating it fairly well for me.

When I look back on my divorce I now think of it as the start of the good part of my life. I am praying that the same thing happens for you.

  You need to drink more water when you are sick. I didn't last year and ended up severly dehydrated. Not a lot of fun and hated having to go to the hospital every other day for iron and hydration fusions. Have been sick now for what seems like forever but is actually only day 11 and you betcha I'm drinking water lol.

    during a change at this level requires survival skills not concerning yourself on anything other than that.
