Welcome back to taking care of YOU finally! Those life events sure can mess us up!~ I am glad you finally have tome to take care of you. all we can do is move forward and forget about the yesterdays- no ned kicking ourself over something we cna not control. Now that you have made this gift to yourself-- stick with it! I know I am a big yo yoer but I am trying a lot harder now as I am not getting any younger! I was almost out of the 400's in February then I blew it-- but I can not keep kicking myself over it-- all it does is derail me even more! We can do it-- I have faith in you!
One bite, one day, one pound at a time. Remember you are worth the effort!
After a super crazy 5 months, I'm slowly getting back into a workout routine and healthy eating.
Ever since father's day, it's been one thing after another. My mother in law died suddenly (expected, but sudden none the less.)
Then hubby had a serious health scare (on top of his disability-it really complicated things there for a while.) The good thing? It was treatable. Bad thing? I ended up caring for him 24/7 for about a week . He had inflamed nerve endings (not fun and very painful!)
Then just as I started to recover from that my mom had 2 strokes back to back and her blood sugar shot up to over 500 and it took 3 days for the hospital to get it back down to the 150's. Just as soon as I got her set up in an assisted living facility with 24/7 on call nurses and a home health care aide,
I slipped at the park playing with our dog and severely twisted ankle. I was on bed rest for it for almost 2 weeks.
And now I'm here back to being able to do "normal" things trying to get back into a normal routine of sorts. I miss going to the gym, I miss thinking my dog is laughing at me when I pop in Zumba on my wii. I know this sounds weird by I've actually come to miss Myra (or whatever her name is) that is the fitness coach on my fitness coach.
I keep reminding my self why I'm doing this and how much energy I had and how my back hurt less. I lost 15 pounds before all this happened, and I've gained back 12.
So here I am again, starting from square one it seems likes.
Anyone know how to pour white out on everything between last June and now?
