Meekly Blogging

Friday, January 02, 2009

Wow, it's been awhile since I blogged, and when I did it was right after I'd completed Bootcamp and I was in the best physical shape of my life. Now? Not so much. I just updated my SparkPage and have copied and pasted here, what I posted there....

OK, so, I won't even go into all the reasons why 2008 totally sucked, but I will say that I'm stoked it's over and 2009 has begun! I will say, however, that one of the greatest highlights of my year was when June (GrumpyGrams from IL), Steph (Steph2003 from TN), and Donna (ThinMom5 from AZ), all came out to So Cal and spent a few days staying with me! Man, did we have fun, and not much of was Sparkified, lemme just say!! And, yep, that's the 4 of us in the picture having dinner at Duke's in Huntington Beach, California... Left to right is Donna, Steph, June and Me!

Overall, it's been a tough year for me, which has resulted in me putting 16.2 pounds back on this little body of mine, and my laziness has also left me very flabby and out of shape. I'm pretty unhappy about the downward spiral that I let my health take, and I'm ready to bring healthy back!!!

And, may I just say (and it's my blog, so I CAN just say), GO MIAMI DOLPHINS!! My Boys were 1-15 last year, but this year they had one of the greatest comeback years in NFL history and went 11-5...AND we are in the playoffs, Baby!!!

Miami Dolphins ~ 2008 AFC East Division Champions!!!!!! Mmm hmm.... You read that correctly....that was NO typo, thankyouverymuch!!!

    Lynn so glad you're back. I haven't been here much at all myself lately, and I'm STILL moping about not being able to make it out there with the rest of them.

    Hopefully in 2009, life can get back to normal for all of us.

    Hi Lynn~glad to see you make it through! Things got tough for me on 09/11-08~my only son that was in the Army was kia in afghanistan. My heart is broken and I know that i have to carry on~my son (PFC Michael W. Murdock) would want me to. It is so hard to get motivated; sometimes in the past few months i'd log in to see what was going on ~ checked on you as well~seen if you had been on. Exercise would probably be the best thing for me mentally (besides praying to God ALL THE TIME) i've gotten down to116 lbs since he died; but i am not healthy and it is hard to want to be right now.
    I am glad to see you back on~you are so upbeat and such a motivator and i love that about you. And i am wishing you a great 2009:-) emoticon

    First, I want to say, thank you so much for using the pic of me where I'm laughing so hard I'm crying. I kinda look like I just smoked some wacky weed...LOL We did have a fantastic time, and it was definitely a highlight of 2008. I know your year was probably the worst you've ever endured, but 2009 WILL BE BETTER. Remember we're always here for ya! emoticon

    Hey, we all have our ups and downs, so do not beat yourself up. You have been such an inspiration for me and many others, and we all know that it won't take long before those 16 pounds are gone! The end of 2008 sucked for me as well, but I vow to make 2009 a much, much better year:)
