On the end of my string..
Saturday, March 14, 2009
Well, I haven't been around in quite some time. That's not to say that I've not been mindful of my eating and exercising. I just haven't had much time or energy to sit on the computer, other than at my job.
In mid-February I was constantly sick. Then, about three week ago, my grandfather fell down a flight of stairs, and landed himself in the ICU. Now, we're still unsure what's going to happen to him. He's lost his ability to move and breathe on his own.. so it's been rough.
This week, I started a new position at my current job. One that requires lots of energy, which I am excited about. But, the continuous downward spiral that's been happening continued, and I found out my parent are getting a divorce.
So, I've basically just been trying to complete my training schedule for the half-marathon, but that's even been difficult. I'm certainly not getting enough sleep, and I'm trying my best to eat. Some days all I want to do is eat.. others, I have to force myself to put food down. A lot of people think that just because I'm 24, the divorce won't hurt. That's not right. I have never been this hurt. There have been a lot of lies, and that's something that I have to deal with. On top of that, I'm a counselor, and I know what I need to do to heal, but it's so hard to do. Beyond that, both my parents are weak, and my younger brother is full of anger/sadness.. so I'm worrying about all them too.
So, as for Spark People.. I'm not sure when I'll be back on a regular schedule, but at least know that I am trying my best to stick with my plans -- drinking my water, eating healthy, and exercising regularly. It's just that when it rains, it pours.. and sometimes I need to take a break.
