A few weeks ago everything seem to be falling into place. I found a hiking group I liked, I started a clinical trial which would help me sleep and I would even get paid for it, my exercise routine was working and I had actually dropped a couple of pounds after being stalled for a while. Then, I went on a really long and strenuous hike and hurt my knee. I stayed off my knee and thought I would bounce right back. Then I got sick and missed more days of exercise. Then, to top things off, my heroin addicted brother has moved in with my mom and me, and she has gone on vacation for a month and left me to deal with him by myself. Unfortunately, I manage my stress by eating and boy, that is one thing that I do really well.
I know that I have to pull myself out of this funk because no one is going to help me do it. But there are times that I just want to give up.
So, today, I will start logging back into SparkPeople and doing my SparkPoints and logging my food. Hopefully, my knee will hold up and I can go back to the gym.
