Okay first blog since 4/3/11, my friend is gone

Wednesday, April 13, 2011

Well, I am back. While it was never my intention to falter from my healthy plan, it happened. I lost a very dear friend of mine early last week and it has been a roller coaster of emotions. Ive been sad, mad, anxious and a host of other feelings, which while expected when you lose a friend, are still not things I wanted to experience.

You never think to hear the words that someone you knew, and knew well, has died. He was 38 years old, so young. It really brings home your own mortality.
So suffice it to say, I have not been on plan and have not exercised. Today I am back. Not only for myself but for my friend. He was very health concious, a vegetarian for many years and could go on urban bike rides like no ones business.

Here's to you Blake, you made such an impact in my life, may your journey to the next realm be as fun filled as your journey here was.

    I'm sorry for your loss of a friend and hope that you have good memories of the 2 of you doing a lot of things you did when he was here. It's very touching when anyone has a good friend like that. If I can do anything for you, come on over to my team and we can give you support, a shoulder to lean or cry and listen to what you may have to say. Take care, keep happy thoughts of him in your mind or heart. HE would of done the same if it were you. I will have you in my thoughts and prayers for you and his family. Always, ERNA

    My heart hurts for you!!! I lost my dear friend and roommate of 5 years when we were only 30 years old!! It has been 12 years, and I still think of him almost every day! A year to the day after he passed away, my husband and I found out we were pregnant with our first child. I feel like he is somehow a part of my son now!

    Glad to hear you are back! I re-started on Monday! I'll check in with you tomorrow to see how you are doing!!
