Bread Crumbs

Monday, April 18, 2011

It has been a very long hard and exhausting winter in the Sierras. While I am not going to make excuses for my lack of doing anything since November I will say life has certainly gotten in the way of me living the life I want. I am happy to say since November I have gained 2 pounds and that includes Thanksgiving, Christmas, New Years and Yes Valentines Day. I changed jobs and it took me a couple months to find my way to a new workout routine with the new hours and all was looking good and then my doctor decided to let me know the pain in my back was due to arthritis and that I needed to take it easy for a few weeks (which turned into a few months) before I went back to exercising. I mean really who was he kidding, it only took a doctors notice for me to slip back into that lazy lifestyle. Then after 25 years I have FINALLY made the choice to stop smoking. This is my 3rd attempt at not only quitting this nasty habit, but it is also my 3rd attempt to get serious about my health and weight issues. I have been able to help others, listen to others offer advise and support everyone but myself. I am my worst critic and this will be an honest effort to take my own advise and not beat myself up when I falter. I want that healthy feeling back and I start today and I am thankful I left those bread crumbs along the pathway to find my way home
