You know when you have a really good excuse, you think it is a reason?

There is NO reason
to act against your better judgment
to move away from your own truths
to stop exercising (unless you are injured)
to be careless with your nutrition
Yet I used the excuse of an extremely difficult situation to do just that. Diet and exercise, who knew? Well I knew. I had successfully lost 80 pounds. I was keeping it off when I stopped doing what worked. Because chocolate cake and wine were going to make it better! Or more accurately I was going to focus on it later.
Well, welcome to my later. Later where I have left a toxic job and moved 1200 miles away. The frogger and I are now sharing a house in the Houston area with a friend, while I find new employment and she retires. Our friend is gracious and generous and has severe health problems. We are seeing if we can be a support to one another.
We've been in Texas two weeks. I now have internet access and gym access. This is my later where I admit that taking a break from health and fitness didn't make me happy and didn't take me where I want to be. This is where I am not using the excuse of "stress" (job hunting, new living situation, etc.) to stop exercising and eating healthy.
This is my record of how I lost weight and got healthy.
PS: I got out my Bisbee 1000 shirts and read the names of all my Spark Buddies which are written there. You guys are still in my heart.
