It's been a long time
Friday, October 19, 2012
I've not been on Sparkpeople since early May. It's been a really rough summer and now Fall is in the air and I've got to get back to trying to take care of myself. A lot happened to me this year and I've not wanted to dwell. But maybe it's time.
First my daughter graduated from high school while also obtaining her associate's degree. Way to go girl!!! So pround of you.
Second my husband and I celebrated our 25th wedding anniversary with a few days in beautiful New Orleans, where we had spent our honeymoon. Love you honey!
Third my only brother was killed by a drunk 17 year old driver and his wife seriously injured on their way to a two week vacation. This was the blow that has spinned my life out of control while trying to stay in control. Is it even possible???
Fourth my daughter left for college--at least she's just a 2 hourdrive away and my son, a US Marine, is stationed in Hawaii.
Now it's just my honey and I at home but that was something we were looking forward to.
Now also it's time to get out of the fog from the happenings of this summer and move on.
Now it's time to fit into clothes I'm growing out of. My thoughts have been, why? Life can be taken from you in a flash and all the worries about calories, fitness minutes, etc.. are for not... Is it really important?
Everyone acts like it is, but really is it? I'm going to try. I don't want or have the funds to buy bigger clothes. I have to feel comfortable again. I want to feel good again. So a dropping of a few pounds can't hurt, right?
