2012 - What A Year

Sunday, December 30, 2012

2012 was certainly filled with its share of ups and downs - from ups of me going back to school (and finishing & passing the certification exam) & hubby finding a good part time job, to the downs of hubby still having back pain & leg weakness and me dealing with Ray & Lu. My boys have had their amazing days at school, and their not-so-amazing days.

I realize today that I am going to be a little short of my year goal for fitness minutes. Am I sad about it? Yeah, a little. But I've spent the past 2 weeks up & down being sick so it is what it is. Will I push a little harder in 2013 to hit my goal? You better believe it!

I've missed being on here in the past few weeks. I just honestly have not had the energy to hold the laptop on my lap to type or read or anything. I've done my tweeting and facebooking via my cell phone (and I even had a few days where that was heavy because I was so tired). Will I strive to do better in 2013? Yes. I give myself the challenge of making it to each team I'm part of at least once a week.

Two of the teams I am on I am excited to finally get invovled with - The Writing Diet: Write Yourself Right-Size (by Julia Cameron) and A Course In Weight Loss (by Marianne Williamson). I plan on working through one chapter each week in both books. Yes, only one chapter each week because I want to really focus on the message and the homework for each and not just rush through either of them.

I also plan on finally finishing The Spark (yeah, I know, kinda sad that I've been here for so long and still have not finished the book) at the same time. I know that mind can truly make a huge difference on matter and I plan on using my mind to become healthy as much as using my body for eating right and exercising.

With Ray & Lu as my constant companions now, it's more important than ever for me to shed this excess weight and give my joints and whole body a break, to make it easier. My feet and hands have the worst of the RA thus far and especially for my feet losing the extra weight will help with lessening the pain I feel when I stand some days.

I know this blog isn't making a ton of sense. I'm still not feeling 100% but I wanted to get back here one more time before the end of 2012. I will be around more in 2013 again. I'll restart my log in streak and I will be active in every team at least once a week. I will be stronger for it.

Okay, my fingers are starting to hurt from the typing so it's time I say so long for now.

Brightest Blessings To You & Yours In 2013!!

In Gratitude, Love & Light,

    *hugs* You've done well hon! I know you've had alot of setbacks, but you're still here, you haven't given up, and I'm proud of you for that! It takes time to get accustomed to having chronic issues, and 2 cropping up at once HAVE to be even harder. *HUGS* Keep up all the great work and build on that!

    Feel better!

    Chrissi! You have made a helluva comeback for having both Ray and Lu with you constantly. And being sick all week, which feels like a month or so!

    I completely understand where you are coming from, and please make sure you take it easy and don't stress yourself out. I am happy you were able to share your journey through 2012 and I hope and pray you have a better year next year.

    Heck, I hope we ALL have a better 2013 than 2012!!!

    Hugs and Lots of Support,
