Lots of changes taking place.....

Monday, February 18, 2013

This was to be the best month of goals reached, but that wasn't the case.


Today I exercised for the first time since February 5th with a dvd workout. My husband made a choice to abuse me and almost took my life. He is now sitting in jail with 2 felonies. The reason I haven't been able to workout is because I needed to heal from multiple punches to the head, and soft neck tissue damage. Yes I had swelling all over from neck to chest to upper back and under upper arms. It was one of the most painful things I have ever had to go through.

So the past 2 weeks I have been filling out tons of paperwork and going to many appointments. I went from being a married woman to a separated married woman. I filed a restraining order, amongst other things. Before all of this I was a stay-at-home-mom... Now that has been changed... I am currently looking for a new place to live so that we can be safe. I don't know how to drive, nor do I even have a vehicle. That is another thing that will need to change. I haven't worked in 10 years, so I will need to get some experience so I can work. Not to mention I am now the provider for my son and I have no money... The rent is paid for this month, so that's a plus! As far as bills only God can help me!

I do have a very supportive church who are helping out any way they can. I have my mom and family as well. I know God is in this and that He has a plan... I just don't know what that plan entails... As far as my eating, I have probably ate too much and haven't really watched my portion sizes... Exercise wise I have been walking alot since last Friday, cleaning, and taking care of a 4 year old energetic lil boy.

This week I plan on getting back on track! If you could keep me in your thoughts and prayers, I would appreciate it, thanks!

    Aw dear, I'm so sorry I know what that's like it's horrible it's never supposed to happen and it probably happened when you least expected it. But at least he is in jail paying for it. When you move to new location change your name if you can and put triple locks on doors and make sure there are gates on the window please, am praying for your financial and emotional well being. U r a child of god don't forget that. emoticon

    I am definitely praying for you. You are strong and you CAN do this! I know I don't live close to you but I am here for you emotionally. Is there anything I can do for you?

    Remember - even when you go back to work - SAHM's is still here for you.

    Big Hugs your way!
