Catchin' up!

Sunday, May 19, 2013

Just looked up today and saw I was remiss! I haven’t blogged since May 3rd and that’s too long! I have excuses, of course. I was sick. I got “down” and didn’t want to show that negativity on Spark. I had an arm/shoulder issue that had to settle down – so my exercise has had to made to go s-l-o-w-l-y (that’s a bummer!). And when I had finally made up my mind to write, there was the “power outage” from the fire near Spark headquarters (last Thurs?), so again no blog. In the meantime, I’ve had a few “splurges” that have turned into “streaks” (of eating). Oh my, I’m such a mess right now!
I don’t think I’ve always been real here on Spark People and that makes me feel worse! I wanted to. I meant to be honest and put it all out there for Team Spark regularly (I think – no I know! That if I wrote my feelings daily, sometimes I’d be down and that would depress others or they’d think less of me)(oh brother!!). It’s just sometimes life gets in the way. I’m sure that happens with anyone/everyone who has a very busy schedule. I want my blog to be a positive, upbeat experience each and every day! Maybe that’s not realistic (hence not quite honest) and I just have to keep on keeping on. I’m working on that perfectionism thing! I’m just not perfect at it yet (lol).
Then there’s my latest excuse: my weight hasn’t moved. How can I write, how can I put thoughts out there if I have nothing (weightwise) to talk about. Never mind that I’m on track to get a new doctor and maybe have a few answers. My husband reminds me “at least you haven’t gained weight”, but that’s little consolation right now!
Then I watched a blog/video blog of MostMom1 and got, well, happy. I really believe that one cannot watch Shelli’s version of “Hey There Mister” and not just start smiling. I feel like some of the heaviness is lifting. I also LOVE Shelli’s idea of meeting Spark friends (in person) or maybe even just BE a friend to someone else here on Spark. So, thank you Shelli. Thank you Spark People. Thank you my Friends here. Hope we see more of each other blogwise. Have a good rest of your weekend! Remember "ten mucho cuidado" means "take good care" (so please do)! All the best!

    Showing who you really are helps the rest of us relate to you. No one is perfect, not in their diet and exercise and certainly not in their life. If you show the bad with the good, you might help someone else say...maybe my day isn't so bad after all. We learn from each other. That experience makes us grow. Don't deny yourself the opportunity to learn how others handle adversity. emoticon
