I realized I have not blogged in a long time. This month has been crazy busy. I feel like I'm just running from one thing to another and then I got sick so that sucked and meant some weight gain for me. So I've been getting diligent about taking my reflux medicine because I don't want to be eating all the time and also needed to get my water drinking going on again. Well, that is starting up again! Woohoo! I've missed you.

My shoulder is like 90% recovered. The specialist told me it will take another year to heal fully so I need to be careful and not over exert myself. With that in mind, I'm going to continue to do some of my healing exercises periodically to make sure that my recovery stays on pace.

Yesterday I splurged on a pair of roller skates so I can go roller skating with my daughter. Caley was so happy and the Aspire teachers were cheering me on. It was nice to get all that support and to practice roller skating again. Found out my friend is throwing a skating party for her daughter and Caley and I are invited so I will be getting my skating on then!

This month has been a lot of reflection for me and how I don't want to be this heavy anymore, but to get to where I want to go, it will take serious work. It will take serious changes and I'm really taking a look at what I'm doing and why I'm doing it, but while I contemplate, I can't forget my victories:
1. I'm starting to make sure I get enough sleep most nights of the week.
2. I'm exercising on a regular basis and I'm back at the gym.
3. I started drinking water again. Good ol' H2O. That was huge for me to get my tummy issues under control so I could start doing that again.

So what is next for me? Well, I want to start meeting my goal of getting 25 SparkPoints and spinning the bonus wheel. I need to be more active on this site. It will be necessary if I want to see how I'm doing on my water goal and to get me geared up to meet my other goals. I can do this. I have what's in me to do this. I just need to want it and realize I'm not giving up anything. I'm learning how to live a life that will serve me better in reaching all my goals and dreams. I don't want type 2 diabetes if I can help it and I still have time, but I got to get serious. I got to take this seriously.

    I always admired people who could roller skate really well like that. I never was a super great skater, but I loved skating when I was younger and would like to get back into it again. Fun way to get some exercise in!

    I wish I could go roller skating with you! Although...its been years since I've been on skates, so I'd probably fall down a lot, lol. (But when I was young, I wanted to join the roller derby when I grew up!)
