been awhile

Tuesday, November 05, 2013

it has been almost a year since i have been on here :(. Life and not taking the time to devote to my healthy lifestyle. In the last year i have put on about 2o lbs :(. So here is a quick run down on what has gone on and why i am back. First my mother who has Alzheimer's i had to go to court and get her declared incompetent so i can get her admitted to a nursing home. That has been done with many bumps in the road that still needs to be worked out. My husband lost his job at the beginning of the summer so had that stress on top of dealing with issue with my mom. He did get a new job. He is now doing what he went to school for so that is a big praise. Then on October 10th I came down with pneumonia i was never admitted to the hospital but I was very sick after 2 rounds of antibiotics and lots of cough medicine (which i am still on) I am finally on the road to recovery (i hope). While sick I lost 12 lbs then gained 1.5 back. I am taking this as a jump start to get back to eating healthy and when i am able to get back into working out and going to the gym. So here i am back to spark people to help hold me accountable and to keep myself motivated. i know if i check in everyday I am going to do fine. I just have to besure that i do that this time. I know i am stress eater but i am getting veggies and fruits so when i do feel the need to eat i will reach for those instead of chocolate or sweets. So here is to the new me

Also glad that you are recovering from being sick -- pneumonia is a very serious illness. You are on the right track -- keep it up! emoticon
