I know some of you guys have been worried about me; I've gotten periodic messages, comments, and SparkGoodies from many of you. Thank you for that; it means more than you know!
As some of you already know, November is a REALLY tough time for me. I am generally working constantly on my job for NaNoWriMo, which takes up obscene amounts of time.
This year, while I've done better, I'm still disappointed by how much my lifestyle has crashed and burned. I'd gone so long maintaining, without losing or gaining, that I was proud of that. November though, saw me eating out almost constantly, making poor choices, and abandoning any pretense of exercise.
So I'm back on the wagon, now. I'm here on SP, and I'll be slowly getting back into the swing of things.
One of the other big challenges has of course, been my husband. It's been a rocky road; right now, I feel like he's on the road to recovery. He was gone from our home for about a month. He's been kicked out of two programs, one before he could even start because of a failed drug test.
The last month or two, though? He's had an attitude change. Nearly losing everything has awakened a desire to get better. He still has a long way to go, and may need to be in long term recovery for at least 6 months, but he's been working with a sponsor, attending regular AA meetings, and has been coming to some tough conclusions about his recovery and what he has to do.
I'm proud of him.
So right now, I'm focusing on me, getting my health back on track, and stopping these poor habits before they get the best of me. I've worked too hard to lose what I've done now.
First step: using that stupid gym membership I've been paying for. ;)
