It is time for another blog! I used to do them a couple times a week but life has kept me busy recently. I feel like I am ending January on an upswing. I started the month/year sick and am back to normal. Yay!! My weight has been a struggled simply because I haven't had the energy to workout and my eating has not been on target. With that being said now that I am not sick I have been working hard to get my steps in daily and eating right! I have also been working on eliminating wheat and dairy from my diet. I feel better and hope to continue to make those changes.
The next two months will be hard for me emotionally. I am coming up on the one year anniversary of my dad's death in March, which also falls on my birthday. I have prayed and thought about this a lot lately and throughout most of last year. I am going to take the day off of work on my actual birthday (going to Disney) and then have a big party the following weekend. I kind of feel like I don't want to dismiss my birthday just because it is a painful day for me now. I don't think my dad would want that for me. When my husband asked me what I wanted to do I told him I wanted to go roller skating and have a party at the skating rink! Totally something fun, active, and something I can do with all of my friends and their families. It is hard thinking about last year because my husband had a party planned for me but we had to cancel it and never celebrated because we were in New York burying my dad. I don't want to focus on that this year! I know I will be thinking of my dad and will go through the normal grieving processes that come with it but no dwelling!!
I am looking forward to the next few weeks and the continuing fun of the Biggest Loser Challenge. I really love my fellow Tangerines!! You all inspire me and motivate me!!
