Very Proud of Myself.

Wednesday, May 21, 2014

I've been getting up at 0430 every morning lately in order to do homework and exercise. Yesterday, I was supposed to start C25K (again...) and it's been over a month since I've even done W1D1. I did not get to run in the morning and I played that whole "everything-is-working-against
rever!" thing. Then I just decided, somehow, some way I was going to get to the track or the gym to do this damn thing! And I did. At 3:20 I was able to sneak out of work and get to the gym. Then, to my surprise, I didn't even need to start on W1D1, I was more like W5D1, meaning I don't have to start completely over! Which is a relief! I am going to do a Sparkpeople virtual 5k on June 30th! Woohoo!

So for purposes of this blog, long story short, my dad was not in my life, he remarried and had 3 children. They live in Arkansas, they are 17, 15, and 6. I want to meet them and am planning to in October. So right now, I am all geared up for total healthy eating, exercising, losing weight mode. Mostly because I don't want to be self-conscious AND because I want to be a role model to these kiddos. I am processing a lot in regards to this and journaling to death.

Love you beautiful Sparkfriends! emoticon

    Girl, I am SO proud of you! It sounds like you are on track and nothing is going to stop you!

    And I know how big this meeting with your unknown siblings is to you. I am so happy that you will get to meet them, but I also know what a huge step that is. My mom's dad did the same exact thing and I know that she still regrets to this day that she never knew him or his second family. I found his kids on Facebook after he passed away and it was such a weird feeling...knowing that they are related to me, but also knowing that they have no idea that any of us exist. emoticon

    I went to meet my dad and his three kids about 8 years ago, when I found my half-sisters on MySpace. He was sick and we knew there wasn't much time left.
    It was a really wonderful, healing experience. I had a lot of resentment for him abandoning us and taking up with a new family and seeming to just forget about us... but he never did. He showed us all of the photos he had saved, every letter and card we'd ever sent... it really meant a lot to both my brother and me. I am so glad I went. He did die a year later and we were able to visit while he was on his deathbed, as well. We came and held vigil as long as we could but after a few days had to go back to our home states... he died the next day. I think he was waiting for us to come back before he could let go.
