Back on the wagon (again)
Saturday, June 04, 2016
My 48th birthday is next week-in late May I decided that it was time to start taking care of myself again. I was doing well through last November-when my husband's congenital heart condition started to worsen. After that we both engulfed in comfort foods. In February his open heart surgery was scheduled-more comfort eating. March, the surgery, a week in the hospital, then 8 weeks of recovery. During that time I took care of my husband but not myself. Now he is recovered fully and back at work-so it's time to focus on taking care of myself.
I am 2 weeks into my new routine and feeling great. Once again I wonder how I let myself slip back into bad eating and drop exercise, when I feel so much worse for living that way. Here's to a new start!
