I am doing it again

Wednesday, September 07, 2016

Today I stepped on the scale as I prepare for a new challenge and noticed that I am gaining weight again, my fat percentage is going down but my weight is up, so weird. The last few weeks have been a whirlwind, with surgeries, starting school, flipped sleep schedule and so much more. I have been so focused on my family and life that I am letting myself slip through the cracks again. My life is very challenging right now, but so is life for many, so why do I find it so hard to get healthy?

I figure this is going to be a rest of my life journey. I am nervous because in a week I find out if I have to have a surgery that will put me out of commission for about six weeks. I have no idea how I am going to accomplish this with my family and financial needs. They say the surgery will really help. The only thing I can think of right now is to go back to basics, take it one day at a time.

Today I will track my food and water, walk 3 miles and try to stay as positive as humanly possible.


On a happy note, B started Kindergarten yesterday and it was a big success. She was so excited but when the bus pulled up and mommy was not going she was scared. She got on like the brave girl I know she is and ended up having a fantastic day. My health may not be very successful right now, but I do feel life my family is moving in a great direction. Here are some happy pics from the big day.

    I can really relate to your blog post. I also have a big and busy family that keeps me on the go all of the time. I feel good about my family life but very disappointed in the way that I have neglected my health. I am looking forward to the challenge to---time to get on track and stay on track! I am glad to have you on my team. I hope that all goes well with the surgery (if that is the decision as to the way forward).
