What a difference a year can make! Last year at this time I was doing things right. I was feeling good and putting myself first( most days).
This past August my 6yr old son had bladder surgery that had some healing complications at the start. A hospital stay that was expected to be about 7 days ended up to be 16 days. I had all the tools to know how to keep myself in good health, however my anxiety went through the roof and all things known went out the door. The bad habits came flooding back! My sons healing took another 90 days at home. We were now dealing with his anxiety about how his body was going to work. None of which I had even thought about or was prepared for before the surgery.
Fast forward to today.... From August to December I have put on 20lbs of the 30 I had dropped. The positive, I did not put it all back on!! My son is back to his spunky, loving, kind little self and our new normal is working out wonderfully!!! He is healthy and life is good!!! I am now able to put myself first (most days) again!! I am back at the gym and I am back to finding better options to eat. I am still struggling with the sugar tooth, and taking steps to get that under control once again.
I guess I wrote all that as a way to say that yep
We all have life happen, good and not so good. Know that when the calm comes again to pull ourselves up and get started again. This will always be a journey for me, and one that I will STRIVE FOR PROGRESS NOT PERFECTION!!
