I am Back... again

Wednesday, February 14, 2018

Life gets crazy busy sometimes. These past couple of years a lot has happened in my life.

- I graduated from college - oldest in my class and top of my class.
- My father, then age 96, moved into a nursing home.
- A year and a bit later, he passed away.
- We adopted a third furchild - Stan Lee - another young Westie.
- My husband and I celebrated our 25th wedding anniversary.
- We are renovating the home we shared with my father. By moving into the basement apartment we can rent 3 bedrooms on the second floor and share the main floor for evening meals and extra common space.
- I have been sick a lot this past year. I had Sepsis last February and viruses every couple of months since then.
- I haven't lost any weight.

    You might be retaining weight from stress. Stress affects your adrenaline, hormones, and neuro system. Try meditating for at least 20 minutes a day, retrain your brain to think positively, and actively stop stressing. It's helped me. Take care.

    I feel for ya. I've been sick with a "mystery illness" for 4 years now. Doctors are stumped. My husband & I moved onto my Dad's property because he has an aortic aneurysm, faulty heart valves, and dementia.

    I figure on this healthy lifestyle journey we ALL hit bumps in the road (heck, I've wandered off the road ENTIRELY before!). The IMPORTANT thing is to pick yourself up, dust yourself off, and continue to head in the right direction. It sounds like that's EXACTLY what you're doing. Know there are lots of us right alongside you, cheering you on!
