Life is... messy
Saturday, August 25, 2018
Just stopping in with a quick blog. It’s been a while since I’ve been here regularly and I think it would help me to be here more often.
Life is... messy. Complicated. Beautiful. Hard. Precious.
In the last year, my mother, my uncle, and my husband’s aunt have all died. My younger son has been diagnosed with some mild hearing loss and sensory processing challenges. My older son is a preteen and preparing for his bar mitzvah. My husband left his job to start a company. I’ve had some health issues, which thankfully so far have turned out to be nothing, but I’ve had a lot of worry in the meanwhile.
I have been struggling to exercise regularly. I’ve been toying with the idea of going off caffeine, gluten, and sugar to see if it helps reduce thyroid inflammation and fatigue.
I am proud of myself that I’ve been able to be a source of emotional support for so many family members and friends over the last year. Now I am trying to retool and find ways to work health and balance back into my life.
The weight has gone up. I am thinking how I can make changes to help it go down.
A bright spot the last week, was that I ran my first 5k of the year, and won first in my age group and second for my gender. It was a small group that raced because of muddy weather, but it was a much needed positive boost for me. Sometimes, just showing up and doing your best is enough!
Looking forward to more frequent spark time here soon.
