I'm just going to be honest: sometimes, despite my good intentions, life just snowballs on me and I get exhausted just trying to keep up. So if/when I disappear, it's generally because I fell out and blew my streak, then procrastinated about signing in again. Part of me whispers, "I'm a failure." Another part of me yells at that first part, "For crying out loud, I am 62 years old, trying to take care of a husband, a house, a rather large yard, and a 17 month old toddler! Gimme a break!" So, I lost my balance and fell off the beam. Took me a minute to get back up. It'll be all right. I didn't go on any crazy binges. Trust me, I may not have logged anything, but a huge part of not signing in involved extra exercise: mowing grass, weed whacking, chasing the baby down as he grabs something and runs, etc. Some days, I fall asleep on the sofa. My husband simply covers me wih a blanket, instead of waking me to go to bed. To all my team buddies who worry about me, I'm sorry if I let you down. I'll try again.
