Oh the shame...

I made my last post with all the intentions in the world of getting back to my best self.... and I didn't get it done.
There are a bucketload of reasons for this... some excuses, some just the way that life can really dole out what seems like more than your fair share. While I LOVE that I was really able to motivate people, it makes it that much harder that I've slid backwards. Quite a bit backwards... I didn't do it for myself.
So.. a friend challenged me to an 8 week contest as her partner. I don't want to let her down, she's amazing. This weekend I'm putting all the pieces in place to set myself up for success and away we go. The weigh in was this morning and tomorrow is the first day of points accumulation.
There are a number of lessons in this, but really, the one that I need to keep at the forefront is support. You guys were ALL here for me and I didn't let you know that I needed you. This friend popped through at the moment when I was ready for her and since she's catholic, she, of course, thinks God sent her to me. I figure it makes her feel better and it doesn't hurt me, so I will grin and just love her faith. I hope that I am as much of a gift to her in the upcoming 2 months as she was to me on Tuesday when I got her message.
Moving forward things will continue to be rough. Family illness and heartache will still be there, and I will still be me... wanting to eat it all to survive.
Maybe this old dog can learn new tricks....
