Why is this so hard?
Sunday, September 13, 2015
For weeks now I have been trying to get back into Sparks, and it seems like I keep dragging my heels.
I can't believe i wrote my last blog 4 months and 1 day ago. I never had the intention of being absent all summer, but here I am 4 months later and desperately trying to get back on track.
After I realized that this past summer was pretty much a lost cause regarding my journey to health, I had once again high hopes for the beginning of the school year 3 weeks ago. Suffice it to say that triple digit tmperatures, a week of jury duty, and a nasty cold derailed my efforts once again. But... I refuse to give up! I have said that many, many times, and I continue to believe that one day I will reach my goal.
On a positive note, I did not gain any weight over the last several months, even though I did nothing to enhance my efforts. As a matter of fact, I actually lost 4 lbs. I realize that this is less than a drop in the bucket, but I am holding on to anything, and I mean anything that smells of success.
As I have done in the past, I will need to take one day, and one step at a time. I will focus on the things that I can do, not the ones I can't.
I have truly missed my Sparkfriends, and I knw it will take time to get reacquainted.
For now, I know I am taking a step in the right direction.
Here is to a fall filled with opportunities.
