Where did I go?

Anyone who knows me, knows I hate to blog but something tells me it's time to try it again. I have had a very hard year. In January my husband told me he couldn't pay the bills like he had been and needed me to help him. Just so we are clear on this. Up until that moment we had lived financially separate from each other. We split the bills and if we had anything left over from our paychecks we didn't need to ask each other what to do with it. We spent it the way we wanted. Worked until over the past few years we both have been in and out of work due to economic reasons. There wasn't usually "extra" money and the credit card debt grew out of control. I was spending a monthly fee on a boot camp gym for women and decided I was worth the money but when my husband came to me for help that was the first to be cut. We have since cut all unnecessary expenses but seem to get further and further in debt. Since I am an emotional eater guess what I did? I stuffed my self with cheap, unhealthy food every time I felt stressed. This summer I gained 10 pounds. Who gains weight in the summer?!! Apparently me. I loved my gym, loved working out but let all this stress cheat me out of a healthy life.
Now I have looked back at where I have been I am ready to look forward to where I belong. I can only take it one day at a time but that is ok. I sure hope that my future blogs will talk all about the many successes I am having and less pity talk.
