It's been awhile....

Hi My Friends!
I think of you often, I truly do.

I log on and read as much as I can of your trials and tribulations, sending words or healing thoughts to each of you.

I think I have been lost in a miasma of who knows what.
At times I feel like I am spiralling out of control mentally as there are so many things going on.
Where to start...hmm...

At the start of the new year (maybe even slightly before) I started slipping physically too. It didn't seem to matter what I did, my scale would inch up and my clothes felt tighter.
I know it was mostly mental...meaning I was slipping into the doldrums.

When you live with someone who is in CONSTANT pain and you always have to keep a smile on your face (when sometimes all you want to do is scream) it eventually takes a toll.
I could feel those cement blocks pulling me down into the depths of despair.

Now I have fought off those thoughts before and once I gave myself a good mental B'slap, I pulled up my big girl panties and cut those suckers off.

I am at my lowest weight now and am exercising every day.
In 40 days I lost 17 lbs and over 10".
My mindset is better able to handle all that is going on in my life and I feel prepared.

I started running again.
Not well, but running.
I did my first of the season outdoor 5K yesterday, dragging my puppy along with me.
That was a sight to see! LOL!

I am cycling and lifting weights.
I feel stronger every day.
Definitely happier every day.

My DH had surgery a week ago to try to rectify the pain he is in. It will be awhile before we know if it was a success or not.
Praying that it is.

Our son comes home from University today for the summer. I can't wait for that!
It will be nice to have him back again, although I know it will be an adjustment on all our parts.

I will try to blog more as I go along.
I know you will be seeing more of me but 'less' of me in the future.
I am in control and losing.

Love and hugs my friends!

    Girl, you look so good... Glad you got back on track, can't say the same, have been tied up with this sprained(For 3 weeks) and then casted as a broken ankle.

    I can't wait to get out and walk, well, just to be able to walk upstairs at this time would be great.

    Hope the surgery was able to make an improvement for you dh, I'm sure you will be so happy to have your son home for the summer.
    Take care. Continued success on your healthy journey.

    emoticon It sounds as though you are handling "Life's Curveballs" fairly well. I firmly believe that Exercise/Activity helps with handling "Life" much more than most people believe.
    emoticon Keep Moving and Lifting!! Praying that your DH's Surgery was successful and that you both have a Fabulous Time with your Son!!
