Well, 2014 is now completely over - we are almost 10 hours into 2015. I slept a little late after going to bed at my regular time - staying up until midnight is SO overrated! I got up and made myself a nice low-carb breakfast, drank my first 2 waters of the day (16 of 64 oz down!). After my mom got up, I made her breakfast and then drank 2 cups of coffee (16 + 20 = 36 - 28 oz to go!). Then I got dressed and went to the track at a local park and walked 2 miles in 38 minutes. My personal goal for 2015 is to walk every single day. I started walking in mid August after being diagnosed with diabetes (Type 2). I missed a few days of walking since I started and I plan to beat that this year. I can do this. And it will be a happy 2015. I refuse to let ANYTHING change that. I have my faith. I have my daughter, and my granddaughter cheering me on. I have a wonderful job that I love. Even with diabetes, I have my health. I lost 46 lbs in 2014 (since that August thing). I have 27 lbs to go until my weight is under 200 - and I will reach my goal of being under 200. Then I will set a new goal. I think my next goal will be to make it down to 150 lbs.
It's hard to be believe that I have now been divorced for well over a year. August was not only the month I was diagnosed, it was the month of hitting 1 year since the divorce was finalized. I saw my ex-husband in November while in Florida on a mini vaca with our grown daughter (Andi) and our granddaughter (Victoria). He appeared clean and sober. I divorced him after he threatened to kill me while high on crack cocaine. This was after a failed drug rehab stint that he requested. However, he only stayed in for 14 days. And was smoking crack again in less than a week. I know crack is one of the most addictive drugs, so I don't know if he is really clean or not. But I can only pray for him. I can't "fix" him.
But this is my story. And I will make it good!
