Life Craziness but still on track
Tuesday, January 19, 2016
gone for over a year....again. But I haven't given up or anything, life just gets hectic and sometimes you don't have time to keep up with this stuff. So much has changed in the last year. Some good, some bad. It has definitely been a time...
I decided to sign up for three separate races this year and make that my personal goal for the year. I am signed up for race #1 and will do a 5k in March for my birthday. I have a group of great ladies doing it with me and I am really excited to get back into it. I will be doing a 10k at some point this summer and then myself and my mother have decided to do a half marathon in November for her birthday. Just the thought of that terrifies me, but I just decided that if it kills me, I will become a runner this year. I have tried so many times, only to give up a few months in and I don't want to do that this time. So there are the goals for this year.
In other news, I had a bit of news dealt out to me back in November about my significant other that put us in a bit of a whirlwind. He was diagnosed with cancer and so we have spent the last 3 months trying to learn everything that we possibly can about treating this as naturally and holistically as possible as he is really not wanting to take the chemotherapy route. I will be honest, I was really worried about approaching it this way in the beginning, but I have come around. number one, it is his decision and I was determined to support whatever he chose to do. Number two, I have watched many family members go through those treatments for it to not work in the end and it just seemed to make their quality of life worse while going through them. And third, since he started he has had so much energy and looks so good that I have to acknowledge that it is definitely doing something for him, if only helping him to FEEL good. He will get new scans soon and then we will have a better idea of where things stand.
So...yeah. It's been interesting in this neck of the woods and there have been some rough patches and moments, but since starting Sparkpeople way back when, I can say that my weight is the lowest it has ever been while on here and even my pant size is the lowest it has been since my son was born (he will be 11 in August so I count that as a HUGE accomplishment). So despite the lack of being good about getting on here and tracking everything, I have made steps to continue to pursue my goal weight and to be the healthiest version of me that I can be. I am glad to be back though and hope to see updates from all my SP friends!
