A December to remember

Tuesday, December 20, 2016

Hello everyone! This has been a stressful time. I ended up in the ER twice. The first time it turns out I was dehydrated and the second time, they asked me if I had a history of smoking, drinking, drug abuse, or any religious restrictions. I was getting really dizzy. They found nothing, but my thyroid level has jumped quite a bit. In other news, it has been a struggle to be in the Christmas spirit. Some days, I am happy singing Christmas songs and looking at Christmas lights. I even saw the Ho Ho parade, but ever since budget cuts, it's not much of a parade. It was still cute though. It is a few cars with decorated with lights, some inflatable Santas and people waving. It was fun going in the fancy neighborhoods and seeing their lights and yard decorations. White lights on Christmas trees are in! In my house, the tree is fiber optic, thanks allergies! It's still pretty though! Other days, I am not so much in the spirit. Show of hands yiu needs to seriously get back in healthy habits? My blood pressure is too high and to the point where I need meds. I am too young for that so I have to turn this around. It is not easy during the holidays when every person is a chocoholic! No, don't have to eat the chocolate. No going back. Only forward. Sorry if this blog doesn't flow, but I accudently stumbled on the "post a blog section" from this phone and don't know if that will happen again any time soon! Haha. If it does, I will write a bit more later. :)

    I'm so sorry to hear about the rough December.
    I hope you really enjoy the rest of the month. The holidays are not really about eating, you know? Enjoy music (&lights), family, and friends- we at Spark count, right?
    You got this. Live as healthy as you can today. I'm rooting for you!

    Chocoholic here.
    And to blog on a phone - Great!
    Sorry about the ER - hydrate and don't stress about the Christmas spirit - it's not about carols and gifts - it's a quiet light and peace in darkness. Find you joy!
