Inching my Way Forward

Thursday, April 18, 2013

I will be honest and say my health has really taken a backseat lately. It's painful to admit, but I think I basically gave up. At least for a while. I'm not interested in making excuses, just stating a fact.

For a while, I was "fine" with not trying any more.

Anyway, it's only been a few days, but basically what I've been doing so far is just trying to eat more vegetables and cut down on the junk food.

For some reason, I don't feel like writing very much right now.

I think part of is that I started this blog and then got interrupted like three different times and lost my train of thought.

I think another part of it is I have been doing a TON of writing lately. I have three people in my life who are in need of emotional support right now, and for the most part, we've been communicating via writing.

One is my brother, who is in jail. His only forms of communication are either calling or writing and it is too expensive to call. Secondly, a friend of mine is grieving over the death of her father. We also talk on the phone, but we often e-mail and message each other on Facebook, too. Finally, I have another friend who is going through a very painful break-up. Again, it seems we mainly communicate by messaging through Facebook. Couple all this with the fact I do quite a bit of writing for my job, and boy, I think I'm just a little burned out on writing! At least for tonight...

Anyway, just wanted to pop in and give a little status report. I hope you-all are doing well. I will not have much time to be on Sparkpeople for the next few days, but I will definitely be peeking in on people's blogs and everything to get updates. Take care, all!

    So good to see you back, Kim. I knew you would be and I have been keeping my eye out.

    Life happens, priorities can change, but glad you are sticking to making a healthier life for you.

    I have gotten so caught up in helping others, too. We are good people with big hearts, but being older than you are, I can say from experience, that taking care of us is so very important.
    One, we need to be there for them, two, WE DESERVE TO PUT OURSELVES 1ST! It took me a long time to figure this one out and yes, I am a there for them still, but I am taking care of myself now.

    I have been eating LOTS of fruit and veggies the past two weeks and I have lost 2 inches off of my waist! That is a non scale victory that makes me very happy. Have more energy, too.
    You are on the right track and after a week, you will be seeing a difference, too. emoticon

    You have so much to deal with, but you are strong. Take care my friend.
