Hello everyone,

I feel like I have dug myself out of the avalanche of life events and can now get back to concentrating on *me*!

Starting today it's just normal busy and not over-the-top busy. I know I've gained back some weight but I haven't been on the scale and I just didn't stress over it. I've made some good choices and some bad choices.

The weekend with my friend and her husband went well. She's a big drinker, but considering she has terminal cancer with no more hope of treatment I can't say I'd be any different. We all sort of joined in with her. But she's generally an upbeat person and we, amazingingly, got along like we were back in high school!

Even though TC and I have not walked in 3 weeks, we are going ahead with our plans to walk as much of the half marathon as we can on Saturday. We'll be leaving tomorrow after school and won't get back until Sunday. I'll let you know how it goes!!

Vandal, I'm going to dust off the Beck's book and start from the beginning as well. If nothing else, it keeps all those good principles in the forefront of one's consciousness. I've had a very UNCONSCIOUS few weeks and I'm ready to take charge again!

    You are a brave woman TG! You are right on to walk the 1/2 marathon anyway. Just do it because that was your goal. We can't always keep up with our plans but we don't have to give up on the prize. I hope the weather is beautiful and you and hubby just enjoy the day, the event and being in good company.

    Maybe I'll have to think about trying to follow in your footsteps. I've never done a 1/2 marathon before. Hmmm, I think I might be inspired.

    TG, good to see you're back. I've ordered the Beck book and should receive it tomorrow... I'll be counting on you and Vandal to give me advice on how to implement Beck's teachings!! So you better be there...! I am on a really good streak right now. I hope you find your way back on that wonderful path... and I'm there to help! You were there when I went through my terrible weeks and I cannot thank you enough for that. Have a good marathon and make sure you come back to us! À bientôt! emoticon

    Welcome back!! We (well me at least) certainly missed you and your comments and support.

    Glad you didn't stress over the week-end. What your friend and you are going through is tough and right now I would say what you're doing is just fine. We'll help you get back all the way.

    Good luck on the marathon and I hope you're able to at least get some walking in prior to the Saturday event.

    Anyway just know that I'm thrilled that you are BACK!

    More later.
