So it seems that I have unSPARKED for 2 whole months. I actually unplugged from my computer for 2 whole months. I came back to a couple thousand e-mails. Yikes. Mostly subscriptions and ads. Not much important. I was suffering from information overload.

On my health front, all hell broke loose, mostly on my face. I developed the worst acne. So unsightly and terrible for self esteem. I didn't have acne when I was a teen and I was wondering what on earth was going on in my system that would create such a terrible mess on my face?! So, I stopped. I walked away. I let it all go. I really divorced myself from life in general. I immersed myself in the Legend of Zelda to the point that I developed tendonitis in my left arm. CRAZY WOMAN! With my face such a mess, I didn't want to go anywhere or see anyone or do anything. I was lucky if I made my bed and brushed my teeth. If I managed to, it was a good day!
On the positive front, during the last two months I have been enrolled in a fitness class that has been very beneficial. Every Tuesday and Thursday at 10 a.m. I head to the gym and get my butt kicked on the Isophit. It's an isometric exercise program that has built up my strength. It has been a great experience. The class will be ending soon and I will have to figure out how to proceed on my own. Not as easy as being bossed around by a trainer.

So, here I go again. I'm starting simple. If a food has one ingredient, I can eat it. I won't be reading labels for ingredients, because the foods I need to eat don't have labels on them. That should be easy enough. Just keep trying, Nancy. Never give up!

    All we can do is to keep going forward the best way we know how, sounds like you are making good choices with real food. Awesome.

    Oh my dear friend! I can only imagine what this has been like for you (I'm certain I would hide, too). Good for you for doing the best you could, and doing what felt like self-care. Sometimes we need to just hide and lick our wounds. I'm very impressed that you did the exercise class feeling as you did. Way to go!

    I like your new plan, and if anyone is going to succeed at this it will be you!

    Don't forget that you're not alone... we're all still here standing with you!
