Since 2016 to now, 2020!
Monday, September 07, 2020
Since 2016 . . . . a lot has happened in my life. In 2016 my house began to have structural problems. Walls were cracking. Holes appeared in the ground that when I filled up thinking something had dug them then the hole would reappear with the dirt and rocks just lower. I chose to sell my house because it would cost thousands to have stantions put underneath it to keep it from sinking with no assurance that it would work. We took quite a loss on it but my husband and I rented a nice house that is in a safe neighborhood. My husband’s health began to fail a few years before and continued to get worse. His body, (72) began to wear out and get continually weaker. Many tests done to find the problem but no answers until at Christmas 2018 he basically fell and died one morning at our house. Since then I have not felt much like doing anything.
2020 . . . . this year started and we have had to isolate. No more going to the senior center for exercise classes. I have gained and I just don’t feel good now. I and my doctor have decided that I need to begin moving again. I took a part time job working at a private school half days. I monitor students for a teacher who teaches a 3rd – 4th grade class with less than 15 students but in two classes because of distancing desks. I watch and answer questions for one class while she is in the joining room teaching. I like it a lot but there is still so much sitting and not much moving.
I decided to order the Body Groove and started it last night. I called my daughter this morning and we are going to do it together. We both want to keep each other accountable and also get my granddaughter involved because she is at home with virtual 9th grade and not doing much either. I checked into SP this morning and found an invite to join the fall 5% challenge. I hadn’t been involved in one in several years. I hardly have gotten on SP much at all in the last few years. Joining the challenge was just what I needed. I have checked in on some teams. Joined one or two. Dropped a few and updated my weight. I want to be more involved. I feel myself dying from not moving enough and watch way too much tv.
In the next few weeks I want to update my Sparkpage and put some new pictures up. Write a few blogs and start getting involved making friends and being more active. Being alone has left me sad and lonely and I am tired of it. Here I am. I hope to motivate myself to get up, get moving, lose weight, get consistent, get organized, and become what the Lord wants me to be. I know He doesn’t want me to be sitting around. He created me to be used for His glory.
