Life's ups and downs!

Sunday, August 22, 2010

Well, it truly has been a memorable summer...but as we grow older, we realize that memorable can mean both good and bad memories. Summer started very badly with my husband's stroke, but continued to improve as he did day by day. As you can see in the picture, he's looking well!!

The rest of the summer was filled with two trips...to China and Ireland. These events along with our scare in the beginning of the summer should show me how important it is to take good care of myself. Yet, in the middle of all of this ... what did I do? Went away from Spark and my program to increase activity and monitor my eating...and I went back to many of my bad habits.

I'm so disappointed that I did that. But I'm back and realize that if the good times are to continue, then I must stop my yo-yo approach to weight loss and realize once and for all that I must improve my eating/exercise habits. (Had thought I finally realized that when I joined Spark People, but guess I've still got some learning to do!)

Well, anyway, back to REALITY and back to SCHOOL and back to caring about how much I move and what I put into this body of mine. So, here I am, reasserting myself and continuing to pray that there are MANY MORE wonderful years to enjoy for Charlie and myself!
