    We always have another 'chance to try'. Really, it's just about continuing to move forward.
    When Mom died, I was worried that the grieving process was going to interfere with my fitness motivation. I was very aware that it could, and I knew that lesser things than THAT type of situation has caused me to stop in the past. So what could I do differently? I certainly didn't want to FAIL again.
    I asked myself, where do I want to be on the OTHER side of this life challenge...you know, once this crisis passes. Do I want to feel like I let myself go and have to start AGAIN? Or do I want to keep moving FORWARD while in the MIDDLE of the life challenge?

    I knew the better answer was 'move forward'.
    and I KNEW I would need support.
    So I contacted a spark coach and asked them how to get through this tough time of grieving. She sent me several articles to read and they really helped me.

    Maybe you can do that, too! There's a gabillion life situations out there, surely one of our coaches has experienced something similar.

    Either way, I'm here for you, even while I myself struggle through my own challenges.

    I'm editing to add that I did NOT work so hard to push forward through Dad's death. I had a lot on my plate: planning the funeral, dealing with the house stuff, and finishing our home-school for the year so I allowed myself time off. I risked it. And I gained 15 pounds in just 3 months. So there IS a risk that goes with 'not pushing forward.' I'm still trying to lose that weight.

    Thanks for your response to my new year blog. You are right...I need someone to hold me accountable. My daughter may be a good choice for this, as she also has goals she is working towards. I will speak to her when I get home from work and see if she is up for going to the gym.
