Today is day 364- tomorrow will be one full year on SparkPeople...my anniversary, so to speak!
It's been a wonderful journey - the support has been great, the challenges fun, the sparkpages inspiring, the friends I have made are considered "keepers" in my book, and a select few have emerged into "buds" that I think I would sorely miss if I were ever to not Spark again.
On a serious note: This week has been a very stressful week, and I still emotionally eat on occasion. It's a full blown out PMS week, most likely a full moon too (you know how I love those), work is painfully slow, and the winter blues have hit me hard. You see, I've received a few bits of new this week that worry me a bit. The news doesn't directly affect me at all, in fact, but I care for these people, even though I have never seen them before, or in one case, have not seen them in 20 years. It's in my nature to care (worry) and "pray it out" in that way, and hopefully my vibes sent into the universe will ease their stressful times. To some this might not make any sense at all - "why are you like that?" I have no idea, it's just how I am. I take things and people and their feelings to heart - literally...and to not be able to fix the problem or help them, stresses me out. Maybe writing this will balance something else out there. Maybe it's the economy stressing me out to...Who the hells knows.
On the flip side!!!!!! Because, for goodness sake, there is a point somewhere in my brain....I have been thinking of all the great things that have happened since Feb 7th last year...and here's a little list for you!
1 - I can run for 5 minutes now! for me, that is HUGE
2 - I have more energy and (usually) have steady moods
3 - my skin looks better on my face (on my stomach...not so much...can we say pizza dough? Goshdarn stretch marks & loose skin)
4 - my psoriasis on my knees and elbows (pretty bad) is almost completely gone!!! YAY!
5 - I really know my body now and how it react to certain foods
6 -I haven't had a bile duct attack all this time - another YAY!
7 - I'm actually looking forward to buying a bathing suit this year...I know, what the hell?!?!
8 - Part deux starts tomorrow...new year, new goals, new challenges...but those are for tomorrow...
So that's all I can think of right now...my kids are on my very very last nerve and are determined to drive me insane as I write this. Heck, that's the least of my worries, I'm going to shut my big mouth now. Counting my blessing for the billionth time....again.
