I have been MIA for about a month. Slacked off on my eating and tracking my food. I am up 10 pounds . But I have continued my exercise program through this lost period.
I realized that no one can do this for me but me. I will not fail in my quest to get healthier. So I have set up a few new goals for myself.
1. Write down what I eat RIGHT AFTER I eat it. No more trying to remember what I ate 10 hours ago then just saying forget it, can't remember.
2. Step up my exercise program. I used the dreaded elliptical machine this am @ the gym for the 1st time. I did 7 minutes and it kicked my butt!
3. I will be on SparkPeople more regularly. I find tons of motivation here from the site and from all my friends here.
4. I will be kinder & more loving to those I care about. Sometimes I feel like I am always about me.
Enough of my rambling. Time to get out there and live!

It just seems like life has been one huge struggle lately. Work has way too much stress. What used to be a pleasant place to be has turned into depressing nightmare. One of my coworkers is out ill and it may be quite awhile till she returns. That leaves the other two of us picking up the slack with very little help from our manager.
On the home front, things aren't much better. Seems like the hubby & myself are on totally different pages lately. Home doesn't feel like much of a refuge these days.
With all that's happening around me, my eating habits have taken a hit. Been craving sweets land starch like crazy. Doing as well as I can.
I have been faithful with my exercising though. It seems to be the one thing I still have control of.
Now as the weekend arrives, i am coming down with something. But as all this is happening around me, I will continue on my journey to better health one slow step at a time.
Thanks for listening. I need that right now.

I just received a call from my sis who came home from the hospital Friday night. I spoke to her that night & Saturday. Today's call was to see if I was mad at her because I hadn't been over to see her since she came home.
Let me preface this by saying I went to her home every day she was in hospital at 4:45am to give her dog medicine and again after I worked all day to feed the dog and give more medicine. Let me also say that her home is not a pleasant place to be. Think hoarders but worse in a bad way.
I feel like no matter what my hubby and I do for her it's never enough.
I love my sister but feel smothered by her. She has few friends and counts on me (us) for way too much.i feel guilty if I don't include her in most everything that we do, but I feel resentful that I have to include her in everything we do. Does that make any sense at all?
I just don't know how to deal with this situation and am at my wits end.
Thanks for listening and letting me vent.

Sister in hospital for an infection. Running back & forth between her house to take care of her dog, visiting her @ hospital, working full time and trying to manage my own home. I've been negligent in logging my food choices but have faithfully continued my exercise program. I will make more of an effort to log my food.
Usually when she gets ill and lands in the hospital, I throw all my efforts out the window & just live on fast food & no exercise. So this time is different. I am maintaining my sanity through exercise and although I have not been logging my food choices, they have been healthy choices which for me is a miracle!
Hopefully she will be released in the next few days so I can go back to focusing on me. Sounds selfish, I know, but if I don't take care of me, who will???
