Boy has it been a while since I've blogged. I'm so glad I have Spark Friends!! I was just reading some of their blogs and has gotten me thinking about what it is that I am here for. I started a journey last year to lose weight. I found out that I LOVE to go swimming. Last year I tallied 75 miles in the water and even swam a mile and 1/2 lake. I reviewed my weight on Jan 1st. I have to appreciate that I have lost 23 lbs, not be mad that I had lost 30 (7 lbs gain). So why am I writing this today? I have to start somewhere. Not really sure what my first step is going to be. I have been 1/2 tracking since Jan 1, but my heart has not been into this whole process lately. My last swim was before Thanksgiving. Not to make excuses, but I did have to take the month of December off. My husband had 2 complete knee replacements in December and I was his caretaker for a solid 2 weeks. That was more exhausting than my ususal 2 jobs a day. My husband is doing really well and now I need to get my butt back into the pool. It's really hard to think about that though when it's minus 19 degrees all day. I hate starting my car at lunch to go. It just growls at me. My friends on Spark have stuck with me through this whole losing touch process and they welcomed me back with open arms. As I type this, I realize, I AM READY TO DO THIS! I have a lofty goal for my 25th wedding anniversary in Sept, so I better do what I can to get to it! I don't want any regrets. Please say a little prayer to give me the strength to keep the course. Thank you Spark Friends!!
