- HEALTH TRACKER
Hello One and All,
I hope this email finds you well. As many of you know I’ve been busy dealing some “issues” with “loved ones”. Thank God yesterday “we ALL” got out final “good bill of health”, so I am refocusing my energy onto ME.
While it may seem selfish to some, I was reminded before one can help another – they need to be healthy themselves. It’s sort of like traveling in a plane with small children. One of the “directions” you are given in case of an emergency is to put the air mask on YOU first, then help those around you. The reason being, if you aren’t “strong” enough for yourself, how can you help others?!?!?
One way for me to get “healthy” is to get “back on track”. Over the Thanksgiving/Christmas/New Years Holiday I gained about 20 pounds, and I am up almost 30 from my very lowest. I’ve been trying to lose the weight, but nothing seemed to be working. Finally 3 weeks ago I said enough is enough. I have re-upped my exercise (jogging), and have cut down the portions (but believe me when I say I’ve been eating like a bird, and NO, not constantly ;D). The next step is to see the Nutritionist come Monday, and then my Doctor in 3 weeks. And of course, getting back to Support Groups, and maybe even doing a too long waited Inconvenient Get Together!!
I just want to thank those who have reached out to me over these past months. It meant a lot. And I need to apologize to those who felt I may have “abandoned” them. That was never my intention. Always know I am here if you need me, no matter what is going on in my life.
So happy to be “back”, and can’t wait to “bug” you again!!!
GOD GRANT ME THE SERENITY TO ACCEPT THE THINGS I CAN NOT CHANGE; COURAGE TO CHANGE THE THINGS THAT I CAN; AND THE WISDOM TO KNOW THE DIFFERENCE !!!! THIS IS MY DAILY PRAYER.
