Yes - I have returned. I promise to be better, stronger, faster, smarter and healthier

Thursday, March 27, 2014

It really has been a long time since I have blogged or really been on this site. So much has happened, good, bad and indifferent. But I don¡¦t want to dwell on any of that today really.

I really just want to try again to make the commitment to myself on being better, stronger, faster, smarter and healthier in all aspects of my life. With a new position at work I fell as if maybe, just maybe I can really accomplish all my goals this time while assisting my family in accomplishing theirs.

My oldest daughter Heaven has reached the stage in her life where she is trying to balance that Mt. Everest feeling. You know the feeling, right? If I do this and it doesn¡¦t work, then I will tumble down the mountain. But if I do it this away, I can stay right here contently.

She is battling her weight issues that are being caused by her thyroid. Being in middle school, she becoming very self aware and has decided to make some changes. I have explained to her that I will be here to love her, support her and guide her, but I could not do it for her.

So together, we are changing the way we do things. This has only been the first week and I am really proud of her. She has done wonderfully with packing a very healthy lunch for school and eating a healthy breakfast and dinner. The only problem is when I say, no you don¡¦t need that Hershey¡¦s chocolate right now. But secretly, I cannot blame her for wanting a Hershey¡¦s chocolate, I want one too.

Next week, after we have the room set up, we will start working out together in the mornings. I am thinking of starting with Spark People 28 day boot camp. I will admit, it¡¦s for my own gain. We just bought Sea World fun passes (it was a buy one get one free special) and I want to be swim suit ready!!! ƒº I am so going to be gasping for breath when we start this.

The most important reason I am blogging today was to tell everyone how much I have missed you and hope to stick to my commitment this time to make more time to be more social with everyone.
Have a nice rest of your day everyone! I will try to make sure I catch you all up on the good, bad and indifferent this weekend after we done spring cleaning.

Sincerely yours,

Linda
