I hate blogging

I really hate to blog (which is why there are so few entries here - duh).
Part of the reason I haven't been blogging is that I have fallen backwards and spiraled. I have regained 50 of the 80 lbs I lost. Sort of all started with having surgery and then I wasn't as active as I was before, and it took a long time before I could get back into martial arts (my preferred form of exercise) about the time I was going back was the time I was concentrating on my wedding and well -- just spiraled. A lot of other stresses have entered my life also. I couldn't sell my home (we decided to move into my husband's home and sell mine) and housing prices have plummeted to the point that my house is only worth 2/3 of what I owe now. After making continued payments (and home improvements to put it on the market) we spent about $10,000. As of January, we decided no more payments, we are going to allow it to be foreclosed (can't qualify for a short sale on my own, would have to throw my husbands debt and income into the mix and we decided not to ding his credit).
I don't talk about it a lot, but I have a son facing criminal proceedings, and he took a plea bargain and will be sentenced in April. He could be incarcerated for what he has done for several years. As a mother, I wish he could get off, but as a citizen, I demand justice for his actions. This has been a very difficult thing for me to deal with.
I have decided that I won't allow stress to make me over eat anymore. It is time to get a handle on this again!
I found a new school of martial arts (stressful because it is hard to walk into a new dojo and to do so weighing so much again) and I am going to start taking classes there on Monday. I am so looking forward to it.
