I hate blogging

Saturday, February 28, 2009

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.

    You are courageous and blessed to have family to care about so deeply. I can relate to your son's situation. My son had some stuff to go through too. He now says it helped him learn alot about himself. I wouldn't change his path for anything as I look back on it now. It is not the end of the world to take the consequences, it may just be exactly what he needs. emoticon
    I am so happy for you going back to your exercize dojo. You can do it! By taking care of yourself, you take care of your family. They get so much out of your efforts to stay on track so you can feel good about yourself. Self care is very important to our wellbeing and you will be a great example to all.. establishing a healthy lifestyle for your household. Keep it up!
    I'm proud of you!
