Where I've been & where I'm going...
Tuesday, November 09, 2010
Needless to say, I've been absent from Sparkpeople for awhile now. It's been a crazy, hectic few months, and things are about to get even crazier. I simply haven't made checking in to the site a priority. This doesn't mean I have completely abandoned a healthier lifestyle. I'm simply not making it my sole focus right now (and, in turn, have actually been doing well with losing weight and feeling better about things) There were times I thought about logging in to update, read, get back on track with it all... But something would always take my attention away, and I put it on the back burner.
With that, the reason I'm here now is to report that, in less than a week, we're hopping on an International flight to Beijing, China. My husband's job is sending us there to work/live for six months. This was voluntary, by the way. I've had people ask if I was upset that we "have to" go. We GET to go, and I couldn't be happier about the adventure that's in store! The kids are excited, we're excited, the friends we've already made (who live in Beijing) are excited for us to arrive, and we have family making plans to come visit while we're there. It's been ages since I've flown anywhere, and I've never (aside from Canada, and even that was forever ago) been outside of the United States. So I welcome the chance to experience everything I can, and just take in everything while we're there. We're also hoping to travel elsewhere (Thailand, Malaysia, Japan...) during that time, since it's much easier/cheaper to do so. Regardless, there is plenty to see and do where we'll be staying, and I'm sure the time will pass far too quickly.
In the meantime, I'm closing up my page (not deleting, because I'm sure I'll be back to utilize it once more) and going on a bit of a hiatus. I wish everyone well as they continue toward their goals, whatever they may be, and I hope to see you when I return. Take care, and keep on keepin on!
