Back on the Spark

Wednesday, August 03, 2011

I had a rough month. July was full of hello's and goodbye's and it was just really depressing for me. Finally I went on a trip ALONE for 3 days to Germany to see a family friend and came back completely rejuvenated. I stood on the top of the tallest peak of the German Alps drinking a milchkaffe as a cloud rolled over me and everything just went away. I hiked. I took pictures. I drank German beer in a German beer tent surrounded by liederhosen and derndle-klad townsfolk dancing to oompa music. I was away from the pressures of the kids. I knew I could trust the hubby to take care of things. I knew he wasn't jealous or angry that I was there. I felt absolutely no pressure at all from anyone or anything... for three whole days. It was exactly what I needed and I am restored.

I am back to working out and eating right and feeling good about things. I took my first spin class today and I loved it. I've got strength tng tomorrow and spin class again on Friday. I found a workout buddy whose enthusiasm will continue to motivate me AND she also has 3 boys who are remarkably similar to mine. I am very fortunate :) I feel great!

    Good for you! Sounds like you are back on track. Time away always has such a great effect on our minds. Sometimes you need that break.
