My journey continues

Tuesday, August 05, 2014

It has been almost two months since my last blog. So much going on in life. I appreciate all the well wishes from my SP friends. A close family member passed away in June and it was a shock to my family. Have been taking care of my family, especially my DH and my DDs. Exercise has taken a back seat by trying to keep life normal for my girls with their summer activities, but I am back to a consistent routine this month.

It is hard to stay on track when life takes over. For me, as I look back on the last two months, I see that I have maintained well through one of life's most difficult stresses. I have gained a few pounds but still within the upper range of my goal range. Life is a journey with peaks and valleys. Day by day and small steps will help heal the spirit and the body.

    I am so very sorry to hear of the terrible loss your family has suffered.

    I do love the quote "when life takes over" It is just so very appropriate.

    Thank you for checking on me. I am having a bit of a difficult time, but working on working it out. One day at at time, doing the best I can today.

    God Bless you and your family and prayers for healing

    Good job handling your problems.

    God Bless. I lost my brother June 1st and it is such a shock. I miss him terribly and there are days I just want to eat my pain away. But I know that is the worse thing I can do to myself and his memory. You will get better, you have lots of support. Hang in there.

    Prayers to you and your family. I can relate when I lost my brother in January suddenly. It does throw you into a tail spin with your routine. Some days I still feel I'm not back to where I was before the accident yet. Just know, it does get better. emoticon
