Or so they say…
It has been a month since I’ve attempted to blog anywhere. I totally had not planned for it to happen that way. A sequence of events had taken my MOJO away and left me dealing with some things that most of us don’t really want to face or deal with during the holidays. Never the less, life happens and sometimes certain events take priority and others have to be put on the back burner.
The Holidays came and went…and the New Year dawned and I am pretty comfortable with 2011 so far. To date, it has been much better than 2010…which in my book wasn’t the best year ever for our families.
With the New Year rang in new goals that I am attempting to keep for this year. One of those is an exercise program where I journal. I know that sounds like a lot of work…but I have set a goal in the weight loss department…and since I love to write…there is something to look forward to AFTER each workout. The weight loss will come with some effort and some time, but I need an immediate gratification and the journaling is that short term fix. I am hoping the long term fix is going to be the weight loss. I’ve been putting in the effort…Lord knows…I can’t wait to start seeing those results.
I think the only thing keeping me from really blogging lately is migraines. I can’t explain them. I really haven’t had migraines since I gave up soda two years ago this January. I primarily drink tea and water. I have to say that I never understood pain that is debilitating. I don’t have chronic back pain or knee pain or any kind of chronic pain. And although I always felt for people I knew and still do feel for people I know with this sort of constant pain…I’ve never experienced it until recently with my recurrent migraines.
It has made the desire to get up and exercise…especially difficult. I feel half the time I just want to sleep because at least while subconscious I don’t notice the pain as much. On a few occasions the pain has actually awakened me from my slumber. I realize that the logical thing to do at this point would be to go to the doctor…but what happens when you don’t have the strength to get there because your migraines are that severe? Yeah…alright…I am already feeling the lectures from my friends forming. It is okay…I will go in if they continue…usually by the time I get the doctor’s appointment squared away, the migraines disappear and there is nothing to diagnose. Frustrating, trust me, I know.
Well this is a start…here’s to my first post of 2011. I know. Crazy…I should have had several by now. Thank goodness Kathy (my co-author here) has posted this year. At least, you know the blog is still alive and kicking.
So how did you celebrate the New Year?
How are you surviving the cold?
Would love to hear back from you :)
