So I haven't blogged in awhile. The past three weeks have been long, stressful and sad. My grandma Mrs. Helen "Hoho" Hall passed 08/05/2010 after a long struggle with emphysema. I already miss her terribly, but am glad to know she is now in heaven with a perfect body dancing the polka. Stress is bad news for me because I use it as an excuse to eat everything I see. I'm sure I have gained at least 5lbs in the last three weeks :( But I am still committed to getting healthy. I love how inspiring small things can be. I ran into an amazing web site and blog this morning that I really recommend for others to read www.operationbeautiful.com/ and her blog www.healthytippingpoint.com/ . She has good recipes and fitness goals on her blog and the web site is a good way to love and encourage friends and complete strangers.......and maybe even yourself! I really want to focus on getting at least 30 min of exercise everyday this week. My body also would really like it if I would focus on fruits and veggies too......so I will. But I may still need an occasional meatloaf sandwich.......like today for lunch....mmmmmmm. I really love new tips and tricks on batteling weight and self image so if you have some good ones please send them my way. I also would like to thank everyone for the support and love sent my way, I may not always say it or show it, so I will now.
