Don't Look Now!

Here I am!

I needed a break from blogging, a break from worrying about my weight, and I took it -- for a long time. I don't know if anyone even checks this page anymore, but I don't care. I'm just gonna keep writing to write.

The last few months have been filled with a lot of downs for me. Life started spiraling around the end of May when I started a beautiful Saturday morning like any other, and proceeded to black out and fall on the floor in my kitchen. From there, I went on to learn that I have an issue with my heart called Low Ejection Fraction, which means my heart doesn't pump blood out with enough force as it should. My dizzy/blackout spells may be caused by this condition, so I'm seeing a Cardiologist soon to start treatment.

I battled three, count 'em 3, rounds of Mastitis in 5 weeks, which left me totally wiped out. My husband had to assume Mommy responsibilities each time because I was totally wiped out.

And to top it all off, I find myself back in the 160's.


After toying with the idea of doing South Beach, I decided to start counting points again today. New month, new start. My son starts early Pre-School, my daughter turns 1, my husband turns 31 and we celebrate our 9 year wedding anniversary all in the next 4 weeks.

It's time I start making myself a priority around here.

With the few hours a week I have with just The Little Little One whilst The Big Little One is in school, I will focus on exercising on some level. Whether it's yoga, walking, the 30 Day Shred, or dancing around the living room with my girl, I'm going to get it done. I'm tired of feeling sorry for myself. I'm tired of being tired. I'm tired of letting myself go.

So, we start again. We keep getting back on the horse because that's all we can do.

We keep going!
