Blog Revival – Day 2

So I am blogging again.  Maybe this will be a lasting relationship.  My relationship with blogging sure did start out strong back in 2005.  What a different place I’m in 8 years later. A different place physically, emotionally, and even spiritually.  I could say a lot more about all of that, but I’m going to choose to let those words be enough for now.

One thing I will say is that I was much healthier back then!  I had recently lost a lot of weight and continued to keep it off.  I had a tummy tuck in 2006 to get rid of the extra skin I carried around.  I looked and felt good.  I was way healthier in my mid to late thirties than I ever was in my mid to late twenties.  Now that age 44 is drawing near I know I need to get there again.  Since moving back to the states I have put on a few pounds.  (A few equals about 30.)  The first couple of years I added about 10 pounds.  The other 20 seemed to just show up overnight.  The first year I exercised.  The last three years have been mostly exercise free.  Numerous times I’ve said I was going to do something about my weight gain and added health issues, but my heart really wasn’t in it.  I know I need to get back to where I was, but my heart still really isn’t in it.

And stress…I am feeling it again.  When I was in my twenties I got an ulcer and then was diagnosed with a spastic colon.  It wasn’t pretty.  Both happened during my first 3 years of teaching and came about because of the stress of disciplining kids all day long.  I’m teaching again…and well…my body is telling me about it.  I know if I lost some weight, exercised, and took up a hobby (Blogging….I’m looking at you!) I might be able to handle the stress better.

I think I need an all expenses paid vacation to Disney World or some fun in the sun on an island cruise to kick start my de-stressing period.

Now if you’ll excuse me I need to go eat some pizza and breadsticks.  A girl has to have her priorities straight, and if you’ll remember, pizza was always a priority!
