What to do with the rest of this year so it doesn’t stink 100%

This year is one we definitely won’t be able to forget but definitely will want to.

I’d never dreamed the world as we knew it would be a distant memory. I’m still praying that we can get back a little bit more of what normal was and it be even better. For surely we have learned something from all of this.

It’s times like these I feel that I am blessed that I live in a rural area on top of mountain where I can escape the city where you are constantly reminded of how a virus has changed everyones lives.

So, how can this yr be salvaged from a virus scare so great it has shut down any interaction with others unless they live with you?

First don’t take for granted you actually have people near you. Some people have no one to help them get through. Even though some enjoy being alone, there are so many that hate it and are falling in depression because of it.

We definitely need to pray more because only God can get us out of this mess. We need to focus on things we can change for the better.

I don’t know about you but I have put on so much weight this yr that I don’t think I’ll ever get it off. It’s because of stress. This year has totally become one bad habit after another. I do good for a week and then I’m downhill for three. It’s really not all Corona either. It’s Corona on top of other things. It’s like the virus just makes everything worse.

Today, I want to try again, I might fail and there’s a good chance I will fall and I’ll be on the couch stuffing my face knowing the junk food I’m eating is not going to make me feel any better come tomorrow. What do I do then? Try again because that’s all we can do.

So other than trying to get healthier there are other ways of finding happiness during this crazy year.

We can try to be nicer. Some people are so stressed that just a smile can brighten their day. I know we are all wearing masks but this is where those eyebrows and your eyes come into play. I see people when I go get groceries and you can just tell those that are trying to smile and be happy even with a mask.

Don’t forget little things are important. Do things that causes happiness inside of you. Read a book, have a campfire, go swimming before it’s too late, watch a feel good movie, write someone, or call them. Do acts of kindness, let people know you care and love them. More than anything don’t forget to pray. Be thankful for what you have because no matter what you’re going through or how bad things seem. There’s always someone worse off than you.

So let’s finish 2020 strong together! We can do it, it may be a struggle but we can do it!

Though the struggle is real ,so is God!

Thank you for reading and God Bless ❤️

Happy Sunday!

It’s been since January since I posted.

First off I’d like to say in my last post I was really wanting 2020 to be not only a good year, but my year. My year to turn my life around.

That actually was starting to not even be in the cards for me.

The end of January I accidentally chopped the tip off my finger. Thankful, just the tip no stitches but I had to be careful for a few weeks not to hit it on anything or it would start bleeding. So, that set me back and this quarantine came in to play and well that’s a bummer in itself.

I don’t know how many of you have followed me in the past but from September of 2016-September 2017 I did a diet exercise blog and I had a goal and I met that goal.

Now it’s 2020 and due to stress, and aging my weight has went back up. It’s not from a lack of trying. It’s really a hormonal imbalance, cortisol , and fibromyalgia.

This year I wanted to get better but honestly I kept getting worse. My quality of life was diminishing from my eyes. I was tired all the time. If that wasn’t keeping me down than pain in my joints and brain fog had me. Then if that wasn’t enough my weight kept going up and nothing I did or tried helped me.

Then a little over a week ago I tried a cup of coffee and a supplement that changed my life. No, this is NOT a sales pitch. I just want you to know that I really am back to blogging and I hope I continue feeling like this or even better. I’m even lost some ounces. It doesn’t sound like much but I’m just glad the scale has stopped going up every week. I can’t wait to get back to my chiropractor because then I should be totally 100% back to living.

I hope you’re all doing well. I know being quarantined is very hard. I’m grateful I live in the mountains and I can enjoy being outside without worrying about being too close to anyone.

I’m still doing Peloton. That is the exercise app I told you about in January. I believe it’s still free to try out, so check it out if you can. I didn’t have to have a credit card during my free trial so hopefully it’s still like that. I joined the first day after trying it because when something works for me, I jump on board without overthinking it.

I’ve also been missing church but I’ve heard great messages and singing online. I wish there was that much on the Internet on a regular basis. If you have a relationship with the Lord don’t let the not being able to gather keep you from praying, listening to online churches, or drive in church, or the message or any gospel songs. Remember, they may take the building but they can’t take God from you. Your relationship with him can still be as strong as you want it to be.

I know the Struggle is Real, but So is God!

Thank you so much for reading! I hope I’ve helped someone!

Have a Blessed Day!

Hey, I’m back

I don’t know if anyone has missed me but I stopped posting last yr.

Then for some reason out of the blue I deleted all my old blogs and decided to start over.

My old blog was about diet and exercise. I wrote about my diet and exercise and had weight goal to reach in a years time. Long story short I met my goal, quit blogging and gained all my weight back. Yes, it’s quite the horror story I know.

My new blog will be about a mixture of things. Maybe you will find me interesting maybe you won’t. I don’t think I’m all that interesting myself.

So, why do I want to blog? Because, I find it to be very cathartic and a way to escape for a few minutes. I love writing even if the grammar part is not my area of expertise. I have self published six Christian children’s books. You can find them on Amazon. Just look up Rachel Huddleston and you will find them.

This being my first blog after deleting all the old I’ll tell you a little about myself.

I’m 45 yrs young. Im a Christian and happily married. I’m a mother of three children. One is 21 and the other two are teenagers. I am a housewife but I do babysitting on the side and do secretarial work for my husbands business.

I struggle with my weight, age related aches and pains and sometimes just life itself. That’s why I may of changed my blog outer appearance but the title is still relevant. My Struggle is Real!

I hope that there might be something I may write about in the future that will help someone or just be an interesting read.

For now I’m getting ready to play my new Hallmark monopoly game with my youngest because it’s a rainy day here and a very lazy Saturday.

Thank you for reading my introduction,

I hope you have a blessed day! I also hope you come back to read my blogs that follow.
