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!

Take a moment

I had the day off from babysitting today. That means I have time to get the house cleaned up and laundry done. Two things that are never ever 100% done in my house. There is always something to clean and at the end of the day ,dirty laundry shows up again.

I straightened the house, swept, cooked, and started laundry. It’s going on 1:15 and I have a list of things that I need to do but I didn’t want to start another project. I wanted to go outside. The sun is out , it’s sixty degrees and it’s a beautiful afternoon that will not last long. Forecast says snow flurries are coming in by late tonight or early tomorrow morning.

So, I took a moment and put me first. I deserve an hour outside doing something fun and good for me too. I put on my headphones and jogged a mile around my house. Then when I finished I walked a couple more miles. It was so much fun. I usually jog a round in circles at the church but it was a nice change. It was also more of challenge since our yard goes up and down and I would go from a gravel driveway to the yard.

I had no idea that taking a moment for me and letting the housework go would be okay. It was though, it was okay to put me first. I usually put off doing something for me until I get everything done and then it’s too late or I’m too tired. If I would of waited just an hour later it would of been too cold. In one hour the weather went from sunshine and partly cloudy to just windy and cloudy.

My message is this. It’s okay to take a moment. Sometimes a moment is what we need to feel our best. It’s good for our mental health and emotional well being. I struggle with taking moments for myself because just like a lot of things in my life The Struggle is Real!

Have a Blessed Day and Take a moment!
