Guilt

No excuses but really…lupus and its symptoms hurt more than my body. There is so much that I want to do but physically sometimes just can’t.

I get into this terrible cycle of not calling because I don’t want to bother people…and then think it was just last week that I spoke with them.  Terrible because months will go by that I haven’t spoken with them.

What do you feel guilt over?  What do you do to overcome it?

I need to remember that those that love me understand.  Some days are better than others in this belief.

Blessings.

Rockstar

Ya, I am struggling. To stay positive, to be encouraging, to be who I want to be.

Life happens. I want to snack, have wine, not exercise-stuff, that isn’t positive or encouraging. But reality.

I struggle. Struggle with the day to day, routine crap that can tie you down and sink you in a second.

So, in bed by 9pm and taking all I can to get me through the day.

Today is new. Beginning again. Every day is a new day.

Blessings.

Ten Year Challenge

Ya, so I got caught up in this…

First profile picture:

And then December 2018:

I posted that it is a ten year difference, and 115 pounds!!

So incredibly proud of my ten years. I really am in love with my wrinkles. Really!

What do you love about the last ten years? But really? I am so grateful for my weight loss surgery and the gifts it has given me.

I haven’t been well the past couple of days…but I can guarantee that if I didn’t have gastric sleeve I would be much worse now.

I am so thankful for so many things…but especially my surgery.

Blessings.

Bones

Yesterday.  I had a lot going on at work, and wore the wrong shoes.  So last night, my body hurt.  One of the things to help me with my aches has been an Epsom Salt bath.  I also use a bath bomb, one that is scented with Lavender to help relax me.  Well, and a glass of wine.  With my bones and Lupus, taking time to recoup is important.  Understanding that my body needs to have a bit of help in healing.

What do you do to help you relax?  What do you do to help you with your daily routine?

Blessings.
