Eastern Caribbean

As some of my long time readers know, I went on a number of cruises with my mom over the last few years. Well, my friend D and I are going to the Caribbean on November 23rd!  I am so excited! I loved travelling with my mom but being a single gal with no restrictions sounds marvelous!

My brother mentioned us all going on a cruise together for Christmas this year. Wouldn't that be cool?!?

In the past, the cruises incented me to kick up my game and achieve my weight loss goals. I am gonna put the pedal to the medal.

Bon Voyage!

Project Katie J

Wow, it seems longer then a month since I posted! Is anyone still out there? I sure hope so!

First of all, I am so bummed about Google Reader being gone. I know it's old news now but I feel lost without it. What are you guys using to read the blogs you follow?

I am healing physically. Still hard to bear weight with my left hand but it's coming along.  Still have a faint trace of bruising near my left eye. My weight has held steady miraculously. My issue has been not eating enough (not hungry) which throws my blood sugar out of whack.

My job was terminated last week since I did not have any more time off available. I was just not prepared to go back yet. They said I can reapply when I get clearance from the doctor but I have decided to wait a few months and then consider going back then.

I have spent a lot amount of time caring for others even to the point of compromising my own health and well being and I need to make ME a priority NOW. Why does it seem selfish to take care of yourself? Why don't I feel worthy? Why did neglect myself? Why am I settling? (whole other post!) There are no more excuses to hide behind. Face the truth and reality of it all and make the changes to enable you to be happier and healthier. I deserve it!

Since it's been awhile since I exercised I decided the Wii was a good way to start. I love music and dancing so it helped get some emotion out.

I do plan on being here more for sure so I hope to hear from you all soon. xoxox
