Where The F#ck You Been???

A lot can happen in a year. And hot damn has it ever!

Aside from the usual stress of life in general, I've had 2 fairly life altering happenings since I fell off the proverbial (blogging) wagon.

First, I broke my back. Yep, you heard that right. Compression fractures in 2 vertebrae in my middle back. Hurt like a mother f@cker. Months of wearing a back brace, followed by months of physical therapy - then I found out that I have degenerate disk disease and osteoarthritis in my lower back.

The second, and most recent, happening is that my (type 1 diabetic) son was just diagnosed with Celiac disease. I'm still in the adjusting/learning phase of being gluten free - so I'm sure you'll hear much more about it in the days to come.

It feels like life just keeps sucker punching me around every corner, you know?


But, I'm sick and tired of feeling, well, sick and tired. So things have got to change. It's time to make health, nutrition and exercise a priority.

We're forging a plan of attack - which we'll share with you in the days to come.

Time to make this reality...

Standing Up Again

Well hello, blog world.

I have been staring at this screen for almost an hour trying to figure out how to word this post.  What can I say?  I'm embarrassed.  It's been 2 days shy of a year since we've posted anything, and it's been about equally that long since I've done anything for my health.

I could make lots of excuses.  I could talk all about how things haven't been easy.  I'm not going to though.  The past is behind us, and that's where I'm going to leave it.  We are moving forward.  We've decided to start blogging again, and start living life the way we want to in general.

This about sums it up!

So if anyone is still around out there, welcome back.  It's time to stand up once again. We are back to get healthy, get fit and remember what it's like to feel proud of ourselves.

I'll leave you with one of my favorite quotes from J.K. Rowlings.

We are definitely at rock bottom here, but then again, you have to start somewhere.
