Not an April Fools post

Today is April 1. The first 3 months of 2013 were insane, crazy, sad, tough, on so on. I am at a loss for enough words to describe it all.

My mom passed away from kidney cancer on March 25th. Just a short week ago. she battled this cancer for 6 years. Most likely the cancer developed from years of high blood pressure. Holy crap has it really been only a week. It feels like a lifetime. Even crazier it was a month a day from my last post on 2/24.

I am deeply thankful that my mother in law flew in from Florida to be at my house to watch the kids when hubby has to work. This allowed me to not only be present for my moms passing but also to be around for a few weeks for dad to help him with the next stage. We have been sorting moms items and spending time together. They were married 42 years. Amazing. I may have more to say later but now I am at a loss for words.

I know that before I left to my parents on March 24 I was somewhere around 215. I am ready to bring the focus back to me. It's time. I need to do this. I want to go hard core but I still have 2 weeks here at dads. I would like to have May 1 be 210. Not too tough.

While at Dads I am going to focusing on moving. I haven't exercised consistently in months. I will move by walking 5 of 7 days. Unfortunately it has been raining the last 2 days.
