So I’m coming to a strange point in my life. I suddenly realize that over the course of a couple years I have become very unwell. Slowly over time my health has deteriorated. Luckily, we have modern medicine to identify the problem. It took a year and a half, and 6 doctors. Once the problem was identified, it is taking a relatively short time to fix. Hallelujah!
So now I am coming to a new beginning. I want to be well, truly well, physically, mentally, emotionally, and spiritually. In order to achieve that I need to begin to actively making goals. I’m going to try and record those here.
I am excited to enter this time of change. I don’t believe it will all be fun, but it is necessary.
So my friends Suzanne and Judy love to exercise. On any given day you hear about Jazzercize, walking, biking, or whatever. I however, am lazy. I am not, never have been much of an exerciser. This would probably be part of the reason I have had a weight problem all my life.
Now when I used to get up at 5 am to meet “my girls” to go walking, I could do it. It helped that Julie would be honking her horn at me, and I knew that would wake my kids. But now she has a new baby, it’s cold, snowy, icy, and sleep sounds so good.
So I am trying to get on my treadmill at least 4 times a week. I’m not going superfast or super long, but it’s more than I was doing. Now we will see if it pays off at my weigh-in. At work we have a POOP group (Pounds Off Or Pay.) I’ve been trying really hard, but I don’t expect much this week (monthly thing.) Now I’m going to read a few blogs and watch some TV. Ooooh! I think I will knit for a while. All this free time is freaking me out!
