Not Well

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.


I’ll Be Honest, I Hate Exercising

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!
