My healthier ME journey

I am a 56 years old and live in the northern tip of NH. My goals have changed a lot lately. I recently fit into my first pair of size 14 jeans and I like what I am seeing. But I am also learning to like the person on the inside. She is someone that I want to get to know.

I also have goals that aren't weight, exercise or nutrition related with is totally new for me. I have discovered hiking and I love it.
My goals for this summer are:
1 Be able to walk a 5K again ...

Yes to the pedicure - i've never gotten one either! I am however grateful to be able to do my own. Having taken care of my elders, it is important. To have the luxury of someone to fully care for your feet - sounds sweet. Hope you will do that. hugs, Janey and Happy Birthday!!!!

I understand about losing your home in a fire. It's been 14 mos since we lost ours. Wouldn't want to live those next 9 mos over ever again. They say the same about birds, that it is hard on them when they've been adopted to see the previous Mommy and Daddy. Glad you found a good home for her.
