Got some housework done, started working on altering Mom's dress for the wedding. It's gonna be alot of work...but got the shoulders taken in. Want her to try it on before I go any further to make sure we've taken up enough. At least we have started.
Co-worker taking us to pick up our car tonight. I think I'm ready for this new adventure. I want to explore the countryside with my hubby and have "Fun". A new stage of life. Looking forward to blowing off some steam. Clearing out the garage will be worth it in multiple ways....we've needed to do it for a long time...the car gave us incentive. It was worth it to push hubby to clean it out and help him clean and carry stuff around.
A new stage of life...starting to deal with things long neglected. Life is passing by and we need to get on with some of the dreams I've had. We wait too long and the moment is gone.
This year has been a year of progress for me.
Exercise has become a part of my daily routine.
Ziplining...dealing with fear of heights...not letting them limit me and not letting fear be in control. Respect fears but don't let them paralyze me.
Cleaning out the garage...it's been full of too much collecting and then with closing down both parents homes in the last couple of years...the overflow went into our garage. Just didn't seem to have the energy or strength to deal with it. A new car stimulated me...not to keep it outside.
My husband finally got rid of two vehicles that haven't worked on the driveway and we donated them to charity and they came and got them.
Now a Fun Car. We have dreamed of this and talked about it all our marriage. But there was always other priorities children, parents, family etc. etc. and now it's OUR TIME. I am so looking forward to time alone exploring with my hubby. A new way to blow off steam and explore and not put it off until the moment has passed or we're too old or disabled to climb in and out of it. Maybe he'll have to invent a chair lift to get us in and out of it :)
I have made positive changes in my life this year with eating. Progress seems slow with the scale but notice changes in body reshaping. My legs are strong and I've had the energy to lift, carry and move heavy things in the garage. I've had the strength to do what before seemed overwhelming.
This year has been a productive year toward taking care of myself and moving towards a heathier me. I see the positive changes in my life. I am doing it!
