Curves up ahead.....

Monday, October 14, 2013

I haven't posted a blog in quite awhile and frankly, I simply couldn't. When I last posted, little did I know that in a mere 2-3 weeks, I would suddenly and surprisingly be a young widow, stripped of a thriving and happy marriage of close to 30 yrs. I had already been getting over a very serious bout of pneumonia, but this just threw me into a complete tailspin on top of that.
Fast forward several months, I've begun to exercise again, and back to consciously eating more healthy, and striving for a "new normalcy." I joined a friend's online group to commit to exercising for 60 days, and started on Oct. 1. We weighed, measured ourselves, and took pics to compare in 60 days. I'm doing my best to stay off the scale till at least a month, so I don't get obsessed with it. The scale and I tend to have a love-hate relationship. Will I have more curves up ahead? Probably; but the only curves I want to concentrate on right now, are those I'm gaining, as I continue this health journey.....

    I am so, so sorry! emoticon
I hope that you are able to find that "new normal" and that the support system here as well as in your new group are just what you need to focus on your healthy lifestyle instead of your grief.

Welcome, 2013!

Thursday, January 03, 2013

I have had plenty of health set backs and hindrances in this past year, but I'm not looking at those, but rather forging ahead putting one sneaker in front of the other! After a bad bout with sickness, I put on my pedometer the last couple of days, and regardless of how little it may be starting up, I must focus on ONE STEP AT A TIME!
We must not give up! emoticon emoticon

    You nailed it! My mantra - JUST KEEP MOVING! Doesn't matter how little, just that you are still moving. You know it will improve.

Happy Healthy 2013! emoticon
