This blog is my assignment for the team "100 Days of Summer" challenge. Today, Sunday, of the three challenges, writing a blog about the importance of getting healthy right now is gnawing at me.
I've been unhealthy for 20 years, so what's special about today?
For one thing, I didn't really enjoy being unhealthy, its not all its cracked up to be. I had to pay more for my clothes, I had high blood pressure and high cholesterol, I was slow and huffed and puffed a lot, and so forth and so on.
After I lost 20 pounds and all of the above was cured and fixed and shrunk (except for the HBP), I must have slacked off unconsciously (that darn unconscious will get you every time) because I came to a standstill. The standstill turned into a pound, then another. What the heck? Gaining just because its not written down? Is that possible? Yes, I can testify to that. I think its called accountability. OK, Mz. XRSIZE 18, I get it. And I love it. Thanks for the push. As they say, today is the first day of the rest of my life and I want the rest of my life to be active, healthy, sensible, and mentally alive. I want to live to 100, and don't want any part of it be spent bedridden.
