Short Note

Monday, June 10, 2013

I haven't blogged in a while but I just had to post a short note about some good health related news I got lately.

My business partner and I submitted health information and lab work a couple of weeks ago because we are going to purchase key man life insurance policies on each other. I was notified that due to my excellent health I qualified for the best possible rates provided for the insurance we were asking for.

That wouldn't have happened four years ago before I started my healthy lifestyle journey.

Maintenance is tough for me right at the moment - getting a divorce after almost 23 years of marriage. This good news about the life insurance policy was a welcome lift.

Tonight I'm grateful for my youngest daughter who is doing a great job of helping mom make healthy choices at moments when I'm not so inclined.

emoticon Now I'm off to walk the dog for 15 minutes and do my plank for my challenge team before reading and bed.

emoticon No matter what your challenges - hang in there. The effort is always worth it.

    Great news. What an accomplishment.

Hang in there, all the stress will pass from the divorce in time. 23 years is a long time.

    emoticon on the insurance rate good news! Your sharing that makes me take a longer view for a very important moment. I have a cup of chocolate nonfat frozen yogurt on my desk that does not taste wonderful and will definitely reawaken the sugar cravings. Yet, I had not quite talked myself out of eating it.

Your rate news made me pause. I want to receive that same kind of news, too. In order to do that, I need to make the good incremental choices.

I choose to start with this cup. emoticon

emoticon to read about a divorce. Even when it's the right decision, it is never the easy process to go through.

    It is always good to hear from you. Sometimes life just takes us on a side trip and makes it difficult to fit everything you want into a day and it seems that blogging is the first thing to go. emoticon on the great health report and insurance break. On the other issue - well - this too shall pass emoticon
