Back Again

Thursday, August 01, 2013

It's been months since I put in any effort here. I've just been whining and feeling sorry for myself. But, recently, a friend had a bit of a heart scare....ended up being nothing and when she wrote about her joy at this good news and vowed to take better care of herself, I was envious...and then I realized that I don't have to wait until I have some health crisis to start taking better care of myself. I can do it now. i don't have to be envious of people who are active and out enjoying life...I can do that too. I just have to take better care of myself.

So, today, I tracked my calories for the first time in MONTHS and I promised to take at least a 20 minute walk...I walked for 40 minutes instead. And before I came into the house, I did all of my back stretches, which feel wonderful once I get up off the couch and do them. (Trying to "untrap" a pinched nerve in my upper back...the numb torso thing has really been hard for me to deal with.)

Oh, and I still had time to make something. Ha!
