No caps or exclamation points. I am trying something different, public accountability, to get back to regular healthy eating.
Activity is great. I wear a fitbit and ensure I reach my goals and more. I have learned to enjoy movement, especially walking.
Retirement is pretty good! I am doing meaningful volunteer work at a hospital, and took assignments that include moving around and working with people. I have begun a serious study of classical guitar using the Royal Conservatory of Music curriculum (Level 4 for all who might know about this) with a teacher who I can work with and an hour a day, at least, of practice. I am also attending some classes that help me to a deeper understanding of my faith.
And I still emotionally eat. Not every day, or I would be back where I started. To be honest, most of the time the food does not taste very good, and I have negative physical consequences with regard to stomach upsets, and so on. I know exactly why I emotionally eat, and usually very consciously choose to do it. This ball is entirely in my court, no one else's and I am to one to address it.
So, the try for public accountability. Let me see if it works.
