As yet another year passes and I have made no progress on my journey called "Getting Healthier" and vow to do better this year I have to admit I haven't really thought too hard about the "WHY?" do you want to embark on this journey.... So here is what I have been thinking.... I am tired of my feet hurting so bad when I take a simple walk around the block that I can barely walk when I get home to accomplish anything else. I am tired of my back hurting when I stand at the sink and do dishes or try to stand and do much of anything let alone if I have to bend to get things done. I am tired of being afraid of falling or having to get down on the floor for something and not being able to get back up. I am tired of not being able to buy clothes that are cute and not in a specialty store or out of a catalog because I am to large of a size. I am tired of being out of breath when walking for any distance or playing with my grandchildren. So I guess I am just tired! But how do I fix it? I fix it by eating a healthier diet.... for me... I fix it by starting to get at least ten minutes of physical activity a day. I fix it by losing ten percent of my current weight by September 1, 2020. I fix it by trying daily to improve myself in whatever way I possibly can. For I alone am the captain of this journey. No more excuses. No more negative thinking about not being able to accomplish this feat. No more reading about everyone else's success stories and only dreaming about achieving my own. This is a new year and I am tired of being tired. Time to find some energy and succeed down the path of being awake.

    Welcome back to Shutterbugs!!
    Not sure if you participated in our Weekly Assignments in the past, But want you to know about them because we have so much fun with sharing our photos.
    We started this several years ago to help us get out and get exercise and take photos. But with the Virus now and many of us not getting out as much so we are also sharing photos we have taken in the past. But getting out and about is still something we need to try to do!
    Please come and join us!!
    If you have questions just send me a Sparkpeople Mail or just ask on one of the current assignments!
    Hope to see some of your photos soon!
