Homework for Sunday

Sunday, May 06, 2012

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.

    I didn't know there was more to "Tomorrow never comes" --- and you mean my grandma didn't make that saying up!?!!?!? It took me years to figure out she really didn't play 3rd base for the Red Sox --- she said she did!

    Haha! Love it. I firmly believe that writing down what you want is the first step to attaining what you want. I'm so excited to have you as part of the 100 days of summer challenge. Your wry sense of humor is infectious!
