The Lifestyle I was Born to Live - Take Two
Tuesday, January 21, 2014
I took some time to type in a blog about how I'm not "starting over" - again - but how I'm living the lifestyle I was born to - and it got lost! So here goes, again:-)
I don't feel like trying to re-do what I had written, so the bottom line is this: I'm getting more active, eating better, and living life between the many days that I'm sick. (No, I don't want to talk specifics) What if it doesn't get better? I have to live within the confines of what's going on.
So I'm proud of myself is really the bottom line. I rode my bike late this morning, did a set of weights (day 2 - woo hoo!), went to the Wellness Center that I just joined to walk on the treadmill, and plan to have another bike ride later today. None of these has been for very hard or very long - my aim is to create daily habits, not to run a marathon today. After all, I have to start where I am today, which is pretty much at the bottom and then below that:-)
And I'm trying a new approach for eating. No, I won't get into specifics, but we'll see if it produces positive or negative results:-)
I'm thankful for the 5% Challenge that I just started on Saturday - go starfish! I confess, teammates, that I didn't do such a great job this weekend. I met my new grand-nephew on Saturday so we were out of town. Such a cutie!!! And a snuggler! On Sunday, I was sick most of the day in bed.
But that's life. Things happen. I will STILL choose to be as happy and as healthy as I can be. That means learning (at age 50) to take care of myself. I WILL do it - that's the lifestyle I was born to have:-)
