Rest of My Life

Monday, October 15, 2018

I will be turning 50 next year. There is a fabulous blog I follow on Instagram called "Silver Disobedience", with some amazing truths about getting older. It is so inspiring and encouraging and full of life and adventure. The Positive Bloggers team I joined some years ago has a thread in which one can post a word or phrase as a personal motto for 2018. I immediately thought of Rest of My Life. I want to start defining that, working towards it and have an amazing time. There are plenty of things I would like to improve on. My health, my workout and eating habits, my knitting projects, social interactions and friendships, attending interesting events (like fiber festivals and art shows), traveling. There are many, many wonderful things I want to be a part of and learn about. Time to define the future and let's see where this takes me. Simple steps first. I am using Google Fit and the Sparktracker to monitor steps, and nutrition, and I am using different YouTube resources like Sarah Beth Yoga and Fitness Blender as well as Spark Workouts to give my workouts variety and make it fun. My guest room is set up with a permanent Yoga mat and I keep my Zumba sticks in the bathroom for a quick strength workout. It is nice to keep things like that in plain sight, so I remember to use them.

This will be a fabulous adventure!

    That is a positive phase, and I like it. It is good to read a blog from you again. I've missed your blogs.
    Hope all is well you and your family. Just letting you know I still think about you. BTW 50 is long gone for me. My 50th I celebrated that the fact that I actually made it that far. So everyday now is a blessing and every minute is truly appreciated.

    Take care and once again, glad to see you back.

    I love how you are preparing for your 50th and the rest of your life. My 50th kind of happened onto me. I did take the time to plan a great party and spoiled myself. But did not have time for real reflection. I like the idea

    Rest of My Life is a positive place, must better than over the hill! It is what we do to life, taking control and going the way we choose. So many things outside of our control, but also so many things that we can choose to enrich our lives.

    I didn't join SP till I was 56, so my dear, you're way ahead of the game. Good for you! You will rock the 50's doing healthy things for yourself. Keep it up!
