Oh hai, it's holidays 2019

Monday, November 18, 2019

So I'm pretty sure the last time I cracked open my laptop was in July for that last blog post. I'm happy to say that through some expensive comfy shoes and a committment to stretching my calves, I've succeeded in bringing down my heel pain considerably!

I had signed up for a 5k and couldn't make it because I am so far behind in being sedentary, and I didn't want to injure my barely healed heels.

October was a blur of candy at my office... so much so that I considered a complete sugar purge/reduction. Instead, I invested in a grill I had access to 3 years ago, and am recommitting myself to batch cooking.

I've been working on a lot of mental self-help, which for me is key in being able to move forward elsewhere.

I don't mind my weight, but I MISS my STRENGTH I used to have (even at this same weight)... as I get older it's harder to ignore. Maybe re-committing sounds empty, but for me it is real, and I remind myself that what's past already happened. It's what I do today and the days ahead that will count for the future.

    Oh, I know you are turning 40, but I'm 70 and how I wish I knew back 30 years ago what I know now. Do this for your 70 year old self. She'll arrive faster than you can imagine.

    I for one am proud FOR you. You may stray but, you always find your way back. YOU are a STRONG Fighter and a Winner!!!

    Whatever you were doing when you lost and maintained 160-pound loss is what I would like to know and maybe what you are focused on now. I am really interested in what you did to lose weight. I have read your profile information and I can't remember you mentioning that. I will go back and read it again because I have missed things before when I'm excited about finishing what I'm reading.

    I'm also going to add you as a friend and hope you will add me. Now on to reading your next Blog and your profile again. emoticon

    That's a great attitude you have adopted. I think re-committing is a wonderful thing and sometimes we need to do it daily as a reminder that we are committing to a healthy long lasting life. You go girl!!

    Good to hear that things are going better! One thing I do know for sure, YOU are able to do anything you set you mind to, and if you focus on strength and well-being, the weight will take care of itself!

    I feel that! My work sidelined me from my favorite activity back in June, and I've lost so much conditioning. I'm still trying to find my way back, because it's miserable not having the strength and cardio conditioning I had gotten used to! We can do it!
