Ok, I'm taking that first step.
Updated: Nov 1, 2021
Let me take you on a little journey. I'm 70 years old, divorced, at least 50 pounds overweight, out of shape, bored with retirement, suffering with mild depression - in short, I am not a role model. I wasn't always this way. It has taken me a long time to get here.
As a girl, I was all muscle. I was born that way, and had I been a boy, I might have stayed that way. But there weren't a lot of opportunities for girls in sports. And I needed activity; without it, I drove my mother crazy.
Hardly what you would expect of me now. But several moves during my school years, injuries and bouts of loneliness set up some really bad habits, and I am sorry to say, I still have them resurface whenever I have too much free time or get lonely.
Today, I got a massage, and while I was on the table, I let my mind wander and this blog was created. I am going to begin to turn my life around. I'm not going to diet; I've been there and done that, with the end result being a net increase over time. I don't like exercise; I like sports and team activities but since I have to increase my strength, stamina and flexibility in order to participate in any activity, I guess I need to force myself. Luckily, I like to dance and who can be depressed with music????
I am inviting you to join me on my journey. Let us hold each other accountable. Let's celebrate our successes and support each other when we slip. Every good decision is a step toward success.
