Just so it doesn’t seem like my life is all doom and gloom I want to post a few accomplishments over the last few years. They are not end-alls but merely pit stops (some in which I have lingered way to long) along my journey.
The first is the loss of 40 lbs and regaining some of my health and energy back. While a great accomplishment this is one of the areas where I have been resting bit too long. I have 40 more pounds to lose and it is time to get moving.
Biking. Yes, over the past year I have released the car, some…okay not enough, but I am back in my saddle for the first time in (big gulp) 30 years. Yes, since I got my driver’s license. And I am loving it. My legs and arms have both gained some strength. I don’t fall nearly as much as I used to and that is a great feeling. As a matter of fact, I can’t even remember if I have fallen in the last six months (since the hard tumble down the stairs sometime last year). A huge victory. I want to take a bike trip (with M) and I want to lose my fear of biking through the city without the security blanket of M by my side to help me with anything that might go wrong.
Huge donation piles out the door. Yes I can see the floor in the family room. One thing I have done is to take pictures of all of the outgoing piles and the room at some points along the way. I will post these.
Eating healthy. Becoming Vegan, unprocessed, and organic. I feel great. No more naps in the afternoon. Unless I want to.
