Goal Setting for the Next Step on the Journey

I am a mom of 3 semi-adult daughters who are (were) all college athletes. I was once one as well but lost my path after giving birth and raising my girls.

My husband and I continue to enjoy the empty nest that began over a year ago. With the girls away, I find myself with time on my hands to enjoy new and reconnect with old activities. The choice I need to make is to exercise more and not work more with the time on my hands. I could be called a workaholic. Because I really do ...
I am a mom of 3 semi-adult daughters who are (were) all college athletes. I was once one as well but lost my path after giving birth and raising my girls.

My husband and I continue to enjoy the empty nest that began over a year ago. With the girls away, I find myself with time on my hands to enjoy new and reconnect with old activities. The choice I need to make is to exercise more and not work more with the time on my hands. I could be called a workaholic. Because I really do love my work and get to do and see interesting places. But...

I want to continue to make outdoor activities the venue where my husband I reconnect with the free time along with recreational travel that includes physical activity.

I want to feel strong and healthy so that I feel exhilarated by outdoor activities and not exhausted by them.

I realize this is a journey just like it was a journey to get to the unhealthy space that I was in when I began the journey to health.
