Walking motivation...taking a break. :)
My sweet Nena.
From a high school friend - thank you GH!
I've been here for long enough to have figured out what I need to do...just listen and make one good choice at a time. It's simple, but it's not always easy...but who am I to run away from a challenge!
I'm a survivor of constant dieting since high school (somehow already 50+ years ago!), long distance running, multiple falls from horseback, and weight gain from my own poor habits and "knowing it all." But, despite arthritis, I'm still mobile and active - what a gift!
It's time to quit lurking and start doing...
For right now:
Weight work three times a week, walking every day, yoga, and tai chi.
Planning meals and snacks before I eat
Seeking daily inspiration
Giving myself some credit
For the longer term:
Feeling comfortable in my own skin
Doing 10 real push-ups,
Taking a mountain hike,
Buying my first bathing suit in 20 years,
Praying, 1200-1550 calories a day, daily exercise, tracking nutrients, learning more, asking for help when I need it (whooboy...) and offering support to others. I want to feel the satisfaction of following through.

Time just seems to slip away, and the older we get the faster it seems to go...and I've still got growing to do. I want to be more mindfully grateful. I want to appreciate and make good use of each moment I'm given, give my full attention to whoever is in front of me, and just "be here now."
