2014: Entering the "You're not getting any younger" Phase of Life

I reached my desired weight in October last year. I have been trying to achieve that goal for more than two decades without success—that is, until I joined SparkPeople.

1) My first goal for this year is to stay within 3 pounds of that desired weight.

For the last nearly 5 years, my time has been focused on being caregiver for my husband's mother. She lived in our home until Dec. last year when at age 93, her needs became greater than what we could safely provide. It ...
I reached my desired weight in October last year. I have been trying to achieve that goal for more than two decades without success—that is, until I joined SparkPeople.

1) My first goal for this year is to stay within 3 pounds of that desired weight.

For the last nearly 5 years, my time has been focused on being caregiver for my husband's mother. She lived in our home until Dec. last year when at age 93, her needs became greater than what we could safely provide. It was essential a 24-hour gig. I had no idea how hard it would be to focus on anything else.

I also work from a home office and sometimes describe myself as an agoraphobic but without the fear. Meaning though I rarely leave the house, it is not because I'm afraid of what's outside. So...

2) Secondly, I want to be more involved in community, both here at SparkPeople.com and in the corporeal world.

The next goal for 2014 comes from the fact I am taking to heart the reality that days, months, and years pass faster than I realize. Therefore...

3) I want to minimize (even eliminate) the self-imposed obstacles that prevent me from being fully engaged in my own life.

And my fourth goal...
4) Remember daily to be grateful for all of the wonderful aspects of my life.

Thank you for your kind comment on my blog, "In Memory of My Dear Friend, Little_Queen." The Mary Pickford quote was one of her favorites. Have a blessed day.

Thanks for your comment on "Ankle Surgery Update" blog. I have a walking cast now. I really hate the cast. I seem to stumble a lot.

We have received quite a bit of snow. I have cabin fever really badly.

Thanks, Bruce

Thanks for you nice comment on my "Sacred" blog. As the pain from my injuries started getting worse, my activity level dropped quite a bit. Sometimes I felt like I was going backwards. I bought a lace-up sports-style ankle brace. I also tried to jog a little.

But as time went on, I was grinding to a standstill. Every physical activity became increasingly painful. The original diagnosis back in May just looked for broken bones. The doctor gave me a prescription for physical therapy, which seemed to help. But when I tried to resume normal activity levels, I found that my pain level quickly increased and flew right past my pre-physical therapy level.

I hope I can get rebuilt so I can do the thing I need to do, and those thing I enjoy doing.

Thanks, Bruce
