LAINIE'S NEW HEALTHY LIFESTYLE

I have let life pass me by for too many years. Over the past decade, I have done a few things I never thought I would ever do. I went to New York City for a work summit. I've always wanted to visit New York City and was always afraid to go there. The main reason being that I would have to fly there. I got over that fear of flying to make that trip. I never imagined I would ever get over my fear of flying. It's still a little scary, but I know I can do it. A couple of years later, I flew ...
I have let life pass me by for too many years. Over the past decade, I have done a few things I never thought I would ever do. I went to New York City for a work summit. I've always wanted to visit New York City and was always afraid to go there. The main reason being that I would have to fly there. I got over that fear of flying to make that trip. I never imagined I would ever get over my fear of flying. It's still a little scary, but I know I can do it. A couple of years later, I flew again to Memphis this time. I did so much better that time. Then in October 2010, I went on a cruise with some of my family. I was so nervous, but I wanted an adventure. I had such a great time and I want to go on another one. I have let too much of my life pass me by.

In 2013, I went through a lot of changes. My son graduated from college in May. We lived with my sister for five months to help her out financially. It was suppose to be for a couple of years, but I didn't do well living in the country. My son got a job in downtown Savannah as a graphic designer/illustrator with an up and coming company. We decided to move to Savannah. We found a great house to rent. I have my own wing of the house with my bedroom, home office, and my son's studio. It is perfect for us. My whole frame of mind changed. I'm loosing the weight I gained living at my sister's house. We are both getting healthier.

My son has already started eating organic. He's eating more fruits and veggies than he has ever done in his 23 years. I am so proud of him. I'm do the same, but I can do better. We will be working together to continue eating organic and eliminating processed foods as much as possible.

We are also working on exercising more. I love walking, but there was no place for me to walk in the country due to my fear of snakes. Now, we have a pretty good neighborhood to walk in. Plus, there are several parks to walk in. I will definitely be upping my time walking. I work from home and work long hours, but I can take as many breaks as I want to. I will be going for a walk in the morning and afternoon. I will also be doing a Walk Away the Pounds workout 3-5 days a week.

This is definitely going to be the year for me to get healthy. I want to get off some of the medication I am on. I know I can do it. I will have to work hard for it and I am determined.

emoticon Lainie, that makes my sad heart smile. I know he's better off with his mother playing his way through heaven. Our hearts only hurt for the ones we love.

Hope your sale is going beautifully!

Hi Lainie! BB is killing me! I am sad that Nicole went home....although I would have probably been a little sadder if Donny had gone. I hope hope hope hope hope that Christine is next to go, and that somehow Nicole gets to come back to the house. That would be awesome. Christine is coming off as very very full of herself, don't you think? And she's so flirty/touchy with Caleb. I can't imagine what her husband must be thinking and feeling.

Other than BB, how are you? I hear you are moving! I hope that its a good move and that you'll be very happy in your new home!
Hugs,
Pixie

Hi Lainie! Who do you think is going home on BB? I will be sad either way. I will be so glad when Christine goes. I want Donny or Nicole to win but I don't think either of them will. Right now I think it will be Derick. We'll see!

Hope you are having a good week!
Hugs,
Pixie

Hi Lainie! BB was good last night. I didn't mind that Jacosta left. She seemed nice enough but wasn't really playing the game. I really want Victoria to go soon since she isn't playing, either.

Now that Heyden is gone, I am rooting for Donny or Nicole. They seem nice enough although I don't see the live feeds so maybe they are not really so nice, lol. I kind of like Zac! He definitely has a lot of personality. Hubby and I still chuckle over "Fruit Loop Dingus."

Hope you are doing well and that your week has been a good one!
Hugs,
Pixie
