12/23/2016: The best thing that happened to me in 2016 was a Grade III hamstring tear. I had 12 weeks of physical therapy which helped so much with my flexibility and balance. I started taking Yoga after Physical Therapy so I wouldn't backslide and I.JUST.LOVE.IT! I'm still not very bendy but I'm getting better every day. I am usually a dead pigeon in class so I hope that by the end of the year I can get into plow and pigeon pose.

The 2017 Project is Me!! I've lost 65 pounds since August 4, 2015; getting rid of that weight has made it easier to increase my physical activity so I've got a bunch of physical goals to work on. I still am eating out of boredom so I've got some mental work to do also so I eat more mindfully.

Thanks for dropping by my page. I hope you'll friend me (if we're not friends already) or leave me a little note and let me know what you do that is successful so I can learn from you!
