What direction am I heading??
I am in a point in my life where I feel like I am moving in a whole new direction, and that is not neccesarily a good thing. I am approaching 50 at an alarming rate and not sure how I feel about it. I am not in the greatest shape, being overweight and knees that ache from arthritis. Otherwise I feel pretty good. In general my health is ok, just starting to feel older. In my head I am still feeling young. I have the desire to do many things, and that includes physical things, but my body is not so willing. It sucks getting older, and starting to slow down. I think I need to set some realistic goals and figure out how to make by body more in tune with my mind.
I know I need to start walking and moving more. This would be a good start. I want to lift weights at the gym, but I don't want to do it alone. Maybe a good goal would be to find someone to go with me. I really need to begin watching what I eat, and taking my supplements, like my Husband has so lovingly bought for me. I know they will help my body and help me feel better. So there is a big slap to the forehead, Doh!!
Maybe by writing it down on this blog, I might actually have to make some effort and be accountable for it. So if anyone happens to read this, check to see how I am doing...
I know lots of people are in the same boat as me, and yet we all seem to be in denial about it. Why can't we all work together and support each other. I know that all sounds good in theory, but it really is a personal thing. It will never work unless you personally are on board and really want it. Or it becomes a life threatening thing and you need to lose weight or really suffer.
I think it is time to really take it seriously... I will let you know in awhile how it is going. I am going to set a goal to try and lose 10pds by the end of November. So wish me luck....
