A healthy update



Earlier this week, our newspaper had a “promo” challenging readers to participate in a three-month “get healthy” program.

It sounded cool, and I’ve been waiting all week to learn more. The program is not rigid, but gives guidelines to follow. And you’re doing it along with one of the newspaper’s reporters.

Get healthy challenge

Along with the reporter, you check in once a week.

In the paper version of the article, they highly recommend you visit:
AHA for guidelines, tips, assessments, etc.

So I’m gonna try it.
What’s cool: I’ve convinced my husband to join me. :)



It’s been a long time since I’ve updated you all on my progress here.

Tomorrow it’ll be six months since my mother died. In that time period I’ve lost 12-14 pounds.

All I did was reduce my portion sizes and try to stay away from fun foods as much as possible.

I’d like to lose at least 20 more pounds.

Yes, there needs to be exercise.

For anxiety, I started doing a ton of reading. That’s slowed down quite a bit lately.

Wish there was more positive actions I could report.

I hope you all are doing well.

Wow. Hard to believe it's been 6 months.
Thanks for checking in.
Hope you're getting healthy emotionally also.

Thank you, D'.

So much has been going on, I guess I've been using my down time for reading and relaxing. Haven't been interested much in a lot of interaction. Just popping in here and there when the mood strikes me. As much as I miss you all, it is difficult to actively come here.

I've thought about you this holiday, 'cause I came across a really nice letter you sent to me when you were writing LJ friends via pen and paper and snail mail! It has a fun picture of you and the whole piece made me smile.

Ms. Candy, did you receive our Christmas card?

Yours was wonderful in words and the kitties!

Thank you for being a constant in my life.
I hope some day I can be the same for you.
