Life Changes

Hello everyone,

I hope all is well with you.

It has been ten days since,

my birthday.

I have been working on,

life changes.

For the last eight days,

I have been doing,

chair yoga.

I want to stretch,

and build strenght,

but, I do not want,

to hurt myself.

I have also,

noticed that carbs,

which I love,

make me very sluggish.

I have cut back on them,


I am trying intermittent fasting.

I have gained weight,

in the past three years,

and I want to get rid of,

what I gained and,

a little more.

I have set a goal.

I do not want,

to develop diabetes,

I do not want to,

face heart issues.

I want buying clothes,

that fit to be a more,

pleasurable experience.

I do not hate myself,

for being a big person.

I am not doing it,

to feel more,


if I do, bonus.

I have a wonderful woman,

in my life,

who looks at me,

like I am gorgeous,

looks at me like I am,


looks at me with,


I doubt Catherine,

will find me more,


but, if she does,


I am sharing this with you all,


it kind of holds me,


and that is a good thing.

A Summer of goals,

a Summer of working towards,

a healthier, sveltier,


Take care of yourselves.

Later girls,

  1. I am beginning
    my journey to increase my quality of life. I have grandchildren that I want to play with and go places with. They both love outdoors and right now I do good to walk back and forth to the mailbox. Today will be the 3rd trip to the gym. It’s really embarrassing that I can’t even last 2 minutes on each of the exercise machines. I’m attempting this thing though because i have also thought about diabetes and heart issues. And like you, I need accountability somehow.
    I love the blogs I have read so far 😊

  2. Hello Janet,
    Change is difficult. I am going through many changes myself right now. The motivation of playing with your grandkids and being there for them is wonderful. Do me a favor, don’t be too hard on yourself, baby steps, baby steps. I am glad you enjoy the blog, I haven’t been writing on it much lately but, I plan a return in January. Happy Holidays and remember, baby steps.
