In my quest to feel like "me" again, I have been reevaluating my home, my habits, and myself. Walker left a mess when he moved out, which I literally closed the door on, thinking I would get to it when winter rolled around and forced me indoors. That never happened. So, first order of business is cleaning up the debris left when an eleven year relationship ends.
However, that is not fun work and, quite frankly, I have had trouble staying motivated to do it. So I promised myself a reward and gave myself til fall to finish the task. The reward? A week at the beach. I love the beach, always have. I have not dipped a toe in the ocean since just after I finished cancer treatment in 2010. It's time.
But my habits and my health have been pretty low on the priority list lately, so I needed to attend to that, too. What good is a fabulous beach vacation if I am too tired and too run down to enjoy it? With that in mind, I dusted off my old SparkPeople account and got to work tracking my daily intake of food and water, as well as my exercise and how much sleep I am getting. I know the trend is FitBit inspired these days, but I am familiar with SparkPeople, I enjoy the camaraderie of the other members' support, and it is TOTALLY FREE!! More money in the bank for the beach!! My little yoga girl at the top of my blog has been updated. Sadly, she moved backward from her old spot but hey, she knows the way to the finish line. All I have to do is push her there. Wish me luck!!
