Happy holidays! I hope your days have been merry and bright! This post finds me in a MUCH better place, both physically and mentally. When I last posted, I was not doing so well, but I saw my medical provider and was put on a hormone patch and let me tell you, the difference has… Continue reading Habit building
I finished my current workout program yesterday, LIIFT4! I’ve done this program many times in the past; I’ve lost count. I just love it so much and it’s one of those programs that I never get bored with. I’ve done posts on it before, but essentially it’s an 8-week program, 4 days a week, that… Continue reading Reality check
Thanksgiving is over and soon it will be Christmas and a new year. Wow, the year both flew by and yet felt like it lasted 30 years, am I right? It’s holiday season and I’m kinda feeling like the Grinch. Over the last couple of months, I just haven’t felt like myself. I blame menopause,… Continue reading The new me
When I look back at my social media posts and blog posts from 2020, I was on the top of my game, both physically and mentally, even though we were in the midst of a crazy pandemic. I was killing my workouts, I was eating healthy, and I was goal-focused. I had a group of… Continue reading 2021 vs 2020
It’s been a bit since I last posted something, but it seems like lately it’s hard to really focus on anything. I’m basically just trying to keep my head above water and get through a daily routine. This menopause stuff seems to be kicking my butt. And add a continuing pandemic on top of that… Continue reading Mental health break
A few days ago, I talked about how things are for me now that I’m 55. My body has gone through so many changes over the last several years. I’ve talked about the weight gain, hot flashes and night sweats. Another thing that I haven’t talked about is my change in diet. For many years,… Continue reading My current diet
Last week our family went on a vacation to Virginia Beach and this week I’ve spent much of the time thinking about how much I want to go back on vacation. We had a wonderful time. It was great to get away with our adult children and their spouses. We relaxed on the beach and… Continue reading This is 55.
Good morning! I hope you’ve been enjoying your long weekend. Mine has been great! I watched some college football and ate too many unhealthy snacks on Saturday, had brunch yesterday with the family and ate way too much food, enjoyed the nice weather in the backyard with my husband, drank some cocktails and learned how… Continue reading Current workout program
Good morning, readers! It’s been a quiet, relaxing Sunday morning. I slept in until 7:00 a.m., enjoyed a cup of coffee while reading a book. I then baked some muffins, watched an episode of a new series on Netflix, The Chair (highly recommend!) and went outside with the dogs for a bit because it looks… Continue reading Not later, not someday, NOW
Please excuse my long absence, but let me assure you that everything is fine. Well, sort of. The last time I blogged, I was getting to ready to have surgery and our youngest daughter was going to have surgery as well. Also during that time, my employer was asking everyone to come back to work… Continue reading Everything’s fine.
