It's been too long. Do I sound like I am repeating myself every few weeks, months, YEARS? Perhaps. I took a long hiatus from blogging. It's fun, sort of. But it's stressful and a LOT of work. I admire those people out there who are able to produce something interesting & good as frequently as they do.
Have there been a lot of changes? Do I have a millions reasons as to why I am so NOT good at keeping up with this blog-thing? No, not really. And then, yes. There's always something, or a lot of things. Nothing which though I think is interesting enough to publish online.
One BIG change for me (and hubby). Which is exercising. Last November (2011), I started working with a personal trainer at my gym. One hour, once a week. There have been a good handful or two of weeks in which I did NOT do my training, but it was usually because I was out of town or feeling pretty ill.
When I look at myself in the mirror, I don't feel like I see much of a difference. But if I am honest, I can feel it. I am much stronger. Faster. Better balance. Better moods. More stamina. Of course the training is supplemented with going to the gym on my own - doing cardio stuff, usually. Definitely more walks, movement and activity. It feels like a slog, most of the time. Trying to get my "steps" in for the day. Not allowing myself to sit for so long that I go into metabolic shutdown. Eating more healthily. Come to think of it; it's really been a bunch of little changes that are bringing about big RESULTS.
That's a positive note to end this entry on.
I'll be back! Sooner than later!
