I was reading the Runs for Cookies post today and remembered how much I used to love reading blogs. Back it their heyday, it was very fun and inspiring to read fellow bloggers who had similar interests as me, health and fitness, and of course, weight loss.
Now that I'm retired (since December 2020), I should have all the time in the world to write blog posts. Right? Wrong! The first eight months of 2021 was crazy busy. I unexpectedly went into the house remodeling mode.
After working from home for nine months in 2020, and then retiring, I couldn't stand looking at all the stuff in my home that needed to be painted, repaired, or replaced. Including 25-year old toilets and bathroom vanities and removing the hardwood floor throughout the house and replacing it, just to mention a few things. It all started with one light fixture replacement that made everything else in the house look old and outdated. The house was in disrepair and needed some loving attention (not to mention a lot of money).
Dealing with numerous contractors caused a lot of anxiety and frustration. It's 95% complete and I'm so happy! It was a nightmare, and one that I hope to never repeat in my lifetime (since I'm 66 I'm pretty sure that was it).
Now it's time to focus on I what I tried to do when I started this blog in 2009. Health. I'm 66 and currently a good 50+ pounds overweight. For those of you that want to do the math, I weigh 197 and have a goal of 145. Okay, that's technically 52 pounds but I like the sound of 50, plus I'd be thrilled with 147.
In an effort to not make this a ridiculously long and drawn out posts, I'll follow up tomorrow and write about my newest plan to get healthy. It's nothing new, well, not exactly, but kind of. LOL!
