I haven’t been updating a whole lot over the last few weeks because I hadn’t been feeling that inspired. I am happy to report that now I am feeling just wonderful over all.
My arm aside, the rest of me feels great! I finally gave in and joined a gym recently, and this is my second week going. I am aiming to go a min of 4 days a week, hoping for 5 and so far have done the min of 4. I am only doing cardio right now, but it feels so good! Sometimes it is hard to get going in the morning, but once I am there I am good. There have been a few times – like today- where I was half way through my work out and I was tired enough I wanted to quit! But, I didn’t. I have all ready lost about 3 lbs and frankly my mind and body feel wonderful.
It has given me enough of a pick me up that I have been doing things around the house that have been neglected since my arm decided to go on strike. The art project I did in my last post probably wou,ld not have gotten done if I wasn’t feeling so happy and I am excited to do more.
Being out of work for as long as I have been off, not seeing my work friends and having regular social interaction – in person- has really taken it’s tole on me. Not only has it sucked out my energy, but it also sucked out my creativity, I have had a terrible time writing over the last month.
Luckily I feel like i am getting back to my old self, if not a new and improved old self and I am even feeling the inspiration to write again. So exciting!
Yesterday I went and saw my hair dresser extraordinare and she took my hair to a light brown and put in golden blonde highlights. I am working my way back to my natural color and I solemnly swear to never dye it brown again. No offense to my brunette readers, I think brown hair is beautiful, it is just soooo is not me. ;o)
It’s a little overcast here today, but since I am home from the gym and freshly showered, I think I might just stay in the rest of the day, maybe do a little writing and work on some of my art projects.
Since it is Thanksgiving week, it is only appropriate to think about the things I am thankful for.
- my health
- my mother
- my friends
- my father
- my family
- my new church
- my renewed relationship with God
- my happiness
