First Day

Actually I'm on the 3rd day at this point.  The picture I sent in the previous post from when I was in Las Vegas is my Before picture.  Let's just say it was a bit of an awakening.  I don't see myself that way.  So, now that my back is not hurting so much I'm on a major makeover.  I'm back to walking more as it is cooling down a bit here.  I've added some more supplements suggested by my doctor. 

And, let's talk about my doctor's appointment.  I'm in better shape than I thought in general.  Just a bit of arthritis in my back which is fixable to some degree, my cholesterol is below 200, osteoporosis is just barely starting to register.  I do have a nodule in my throat area to have checked out, and basically just do weight bearing exercises to get my core strong for my back and my bones.  Hense, the first days of the rest of my life.

Financially I'm going to really, really tighten up so I can see an end to my work life and a start to retirement.  I will continue to weed out stuff and get rid of things.  That has been going well, but I'm at a bit of a slow point where I've gotten rid of most things that I knew I was ready to let go.  Time to get tougher with this.  I'm cooking more at home for health and financial reasons.  It is just time to start attending to the many details that life had gotten in the way of handling up to this point.

So, I may or may not post 'in transition' pictures.  However, it is good to remember how to post via email for the times I'm on my phone and want to just post a quick picture.

  2. Good for you. Back problems are really hard to deal with and I sure am glad to hear you are feeling better. It's amazing how much cheaper it is to cook at home. We've been doing more of that also. My problem is I don't fix the healthy meals we should be having. Keep it up.
