I need to step it UP!

I'm trying to get on the wagon, again. I'm focusing on eating healthy, homemade meals.  And get back into the walking thing. 
I realized today I haven't logged into My Fitness Pal since last September. 

As I'm feeling good in my recovery I'm going to jump my step goal from 4000 to 7000 on Fitbit. I'm setting the additional goal of logging all that I eat. And logging a walk in both My Fitness Pal and Charity Miles no less than 5 days a week. I am setting the longer goal of meeting 10,000 steps a daily goal by July 1st. 

It is now out in black and white on the never to go away inter webs. I will be accountable. 

My username on both apps mentioned is kymhretz so won't you join me?

Surviving Recovery

I a little less than two weeks ago I had a hysterectomy. This was a very welcome thing, it took hoops to go through for the insurance and I'm so very glad it's behind me. I have no doubt my quality of life will be 100% better once I've fully recovered.

I've been making a good effort to make healthy food choices, with appropriate serving sizes.  I am not doing much other than knitting in the way of excersise. I've walked a bit but I'm worried about ripping stitches so I go slow and not too far from home.  

I go for my two week check up tomorrow and hope to have all my restrictions removed.  Probably wishful thinking.

A time to Reflect and Reinvent

Life is full of changes. I see them daily in my personal world and those around me. Small changes, big changes, unexpected changes and greatly anticipated changes.

I've spent a fair amount of time reflecting on myself and where changes would best be suited. Certainly my Heath would benefit from change. I've decided that this is the most important place to focus my immediate changes. But I also need to adjust in other areas.

I'm hoping to use this space to hold myself accountable, Facing the challenges of eating healthy, appropriate quantities of food. Making a genuine effort to exercise. To find a balance in my life that keeps me and my family living healthy and happy.

I also need to revamp my household freeing life of clutter and excess of things. I really need to take the time to enjoy my beautiful home and gardens in a way that I've neglected the last few years.

I'm also going to be more present in the daily planning and care of my family. I'm going to cease day not just survive it.

It's Mother's Day and I am very proud to have such lovely, intelligent kids, all of whom are adults living their own exciting lives. Today, I am thankful they always think of me and make time to show me they care, each in their own individual way.

I've been blessed in my life and I plan to savor it and make it last as long as possible!

Here's to the Good Life!
