I am lifting weights this morning and it feels good. It has been over three weeks since being sick with a nasty summer cold and then stung by a freaking bee. Today I am back on track and pushing through a full set of exercises.
One of the toughest things to do is building up enough self motivation to get back on track, but today is the day. Woo Hoo!
I have decided that exercise, diet and dealing with type II diabetes are things that I must deal with each and every day. I love keeping a log book to track my efforts but am finding that writing about such things each day on a blog can get both tiresome and repetitive. If is for these reason that I am choosing to write more about other things in my life because I actually enjoy writing about them rather then writing content that I feel I have a commitment to writing.
Let me get back to the theme of my blog that being how I have decided to start living a life of more simplicity and less stress once I turned 50 years old. Although life will continue to throw challenges and sometimes curve balls my way I am learning to lesson the emotions attached to certain situations and find solutions to solve problems then move on.
Let me write about those simple things that bring me such joy whether it is a walk in nature ore the sparkling eyes of a grandchild. It is that time of life to take the time to smell the flowers growing in the meadow below me, it is a time to breath.
Even those things which are financial in nature which present themselves as an energy force in my life need to be celebrated when managed properly. A home filled with laughter is so much better than a home filled with things. A minimalist lifestyle in itself is it’s own reward and life as life can be measured through a collection of memories of time well spent with family, friends and loved one’s rather than measured in the type of car I am driving or the size of my house. It is these things and much more that I find great pleasure in writing about and I will try to seize every opportunity to put these moments into words.
