It's my birthday today and I get to be 50!! Can you even believe it? I can't! Time sure flies!!
This morning my Hubby asked me if I feel 50 and I said, "You know, I don't! I feel the best I've ever felt in my entire life!!"
This whole weight loss and fitness journey is so much more than just losing weight and getting a skinny body. For me, this journey has opened doors that I thought would NEVER open. I feel like I can do it all!! The doors are wide open!! I guess a lot of people feel this way after graduating from high school or college. I never had that feeling that I could do whatever I wanted or that I...could have it all. Never felt good enough or worthy enough to even try.
Today I feel that I can do whatever I want. Well I do have some limitations, so I can't really do all that I want, but I can sure go through the appropriate open doors to things that are unknown to me today. I can walk through and see what there is for me. How exciting is that?
And I don't know what's happened lately, but not only do I have my health and fitness plan in motion and things are working....but because of all of the organizational skills and dedication that I needed to get that part of my life in order, these same skills are helping me get organized and focused for the things I've always wanted to do.
We are having a big birthday party tonight (I got a new camera and I'm hoping that I will (remember) to take pictures and then learn how to get them on my computer...I know....I can't even turn our TV on, but you know what....I'm going to learn to do this) Anyway, I have asked my guests to not bring me gifts (I just hate the Over the Hill gag stuff). Instead of wasting money on that, I asked them to bring things for the Portland Rescue Mission. So I'm hoping we will have a truck load of stuff to Bless them with. How fun is that?
Sorry I got off of my point...not only did I help with this event, but I've also, kept my house cleaned, laundry is done, my legs are shaved........come on ladies, you know when you're really busy that does not get done...am I the only one? Oh and my check book is in order, the bills are paid plus I'm taking two classes right now that have home work and on and on.......And I'm doing all of this in a very timely and calm manner...All because I took the time back in 2010 to focus on my health...and look what I've learned. I am so capable! It's amazing what good health brings!! I'm thinking of the energy I have, clarity of mind, hope for the future.....So exciting!!!
Of course, I'm not taking all the credit for this. I have relied so much on the Lord and His strength through this whole process and I know without Him and my very supportive family and friends, I would not be where I am today. I am soooo grateful!! THANK YOU...THANK YOU...THANK YOU!!!!
So Friends, celebrate with me today, I am almost a senior...got my first AARP letter in the mail...It made me laugh! Can't wait for my discounts!!!!
Are you getting so much more from your health and fitness plan?
