I apologize for neglecting my blog. Several of my gentle readers have reminded me that I have been remiss.
So here’s the quick update: I survived the Thanksgiving challenge in fine fashion. I had a wonderful Thanksgiving dinner about noon with the La Salette priests and brothers here in St. Louis. I tasted everything, in moderation. And when I got up from the table, for the first time in many years, I did NOT feel like a stuffed turkey!
The following Monday’s weigh-in showed a loss of 2 lbs. (only!) But after all it was still a loss – and that’s why I say I survived the Thanksgiving challenge. (My official weight is 326.7.)
This week I’ve tried embraced my “athletic self.” I’ve signed up with the “YPF” program (Y Personal Fitness) at the Carondelete YMCA, which means I’ve committed to getting to the gym at least 3 days a week for the next 12 weeks. I have to make getting to the gym a part of my regular routine, a part of my life from now on. If I am to stay healthy, I have come to realize I simply must get exercise; and the only way that’s going to happen is if I make it a priority.
So this week I’ve already been to the gym Tuesday, Wednesday and today, Thursday. I am hopeful to get there a couple of more times before the week runs out.Things are going well. I feel good. I’m working hard. And I really do have lots more to tell you. But it’s bed time and I am weary. God bless! Good night!
