Four years ago I decided to make a conscious effort to change my overall health and fitness (and blog about it).
It started with a killer determination to shed pounds and be oh-so-lithe. It was all about exercise plans, workouts, DietBets, and the like. That kinda worked for a while, but ultimately, it all turned into getting outside and doing what I love regardless of my weight.
I took up running for a bit – despite being 200+ lbs – and that took a toll on my knees. I spent six weeks of 2017 dedicated to training for another great run season when my knees protested rather wildly, and I then spent the next six months nursing my hips, knees, feet and everything connecting them in between.
Talk about a huge bummer. It was physical and even more so, psychological. Finding (making?) joy became difficult.
And here we are – 2018. I didn’t blog a thing in 2017. Everything hurt my heart. This year it’s time to move, no matter how slowly, towards balance, discipline and strength, with a sprinkling of fresh air and music.
Let’s kick it back. #hey2018
