It’s a brutally cold day here in Northern Wisconsin. -20 F on our deck thermometer this morning. I think some days were just set up for us to slow down and do a bit of reflection on where we have come from and where we are going on our wellness journeys.
January 23, 2018 is when it all starting clicking for me for whatever reason. I was turning 62. I’m not sure if it was just an accumulation of things, or, that I was uncomfortable enough in my own skin. It could even have been that I had just been forced to dig down deep for strength and withstand some personal turmoil related to events outside of my control. Somehow, the earth seemed to shift. I found myself stronger after my struggles and after having been exposed to some new ways of thinking. New ways of letting go. I finally found myself.
I’m stronger now. Comfortable. Carving out my own path forward. Losing 100# has been life changing and I’m still adjusting with the new version of myself. I am still trying to figure out what size clothing really fits me and I am amazed at what my refurbished body can do.
Still plotting my path forward. I have a few new fitness goals and I’ve made some tweaks to my weight loss goal. It’s like finding that rhythm that you can just settle into and run with forever.
Have a conversation with yourself this week about your wellness journey. Get a visual on what goal you are going to crush next. Then, don’t lose sight of it as you head in to the craziness of the week ahead. Let the rest go. It doesn’t matter. You are what matters.
