Today’s post may make more sense if you read yesterday’s, but you could live dangerously and just go for it.
First, I’d like to take a moment of silence in honor and recognition of friends. I’ve got someone in particular in mind, but we can include friends in general. In fact, I think that’s a tremendous idea.
One of the great things that friends do for us is to point out the obvious in a kind, loving and gracious manner. That’s what makes them friends as opposed to less favorable people in our lives.
I’m talking about the kinds of things that should be glaringly obvious to us, but we miss…because we are so close to the problem (and self-absorbed).
My friend pointed out that it seemed that if I focused on my health, the rest seemed to fall into place. Ummm…duh, Kelly. She’s right, of course. That makes total sense now (it always made sense, I just missed it).
Being healthy gave me the focus and energy to live the rest of my life more fully – and intentionally.
Thank you friend.
Health moves to the top of the list!
Here’s an update of what I accomplished yesterday. My focus was the kitchen because it’s hard to eat healthy food when you can’t find anything and avoid the kitchen because it’s a disaster.
The walking – not so much. We had rain, a lot of rain. I can’t do laps in the house because we live in a manufactured home. I could walk from one end to the other repeatedly – nope, can’t do that. Remember, the daughter moving back in thing? It would be more of an obstacle course workout. All my stuff from the “guest” room and all her stuff from her apartment is piled in the hallway…and living room…and studio/classroom. We’re working on it, but it’s still there.
Today, I shall walk! My goal is to work back up to 10,000 steps a day.
Grateful for yesterday and excited for today! Yea!

Looking good. Being diabetic is not fun. Had it since we moved to Palacios. Try to do it the right way do you don’t have to take shots.
Hoping we caught it in time. Lab tests in the a.m.
