(A Be Active Update)
Here we are, almost a quarter into 2016. Our house marked a milestone with Bushboy’s 16th birthday. Spring has arrived in its slow, meandering west coast style. And I am striving to remember to be active in my life.
I’m walking more, although the not always with Chika. He can’t get in and out of the truck easily anymore nor can he walk as far. It’s a hard adjustment, to go for a hike without him. We still walk the neighbourhood and he is happy with that.
I have started swimming laps at the pool once a week. I swam competitively as a school kid, and even completed my Bronze Medallion and Bronze Cross as a teenager. I love to swim and am happy to be pushing myself to do this.
I still feel frustrated at times. My sciatica gets more irritating as I move more. I have not lost any weight yet this year (although I also haven’t gained more) which disappoints me more than it probably should, but I was the same weight for 10 years and it has been hard to accept this change in my body.
Still on my action hit list? Office paperwork and systems. Major craft room clean out. Play loud music and dance more.
