My hair is beginning to sprout new hair. In a couple of weeks I might well look like a mad scientist. The blond hairs are really long and the darker hair is simply fuzz. It will be interesting to see what I end up with.
I kicked it up a notch at the gym today. My legs are tight from running yesterday, but in a good way. I am really going to focus on cardio and core. I can toss in free weights for the upper body and the leg press for the lower body. I am also putting lunges back into the mix.
I did a few this morning, though it is debatable if they were lunges as I didn’t make it all the way down. Felt a bit like the Tin Man while doing them.
Still it is back to basics and build from there.
It feels so wintery outside today. The beautiful sunshine is very deceiving. I pranced out in my short pants and felt the sting of cold on my bare legs. Still, I warm up fast and there really is something very exhilarating about a crisp Autumn morning.
The other challenge I am throwing down for myself is a specific diet, no wine or beer (can’t do this during radiation anyway) and really healthy choices. I figure since I am doing NaNoWriMo (unofficially), I will just be dedicated this month to writing and wellness.
I have been a hermit before and I shall do so for the next six weeks.
Also, Christmas is creeping up rather quickly so I will save a few dollars that will later be spent on family and friends. My daughter and I are looking at going to Vegas for a few days just before Christmas to unwind.
This year has gone by quickly. Not quite how I anticipated the year to unfold when first it began. Still, I’ve developed an even deeper love for this life. I’ve much I want to see, much I want to experience, much I want to achieve. Best to get to it.
I will make the things happen that I have worked so hard for. Just going to dive into this life and enjoy it.
I heard a comment at the gym this morning that you have likely all heard.
“You never know when you’re numbers going to up, so make the most of each day.”
I smiled at the notion. Gonna do just that.
