Third of 2017 Gone

A third of 2017 has passed, four months. We’ve made our resolutions on January 1st or at least promises to do better in a brand new year. What have you done with your four months so far? Kept going to the gym or working out? Finally took that class you’ve always wanted? Bowling with friends each week? Time and place get away from everyone but making time for you is absolutely vital for a healthy life. If you backtrack, that’s ok–just means you’re human. What do you do? You dust yourself off, get back on  your feet and face forward.

Myself, I vowed to move on with my life somewhere new, get back into my ‘Simple Healthy Fresh’ lifestyle and get healthier. So far, so good: I’ve moved to a new location, giving myself time to grieve the past, eating healthier foods, exercising each day. I’m not ready to dive head-first into society in my new town, but i’ve peeked out of my apartment a few times and enjoyed the beauty. I’m eating healthier, making better food choices (and remembering how much I enjoy healthy food). I’m slowly getting back into my former exercises (low-impact weights, exercycle, etc) and losing weight.

  1. Brick, I am so sorry about your marriage not working out. Should have told you much sooner but haven’t been on facebook all that much..due to eye problems here..Also looked up Alport syndrome as I wasn’t sure what it was and pertained to..I’m so sorry again that something like this has hit you.. When Den had his flesheating bacteria back in 2010 his kidneys were failing big time on him before they discovered the MAIN REASON…which was eating away at him as they operated right before their eyes. He’s so lucky that it somewhere, somehow hit a wall it couldn’t penetrate and they got at that surgery all they could out, hoping they wouldn’t have to go back in again.. They did not have to operate again so he lucked out and they got it ALL on first no should say 2nd surgery as they did 2 surgeries at same time. colonoscopy was the first so he’d be able to get dialysis for kidneys, 2nd was to get the monster that had invaded his body.
    So in a way I kinda know what you are dealing with and then again I do not..I saw things on the causes/concerns of Alport that could even relate to Den today..He meets with a doctor of Nephrology June 28th here in town regarding the changes in kidney levels plus his hypertension which is out of control & his primary thinks he needs to be seen by specialist.. Evidently the Nephrologist at the VA has retired so he is being sent to Sanford which was his choice of places to go. I can’t even pronounce the word!
    Hang in there..I have extra pounds if you ever need any..honest!! Sounds iike you are making peace with some things and looking forward to a new life in new ALL THE MORE POWER TO YOU!! I’m not the best at writing as I keep making changes to things I jot down to send or repeat..oh so good at repeating..thats for sure! Take care my friend, get out and meed new people, that would be good…i’ll be thinking of you hoping that is ok..take care my friend..

    1. Thank you Laurie, your words are greatly appreciated. You have to be the sweetest person I know! Sorry to hear all the issues affecting you and your husband.
