That's the wonderful thing about getting in shape. Every thing is freaking easier, whether it be physical, spiritual or emotional.
OK. I'm down another 8 inches body wide and everybody sees it. Total 49 inches lost and I'm stopping traffic. I'm in the mix of life, and my head is getting really big from the attention.
Please forgive me. However..........
I've learned in the last 2 weeks that my father is falling fast. Although I won't get specific here, I've been informed he has been diagnosed with 2 very serious diseases that are unrelated, at the same time. Both are highly fatal, and his survival is limited in time and statistics. My father has been my hero, which makes this traumtic for me.
Secondly, I made a leap of faith with a boyfriend who has recently been more persistent in pursuing a relationship of permanacy, which finally, would be good for me at this place in my life. I have some fears about it, but I'm just gonna take it one day at a time.
I would feel completely alone, except I have the most awesome friends and support group to lift me up.
I'm in rehearsal for a first time, Casa Salsa Salsera performance piece. The comraderie with the ladies' involved is unprecedented, and provides a foundational level of support that cannot be properly verbalized. Also, my trainer Will Burkland, is a constant source of positive motivation.
My diet hasn't changed at all. I take at least 5 meals a day that include low-fat protein, greens and complex carbs. Sometimes I eat berries. Every once in a while I cheat at parties, but never more than 2 or 3 bites. Just a taste. Diet cheating is rare for me because I'm loving the results.
Basically, a healthy lifestyle, in my experince, can only bring better performance to everyday life.
