one little word: checking in


My one little word for this year is ‘healthy’. At first I picked ‘heal’, but then decided to aim higher, to go beyond healing, to robust health.

With a third of the year past, I thought it time to touch base. And I’m happy to report that I’m so much healthier than I was on New Year’s Day, when J broke up with me for the second time.

  • I’m at a good weight for my height (50lb less than I was in Feb 2011*).
  • I’m exercising every day.
  • Since forgiving J, our relationship is easy and mutually supportive.
  • After a 20 year hiatus, I recently rejoined Mensa and am enjoying socializing with new people. Not that I’ve abandoned my existing friendships. Me and my girls are still hanging out :-)
  • I’ve had nearly all my annual medical checkups, and everything’s looking good. My dermatologist kindly removed a suspicious growth from my back yesterday, and I’m waiting for the biopsy results, but am not concerned.
  • I’m meditating every day. Good for mental health.
  • And flossing every day. Good for oral health.
  • I feel happy nearly all the time, which feels, shall we say, awesome?

So yeah … I’m pretty content. Healthy is good.

I hope you’re feeling it too.

*I stopped eating grains.

    I’m glad you’re feeling great, but can I just say that are also looking smokin’ hot!

  3. Look at you, you gorgeous girl. I like that you converted your “word” to health, especially robust health! I’ve spent the last year recovering, full of gratitude for life. My anniversary is up, and it’s now time to embrace the same idea – robust health, happiness and healing of the mind.

    So thank you for this post!

    Also – wow. 50 lbs! That’s amazing. Sugars and grains are my drug – and part of my plan is to reduce the grains and eliminate the sugars. I don’t want to necessaraily lose weight, but I do want to gain my fitness back and if I’m not achey from sugar I’m a happier person.

  4. Yeah Hashi!
