Last thoughts of 2018

I started 2018 miserably sick, by my birthday in March it was time to take charge by making my health and well being a priority. Showing up for myself has been a game changer. I've never been healthier or more strong. Shedding 52 pounds was quite the feat after struggling for years to even lose a pound. More proudly, I quit Diet Coke.

Our travels have taken me to four countries, a dozen states and countless cities: US (AZ, CA, CO, MA, RI, CT, VT, NH, NJ, MS, LA & FL. Mexico (Tijuana, Los Cabos, La Paz, Cabo Plumo, Loreto), Costa Rica (San Jose, La Fortuna, Santa Teresa and Jaco) and England (London).

I have fallen HARD for hockey, but also traveled for my first love of baseball and my second, football. Saw so many great concerts and made wonderful memories with friends and family near and far.

I've watched my family take on new challenges and exceed their goals. I couldn't be more proud!

This year we celebrated 21 years together. It's been an amazing adventure. I'm so lucky to have him by my side.

After a run of some really tough years; this one has been so good, I don't want to let it go. Let's hope it's just beginning.

May 2019 be the year to thrive.

So glad to hear about your amazing 2018! Dropping 52lbs is an amazing feat and you should be proud! I often think about losing some weight but I have realized that doing so would probably be the single most difficult thing I've ever tried to do. Honestly, I don't know that I'm up for it.

21yrs - congrats there too. That is a remarkable number!

Here's to hoping your 2019 exceeds your 2018...cheers!!

Apologies for the belated reply. Happy new year and thank you both for being loyal readers. I always appreciate the kind words.

Jay, small changes make a big impact. Start changing a few habits and go from there. I don't recommend a complete overhaul all at once. Makes it too hard to sustain. At least, in my experience.
