What doesn’t kill you makes you stronger….I needed to hear this message at one point this morning! When I stepped outside for my morning walk, the air was thick with high humidity and it was not inviting at all. Another plus to walking in the mornings here is a twenty degree difference….75 to 95….with humidity like this though, the 75 isn’t really that enjoyable.
I was struggling throughout the walk and that little devil on one shoulder kept telling me it was not worth it and that I would just go back to my unhealthy ways, so why bother. It was at that point another walker went by me with Kelly’s message booming from her headphones. Just what I needed to persevere and go forward! Kelly actually hails from my home, Midland, TX….we grow them tough out in West Texas! Thanks Kelly!
I joined my friend, Kerry, for lunch today and she introduced me to a low carb dish at her favorite Thai restaurant. We split the delicious Pad wen sen and a sushi plate…it was excellent and filling! She also taught me a lot about healthy eating and armed me with material to come home and devise a new meal plan.
I am finding that there is so much involved with metabolism, and it just isn’t easy…when you factor in age, exercise, menopause, hormones, etc., there are just no easy answers to getting things going again. But I am not discouraged. I am going to study what she gave me and plow forward with the intention of turning my health around. I will report back to you what I learn.
Have a wonderful Wednesday, ladies! Thanks for all of your encouragement…I really do feel better each day!

my hair, I just cannot wash it every day. This works great and keeps this doable!
