The Grind of 2017 and the promise for 2018!

Going back to the beginning of why I started this challenge in the first place is bitter sweet for me. When my Grandmother passed away it was one of the hardest life experiences I have ever had to deal with to date. It put me in this unfamiliar place of pain, the feeling of helplessness, anxiety, insomnia, and a all over feeling of sadness that I just couldn't seem to shake. When I researched dealing with a  death of a loved one there were all sorts of suggestions, from therapy, meds, time.  One morning after a rough night and waking up not being able to breathe I decided that I had to make  change. I put on my walking gear and I have never looked back..This was kind of like prescribing myself medicine, but instead of taking  pills I decided to work out all of my issues through exercise and meditation. I would walk everyday for one hour no matter what. I cleared my mornings and started. No exceptions. No excuses. I was invested and determined and that's a powerful combination.  All of my anxiety slowly disappeared and slowly I became sane again Every morning for the last 209 days, give or take a day, due to Hurricanes, traveling to bury my Grandmother, or the latest which is a nasty, nasty cold  I have only missed about 10 days total.,
I have so many more goals for this 2018 year to push myself even further. To push this 50 year old body to its top potential: Mentally, Spiritually and Physically.

During  this journey I have lost about 18 - 20 pounds  regained my confidence and pulled though a really tough time. All in all I would say its a win, win situation.

Was it easy ? No!!!  but so, so worth every step...
Here is to many more goals to be met in 2018 including going back to regular blog post.. Which is over due...
