43 Weeks to Health and Fitness

It is forty-three weeks since I decided to get on my fitness journey.

I am rather disappointed that I got sidelined for a few weeks by a miserable flu bug and the ongoing issues that it caused, but I do have a few reasons to celebrate.

  • I do finally appear to be on the mend, although my voice is still hit and miss and I am still dealing with a couple of minor issues.
  • As mentioned previously, I managed to lose a few pounds. 😁
  • I made it through the past few weeks without having to resort to a visit to a health clinic or emergency room. That is definitely a bonus with how crowded they are these days with those suffering from a variety of viruses and bacterial infections. Not places I want to be for sure!
  • Other than the first few days, I managed to be up, dressed and groomed every day – and I managed to handle meals, dishes, laundry, and general housekeeping.
  • I finished reading David Goggins book “Can’t Hurt me” and I am ready to start his second book “Never Finished”.
  • And finally… Yesterday, I got back into my workout routine! πŸ™ŒπŸ™ŒπŸ™Œ. I am not where I was before I got sick, but I am in way better shape than I thought I would be! I can dance for about half an hour in the morning and lift lighter weights for fifteen minutes or so in the evenings. It is a (re)start.
  • It feels so great to get back on track! My year one to a fit and healthy lifestyle wraps up on February 13th and I am excited about regaining any progress I lost AND ending the year with a strong finish. I have accomplished so much, health and fitness wise, that I can’t even imagine what I can accomplish in year two.
Molly is getting super excited about heading out for our daily walks soon.
Watching her friends go by… πŸ˜”

That’s it for today. Take care and have a great day! πŸ’žπŸŒž

  1. I’m glad that you are still having so much success, Anne Marie! Wonderful news. Have a blessed Christmas, my friend. ❀️ Yes, it’s a little early I guess.

  2. My dog was a horse’s ass tonight! Glad you guys made it this far without freezing anything vital off your vehicle. Have a good rest of your trip tomorrow! πŸŒžπŸ’ž


  3. Thank you, Mags. I am not totally there yet but going in the right direction – finally! Molly is looking great but she’s a challenge for sure. We are keeping son Dan’s dogs for four days after Christmas while they are in the city. (They stay at a hotel with a waterpark etc for the kids). Hopefully, Molly will be reasonably manageable with Bacardi and Cornelius. 🀞 Have a great day, Mags!
