Well, I turned 50 a couple of weeks ago. It took me a little while to get around to writing this blog. I have scattered thoughts, so it might be all over the place.
Saturday I had a hair appointment with a new hairdresser. I told her I just turned 50 and needed something new. She said that I needed a sassy haircut. So she cut it short. Haven't had it this short in a long time, and dyed it blond. Now I can see if its true that Blonds have more fun. Anyway I have had very positive remarks. People at work says it makes me look much younger, and others say its a sexy look. Either way it has sparked a spark that has been out for a while.
So today, I actually styled my hair and wore makeup. Tonight I will get my gear together and go to the gym tomorrow. My plan is to go to the gym 4 days a week for 30 minutes walking in the pool. I hope to work up to 90 minutes, or 30 plus water aerobics. Right now I don't think my knees could handle the aerobics. I have been working on my eating lately, but will be more strict with the calories. I reset my goals and changed my number of calories per day. We will have to see where this leads me. If I don't take control now, It will be too late.
I am finding myself lately, not going to events because I don't want to sit in a corner and watch, and that's about all I am able to do now. So this is important to get under control. I can't miss out on any more of what life has to offer.
Thanks for reading my blog, thank you for my friends who have stood by me for years as I have tried to tackle the beast.
