Just wanted to give an update on how things are going in my life. With the warmer weather here, I am getting back into running outdoors and it feels great! Haven’t been able to go too far yet but I am intending to get back to my 7 1/2 to 8 1/2 mile run hopefully by mid-June. I’ll also be signing up for a few races this running season also. Did one about four years ago and loved it. Now that I’ve lost 17 lbs. so far and have about 10 to go, I have a lot more confidence. I’ve been studying fitness models’ sites and reading a lot of fitness motivation. Need to work on my sagging abs, but at almost 50 years old I guess I have to be thankful for what I can make of them.
As for the gluten-free, I’ve gone back to eating regular pizza – Home Run Inn’s Ultra Thin Frozen Pizza doesn’t seem to give me any problems. I’m still staying away from anything else bread-y. As for lactose-free, still nothing with that. No High-Fructose for me or my family. Regardless of what the media portrays it as, I still believe it is not good for you. I’m doing the as-close-to-natural-as-possible make-up, Lemongrass Spa Products. Wonderful items. Look them up, if you are interested. As for weight-training, I’m doing well in that category also. Lifting four days a week and finally seeing some definite results. It’s pretty sweet.
As for the Asperger’s. I have come to a peaceful place and an understanding of this is who I am. I am happier now. More content. To finally understand why I am the way that I am is enlightening. I now feel that I can spend my energy and time on doing the things that need to get done, like getting into shape finally. And for reading and writing: I am enjoying some very good books; thrillers mostly and some romance. Writing is going well. Still need to send off for some magazine samples. Just need to find the right ones to spend the money on. I have so many stories going on at ones that at times I am a bit overwhelmed. But that could be part of the Asperger’s.
Gardening season is fast approaching. Will be planting again this year after letting the ground sit and rest last summer. Now comes the fun part of deciding what to grow. We’ll be getting plants so they’ll be easier to grow. Hopefully the weather this summer will be a good mix of rain and sun. Love fresh tomatoes. Okay, and I’ll be getting my hair cut soon also. Trying to decide on a new style, though. Something different to celebrate my approaching 50’th. Will be coloring it red again. Love that color. Not a bright red, but a subtle shade, but definitely red.
Okay, that is what’s going on my end of the world this beautiful May day. Blessings and love to all. If you have any suggestions for any of the above you’d like to share: gardening tips, favorite books, etc. please let me know. Til next time.
