Although I’m marking this complete, it will be an ongoing process, a life-long goal (whether I document it online or not). smile2 days ago

This is something I hope to work on for the rest of my life. I tend to let things go at times such as eating more junk food, drinking less water and exercising less but then after a while I improve. I take much better care of myself in general now than I did when I set this goal so Im going to mark it as done. 4 weeks ago
During the next 7 days, I will:
Make a dentist appointment
Drink 4 glasses of water a day
Get at least 6K steps each day
These are baby steps, and certainly not the levels I aspire to, but attainable goals for the next week. File under..you have to start somewhere! 4 weeks ago
I’m so happy the site is online again – I’ve missed all of you so much. I found a few of my friends on Twitter and Facebook – but it’s just not the same as 43T.
So happy to see the site back! 2 months ago
Sometimes life is full of wonders.
So many wonderful people here have been cheering me on and helping me get along.
And today, an invitation turned up in my email – an invitation to Desmond Tutu’s forgiveness project.
I just joined and it looks like so thing that could really help.

I logged in this morning to find the wonderful cheer “bombings” by the wonderful teoae and our fabulous rat – thank you so much for the smile you brought me.
And I just had to cheer everyone back :)
My plan includes writing you all back as soon as possible – and really taking better care of myself.
Something cracked off inside and I feel the need to take better care of myself. Be kinder and more gentle to myself.
Starting by responding to my body’s signals straight when my body signals – no more “I’ll just finish that and then …” and a my beloved stairs.
It’s a tiny new start and I’ll be back soon! 2 months ago
Thank you all so much for your lovely thoughts and messages.
I’m so thankful for all the kind wishes and words – and I’m slowly getting better every day.
Planning to return soon – so many cheers to return!
Thank you everyone again! 2 months ago
I’ve got to take a small break from 43T and the cheering.
There’s been a terrible accident and I’m still shaken. Me, my family and friends are unharmed, but it’s been a challenging experience.
I’ll be back. 3 months ago
that I’ve been doing a better job lately of packing & taking a “cool box” (actually a “refrigerator-type” lunch sack) with me, so that I’ll have tasty, filling, & healthy options available, especially when I have to work long days &/or late hours. smile4 months ago

Been eating healthier. Juicing more. Still not taking time to exercise as much as I enjoy. Physical activity restores my soul and I’ve been short-cutting myself by doing just enough to get by. My work is such that almost everything is urgent. It’s hard to justify doing another hour in the gym when we’ve got kids at risk. But how can I lecture them on making better choices when my own health is not what it should be???

my twice-a-year check-up at the allergist’s office; he said that my lung function is very good, & has suggested a new medication to try & help control rhinitis symptoms. 4 months ago
