I'm 67 years old: feel better than when I was 30. A few years ago I was morbidly obese, coping with chronic knee pain from a 1988 injury, suffering with chest pains, wondering if I would wake up in the morning. I was a 'walking dead woman'.
Today I'm an endurance athlete: triathlete, century rider, & solo bike tourer (685 mile in 11 days). I'm still working to reach my weight loss goals and remain focused on living a healthy life.

    Cinda W. is taking time away from Daily Challenge and will be back on October 15, 2016.

    I'm taking a break while I heal from a Grade 2 injury to my Achilles and calf. You can follow me on Facebook as I do post there often.

    Well as you may know I was on time away because I was working very hard on the renovation of a 70 year old house. I was almost finished with the interior and starting on the exterior when I injured myself - not on the job.

    While caring for a friend's bird, my sandal caught on an up-turned corner of a chair mat. I grabbed the chair to keep from falling but it spun me around the room and slammed me into the wall. I landed on my butt. I heard a muscle tear in my left leg. Surprisingly this is the only injury I had - although I shattered the heater vent cover and smashed a 10 inch hole in the wall.
    Oh I was bruised and sore all over but I have a Grade 2 injury to my Achilles and calf. It's been 3.5 weeks. I'm making lots of progress and still hoping for complete healing without needing surgery.

    SO I am putting myself on time away again - I've begun some pool therapy and will focus on my recovery. If you want to stay in touch, find me on facebook:

    Thanks for the encouragement as always.

    Cinda W. is taking time away from Daily Challenge and will be back on September 12, 2016.

    I'm taking a break because I am doing a major renovation project for a friend - intense physical labor, at least 6 days a week plus other responsibilities. You can follow me on Facebook: http://facebook.com/cindalee or find out how I am getting my stamina, good rest, rejuvenation at http://thriverswin.le-vel.com
    See ya in mid-September when I hope this project will be finished but that partially depends on Kansas weather as soon we'll be starting on the exterior work.

    I have a couple of nice leak proof containers,
    I'm putting myself on time away again. I'm still working on the renovation project - scope of work increased so perhaps another 3-4 weeks at it.
    You can follow me on facebook http:\\facebook.com\cindalee or check out the wellness company I now represent whose products are giving me the energy to do intense physical labor 5-8 or 9 hours a day, at least 6 days a week (and remember, I'm 67 years of age): http:\\thriverswin.le-vel.com

    I'm taking a break because I'm working on a major house renovation project in addition to all my other activities as a wellness coach, computer consultant, and volunteer. While I'm gone you can follow my activities on FB: http://facebook.com/cindalee
    Remember #thriverswin and without my Thrive Lifestyle I wouldn't be doing all the things I am.

    My resolution - I am working on a special renovation project of a 70 year old house that was abandoned for the past several years. Some 83-85 year old friends bought it as a repo to add to their rental portfolio. They hired me (and allowed me to hire my friend) to do the renovation: prep, prime, and paint all the kitchen and bathroom cabinets - there were six color layers of paint on them; scrape, sand, caulk, prime, and paint all exterior window frames; sand and restain/reseal interior wood window frames and make sure all windows will open (actually a couple of windows have been previously painted so we will repaint them); patch drywall, prep, prime and paint all walls; redo all doors; more work in the basement; and just tonight I found out they want us to paint the exterior too as they are going to delay putting new siding on it.
    It's a big project - I don't know how many more days/weeks of work there is especially with the exterior and heat!
    Anyway - my resolution is to SAVE all the money I am earning from this project for a vacation, perhaps two: one short one later this year and a long one next year to Europe with my bicycle. My resolution is that I can only use this money for vacation, a medical emergency, or a vehicle emergency.
    Additionally I still have a computer project to complete for a client and all that money is getting the same designation. I will continue to live on a tight budget to make this dream come true of a 2-3 month bike ride around Europe - one in which I don't have to camp all the time, and enjoy a few luxuries now and then.

    Now today is my first day back but I am going to put myself on time away again as I just can't do everything. So I'll set it for a return in 3 weeks and give you an update.
    Meanwhile I will continue to be connected on FB: http://facebook.com/cindalee
