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.

    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

    Too many irons in the fire - you know that expression? Well, that's why I need to take a break from DC. Multiple contract projects in progress as well as just starting to share my journey with some new nutritional supplements that are helping me get back on a healthy track.

    One of my goals is to get back into shape so I have energy for a major long distance bike ride again.
    I'm happy to say that several things are helping me achieve this. One I implemented two weeks ago when I started taking some new nutritional supplements. I am amazed at the difference they are making in how I feel: I sleep better, wake up earlier and with energy, better mobility again, and so much nicer skin.
    Two - I'm just engaging more with the world and that helps fuel my motivation.
    Three - I accepted a contract to do major rehab work on repo house, and I was able to get a friend hired too. So we are working together - great exercise and support on our wellness goals. Plus we're each earning some money for something special. She is putting hers towards a down payment on a new car; I am saving mine for travel expenses.

    So with that I will tell you that I have decided to take a 2 week hiatus from DC as I just have too many things going on now: this rehab project; phase 3 of an upgrade for a computer client; pet sitting where I will have to stay at the home because there are 5 pets; "lawn sitting" - where I will spend probably 1.5 hours a day for 10 days watering flowers and veggies and mowing the lawn at least once; plus my regular household chores where I live.

    Because I use FB for business and pleasure, I will remain active there during this hiatus so if you want to connect there, just click here:

    First off - looks like I have a bucket full of encouragement today - so thanks everyone.

    I will be 67 years old in two days - and I need to live a long time because I have a huge bucket list.

    I dream of taking a very long bicycle journey both around the USA and Europe, possibly Africa and South America. On the last two continents I prefer to have a cycling companion but will probably do the USA and Europe solo. I want to be able to use a variety of accommodations - camping, warmshowers hosts, hostels, hotels, fb friends, etc. While I don't want to be extravagant I also don't want to be stressed when it is necessary to spend money. I hope this dream comes to fruition next year.

    Ziplining....

    Snubeling - this is a combination of snorkeling and scuba diving where dive certification is not required but you can go deeper and stay down longer than jusst regular snorkeling (which I love).

    A trip to south seas...

    Snowshoeing too or cross country skiing - preferably into a cabin where you can spend the night in the woods and then work your way back out the next day.

    A combination European barge cruise with cycling...that is something I dreamed up long before I took up cycling.

    Taking hospital bikes to Malawi and being the "ambulance" pedaler (for 4-6 weeks) to take patients to/from the village/hospital.

    Having a home base near the ocean - actually looking over the ocean or inland waterway with a bedroom facing the east for the sunrise.

    Having a medium sized motorhome to travel the USA with my bicycle too.

    Okay - I could go on and on.....

    Here's my current project making some extra money toward living something on my bucket list: I'm working on a repo home that will become a rental. Unfortunately it's not my property but belongs to a friend who hired me to do the work. This is me stripping the shelf paper off kitchen cabinet, only to discover rotten tarpaper type linoleum underneath. Tomorrow I'll be using a heat gun to aid in the removal.
