My New Lease on Life


Our new wicker porch swing is comfy.  It's best enjoyed early in the morning, or later
in the evening after the sun has gone down.  It's going to be a really hot weekend, and the
temperature will hit 100 degrees both Saturday and Sunday.  I don't think we will be
doing much outside.  I really wish we had a pool now.  Those plans got shelved when I
started getting ill last summer.  I have had some very strange kind of virus that zapped
every bit of strength I had.   It lasted for months and months.  I finally just started to
turn the corner this past April.  I feel like the virus has finally gone away.  Now
I just have to work on regaining my strength.




I have always been a high energy girl.  Months of living on a couple hours of sleep
each night, and whatever sleep I could get was disturbed by coughing, left me
very weak.  My muscle tone started to disappear and I was starting to look
like a live skeleton.  I tried working out, standard cardio and strength training,
but couldn't handle it.  Just this past Monday, I tried again.  So far I have
completed 30 minutes of cardio for five straight days, and three days of
strength training.  I can't begin to tell you how much different I feel.  I have added
an afternoon nap each day too.  Suddenly, instead of dragging around, I have
started to want to do things again.  



These past few months, my interests have been so limited.  I thought I
could just take it easy all day and read books.  For the first time in my
life, I couldn't even concentrate to read.  I was so restless, yet exhausted
at the same time.  Shepherds Abiding by Jan Karon has been sitting
unfinished on my nightstand for months.  I knew there was something really
wrong with me because I love the Mitford books.  



I kept working on Sweet Tea Cottage, but only for a few short minutes
per day. Despite the fact that it tired me, I knew I had to have something
to focus on other than this strange virus.  My poor manuscript has been
sitting on my desk, untouched too.

Now that I am getting that blood circulating better and getting more
rest, I am starting to to reinvest in life.  This afternoon I walked out into
the backyard and started focusing on the shape of the pool and exactly
where I want it.  Life is good once again.

Big Texas Hugs,
Susan and Bentley

  2. Susan, I didn't know you have been ill this past year. I'm sad you have had to deal with this. I do hope you are on the mend and that your strength and energy will return full speed ahead. Yes, focus on your pool. A project is always good!

  3. Although I pulled a groin muscle and have suspended my thrice weekly workouts, I'm still on the move and love my naps. Such a pleasure to hear that you are improving and getting back to the good things in life. Good for you.

  7. Before confiding in any Georgia brisk weight reduction focus counsel first with a medicinal expert especially a dietitian or nutritionist. They can furnish you with an evaluation or suggestion. https://doctorsupplement.com
