Hello friends! I am so glad to be back!!!! For those who don’t know me, I started in May with the goal of being fit enough to keep up with our twenty-something kids while in vacation in Ireland this September (we live in Pennsylvania, US). I made it to week 8, and life intervened.
The great news is that I kept my hard-won fitness and we had a blast in our trip. Tromped all around Dublin and Galway, climbed stairs and the Cliffs of Moher with the youngsters, and even ran (snail-like) down the length of the train station in Galway, much to my family’s amazement. Success!! I did a little victory dance and puffed up my chest a bit at that accomplishment. 😁 However, re-entry to regular life, jet lag, work craziness, and an ear/sinus infection have all slowed me down the last three weeks.
I’m thrilled to report that tomorrow (Monday) is my re-commitment day and I am back on the program. I’m going to take our mentors’ advice, and embrace my inner snail. I’m not sure which week to start with - any suggestions??
