    Thank You For Being A Friend

    August 4, 2016

    I got a call today from a friend and colleague who told me she felt like a creeper because she was reading my blog. I was surprised and felt excited that someone I know is reading my blog! Yay!

    She then told me she thought it was so good, and highlighted a couple posts she especially liked. She DID read them – yahoooo!

    It was so nice to:

    A) hear from her

    B) hear she was reading my blog

    C) hear she liked my blog

    D) hear her words of encouragement

    It was really uplifting, and I didn’t realize how that simple support would invigorate me.

    I definitely need more of it. It truly helps – even the simplest call, text, email or comment means a lot.

    So thanks to the people who rally around me, check in on me, and show me they are reading and helping me along the journey. It helps.

    Thank you for being a (Rawking) friend.

    Also – just want to share a little awesome update. I’ve been tracking all my food/exercise daily again, and I’ve been under my daily calorie allowance (probably due to cutting way back on the booze) on all days (except my birthday BBQ when I drank like a fish).

    Feeling the Love

    I am a fiercely independent person, but I know to accomplish my health and fitness goals, I need support. I need to talk to people. I need encouragement. I need someone to pick me…
