A few weeks ago I noticed a tweet on Twitter with #YOLO in it.  I thought, "great another acronym that I have to learn that is pointless."  I looked it up online though to find out it's meaning, YOLO stands for You Only Live Once.  At the time I thought it was rather silly, and frankly the friend that used it initially used it about their first time eating sushi.  (Just a reminder, I rather enjoy sushi and think it's great. Although I am picky about it, lol.)  YOLO came back to my mind this weekend with the theater shooting in Colorado.

Moving On

There are beginnings and endings in life, and many say that to begin something you must end another first.  I don't know how true this is, but I do know that often the moving on from an ending can be incredibly difficult.  No I'm not ending the blog, or my journey, or giving up on Denver yet.  Although I know that at some point all of these things will end, and when their respective times come I hope that I am able to make a graceful transition into a new beginning from them.  There are other endings in life though, and often we have a hard time moving on from them to find the new beginning.

Me In A Bottle

Emotions are a strange thing.  I've talked about this before on the blog.  For instance, I'm an emotional eater, when I get upset I turn to food, when I'm happy and want to celebrate, more food.  Basically if there's an emotion happening, I want to eat.  This doesn't make getting healthy easy.  And when your emotions are messing up your mental health, emotional eating adds to the problems.

Doing Life In Denver

Sea level is for sissy's!  ;-)

Yup that's right people who don't live a mile closer to the atmosphere, I'm calling you out!  Tonight I did another 5K, this officially makes 2 completed!  Although I'm still slow, mainly because I walk mostly...or fully, I know many people who wouldn't even attempt a 5K.  So I'm feeling pretty good about myself right now, something I couldn't say this morning.

I Woke Up This Morning

Today I weighed in. In part because it's been far too long since I've held myself accountable and done that, and in part because tomorrow night I'll be participating in the "Do Life" tour stop in Denver.  I had hopped that by some miracle weight had just dropped off me even though I haven't been working too hard to make that happen.  The fact is that even though I haven't gained any weight, I haven't lost any either.  For the past year since moving away from Indiana I have fluctuated around the same weight give or take a pound or two.
