It's A New Day, It's A New Dawn...

Hello!  I could catch you up on all that has happened since September, but who needs all of that?!?  I have done lots of thinking, soul searching, planning, dreaming, reading, etc...  As of now, I have had 4 procedures to my neck this year.  The last 2 should be it for at least 6 months.  I am finally "on go" to lift upper body again.  It feels WoNDErFuL to have a bar or DB in my hands again.  (It's really the little, I mean BIG, things in life isn't it!)  AS far as blogging, I have mixed feelings.  With so much social media, my life is already laid out for most to see.  Yes, I control what goes out and do not concern myself too much with how it is perceived.  My only hope is that I help in some way to motivate others to lead a less sedentary lifestyle no matter what their age or physical limitations.  It is so encouraging to get texts, or be inboxed on FB about how much my "putting it out there" inspired others to do more, get started, or push harder.  Any one who has ever contacted me knows I will do anything to help them, even training them one on one.  My goal is not to make money, (I leave the money making to the pros) but to help others be the best they can be. 

This is my online journal, and for that reason, I use this to document where I am and where I have come from.  Not too much change from last year at this time.  Considering this was my year to get something done with my neck, most of this year I have not been able to lift upper body, or when I was able to it was modified greatly.  So, what's my wish for 2014?  Absolutely, hands down, no question at all, to have the body I dream of having.  I plan to give it everything I've got.  :)
