OK, so feeling in the mood for big changes.
First one has got to be finances!
Ian’s drop in wages has hit us a little harder than expected so we are going to have to be a little bit more thrifty over the next year and aim to pay off and cancel some of the credit cards. They’ve slowly been creeping up over the last few months and they are now money down the drain in payments. Money we literally may not have after Xmas!
Tackle it now while it’s still under control.
Speaking of Xmas, it’s going to be a lean affair this year.
Individual budgets are going to be smaller. Non existent when it comes to me and Ian.
As much as I hate to do it, it’s needs must at this point.
Sitting here resting my knee over the last week has given me lots of thinking time.
Too much thinking time.
I’m 47 in a month and I’ll be damned if I’m going to head into my 50’s overweight and unfit.
I want to be out having fun and re-capturing a youth I was too timid to go after the first time around.
So! Now that the knee is feeling a bit better, I plan to re-introduce the physio exercises and see how it goes. Then the diet that started so well and then stalled because of the knee needs to be kick started again.
I need to take it slow and concentrate on strengthening the knee. If nothing comes out of the MRI on 28th it will be my only course of action.
I have my Brother’s wedding in Tuscany to look forward to at the end of August and Murron wants to take me to Brighton Pride and I’m determined to look ‘fabulous’ for it.
It’s going to be a tough year ahead but it will be worth it in the long run.
Just need to get Ian on board with the weight and fitness part. I’m not standing around waiting for him to catch up to do things. If I want to go out and do something, I’m going to bloody well do it. I’m not missing my chance again.
I’m going to retire disgracefully.
