A Great Day | Taking the First Step

Hello there, it’s been a while!

Actually, this post is going to be about yesterday, because it marked the start of my month “at liberty”. Last Friday was my last day of work at the place I’ve been for the past  3 1/2 years. I left, my choice, to begin a new journey of reinvention–something I’ve been alluding to here on my blog for the past several months. March will be used for many purposes as I prepare to move on in new directions.

Diet and exercise–who knew? 🙂 I’ve now officially lost over 20 pounds since the holidays, and I’m starting to feel really good about that. My annual physical is coming up in less than a month and my doctor will certainly be pleased. If I keep this up, I may even actually get back to the 160 pounds I’d set as a pie-in-the-sky goal well over a year ago–almost a pipe-dream, really.

Last weekend, I went to Bakersfield for the California State CIF High School Championship Wrestling Tournament and had an awesome time! Somehow it made me feel like there’s still good left in the world, (the bastards of the International Olympic Committee notwithstanding)…

Feeling in good health, good spirits and tasting freedom again, I went around most of the day yesterday with a big, stupid grin on my face. I haven’t felt so light and happy for ages, it seems. Eating my weekly lunch at Egg Plantation seemed tastier, my daily fitness walk seemed much more invigorating, the world seemed brighter and livelier somehow. I even ended the afternoon with a sharp new haircut–never underestimate the power of a good haircut.

But I’ll just close this for now–still with a big, stupid grin on my face–and say “stay tuned for further developments”.
