health update

some improvement in the mental and emotional
health areas.
I have been lifting almost every day for the
past three weeks. no marathons by any means,
but for the first time in the past 5 years,
I have the drive back again.

pretty long absence for a former gym owner,
who now works for the ymca!

wow, i forgot the sensation of endorphins.
even sleep comes easier at night.

if i was younger, might even consider
resurrecting my volleyball career!

latest blood work shows decreased
cholesterol, weight the same; but the
waist is smaller.

discussed getting off paxil, but
considering my history we decided
to continue at a minimal dose.

this all reminds me of a gift i
was given; one of good health.

That's good news! But it seems to me making you smaller:)

It's so easy to take your health for granted, but it is truly a gift!
