Today is my 100th post day since I started the "Carlson Custodians” blog, back in December of 2011. I first named my blog "Carlson Clan" because GW wants to go to Scotland someday and I have Scottish ancestors. My favorite part about the Provo 4th of July parade are the bag pipes! But I liked the sound of Custodians better, so thus the change.
To celebrate this historical event I’ve decided to begin another post on, "Journey to the Gym”. GW bought a 12 month family pass to the Provo Rec. Center, and it has made this summer so far really fun. The pass was a little on the expensive side, but, since we are not taking a vacation trip, we thought it was a good splurge. I know last year I journeyed to a different gym and almost ruined my achilles heel by running too hard on the tread mill. After a six month membership I could hardly walk bare foot because my heels hurt so bad. It took me almost three months to recover and I didn’t think I would ever be back to a gym again.
Thanks to my neighbor, who mentioned to me at work one day that her husband was helping other women in our neighborhood with weights, exercise, and a diet program. Well, I decided to join the ranks. I started on May 1, 2013. Yes that was almost two months ago. It has taken me this long to try and get over the addictions I have acquired in the last fifty-four years! My trainer suggested that I stay on low carbs and only have a moderate treat once a week. Well I found out I couldn’t even do that so two weeks ago I went to a 12 step addiction program sponsored by The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. The spirit was so strong in the meeting that I actually felt a little touch of hope.
So, I will continue to report my progress and hopefully accomplish the goals I have set for the summer of 2013!
Happy One Hundred, Opa!!
