For this Friday's Five, share with us five transformations that the coming fall will bring your way.
Bonus: Give us your favorite activity that is made possible by the arrival of fall.
Transformation 1: Back to a "normal" life whatever that is. I have a CT scan scheduled for next Friday and I hope it will be "clear" of cancer. I'm feeling good, the best I've felt in months, so I'm hopeful that there are no bad things growing in me.
Transformation 3. Weeding my yard. I have avoided gardening. (As I was beating myself up over lagging in making plane reservations for our vacation, my son reminded me that I was caught up in something else this spring.) I also want to figure out something to do with the two narrow beds along the drive. One the landscaper planted, to no avail and the other the landscaper ignored (despite my directions to do something with it).
Transformation 4. I am dieting. I decided I did not want to live the rest of my life as large as I am. I would like to lose 20 pounds (the same 20 I have been wanting to lose for about five years). I walked an hour yesterday! I want to get back to running and resistence work and yoga.
Transformation 5. Giving up my computer addiction. I spent way too much time with my laptop.
In Memphis, fall when it finally arrives brings evening walks, being able to get out later in the morning to exercise, long hikes in the park on Fridays. Being able to be outside more during the day.
