So here we are, 27 days away from Christmas and I am still in a Turkey fog. Happy to report that the holiday of indulgence has not added any weight to me. I am feeling like I am struggling a bit with my sugary sweets cravings lately. I need to get this under control now. I have a plan to keep busy and avoid the reasons why I snack. The number on reason is stress. So I am going back to just doing my job and controlling what I can.
I think I am as close to 100% healed from my back injury as I can possibly be. I feel plenty strong enough and can run up to 13 miles at a time now. I am very happy about this because of my charity event. I am 112 miles from completing my 1017 mile mission. The charity part is collecting goods and money for some of our struggling Veterans.
I have received nothing but excellent care in my years of going to various VA facilities for care. What they cannot do is support every veteran that needs some basic life necessities. I am collecting undergarments and toiletries for two local VA medical facilities. They volunteer out reach teams have told me that the need is great and the shelves are bare. I hope my basement full of goods will help some people out.
So what is in store for 2018? Who knows. Stay tuned and check out my charity link
