A Work in Progress

work-in-progress-copia3

Just like myself, this site is currently a work in progress. I have some ideas on what I’d like it to be, how I want it to look, but am leaving the design to a very talented lady who happens to be my daughter. She’ll be prettying things up soon, but in the meantime I’ll just putter around my new “home” and figure things out asĀ  I go.

I’ve had several blogs over the years, each chronicling a particular place in my life. There was one about day-to-day stuff, love & romance & family life. Then there was the pin-up themed weight loss blog, a sassy & fun time. When I went vegan and subsequently started traveling a lot, a new blog reflected that change. I’ve had a great time with each of those endeavors, but now I find it time to move on.

Oh, I’m still in love and have a wonderful family. I still adore pin-ups and sass, and am most certainly still a vegan. But at the ripe ol’ age of 50, I’m also a little bit more settled. More comfortable. I don’t feel the need to disclose quite so many details of my personal life, yet there are aspects I still want to share. I don’t travel as much, and would much rather prepare a meal in my own kitchen rather than dine out. In some ways I’m slowing down, but in others I feel I’m just getting started! Such is life in one’s 50’s, or so I’m told.

So, what next? Well, I see my focus being on fitness and (still) weight loss, using what I’ve learned in the past few years to create even better health & well-being. I’ve got a lot of experience with what works, and what doesn’t, as far as weight loss goes. I’ve studied tons of material from plant-based doctors and professionals, am excited by what I’ve learned and thrilled to continue learning and growing. I’d like to form a little community here, an exchange of ideas with like-minded people. I realize that there are tons of vegan books and blogs and websites out there, no need to reinvent the wheel here, but I’d like to provide my own slant, my personal experiences. If nothing else, I’ll have a record of this era of my life, a time when I have the freedom and means to dabble a bit, to experiment and play and learn new things, meet new people, grow and flourish in these middle-aged years.

So, that’s where my head is at the moment. I hope I can bring this to fruition, that this will be a place of motivation and inspiration, of discussion and sharing. I hope you’ll help me to create just such a place.
