Changes August 2019

August has been a breakthrough month in terms of self-care. Eating and exercising have gone really well, particularly since August 10. A corner may have been turned.

I spent the time from August 9 through August 28 providing support to my wife as she recovered (really well!) from hip surgery in Louisville, KY. I ate well and worked out there. The workouts were guided by my friend and trainer Nicole Kung of NK Body Philosophy.

Today was the first day I had a training session with Nicole. I asked her to take a photo to use as a starting point as I live into this new way of living. She said, I think I have one from before. She took today’s photo and provided a comparison with a photo from February. There’s a long way to go, but it’s a good beginning.
