Things I did for the first time in 2018:
Trained for and ran a half marathon - I did it in just over 3 hours.
Cut off all my hair and donated it to a cancer charity.
Had a mammogram - it was fine, just a bit daunting really to be old enough to require one !
Went back to work full time after being at home with my kids for years - that was a bit of a shock to all of us.
Challenges I faced in 2018:
Spent more time in hospital waiting rooms than I would like.
Shed more tears than I knew possible, not always at the right time or in the right place.
Apologised for my feelings and myself and for things I cannot control. Too often.
Gave my time and energy to others who needed support - it helped me avoid my own stuff.
Saying no when I needed to rest.
Wanting to do everything and to see everyone and to be everywhere.
Promises I want to keep in 2019:
Take better care of my health.
Train for and run another half marathon (in under 3 hours if possible).
Swim regularly again.
Eat well and cook proper food.
Look after myself and get more sleep.
Prioritise myself some of the time.
