It has been way too long since I posted - way too long. I have been juggling a lot of things - new projects, catching up on professional reading, a huge fitness challenge that I embarked on about a month ago, time with friends (not as much a hermit as I have been the last few years) and busy with the things of daily living.

I have been working out at a really ferocious rate - increasing my exercise by at least 50%. For a bit my knees were really bothering me from doing so much high intensity interval cardio work on the treadmill. No more pain as now I have discovered the recumbent bike and it's much easier on these old knees. This week, in addition to 2 weight training sessions with Suzy and my cardio, I plan to do a Zumba class and a core training class, both at the YMCA.

I have much, much more to share with you. Some of my dear readers may remember that a few years ago I tried to start an initiative called, "The Grief Project" and I just couldn't do it then. I was too raw, too deep in my own bereavement. Now is the time.

The Grief Project is being initiated now. I will do a post this week with all the details. It is exciting and fulfilling a long held dream of mine. I will also blog soon about my fitness program and the challenge. It is an exciting mind, body and spirit endeavor.

Glad to be back at the blog = there is more to come.....


  1. i am excited to hear about it.

  2. It all sounds very good Suzann. You sound happy...and healthy. Cheers to you.

  3. so good to hear another dream is coming to realization! good for you and for those who will find support in their process by your work.

    it is always a treat to find a post here so i look forward to hearing more from you again. :)

  4. I hope your plan will allow also those who were divorced and still grieving. I had a cousin who once said she thought it was worse for her to have lost her love to divorce than her uncle who lost his to death because she had the blame aspect to deal with, the rejection, but the loss was as great in terms of he was gone and she had to go on alone.
