Mulligan

by

(in informal golf) an extra stroke allowed after a poor shot, not counted on the scorecard. (online dictionary)

December 2017 – January 2018 was not counted on the scorecard. My role of 11 years ended at a company I was an employee for 16 years. It was the holidays after a milestone birthday. I celebrated the start of one milestone and the ending of another. The celebrating didn’t really include extensive cardio exercises or golf. It did include a lot of champagne, cake, and amazing food. Also a new strength training routine and I learned my way around a weight room.

January began with a new role and a new waistline (also a new roll). Despite the extra poundage I was “over the moon” happy with my new beginning.

Now as we enter into March – I’m giving myself a mulligan. I’m settling into my new responsibilities at work so now it’s time to get back into a work -out routine.

My goal this year is to get back to my solid “thickness” and ditch the low dosage blood pressure medicine. Wish me luck!
