Heard the phrase laughter is the best medicine? Here is today’s dose
This is a quick overview of the five steps I started with when I began my wellness journey.
The one thing I did not have was an accountability buddy. Thats why I am launching this program to build a community of like minded women to uplift each other as we move, learn and grow into our best selves.
Over 50 is just the second act there is so much more to come!
Look for an 8 week group training group and an accountability partner program to start soon.
If you or someone you know could benefit from joining in, please send them my info and sign up for more updates!
Accountability according to the Webster Dictionary is:
“the quality or state of being accountable; an obligation or willingness to accept responsibility for one’s actions.” …
I will date myself here by asking how many of you remember looking up how to spell a word by first locating the big Red Webster dictionary, then sounding out the word and scanning those thin pages until you find it?
Anyway, the reason I had to chose this as todays topic is to challenge you on how accountable you are being with your fitness goals. Everything 2020 aside, this is the time of year when excuses for poor diet, skipping workouts and lack of portion control can creep in.
So open that accountability app on your phone or challenge a friend online, pick something small to start, more green veggies in the diet, one more hour off screens before bedtime, and a few more minutes stretching and working up a sweat. This way when you ring in 2021 you have a healthy balance in your wellness account.

This year has been a real test for everyone and I am sending all of the squad a huge HUG and hope you stay well.
I started to think about what Strong By Strand means. It has become my platform to share my helath and wellness journey in the hope that I help someone else along the way.
Thats a pretty lofty goal and one that I did not take very seriously, and that changes now. I am committing to making this the best platform it can be so be on the lookout for lots of new content.
I promise no doomscrolling or difficult phyical challenges will be coming your way. The best way forward is one step at a time and with this blog and a each other we can keep moving in the right direction.
I was thinking this morning about the first presidential election that I was eligible to vote in. I had to look it up because I did not remember it! I think that this election will be alot different for any first time voter.
The pandemic has changed everything. It has always been important to vote and have a say in your local representatives but looking back on the several times I have voted, i never felt this much of a focus on the election.
So on Tuesday this will be my strategy.
Doomscrolling is endlessly reading bad news story after bad news story, and understandably can leave you feeling… bad.
I will set aside a block of time to look at the news once or twice a day and go directly to a source I can trust. It can be tempting to see other perspectives on the same story, but that can lead to more anxiety.
This is my go to for most everything anyway so why not?
