What Motivates Me - the criss-cross effect again...

Friday, March 19, 2010

1. Feeling the rain, air, sun on my face as I run connects me to natures cycles.
2. Calming my mind in the discipline of stretching my body in yoga.
3. Weight training - this is the difference between having crippled, painful knees and being able to run, pain-free.
4. Buying fresh, organic, local fruit & veg once or twice a week at local markets - for the social atmosphere as well as making nutrition easy.
5. Preparing, cooking and eating consciously loves and acknowledges my family.
6. RESPECT - my healthy food and lifestyle choices are slowly creating a me who respects herself, who tells herself affirming words and looks in the mirror.
7. All these habits and choices support my artist soul, I plan on creating and exhibiting for a very long time.

Our home garden veggie boxes in Dec that have taken over the front lawn.

Now it is March and pumpkins have really sprawled out!

    What a wonderful list! I especially like the one about how cooking nutritious food shows love for your family. That's totally how I feel about it, too. Caring about their health takes a little bit more effort than opening up boxes and cans of semi-prepared food, but it's SOOO worth it to keep my little family at their healthiest! emoticon

    Great blog! Love your garden. Gardening is one of my favorite things, but, though my flowers do well, I haven't been very successful with veggies. This year I am determined to grow some food!

You sound content. It's so great to hear! Keep up the good work, and the positive attitude.
