Yesterday I caught the Oprah show, it was about the debt diet, and probably a rerun. I seldom watch Oprah, but found yesterday's show intriguing.
Most of the people who were trying to eliminate their debt also lost weight, even though that wasn't their focus. Does the reverse work? Do people who are on weight loss plans also spend less money?
I'm contemplating walking to work every day possible, even in the cold, windy, winter. I'm a bit scared to make the commitment--I'd have to carry my work shoes, my lunch, and I'm a coach, so I'd have to walk to another location after school for practice, and what if. . . ? Its probably an 8 block walk--that sounds so easy, and for many, it probably sounds ridiculous that I'm even driving, but we drive everywhere out here in rural America!
Oprah also made me think about the money I do not need to spend, and I've really been thinking about this-- eliminating debt, saving money, diet, losing weight, exercise, and how all those things combine to make for a healthy lifestyle.
Thinking about all these things is good, but acting on them is rather scary for me.
I need to go to my classroom and school this morning and pick some things up. I think I'll walk!
