I have been really struggling with getting my head back into weightloss mode. Caitlin from www.healthytippingpoint.com recently posted that she and her hus were looking into buying a house. She listed her non-negotiables and her wants for her future house. It got me to thinking about my current situation, our move from a year ago. While we found a house to rent that we love, we are less than happy with the area. We should have come up with a list of non-negotiable for the area. Not just the job and the house.
I am unhappy that this area does not have the resources needed to maintain a healthy lifestyle. If we were to move again I have come up with a list of things the area would have to have for me to be willing to move there.
1. Access to healthy, not overly processed foods. Trader Joe’s or Whole Foods would be ideal.
2. Access to a gym that is decently staffed. They gym would also have to offer classes like Zumba. A nice to have is a place that would offer pole dancing.
3. Easier access to activities such as dance and gymnastics for my children.
4. Family friendly activities - especially on rainy days.
I am sure I could come up with more, especially after I talk to my DH. We are unhappy here, but we don't want to move. Our jobs are going well.
