Not an event, not a process, a LIFESTYLE

Sunday, October 07, 2012

So I have been thinking about my relationship with food and exercise lately. It hasn't been happy thinking either. I am tired of exercise. I am tired of counting calories. I am tired of having to pay attention to it all.

And I have discovered that being healthy isn't something I can do once. It isn't even something I can have done. It is something I have to do continuously forever. I don't like that. I am still struggling with the idea of having to watch calories until the day I die. Yuck! I don't mind the exercise so that isn't so much of a problem, but I don't like running and I signed up for a running challenge that I dread.

I will have to figure something out.

  What about walking instead of running? The 5k Your Way challenge has a walking version. Or swimming? Or fitness classes. What do you enjoy?

I don't know that you'll get much out of an exercise routine that you dread.

    Look at this as a journey to a healthier lifestyle.....if that is what you want.
Take one day at a time.....walking is one of the best ways of moving that any one can do. Add some more fruits and and veggies every day. Track/don't track that is up to you......only YOU can make the difference. Keep things simple and it will never be too hard to do. emoticon
