I love to garden and I have found gardening has played a huge part in reaching my goals. Growing a garden is a lot of physical work and it gets me outside. I really enjoy growing my own salads, I know there are no harmful chemicals involved and taking my basket out to snitch leaves off my lettuce, spinach and chard is a stress free, relaxing, thankful experience. If you don't have enough land for a garden you can use containers on your patio or just set a pot outside anywhere. 436
Winter is a bleak and depressing time for me so I have learned how to grow cherry tomatoes and strawberries in my big sunny windows. Food can be fun and healthy!
I was like a little child today and stayed outside more than 6 hours working but it was like playing. I love the out doors and when it gets 70 + that is where I will be. I got a lot of vitamin D today . If you have nice weather get outside and enjoy it after being stuck inside all winter. God gave us a beautiful warm day. Learn from Spark people and pass it on.
I plan everything for the week..when I will work out, what I will eat, and more importantly when I will most likely overindulge because of a celebration, a party etc. I exercise extra that day and eat a smaller lunch.
This strategy keeps me from feeling deprived, decreases my chances of getting derailed and allows me to still participate in social events I enjoy.
