Trying New Things and Small Steps

Sunday, December 20, 2009

I think I'm starting to get the idea that small steps DO add up and make a difference, especially when it comes to a healthy lifestyle and trying to lose weight. I've been trying a lot of new recipes and really getting into the cooking thing, also doing small bits of exercise throughout the day, trying to get up early before work to workout and also on my lunch break at work. It is making me feel better and I am noticing a difference (although it is a small difference, but hopefully it will have a snowball effect).

I would also like to try some new things this winter. I have never really liked winter and I've always hated snow (except watching from inside a nice warm house with a cup of hot tea and a book). I think if I make an effort this year to try some new winter activities, maybe it will help me not fear the snow so much. I am thinking of trying ice skating and skiing as I have never done either before. Even if I end up not liking either of them, at least I can say that i tried it. I can't wait to take my son sledding (although he is not liking having to wear the thick snowpants, jacket, hat and gloves. he doesn't even normally like to wear a jacket).

So we'll see how it turns out this winter going into 2010 and starting to build some healthy momentum and making changes in my lifestyle. I am still extremely excited about my yoga teacher training starting on Jan. 23rd and I decided to take Physiology of Wellness online at my local community college next semester to tie in nicely with the overall theme of what I'm trying to accomplish and learn. I'll keep you all posted!

    My daughter was scared of the snow when she was your son's age. Your post reminded me of that memory. She is now 20 years old...
