In reflecting on myself this week I have discovered I have a sort of healthy Lifestyle A.D.D. I wonder if this is normal or if I really need to focus on 1 thing at a time. when I started my goals were simple, 1: Eat healthy 2:cook Healthy 3: Be active.
Along the way my exploding passionate personality added a few more things to that list. To encourage eating healthy, cooking healthy and being active, hey lets start a garden. This soon had me researching all things gardening. I now want to open up my yard for a "community" garden for friends and family. I am not only planning to make use of the back yard for gardening but also will use the front. I have a lot of raised beds to build.
Also added to the list, operation find a bike. Done, found and bought at garage sale for $15 go me. I rode it for a bit but then clumsy hubby accidentally tripped and kicked my spokes braking the nipples (nipples that hold spoke in place, not ones under my bra
) Riding bike has ceased until hubby gets me new parts. He better hurry.
I started to do Zumba. There isnt anything better then a cardio work out that tricks you into thinking hey this is fun and not a work out. And then it came into my head that once I get a handle on the working out I think maybe I can become an instructor. wait let me get a gym membership too, gotta get the muscles worked out.
It doesn't end there. I also have decided doing a c25k would be just the thing for me to do. Ah but Dee you're not a runner, it's ok I went on the internet and found me a nifty c25k training schedule...do you see where I am going.
It is one "healthy" thought after another. A bunch of plans that I really hope I can stick to and complete. I just worry that my commitment will falter like my desire to lose weight has dimmed in the past.
