Health A.D.D.

Monday, August 02, 2010

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 emoticon ) 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.

    You have just described my life! haha I'm not as frugal as you are in pursuing it, so I give you props on that!

    I even got sucked into buying the preconfigured and over the top raised bed gardening center I saw at a wholesale club a couple of years ago but we plant a few things every year..I want to keep it organic so won't use Sevin or pesticides...which means...I just feed the birds and bugs and they strip the plants. BUT...you are younger and smarter and you can do it!!! GO YOU!
