I can do 500 minutes exercise in a month. It includes gardening and housekeeping. Also Qi Gong and walking.
What are others doing for exercise?

I loved the "Golden Rule" that was on our childhood rulers back in the 50s. It's as important today as it was back then:
Do unto others as you would have others do unto you.

Part of our new lifestyle involves eating or doing things that we've never done before. That's probably why we were unhealthy to begin with.

I myself am a picky eater. Fruits and veggies especially. There are things I don't like, and things I've never had because I just never bothered to try. I've also found that there are things I used to not like, but eat now. Some that I actually like now and some I just tolerate. Growing up, I ate what my mother cooked. She wasn't very adventurous, and she didn't like certain things, so she never cooked them. I was pretty much the same way. But all of that is changing.

In order to keep things interesting, it's important that we change or expand our old habits to include healthier ones. It's also about bettering ourselves.

So this is an ongoing daily challenge to try something new every day. It doesn't have to be food. Whether it be for mind, body, or soul, just something you have never done before.

Don't like brussels sprouts or asparagus? Try putting a sauce, other topping or different seasoning on them. Lowfat cheese or lemon pepper for instance. Spinach? Mushrooms? Chop it up and add it to a soup, or sneak some onto a sandwich or in a salad. Try baking your own bread or making your own applesauce.

An exercise or activity that you've never done before. Maybe because you didn't think you could. Try it now. Anything from giving a Hula-Hoop a whirl to climbing a rock wall.

Hard core rocker? Warm weather is coming, and with it, many free outdoor concerts. Community bands or orchestras for instance. Attend a symphony performace or even an opera. Switch out a fiction novel for non-fiction. Or write one. Read a manual, or instructional book. Origami or an auto repair manual. Or the Bible.

Strike up a conversation with someone you see often, but have never spoken to. Go roller-blading. Watch a documentary on anthills.

This whole journey is filled with challenges. But it's the challenges we make for ourselves that result in bettering ourselves that are most rewarding.

You don't have to like it, or ever do it again. Just try it. Eat it. Do it. Be it.

Challenge yourself. Push yourself. Enrich yourself.

And then come back here and tell us what you did, and whether you liked it or not. How you did it, or what you would change if you did it again. Small or big, it doesn't matter. If you did it, and have never done it before, post it here.
