Walking

It’s been hard to get my 10000 steps in on a regular basis.  Beijing was always easier because I didn’t have access to a vehicle.  So I have added dog walking to the routine.  At least twice a day.  I slso began doing Leslie Sansone dvds with my grandkids.  It is so much fun!

Today I also took the time to weigh myself.  I don’t do that often but I was pleasantly surprised.  247.5, and I’ve decided to re-start my Ipound a week.  But the most important goal at this point is to get close to my step goal. 

 This was taken this morning – we had a bit of a frost.

Enjoy the day.  Thanks for helping me stay focused.

Catching up!

I haven’t paid this blog much attention for a while, and it shows.  I’m not sure I’m getting healthier (at least my knees are complaining more than usual), my savings are going down a little too quickly for my liking, and wisdom – well, according to Designing Your Life failure is part of the journey of life.  It allows you to reframe and try something different.

April 4, Health:  I ate reasonably well, starting with a smoothie for breakfast.  We brought a snack for “running errands” time – an apple and a banana.  Lunch was rice pudding left over from breakfast.  We are trying NOT to throw food away, but I don’t want to have two breakfasts!  Supper was a “butter” chicken recipe without butter. We used coconut oil instead.

I took the dogs for a walk – each one individually, so that added some steps to my day.  While my goal is to get over 10000 steps, I made it to just over 7000.  The lesson I have been learning over the past month is that I need to be more intentional about what I eat AND how much I move in a day!

WEALTH: Since arriving home from China, I have been spending my savings.  I needed some time to regroup, but now the job hunt is on.  As a family we are collecting our receipts so that we can see just exactly what we are buying.  I’m enjoying access to Value Village again, just to get clothing in my size.  

WISDOM:  From Designing Your Life, try stuff.  Take a chance.  Fail. Try something different.  Test alternatives.  But never, never, never stop moving.  

See you tomorrow!
