I've talked from time to time about trying to find balance in my life. It's something that I think most of us struggle with in this busy world we live in. There are so many demands on our time from work to family to children and spouses to community involvement...it's neverending.
It's easy to let things like exercise, eating right and general happiness slip to the wayside in the business of living. We all do it. I know I have.
Since I started working from home as a full-time writer three years ago I've definitely let a lot of my good habits slide. When you work from home it's easy to always be working. Or when I'm not working, I feel guilty about it.
Sitting in a desk chair for so many hours a day has had a predictable result--an extra 10 pounds and a lot less flexability.
So, I've begun to change that.
The plan is to incorporate my yoga DVDs into my life once again, along with some light weights and your ususal ab exercises and push ups. Besides that, I'm hoping to get out walking more. I used to walk a lot, but haven't done much of that lately.
Then there's food. I love to eat. LOL And that won't change. I won't cut things out of my diet because that's just not sustainable. What I can do is downsize portions and cut back on how many times a week I have dessert. I'm lucky that fried foods are not my weakness. It's sweets and chocolate...especially chocolate.
I'm not so concerned about what the scale says as I am about feeling healthy again. I don't want to wait until I have a health crisis to make myself change.
So here's to new beginnings.
Wish me luck!
