I wanted to write one more "introductory" post before I feel like I've settled back into the blogging deal. And this is mostly for myself. To put something "on paper" as it were.
2015 needs to be the year that I seriously take myself down the road to better health, mentally and physically. No, I don't have any huge issues other than being way too overweight. I did a few years ago and many of you were around when I had ovarian cancer. Gratefully, that has not recurred and I'm 6-1/2 years out. That being said, I don't want to take anything for granted. I have done better some years on the fitness goal, working with a trainer and getting stronger, and some years have been rather sluggish. 2015 is not going to be sluggish.
I know there are some groups out there in the blogging world that are about moving more and fitness goals and I may decide to join at some point. Right now, I just want to throw my goals out there and say, here's my plan.
Eat a little less and notice more about what I eat and how I feel when I do it.
Move more. Much more. Building up a little at a time. Walking. Strength training (I have the equipment and the know how). Yoga (the ending part with the meditation is the best). Oh and rowing. I have a rowing machine here at home. I haven't used it as much as I would like. Rowing is soothing and kind of zen for me.
That's it. All my goals. I'll try to mention my progress now and then. Audiobooks will be my friend. And good rollicking music. I've joined a yoga class that starts next week. I've been away from it too long and decided to try a new yoga place and take their beginner's class. My body feels very creaky in many ways, so I think that easing back into the stretching and poses will be good.
Thanks for listening and good luck with any goals or aims that you have set for yourselves as this year, 2015 (isn't it amazing that it's 2015?) gets rolling.
