My plan is to write about these new changes here to hold myself accountable. I have a few friends who I know will encourage me along this new journey as well. Thank you!
The first item on my agenda is to walk as much as possible. I started yesterday and took another long walk this morning. Since I had foot surgery in June and was off my right foot for about 9 weeks, I feel pretty out of shape, but I'm assuming it can only get better with daily practice, right? Aside from the walking, I plan to lift my arm weights, not sure if I should do them daily or take a break in between each day--that I will find out from the doctor. Also, yoga stretches, which make me feel so great, I will do EVERY day. There's no reason not to--I can do them right in my living room and they feel great, so I have no excuses not to do this.
So, here's the start of my new changes...exercising is a top priority for me starting yesterday! So, if you have any tips on staying motivated to get my body moving daily, please share them here. Like I said, I don't LOVE exercising, so I may need lots of help from those of you who do fit it in your daily life.
Next up, changing my way of eating...this may be even harder than daily exercising. I love my food. Stay tuned for some new healthy food additions to my days. I hear sardines with bones are supposed to be good bone food...good Lord.
