Healthy is Boring

Now don't get me wrong "Being" healthy isn't boring but the parts that get you to that point are.  I mean c'mon counting calories, exercising etc....isn't fun unless you make it fun.

I finally talked my husband into becoming healthy with me.   We'll start out slow as he has really bad allergies/asthma and move up from there.  I'm also taking this period of unemployment to make up a menu of totally delicious but better for us meals.  Onward and Upward from here:)

Tomorrow morning we'll both step on the scale..just once, in this journey together and then we'll go and walk for fifteen to 30 minutes.  While I don't advocate "scale watching"  in our case we want to have a "Before"  point.

Im always going to be a "big" girl, its in my genes, but I can be healthy and happy and a big girl at the same time for sure.

I've also been on the hunt for a new bike: At least 8 gears, curved handlebars, step through frame but without a cramped feeling....This is one bike so far that has caught my eye:
Linus Dutchi 8

A friend has this bike and I'm making plans for a meet up with her so I can check it out in more detail.  I have a vintage three speed bike but compared to hubbys zillion geared bike I would have a hard time keeping up with him and hills would kill me for sure.  I also already have another hybrid but honestly I hate the mountain bike type handlebars and its a pain getting on and off as it isn't a step-through.

Much Love, Happy & Healthy Living!!

To Sonia

Dear Sonia,

I lost your blog site information a few month ago and I really miss reading it.

If you still wander by mine could you please send me the link to yours please.

Thank you:)

Picking myself up

April 7th I resigned from my job.   There were a lot of factors in that decision but the main ones were  a wishy-washy employer and constant stress.  The job itself wasn't stressful but the workplace environment was.   3 of us ended up leaving the company at the same time.

This of course turned me into a bit of a hermit and homebody coupled with depression and constant migraines.

While I swore I wouldn't never "diet" again I realize that my body is screaming for help to be more healthy.  After all I'm not getting any younger and I'd rather not have my future years spent as a broken down old lady lol.

So in the regard I've committed to getting more mobile,  being more diligent in what I eat and doing things that make me happy.   I'm thinking of joining Weight Watchers Online also, not for the diet factor but for the structure it would provide me in making better choices.  

So while I'm unemployed again my goal is to get back to my happy place and love life again.

Much Love & Happy Living!!!

P.S. I'll be posting more again too ..My goal is three posts a week
