One of my goals is taking care of my health. That, I make sure by engaging in physical exercise. Though I admit it had been an on and off effort, aka, some months I find myself actively engaging in physical activities like Jillian Michaels, except for the abs and at other times I feel like a walrus plainly sitting, eating and sh….ng. Aside from twice a month hiking we did in the summer, I was filled with hopes last year with an acquisition of a old treadmill via Craigslist. From thirty minutes I progressed to an hour on it without feeling pain on my knees.
All this soon died when I started working at a local grocery store that required me to be on foot for hours. Three months on the job now, I had to lessen the stress on my knees, so less treadmill. In fact my health tracker looks like this:
Writing a goal and looking at it everyday was a reminder, I had to think of another moderate exercise. This led me hula hooping. Thanks again to the internet. I didn’t realize it was easy for a beginner to let it stay on the hips. I could do it for five minutes straight without falling down. There are still a lot of things for me to learn on techniques and tricks (check you tube) and, this would make me active for a while until I’ll get tired or find another interest.
For so many years I had been doing my yearly goals and targets for health, wealth, personal and professional. Some are done, some are not. I cannot be so frigid with myself on strictly following what I had written. Life is a continuing search for something interesting and fun without it losing direction away from your own goals.
I wanted to take a video of me playing hula hoop, but apparently wordpress free plan won’t allow me to do that.
