Reflexology For The Spirit

On a Diet? Get active, eat better, and lose weight!

I don’t know about you, but  I’ve discovered some interesting extra pounds recently.  Not only am  I eating more but I’m also moving less.  It seems  with each passing day, I’m older and  rounder.

Sometimes I feel like I can’t win this battle.  Then, I think about my situation and I realize that I can win this battle.  I need to go on a diet.

The last time I went on a diet, I lost almost three dozen pounds.  That was a long time ago.  Almost thirty years ago, to be exact.  I kissed carbs goodbye and the pounds went along with them.

This time I think I can have a more successful diet and my life will be easier, too.  So…I’m taking this diet week-by-week.  I plan to lose weight using newer, more effective, techniques.  I plan to be healthier.

I hope to do some more interesting things along the way, too.

Will you join me?

I’m hoping to  share  effective weight-loss tips to make weight loss easier and more fun.  I’m also hoping I’ll be able to keep the weight off!

For my first week on this diet, I’m thinking of ways to move more.  I’m getting active for more energy.

I have a weekly zoom yoga/fitness class with Carolyn Abedor on Thursday mornings.  I would prefer to have two classes each week with her but I’m working  on Tuesday mornings when she offers her other class.  I would love to rearrange my work schedule but, so far, have been unable to do so.

I spend a few  minutes on a personal trampoline each day.  Reflexologists love personal trampolines and I’m no exception.

At least twice daily,  my 5-pound chihuahua walks me down the street.  That will soon end when the snow comes.  Taco can’t stand icy roads.

So, I’m seeking other active options.

I try to walk more at work and I like to walk  more when I food shop.

A new goal is to put in about 300 extra steps every day – no matter what.  I plan to add more physical activities over time until I’ve move these 300 steps to 30 minutes of daily exercise.

I’m searching for low-impact activities on exercise videos such as YouTube and Amazon.  I’m planning to check out some videos at the library.  I also plan to contact my area hospital to see what programs are available at its wellness center.

Thank you for allowing me to share this journey with you.  I wish us all success in this quest for better health and a better weight.

Meanwhile, for this week, Let’s Move!

I’m hoping you’ll share this article with your preferred social media network.
