Get up and get moving!
I took my camera and there were a lot of the gold and purple flowers blooming. Not too many leaves have changed much but you could tell fall was in the air. I thought back to the spring when the wild rose was blooming and the air was sweet with it's fragrance. There are still a few honeysuckle blooming but change is on it's way. It made me liken it to our lives. Youth is the spring of our lives, summer the busy times and fall we begin to slow down. Winter can be long and hard.
One way to make the latter years easier (any years for that matter...many of the biggest loser contestants are very young) is to take better care of ourselves.
The area in which I live has a large population of asian people. Usually when I walk at the farm that is all I see walking. On Wednesday, I noticed they were having an excercise session. I admire the self discipline of many people of asian heritage.
It can be really simple. Move more and eat more whole grains and fruits and vegtables.
I still have a way to go and am almost to my one year anniversary of my journey to a better lifestyle but it has certainly improved my life. I have many things in other realms to work on but having one thing right does make all the other things easier to handle.
Not sure if it is the weather change or that impending birth that is making me wax poetic and making me think more (I do think more when I walk more...another advantage)....maybe it is seeing the pain in the faces of the contestants on Biggest Loser....anyway, think of small changes you can make and do it.....well, I am off to the gym!
