What I’m doing to be… more physically fit.

My goal when I started this blog was to figure out how to live my life intentionally. I wear many hats. The mom, the wife, the daughter, the friend, the artist, the blogger, the woman – just to name a few. How can I make a more intentional focus on the different aspects of my life so that they can be more nourished? Every week I plan to choose an area of my life to focus on. One action in particular to pay homage to it in a way. This week being the first of 2012 I chose my physical health.

Today we joined a gym.

It’s close to home, has child-minding and fantastic hours. Our hope is that we will encourage each other to go together or separately as much as possible. I would like to get back to the weight I was this time last year (about 10 pounds lighter). Physical wellness affects your entire life. Being fit will help me be a better…everything else because I should have more energy to play with the kids or clean the house, work long hours or dance all night. It also gives us something we can do together other than hang out at home or go for dinner and a movie. The usual excuses are invalid for the most part because they have a room you can bring your kids to (for a small fee). They are also open 24 hours Monday to Thursday so that removes a huge barrier too. No excuses just new dedication.

What are you doing to be more physically fit?

Wife, mom, concerned citizen of the earth. Striving towards intentional living rather than blindly following. Former Education Specialist for a corporation, I have now taken a step back to spend time with my family and work closer to home. Hoping to reduce our waste through refusing, reducing and reusing so that we will not have to recycle as much. Also, I love to explore zero-waste fast food and take pictures of my sucesses. I'm a fan of British comedies like Red Dwarf and Black Adder, Kevin Smith and his movies, Asian food, documentaries, biographies and going to Las Vegas on vacation. If someone told me I could only listen to the Beatles for the rest of my life I would die happy.

  1. Happy new year Stephanie! I started to do yoga last year and I plan to continue this year. I just love it and I feel so much better. I find it great for improving my strength, flexibility, balance and even my cardio. Best of luck with your new workout plan.

    • Happy New Year Susan 🙂 I love yoga but rarely get a chance to do it. Thankfully the gym we joined does have some yoga classes. I might get to drag out my barely used yoga mat from my horrible garage! You’ll inspire me to attend a class soon.
