“Health is not valued till sickness comes.” – Thomas Fuller
I have not made my health a real focus for most of my life. It is by seeing others go through difficulties and knowing I am at an age when the body does not “bounce back” so easily that I am now paying attention.
Baby steps are being taken.
Almost a year ago, I began to exercise regularly – two times a week at first and then three times a week starting this past summer.
The hard part is still to come.
I can list excuses as to why it’s difficult to eat better – cooking for one, limited budget, etc. – but the reality is I have the ability to do this. I’ve just been a bit lazy and, honestly, a bit of a coward.
Healthy eating habits will not start overnight but I’m going to make a conscience effort in the days and weeks to come.
Simple goal: To be able to enjoy my Italy trip – walking, hiking & simply having the stamina to enjoy a day of traveling without a nap.
So here I am today.
Let’s see where my baby steps will take me.
