Crafty, Creative and Fit
I joined Wendy and a group of folks at The Running Quilter and am renewing my commitment to be crafty (not a problem), creative (doing my best) and fit (it's harder as I get older.) I hit the big 5 0 last year. I'm not much for freaking out about age, but as "old" creeps up, at least for me, health and fitness need to move up on the priority list. It doesn't come naturally any more...I need to be more overt about it. I joined the local YWCA last summer and I've been doing pretty well. I feel so much better on the days that I exercise. For me it's about being and staying active and healthy. I'm not a runner like Wendy or my husband, but I've been athletic and strong most of my life and I want to keep my body in good shape. I've been a slacker...lots of good excuses like busy life, demanding job etc. etc., but no longer. I want to live long and live well. The goal is 4 out of 5 days during the week I hit the gym and at least one day on the weekend I get physical...tennis, riding my bike, walking the park...whatever. I can do this! Thanks for the inspiration, Wendy! You can read more about Wendy on her blog. Just click the picture on my sidebar to check her out. Want to join us?
