Refreshing My Life!

I'm pleased with the progress I've been making on changing life habits. Giving up things and doing new things is a challenge to me since I'm so used to doing things out of habit. I'm finally looking at changes as being in my best interest especially on an emotional level, not just the intellectual level. I have much less feelings of deprivation, and my new changes are turning into habits. Now they are things I want and need, not just hoped for. I'm also really embracing the concepts of one step ...
I'm pleased with the progress I've been making on changing life habits. Giving up things and doing new things is a challenge to me since I'm so used to doing things out of habit. I'm finally looking at changes as being in my best interest especially on an emotional level, not just the intellectual level. I have much less feelings of deprivation, and my new changes are turning into habits. Now they are things I want and need, not just hoped for. I'm also really embracing the concepts of one step built on another, baby steps are progress, and no time limit- only progress. I've decided mistakes are made only to educate me and are only a sidestep, not a change in direction. The more I learn about health the easier it is to make choices.

Hi Eileen. We really haven't named the dog yet. It seems that he will become a part of our menagerie. He is getting a bath every Friday my son has to do it and I'm about to take him to the vet cuz he has some patches on him I'm not sure if the hair fell out and its growing back or if it's falling out and just to give them a check up but he is making himself quite comfortable in the house

Eileen, learning to hoop was a gift to myself for my 70th birthday! My first hoop was too heavy too; because I was in a hurry to get one. There's a lot of information on hoops and instruction links on our team page. I don't do much "fancy" but just waist hooping is a good workout and the most fun I have exercising. In good weather in the yard. In bad or hot humid weather inside watching TV. Love hooping with my grandkids! When I started I counted rotations; it took awhile before I could count minutes! Now, it's like walking--or dancing! Bonus of starting is you can practice in both directions from the beginning. One direction is going to be harder but both are necessary to keep your muscles balanced. Have fun! Come on over and say hi to the team!

Thanks for the comments on my blog "my bike ride". I will keep up the work even though I think the biker's pants tend to make you look slender.
