While it's all good and well to be working on getting our homes sorted out, it's good to remember we have 7 pillars we use for building our homes........ one of those happens to be keeping good health (Pillar No 4). Sometimes we women tend to so busy tending to everyone else we forget we have a house of our own - namely our body, which also needs to be maintained!! Without good health we soon begin finding it difficult to keep up. Particularly as we move into our 40's, 50's and 60's.......... little things begin to change, or we become less active, more indulgent ...... I'm sure you have some idea of what I'm talking about here!
We are just coming out from Winter here, which is usually a time I tend to gain a bit of weight and loose fitness........ This time it's not as bad as last year when I discovered I had gone from a size 10 in my mid 30s to a size 14-16 in my early 50s!! I got onto it, but I don't do winter well!!! I'd be a basket case if it went any longer....... still, I have about 5-6kg I need to loose to make things easier on my knees and hips, and my fitness level is pretty low!! I wonder how many of us with all the extra stresses we carry today, could honestly say we have a healthy immune system, that our bodies have a reasonable to good level of fitness??
So I'm on a bit of a mission this month to make sure I do a bit of "housecleaning" with my own body........ a revamp of the mealplan to ensure I'm adding in more vegies and fruit to my diet, reducing my beloved caffeine input (which I tend to rely on as a replacement at times for good nutrients ) , getting my muscles working again........ although I have to say they have been very busy this weekend getting the vegie patch weeded and plowed up and planted with numerous seedlings and seeds. What do you think of our bit of paving we did at the front of the house...... and Pete put up the old wheels as a border.....
