It's Been Awhile But I'm Back!
Friday, November 11, 2016
I'm back...I've been juggling life, jumping hurdles and just trying to stay afloat! Being an adult can be a little tough sometimes but you just have to keep putting one foot in front of the other, recognize and be grateful for the good in your life and stop majoring in minor stuff. I've recently turned 55 and decided to jump full speed ahead into doing the things that I keep talking about wanting to do! The last time that I was an active member of Spark I decided that I wanted to share some fitness dvd reviews with you guys! My fitness dvd collection will never stop growing because I really enjoy buying them. I buy many but typically end up really enjoying a select few. I have beginner, beginner/intermediate and intermediate DVD's. I am a person who enjoys fun workouts more than I do the extreme ones, so my reviews will most often be on dvds that are do-able for the average 40ish and above person. So starting this weekend I am going to begin posting regular reviews on the DVD's that I own and actually do. Maybe I will even do a few video blogs. I've also discovered the wonderful stress relieving art of Adult Coloring. At this age in life we are often faced with many challenges that can be emotionally draining! Whether it's our own health issues, the health issues our aging parents face, situations with our kids, jobs, finances, whatever, we all are dealing with something. I've learned that taking care of my emotional health is just as important as taking care of my body physically. I bought my first adult coloring book and box of colored pencils 9 months ago and now I have created my own really comfy coloring space in my home. When life gets hectic I light a scented candle, make a mug of hot green tea, put on some relaxing music and color away. It absolutely takes away any and all stress every single time. I'm still working on reaching my weight loss goal and I know that being an active member here helps to make that journey so much easier!
