Labor Day, the unofficial end of summer, always gets me thinking about new starts and new goals. I know it’s from the 19 times that fall meant the start of a new school year. I just get rid myself of that association even when school has been in the past for more than a decade.
This Labor Day is no exception. I’ve found myself thinking about what I’m going to do for my health, fitness and writing this fall – basically from now until the start of the holidays. I also have a wedding 6 weeks away. 🙂 That’s always a reason to think about my fitness.
So, this Labor Day I’m going to do a mini cooking marathon. That means I have to choose 4-5 main dishes to make, compose a grocery list, shop and then do some cooking. I’d also like to go to the gym, by the cooking and all may be enough fitness for a day. I also want to make doctors’ appointments in the next couple of months and enjoy my wedding and honeymoon. 🙂
Does Labor Day have you thinking about new goals to work towards the next few months? What are some of your plans?
Happy Memorial Day! Today is about remembering the people who have sacrificed their lives for their country. It’s a gift that should be acknowledge and appreciated and hard to grasp. Memorial Day has a second meaning to many people as the start of summer. I love how the rhythms of the year and of life […]
It’s the same every year. People make lists of goals/resolutions for the new year, and even though they have the best of intentions those resolutions often start falling by the wayside by the time the calendar turns to February. Most years I come up with one of these big lists myself, but this year I […]
Saturday night the fabulous boyfriend and I went to a fun party that was half cocktail party/half piano concert. A friend of ours had vowed on her last birthday that she would celebrate this particular year in her life by performing several classical pieces in front of her friends before her next birthday. And, she […]
We talk a lot here about eating healthful foods and getting exercise. But there are others ways to keep ourselves healthy. I got this idea after sitting in the dentist chair today to get my 6-month cleaning and came away feeling like I had a new set of teeth. I love that post-cleaning feeling. So […]
Sorry for the late post, but Wednesday always seems to sort of sneak up on me and yell, “Here I am!” But I’m happy to report that after one week of my renewed calorie tracking and exercise efforts, I’ve lost 2.2 pounds. That’s 2.2 pounds closer to my eventual goal. Yay, me! As I mentioned […]
When I read Michelle’s post from Monday, I found myself nodding right along with several of her points. You see, this has not been my best year for sticking to the healthy living plan. I can’t even say why other than I simply haven’t made myself do what I was supposed to. Oh, I flirted […]
This Saturday was the first WRW writers meeting of the 2012-2013 season. I missed Cathy Maxwell’s morning session because of a tough work week and car trouble, but I rallied for the afternoon session and am so glad I did. I enjoyed all the socializing, but the pest part may have been that WRW member […]
When I sat down to write this post last night, I was at a loss as to what to write about. It was one of those blah-for-no-reason days, and I wasn’t feeling inspired. But then I thought about one of my pin boards on Pinterest, one called Health and Fitness. Here I pin quotes and […]
I’ve been struck by just how many of my friends have posted in the last week about great times they’ve had with exercise. They don’t phrase it as such, but I’ve seen different friends brag on their Facebook pages about dancing the night away, trying a boot camp fitness course, competing in a duothalon, training […]
