It has been a long time since I worked out or did anything physical (other than being the mommy of a 5 year old). To be completely honest, I hate to work out. The thing I hate most about it is wearing shoes. Weird, I know. Then there is the fact that I have my daughter with me 24/7 and the fact that I just don't want to join a gym.
Yes, I certainly have created a lot of obstacles. Still, I'm getting older and I want to be healthy and fit. I eat a healthy Nourishing Traditions style diet. Which I have to say is the most delicious way of eating. Now if only I could get myself moving, right? The vertigo is finally waning and I think I have found the secret.
Wii Fit! Oh my gosh, this is so fun! I actually look forward to working out. And I don't have to wear shoes. I go for a run through this cool park and I'm barefoot. Loving that! I get to hula hoop and have even earned a super hula hoop game. I tried the step aerobics and confirmed what I already knew, I hate step aerobics, so that will be something I never do. But the rest of it, at least what I've tried so far, is FUN! I still can't believe I'm saying this.
Then just for giggles, and the fact that there are no shoes involved, I started the yoga class offered at Village Home on Thursdays while the Princess is in her Village Life class. It was an awesome yoga class and I look forward to next week. I have to say after two days of Wii Fit and a day of yoga, I'm feeling pretty sore and really great!
I also wanted to share that I tried Aliceson's favorite salad with a slight modification (blue cheese instead of feta because that's what I had on hand). I made a giant version to have for dinner and I have to agree that this is YUM! Thanks for sharing it Aliceson!
