Over the last few years, Dave and I have worked on trying to get healthier. We tend to be undone by drinks…Coke for Dave and wine for me (and diet pop, and juice, and…yeah…). We’ve instigated a new rule at Chez Cowbels. For dinner, you must have a glass of water before drinking anything else. So far, we’ve been pretty good, although today I was home alone and consumed a glass of Chardonnay before I remembered.
Another thing we’re trying to do is exercise more. In that vein, we dusted off our Wii Dance Dance Revolution mats last night and played a little. It always amazes me exactly how out of shape I get so quickly. Dave plays disc sports twice a week, while I…do not. I’m doing some kinesthetic physio now which works my core and a few other things, but I need some cardio. Thanks to SocialShopper, I picked up some inexpensive BoxerFit passes for three months at a place near home, en route to work. The idea here is that I’ll either work out before school *snicker…* or on the way home (potentially more likely, although I’m resolved to do at least a month of “bootcamp” style workouts [every morning…whimper…]) We both have pedometers and try to walk at least 5000 steps a day, and we’ll sometimes walk to the grocery store or someplace in our neighbourhood, just so we’ve got a place to go (note to self: walking to McDonalds for ice cream is counterproductive.).
I’m also trying to eat healthier, which seems to be good. Yay!
