Someone recently told me about a web site with a name quite similar to my Living Fully Challenge, 12 Months to a Fully-Lived Life, so I had to go check it out. The web site, www.livingfully.com, seems to be primarily about weight loss. However, it’s got lots of great resources for weight loss if you are interested and if you feel that losing weight will help you live your life more fully. Of course, health and wellness and fitness are indeed part of the Living Fully program, and I, for one, could use to lose a few pounds and get in better shape myself.
I have to admit that perimenopause hasn’t been good to me in the weight department, and my work load has kept me from exercising regularly. I used to cycle at least 4-6 times per week, but I’m lucky to go once a week these days. I do try to walk at least once or twice a week, but that’s really not much, and sometimes I forgo the walks for work as well. Lately, I haven’t cycled because my wrists have been bothering me. I was afraid it was carpal tunnel syndrome setting in, but my doc says its “overuse.” So, I need to take breaks and at least walk. Cycling might not be the best thing for my wrists. And in the process of exercising a bit more, I might drop a few pounds — and live my life a bit more fully to boot!
Anyway, I thought you might enjoy the LivingFully.com principles. They are right up the same alley as those I talk about in the Living Fully Challenge, so I thought I’d share them with you. I couldn’t copy them here, but you can access them by going to http://www.livingfully.com/10_Living_Fully_Principal.pdf.
Also, I’ve been listening to some great shows on Conversations with Ms. Claus (www.thefamilyyak.com). I know she has me on her pod cast once a month now, but she’s got some pretty awesome guest these days besides me — and they don’t all talk about Christmas either. (You know I don’t…well, I do talk about Christmas and Chanukah and Easter and Passover and Valentine’s Day and the High Holy Days…and all the holidays!) These guest talk about relationships, the Law of Attraction, laughter, and so many other things. And they always offer great tips for living our lives more fully and more positively. So, if you haven’t subscribed to Conversations with Ms. Claus yet, I suggest you do so now and start downloading her pod casts to your Ipod and listening while you drive or exercise (!) or work. Plus, you won’t want to miss some of the guest she’ll be interviewing in the coming months. I can’t tell you who they are, but they’ve written some super books and you’ll definitely recognize their names.
I know this blog was a bit like a commercial. Sorry, but I really hope you will enjoy the information and find it useful.
