Health Journey Update – 10/30

Well, it’s been quite awhile since I have checked in and updated my “health journey,” so I thought it was about time.  Things have been crazy, and not necessarily in a good way.  Being unemployed sucks, and it has played hell with my motivation to get healthier.  Plus, the weather here has taken a turn for the worse, like I knew it would eventually.  Lots of wind and rain lately, and I just haven’t been able to muster up the motivation to go hiking.  But here is picture from a recent hike that I wanted to share with you.

So, due to the weather, it looks like the hikes have been curtailed for awhile.  But that will not stop me!  Even though I haven’t been exercising like I wanted to, I still haven’t gained back any weight!  That is the one saving grace right now.  🙂

So what’s next?  Well, I mentioned earlier in a post, when I started this health journey, that I love to dance and used to be a Zumba instructor.  So I will go back to using my Zumba exercise DVDs.  And I am adding another type of dance back into my repertoire – BALLET!  I used to take classes in ballet, both in middle school, and then again in college for PE credit.

I was reminded of how much I missed it when I sat in on my youngest daughter’s ballet class last Friday.  I hadn’t given it much thought … until I sat there and watched the teacher and her class.  I missed it so much!  So I thought, “Hey, why not add that back into my exercise program?”  So I did!

I ordered a ballet DVD from  And I can’t wait until it arrives!  🙂


Yup, that’s the one!  Why not join me?  You can click on the link above, and order your own  copy … and then let me know if you like the workout.

So what is your favorite workout?  What are your tips and tricks to maintain motivation?  Go ahead … share in the comment section below.
