Wishcasting

I'm going to do something completely out of character for me. I am going to do Wishcasting Wednesday. I'm not sure how it will go, but we will see.

What do you wish to acknowledge yourself for?

I wish to acknowlege myself for my continuing efforts to healthify (if thats a word) my life. Through-out my four years spent in college I have become a junk food eater and have gained more weight than I like to admit. I got really frustrated with the way I was eating and looking this last year and vowed to do something about it. It has been extremely hard to get out and exercise, but I have started getting better.

I have been biking to work as much as possible all summer. A few weeks ago I started running. I never thought I would enjoy it as much as I have. When I played lacrosse I loathed running before practice. Now I absolutely love it. I feel so free when I'm out. I have also been trying to get back into the routine of doing yoga at least once a week. So far I have only gotten myself to meditate once.

J. and I have been really working on getting our diet back to normal. We have been eating much better than we used to. Not eating fast food and pasta roni every night. I have been feeling a thousand times better since this.

  2. Environmental Soul! What a great blog name.
    Welcome to the wishcasting ... I bet you will like it.

    What Environmental Soul wishes to acknowledge about her healthifying ways, I wish to acknowledge with her.

    Healthifying IS a word, a word I believe you just invented! I love it.

    Congratulations on these positive changes. I think everyone leaves college a bigger person than when they entered, but not everyone takes matters into their own hands.

    And I gotta say, I dreaded starting running, and it turned out to be one of the most joyfulfying (see I can do it too!) things I've ever done. I started for my health, but it is like flying, isn't it?
