Healthy Thursdays

I have been trying to focus in a few key things this week for getting healthier.

Last week was a four day work week and I walked home three out of the four days. Which is my goal for now, at least 3 days a week I will walk home. I will not meet that goal this week. I will only have two.

My second thing is salads. I am trying to eat a salad every day. Each week I've been making them more elaborate and larger. I'll take a couple pictures to show next week. I know salad and veggies and all that are good for me, but I really dislike the bitter taste of lettuce. So I have been adding lots of other things, like radishes, grapes, onion, etc.

Third, I have been trying to get closer to 7 hours of sleep at night. This is probably the harder of the goals. But I know this is a key to not only getting healthier, but to feeling better also.

As of next week I will start weighing myself also. Yes, I know scary. I don't want this to be about a specific number, but the number is one of the ways to measure things.

I hope all of you can find time to take care of yourselves too.


  1. I think you are taking great steps towards better health. I should do so also. It's really hard if you don't have a kitchen, and now not even a BBQ anymore. But I still can make more salads, and start walking more. Thanks for reminding me, and good luck to you!

  2. Good goals! Have you tried different types of lettuce. Not all of them taste the same. Honey, shoot for 8, that one hour makes so much difference!

  3. GREAT goals! I take spells on salads, and haven't had time but twice this week for exercise. Sleep? I slept about three hours, was awake two, slept a couple more, only because I overslept. Yeah. I have work to do too.
