Here we are in month five of the year. I’m still feeling like health was the right word for 2013, and still feel that there are lots of challenges left. So, what’s in store for this month?
1. Garden – this is full on for spring. Spring vegetables are up, but now I’m looking at how to keep the garden healthy through the long days of summer as well. Looking at mulches, my watering system, soil, etc. Putting lots of physical work into the rest of the garden as well this month.
2. Physical Health – I think one goal for this month is adding in more long walks or hikes. Mr. Kate is finished volleyball season so we are doing more good walks during the work week, but I would like to continue finding longer walks for Bushboy and I to do on week-ends (Mr. Kate works week-ends right now, having days off in the middle of the week). Another goal is to add in more resistance-style work – sit-ups and push-ups, more weights, etc.
3. Work Health – time to get more writing done. It’s been two years since I had an article published and I’ve been doing a lot of writing for my day job while doing editing contracts at home. I love editing, but I would like to get something ready for publication over the next month or so. Lots of article ideas floating around, need to get them down.
So there you have it. Longer days are here, and while being outside perhaps encourages the physical health, it also can encourage lazy days. So, I plan to stay focused with these challenges! What are you doing to stay healthy these days?
