I took the one less traveled by,
And that has made all the difference – “The Road Not Taken” by Robert Frost
As I deal with my journey of pursuing a healthier lifestyle, I know that it’s not an easy journey. That’s why I have the title “The Road Less Traveled” as a blog post.
For many of us, we made a conscious decision to become advocates of good health, whether it’s exercise routines, change of eating habits, other fitness goals. For some, it’s considered the road less traveled. I am constantly reminded of people who have experienced illnesses and/or death to affect their lives. It lets me know that tomorrow is never promised to us and to treat every day like it’s your last.
I experience things in my life personally and professionally that take a toll on me. Just recently (yesterday), in order to some release some frustration, I took advantage of walking on the nature trails around my community. I walked a total of 3.5 miles and my legs were on fire (LOL). I used to walk on a more consistent basis, but I became lazy. As one of my goals, I will try and walk early in the morning before heading to work (flashlight and all), maybe invest in an elliptical machine or continue to go through my exercises DVDs; some that I haven’t done all the circuit training for (LOL).
The weather is changing and we now feel the effects of the fall season. Honestly, I worked up a sweat after that walk, so I slept very well. I need God to help me break the chains of the drive-thru restaurant–it CAN be done (LOL). I can imagine myself working with a little bit more this spring and summer but it will be all toned 😉 Consistency is the key!
In closing, here’s “The Road Not Taken”. Enjoy!
