I got this in my email last week:
Over the past 8 years I haven’t logged every workout I’ve ever done, but I surely logged a lot of them. I now regularly log pretty much every single workout I do accomplish. It made me think a little about my Fit by Forty plan.

Today as I was journaling for my wellness I read the following:
You don’t just get well or stay well. There are many degrees or levels of wellness, just as there are degrees of illness.
So, I wondered, Am I Well?

It’s only mid June, so it’s not time for an official Training Plan Tuesday, but I wanted to share my latest challenge.

When I am experiencing pain and dis-ease, I use it as an opportunity to re-evaluate my lifestyle and my environment.
This was one of the statements in a section of the Wellness Inventory I was exploring today. I really like how the word disease is broken up to mean something similar, but different.

Last week I shared my Wellness Vision for Self Love and Responsibility. This week I want to give you some key updates on my progress as well as tell you a few things I have learned about through meditation and my work on trying to better this dimension of wellness.

And just like that it’s June!
I live at the beach and June is usually the time of year when we really start going to the beach and the pool a lot…..but not this year! This year I am not beach ready, nor pool ready, nor socializing ready. I am ready to keep up some consistency! Continue reading “Training Plan Tuesday #15 – June 2020”
Last week I decided to focus on the area of Self Responsibility and Love in order to make sure that MY wellness is a priority. I did this because I felt I have been making bad choices and allowing others’ judgements of me to influence my decision making process. I decided that I needed to be a priority in my own life.
Every semester, when teaching about wellness, I ask my students to first come up with a Wellness Vision for the semester. What would it look like for them to have a well and whole semester? I usually try to give them an example of what it would mean to me…..

For the past week I have been debating on which area of focus to start with for this new attempt to really get my wellness in check. You can read about that here:

Well, I think I am going to stick with my original plan and focus on the area of Self Responsibility and Love in order to make sure that MY wellness is a priority.

For a few years now I have been teaching about and writing about Wellness. I have taken a Wellness Assessment more than once and tried to focus my energies on improving my 12 dimensions of wellness….it hasn’t always worked. I think it hasn’t worked as well as I would have liked because I try to fix things too quickly. I don’t give myself enough time and energy and effort on any one thing. I keep trying to approach this from a holistic attitude and not a systematic one. I fully understand that the concept of wellness is holistic, but we don’t teach it all at once, so I’m not sure why I keep trying to do it all at once?!
