Last week I confessed what I do wrong in maintaining my health. It was a mildly uncomfortable, but helpful, exercise. I hope it prompted you to do the same.
Today, I begin to resuscitate my self esteem. It’s time to celebrate what I do right:
I cook regularly. Michael Polian’s new book Cooked asserts cooking at home is the path to healthy living. I think he’s right.
I always eat healthy at work. I eat roughly half my weekly meals at work. If I’m eating healthy 50% of the time I can screw up more off the clock.
I try new ways to exercise. At different times I’ve been moderately obsessed with jogging, swimming laps (yes, I own a speedo), pounding a heavy bag, weight lifting, and circuit training. I’ve recently begun taking hot yoga classes. A new obsession is blooming.
I stay active. I don’t mean “workout” active. I mean walking to get groceries, working in the yard, playing golf, and generally staying on my feet. I try to reserve sitting for eating, driving, and watching sports.
I keep junk food out of my house. See: Most Important Diet Tip Ever.
Don’t forget to tell me what you do right!
