    Hi Beth…yep, here it is the first of December and I have some serious goals for myself. Life threw me a lot of hurdles this year (hubby died, mil died, moved the kids across the country, one daughter went away to college, oldest daughter gave me my first grandson on my birthday) Stress is not so good when it comes to packing on extra tummy fat :( I love to work out, but there hasn’t been nearly enough time.
    But I know it is a proven fact that writers who get up, move around, exercise, and stay healthy are more productive, more creative, and less likely to have health problems.
    Toward that end, I have modified my diet. We already went red-meat free two years ago, now the kids and I are gradually working toward a more vegan lifestyle.
    Also eliminating as much gluten from our diet as possible (I have one daughter with celiac disease, and the oldest is gluten sensitive…it is often genetic, so it is worth the effort to eliminate it from the rest of our diets)
    My workouts have to change now that I am no longer working out at my college. More walks (I find taking our 200 pounds of dogs with me provides a good upper body workout and makes it all so much more fun) Aiming for walks on the beach, wet sand is good for the legs, 3x a week.
    So many wonderful things to help me get/stay fit while stirring the creative juices… hiking and kayaking with my 12 yr old son, teaching the 3 yr old to swim, pilates with the teenage girls.
    Life is good…and we can make it better…if we embrace the challenge.
    Thanks for this lovely blog. So glad to see other writers taking care of themselves.

    Pamela Thank you so much for stopping by. What a lot of life challenges have come your way. I am so sorry for your losses. And I admire your positive attitude. I’ve been gluten-free for 2+ years, and mostly milk-free, and sugar-free, mostly. I love chocolate! All your activities sound fun! Good luck! And welcome to the Healthy Writers Club!
