360° to Just Pure Lovely
2°: Living Life on Purpose, with Memory-Making in Mind

1°: 15 Days of Walking Toward Better Health

In my last post, I wrote about my 360° Just Pure Lovely Project, where I'm making 360 decisions, one degree at a time, until I have completely turned my perspective around, 360°. When Quaker told me about their Quaker Heart Health Challenge, I knew it was the perfect motivation for the first degree.

I have reached an age where staying fit and healthy is no longer a happy subconscious occurrence, but something I actually have to work on and think about. Over the past decade of child-raising, I've let the priority of my health slip while I worried over the health of the kids.

I recently read, "You cannot give what you don't have."  I cannot give motivation, if I am not motivated.  I cannot give inspiration if I'm not inspired. I cannot give love if I do not have love.  And I cannot give me, if I have no energy or health in me.

It's time for me to become healthy! For the next 30 days, I'm committing to something simple:  I will walk or kayak at least 15 times in the next 30 days.  Hold me to it!
