Jill – Doing less and achieving more

I am a person that tries to live with intention.  If I put my mind to something I usually achieve it. If I try hard, I normally experience some version of success. This is why I find it interesting and pleasing to notice results and to be feeling as good as I do while for the last month or so I have not been really focused on losing weight or getting more fit. I have been focussing on having fun, playing the sports I love, choosing the activities that keep me active with friends (sports tournaments, running, gym time etc) rather than the more inactive activities (going for lunch, board games etc).

This has helped me in some many ways:

  1. I am having so much fun!
  2. Feeling more successful in the sports I play
  3. Seeing and feeling that my body is more fit
  4. Feeling much healthier
  5. Never board with working out!
  6. Loving myself for exactly who I am

I used to bug my husband because he never liked going to the gym and always said he preferred to stay fit by playing sports. I always disagreed and said you have to work out at the gym in order to be and stay fit.

Well lately I have proven myself wrong…that’s right sexy pants if you are reading this…and you better be…you were right!

Don’t get me wrong I still go to the gym from time to time but not very often. Instead I do a weekly choreographed cardio dance class, I play volleyball for about 2.5 hours a week, I play ball hockey every week and I try to get out running at least once a week. As per usual I try to eat healthy and maintain appropriate portion sizes but I do indulge from time to time. After all life is too short not to eat chocolate!

This weekend I am in my first ice hockey tournament! I am scared and excited. It is for charity and lovely Steph has promised me it is not too intense…I don’t know if I believe her but I am sure I will survive.

I will post pictures early next week.

Gotta run…I will try to post more often. I cannot believe how long it has been since my last post.

Hope you’re living every day happily!
