Slice of Life Tuesday



Today is Slice of Life Tuesday – the weekly writing challenge hosted at “Two Writing Teachers”. I have been absent for some time from taking part, and have really missed this wonderful community of teachers/writers. Time to rejoin!


Today is the first day of school. A new start for so many.

After 13 years as a student, 4 years at university and over 30 years as a teacher, the day after Labour Day was always a start of a new year and a time for renewal. This day still resonates as a fresh new start, even though I have been retired for four years.

I thought it a perfect time to start fresh on getting healthy. I needed to make changes and John C. Maxwell said it so well:

You’ll never change your life until you change something you do daily. The secret of your success is found in your daily routine.”

It goes without saying then “Insanity: doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results.
It comes down to changing my ingrained habits – habits that have resulted in an unhealthy lifestyle.

I need to add daily exercise, more fruit and vegetables and more water. It means eating less bread and treats.

I’ve had enough. I need to lose weight, improve my flexibility. I want to write and create daily.

So for the next 100 days, I plan to:

~walk 10,000 steps daily and find other ways to exercise and move

~shake up my eating habits

~write daily, even if it’s only 55 words

~create art daily

~have more fun, get together with friends more often

  1. I love a specific to do list! I totally agree. What you do every day is more important that what you do once in a while. I’m glad you’ve added writing to your list and I look forward to reading more of your posts.
