Thursday Thirteen

This one will probably be crap. Am posting late and am tired and I heartily apologise.

Thirteen Things I have done this past week to get healthy.


1. Swam 1000m

2. Played tennis

3. Walked to and from work

4. Joined the "wellness program" at work

5. Played more tennis

6. Cycled to and from work

7. Turned down junk food (but accepted alcohol...)

8. Ate apple and carrot sticks instead of tea cake at morning tea

9. Smiled when I didn't feel like it (does that count?)

10. Thought about joining a softball team (that's as far as that one went)

11. Looked into doing a detox (but the kit cost $60!!!)

12. Planned to do more exercise next week

13. And to eat better food.

OKAY, SO I STARTED SCRAPING THE BOTTOM OF THE BARREL FROM 9 ONWARDS. JUST BE HAPPY I'M HONEST - I COULD HAVE MADE UP ALL MANNER OF CRAP AND YOU'D BE NONE THE WISER!!!

No tea cake in a morning? You must be very brave because there's no way I could give up tea cakes!

My TT is up!

What is a tea cake? Well done. Keep it up. You must feel very accomplished.

Actually, from what I've read, smiling is great exercise, and it doesn't make as many wrinkles as a frown. So it is a two-fer--great for attitude and easy on the face.

Thanks for visiting my TT.

Thanks for coming by to see my TT! Yours was definitely not "crap" -- I really liked it. I want one of those tea cakes! My mama makes such good ones!

Can't understand how I missed commenting here earlier. Thank you for visiting my 13. I can't be doing with all this healthy stuff, I felt far better when I was a slob LOL.

I am so jealous! My short list might involve the cake as a healthy alternative to my usual chocolate chip muffin! LOL

I LOVE tennis. My racket is around here somewhere...

;)

Great list!

I, too, am in the business of getting "healthy" these days.... matter of fact, that is what my blog is set up for. But that can't be the ONLY topic... which is why today I joined Thursday Thirteens!!! OH! And smiling is the BEST one you've got -- cuz if you do it when you don't feel like it, you can turn your whOle day around! GOOD JOB! :)

Well done! Actually thinking about doing something good is half the battle, I say. I have a friend who is a doctor and she says detox programmes are a complete waste of time. Our bodies undergo detox every day thanks to our kidneys and our liver. So save yourself the $60 :)

Thanks for visiting my site..I will link to yours.

First time visitor as well...I'll be back.

My family (well, parents now) have lived in the same house for 26 years and they found a box they never unpacked...silver and stuff. m

Don't get down. I'm not sure I accomplished 13 steps toward anything this week, let alone all toward 1 goal.
