Time To Get In SHAPE!

Have you ever felt like you not only got a sign, but you got slapped in the face with it? All throughout my two week getaway out of town where I first house/dog sat then spent the holidays with my mom I was going on and on to her about how I want to start Yoga in the New Year. It was an encouraged suggestion for me to do from one of my best friends’ ages ago, but now I’m ready to give it a shot. How I fully intended to get with one of my other best friends at least once a week to work out together, but I’m really going to learn to take care of myself better this year. It’s going to be a year of incorporating more health and fitness into my regimen. So I ordered a couple of DVDs for beginners and a Yoga mat to get me started. – Which I’m still anxiously awaiting to arrive in the mail to me.

So with that all settled as the friend I shall be working out with is all on board for Yoga, I came home yesterday evening to discover that I’ve somehow managed to acquire a subscription to SHAPE magazine. How on earth I got signed up, I have no clue. It’s been suggested I could have purchased something awhile back that came with a subscription and I didn’t realize it. It’d be far too soon of an order for my start in Yoga supplies as I have both the December and January/February issues here. Truthfully regardless of how I came into the possession of having this magazine subscription, I’m looking at it as a sign I’m on the right path. A very loud sign indeed, but definitely taking this with great optimism and encouragement of what I’m about to really embark on for myself. After all, what are the odds that I would have a mystery subscription arrive to me when I’m finally really feeling ready to take charge and make a difference in my health?

I’m definitely looking forward to reading each one in its entirety. I’m also looking forward to seeing if more end up arriving in the mail as time goes by. I’ll be sure to soak up the health and fitness information I can get from those. My health is something serious for me to get on track and in order. There’s a lot of diseases and illnesses that run in the family line (on both sides for me really) and I would like to avoid as many as possible. So here I go, starting off my true healthier lifestyle, but cracking open the pages of a magazine geared towards such a thing.
