Enough already....

I am trying to learning healthier ways to take care of my body.  I loved hiking and sightseeing for these last two weeks and I am feeling a renewed enthusiasm for strengthening my body so I can continue my improvement.  Here is the hassle.  Many of these websites go on and on and on telling me I am doing it all wrong without telling me how to do things right, according to them.  I just spent 30 minutes listening to a woman ramble and ramble and ramble with no real information on how to do things differently.  The kicker, many of these are infomercials, meaning to get the answer you have to pay to get it.  Plus the information is conflicting.  One says the most important meal of the day is breakfast the next recommends skipping that meal altogether.  Or says you can have breakfast at noon.  The only way I have breakfast at noon is if I wake up at 11:30 which just doesn't happen.  Insomnia often means I can't sleep-in either.  Today, I did buy a work out program that I actually found suggested on several different websites.  Hopefully, the same person doesn't own all the websites I checked out.  I love looking things up.  When I was first married my only resource was the library with this wonderful thing called a card catalog that lead to lots of books.  Now, I'm kind of used to putting in a search request.  Look over a half a dozen pages and usually find some fairly decent information if you know how to look it up.  This is why I have a resource page for both books and web pages.  I like to share what I learned.  I have this theory, I can't possibly live long enough to make all the mistakes myself, I hope to learn from someone else and maybe get ahead of the fault line.  If I do make mistakes, I like finding information for a different way to solve a problem.  I think that is one of the benefits of counseling, I was given new information on how to look at living.  I was also blessed with counselors that gave me home work and expected me to make changes.  I joke that counseling is a bit like changing a car engine on the freeway.  Yup, just that complicated and difficult but so worth it. All the web pages on good health remind me I need to sleep.  Good night.

Good night moon.
