I want to spend the next year completely spoiling myself physically. I want to learn to do new sports, spend lots of time working out and toning my body, I want to eat healthy, pick up new habits that will improve my health, blah blah blah. I feel like I finally know my job description enough so that I can focus on something else a bit, and for various reasons I feel like this is the year of my body. I posted something before about having physical goals, this is kind of in the same spirit. Some more information: I am healing nicely from a long-term sickness (think like a decade) that I didn't know I had until I was cured earlier this year :) and I have more energy than I have EVER had before and I want to do everything I never did. I want to undo my unathletic childhood and play sports, if I could I would play soccer and basketball but I think it's a bit late for that. What it's not late for is dance lessons and swimming lessons and running....I dunno, mostly individual sports
I am adding vitamins to my regime, I'm starting to wear pretty dresses a lot, I go to the gym regularly...
so what's my question? How do I make this year completely about my body? I want to improve my health and feel beautiful. I'm willing to devote like, 3 hours a day to this, and significant mental resources. I want to have fun this year, the kind that makes me healthier, and not worry about ANYTHING ELSE. I want advice along the lines of 'get weekly pedicures, put olive oil in your hair overnight, do 100 situps/day' What makes this different from a lot of other health related questions is that this is about making this a very intensive part of my year, and about having a lot of fun rather than torturing myself with something I don't want to do, and is about more than just exercise.
I have access to a really nice gym. I am not in the US currently so I don't have access to super-US-specific resources. Like to keep my life 'natural' in that I don't like doing anything too artificial. So don't recommend getting that rhinoplasty I never wanted. Thanks!
