52 Lists Project: Week 7

I have been participating with Chasing Slow and the 52 Lists Project. It's week 7 and we must list the things that make us feel healthy.

{The Good News Translation}
  • walking - I was walking for 30 minutes a day when we were in Ohio, and I felt great! I plan to start walking again when the weather stays warm!
  • cooking from scratch - There is nothing like making a meal from scratch - without boxed food or canned soups!
  • fresh meat - My husband hunts, so we always have fresh deer meat. Venison has less calories and fat than beef, plus it's chock full of vitamins, protein and iron. We also butcher cows and process the beef - steaks, roasts, and ground beef. Fresh meat tastes so much better than store-bought and it so much healthier.
  • drinking water - I drink a ton of water, but I haven't always. I used to drink Diet Coke all day long. I quit drinking Diet Coke for over a year, and drank nothing but water, but I allow myself to drink a glass a day now. I drink 4-8 water bottles a day, depending on my activity level. It makes me feel so good!
  • fresh vegetables - I love when we get to go pick peas, shell them, and cook them! Fresh vegetables taste so delicious!
  • being outdoors - Fresh air has so many benefits - it boosts your immune system, helps your digestive system, and helps you to think clearly.
  • working in the yard - Raking leaves and planting flowers is so rewarding, as well as great exercise.
  • laughing - Laughing and giggling with my husband and kids makes me feel so healthy and so alive.
What makes you feel healthy?

52 lists with Chasing Slow


  1. Yes, I love the cooking from scratch! That is a good one for this list.

  2. So many healthy ways to embrace! I agree with all of them. We miss having fresh meat. My husband is also a hunter but with his ankle surgery, he missed out on much of the season.

  3. I have laughter on my list too! Have a blessed week.
