Practical Ponderings

How about this for a practical fact. . . . .
Sleeping burns MORE calories than watching TV.
Now that IS a practical fact!! Here is the calculator to help figure the calories burned for different activities. http://www.lowfatweekly.com/calorie_burning_calculator.htm
As I sat pondering the many practical things necessary for lasting lifestyle change, I kept asking myself 'what does 'practical' really mean for this journey and isn't it different for each person?" I looked up the actual definition of 'practical' on thefreedictionary.com, and here is what it said;
~acquired through practice or action, rather than theory, speculation, or ideals
~involving the simple basics
Wow! These definitions are extremely full of wisdom. How do these definitions resonate with you, right where you are on this journey of change?
What do you think connects it all together?
Have a healthy week. . . . . spirit, mind, body and emotions!

I cannot think my way to lifestyle change. To be practical, I have to ACT my way to lifestyle change. Darn, I hate being practical! ;-)
Happy July, francie
