So Here We Are
So here we are, almost 1/4 of the way into 2011, my supposed “year of change”, and I’m not doing very well. I started off great! Like most at the beginning of this year, I was motivated, got a gym membership, was making meals at home and actually beginning to enjoy cooking again. Then, about 2 weeks ago, my husband had to work late, and I used that as an excuse to go back to my old habits.
I have to face facts. I am 35 years old, and I need to take control of my health if I want to be around to meet my grandchildren some day. I want my children to be healthy and not put them at risk of developing diabetes, bad eating habits and become obese, unhealthy children. I want my husband to be healthier also so he will be around for a long time to come.
I know I’m the lynch pin to all this. I’m the one that decides on our meals, when we eat out and where, etc. I have to “stop the insanity” and take charge of my life, our lives, and change everything.
I have to remember that this will not happen over night. I have to do this in small steps to form healthy habits. I hope that you’ll all follow along with me to help keep me motivated. I won’t be posting before and after pictures, how much weight I’ve lost, my measurements, etc. That’s NOT what this is about for me. If I loose weight, great. If not, that’s ok too. At least I know I’ve made a change in the name of good health. I think that will be my biggest motivator of all!
I may even throw in some photography tips along the way.
Thanks for being here with me! I look forward to the comments, and by the way, I do my best to reply to comments.
