I blamed being busy I think. Law School, starting my own business, 4 kids...who has time to be healthy? I realized that without my health, none of that means anything. Now I do want to set a good example for my kids, and be healthy for them. I showed them how to excel at school, and I am setting an example for them of hard work and sacrifice to attain ones goals...but I also want to show them how to be responsible for my own health and well being.
My kids have struggled along with me both financially and personally as I have made this life change....they deserve to enjoy the benefits that will come with it. I have to live long enough and be healthy enough to give them that!
