My Journey to Health

Back in my younger days, I played tennis, ran around and ate and drank w/o a care. When I started having fertility issues, I also started gaining weight. One day though I woke up to realize that that my actions had taken me to an unhealthy place. I want to be health again. I want to be (mostly) soda free. I want to walk up 4 flights of stairs w/o feeling pain in my calves or lungs. I want to play w/my kids more. I want my healthy life back!

I'm taking my life back, one day ...
Back in my younger days, I played tennis, ran around and ate and drank w/o a care. When I started having fertility issues, I also started gaining weight. One day though I woke up to realize that that my actions had taken me to an unhealthy place. I want to be health again. I want to be (mostly) soda free. I want to walk up 4 flights of stairs w/o feeling pain in my calves or lungs. I want to play w/my kids more. I want my healthy life back!

I'm taking my life back, one day at a time. I'm exercising again and trying to eat more healthy. I would love for my children to see that people can turn around and that healthy living is thousands times better than not.

I've read these quotes below and wanted them on my own page:
"Think about how different life could be if you stopped emphasizing the end, the fix or getting there, and began enjoying each step of the way. If one moment was as good as the next. If the goal in life was not to fix yourself but to transform yourself. Here, after all, is a miracle; you are already on the journey. You already know and already have everything you need to continue. Relax, breathe, be kind to yourself and everyone else. Oh, there's one more thing; enjoy the ride!"
(Geneen Roth)

Apostle Paul to the Corinthians: "Do you not know that your body is a temple of the Holy Spirit, who is in you, whom you have received from God? You are not your own; you were bought at a price. Therefore honor God with your body." (1 Corinthians 6:19).

Fitness Minutes: 9,582

My Goals:
I want to run a 5k w/o walking part of it.

I'd like to have less cushion.

I want to be active with my son and daughter and teach them that incorporating fitness and activity as well as eating a nutritional diet in your own life is a must.

I want my sweet babies to think of the word diet not as a weight loss plan but as the way you eat.

I WILL cut sodas out.

My Program:
I've began to jog regularly for the first time and actually enjoy it. So I'm going to enter in running events. On top of that since water is the only thing that doesn't make me want to gag after any kind of work out, I will eventually cut sodas out of my daily diet.

Other Information:
I'm a homegrown-cradle Texas Catholic Lady minus being any kind of southern conservative.

Good afternoon on this wintry Tuesday....it is where I live. The typical Northern, winter weather--no sun, grey sky, everything covered with ice, and cold. Fortunately, it's not below zero and there isn't a blizzard.

I am thinking about getting a scale today. Noticed that my clothes are a little looser. So this is giving me an incentive to buy that scale. And to keep pushing me forward.

Today is the 10th day of 100 days to getting healthier. I have been continuously moving around a lot more. Because of the icy conditions here during the winter, I am doing the Leslie Sansome walking DVD's, as well as dancing. This is the kind of exercises I can stick with, as well as have fun doing them and sing. Plus I get to laugh at myself too.

Yesterday I was in a lot of pain! Oh, the three herniated discs in my back were sending shocks down my arms and legs. I could not sleep all night. Now I feel like a zombie. Oh, I would like to crawl back into bed. But I am making progress on deep cleaning my house, so I am going to keep cleaning/organizing just at a slower pace. If I walk away, it will not be touched.

I am working hard to eat more vegetables. I eat chicken and fish two-three days per week, and lots of vegetables everyday. My stomach is much better now that I have cut out the coffee. My morning beverage is green tea. Making home-made soups have helped me feel fuller. Plus, the soups have taken away much of my cravings for sweets.

Being busy around the house, deep cleaning and re-organizing has taken my mind off of food. It feels so good to not be nibbling on this and that, only to feel guilty of over eating, as well as seeing the scale go up another pound or two. Taking pictures of my house before and after have helped me feel very pleased with the house. And, it is so good not to hear from name being called because my husband or children cannot find something. Now they can--that sure makes me feel the rewards of organizing.

Wow, this is a long note....I will close now, "HAPPY TUESDAY".

Today I am out of bed and deep cleaning my bathroom. I may be moving S L O W, but I am getting the job done. Only the linen closet now needs to be re-organized and my bathroom will be ORGANIZED PLUS CLEAN! emoticon

I may not be moving as fast as I like, but this time I am doing the job the right way. Besides, I am closer to having a clean, organized bathroom, than I was this time yesterday!!! emoticon

Wow, it's a brand new day, that is a gift given to you, a gift to enjoy and discover exactly what special miracles are in it just for you.

Oh, you get so caught up in all the attitude and mind set around us, that you do not see the real beauty that around in each day. We live in a country were we have freedom. I've been in several countries where I had to be very careful and aware of everything I did. I soon realized how great it was back home with true freedom. I am especially joyful because I can walk again. It may not be as well as I could before, but I can walk, just no running this time. And to have a mind that can figure out things, remember things and hold onto memories...wow, that is awesome.

Well, it looks like I am getting better, however, still have to take it easy for awhile. All this is teaching me something, easy does it. Just moving and doing something each day will lead to a giant step forward. It took me a long time to get this fat. I won't get thinner in a few days. Yet, I will if I just keep at it, little by little.

No, I may not be able to do six hours of heavy cleaning, but I can do a 15 min. clean-up, a 27 Fling Boggie, get 2-3 loads of laundry done and do my chair exercises, and feel like a million. Now that's awesome when I think about it.

So you may not feel like doing much today, but you can do something and that something just might be awesome too. Today is amazing Monday--No Excuses Allowed. Today is a Perfect Day to Just Do What You Can and Feel Good.

Hi, Well I finally reached that point where I am sick and tired about looking I do and feeling like I do. This gave me the kick in the pants to start my 100 day get healthy project. Today I am on day 4!! My first two day I over did exercising and paid a price called pain. Today, I did much better and I watching my portion size, plus eating three meals daily, NOT drinking soda, also walking and dancing for exercise. It's only day four, but I can feel my stomach has gone down emoticon emoticon
