My Journey to Health

Once upon a time, I played tennis, ran around and ate and drank w/o a care. One day though I woke up to realize that that my actions had taken me to an unhealthy place. I want my mostly lean body back. I want to not crave soda. 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 ...
Once upon a time, I played tennis, ran around and ate and drank w/o a care. One day though I woke up to realize that that my actions had taken me to an unhealthy place. I want my mostly lean body back. I want to not crave soda. 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.

My new mantra: I am healthy. I am fit.

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).

Current Status:
BURBANOVSKY is amused. My daughter looked at me like I was crazy several times this weekend when I was dancing away while I folded our laundry and loaded the dishwaser. Talk about a hoot.

Fitness Minutes: 7,423

My Goals:
I'd like to run 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.

HAPPY FRIDAY!! It's the day to find a way to move more, laugh more and enjoy life more Friday. emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

I response to your question, I do a lot of 20 min, 15 min and 30 min exercise time. I exercise in bed before getting up because of my MS and RA. Dancing is great exercise, I can do that while cooking or watching a TV program. I exercise while taking a shower, plus I walk a lot and am doing some serious decluttering and moving out things. When a TV advertisement comes on, get up and do some exercises. It will amaze you how much time you can track.

I hope this has been helpful for you. And I know that exercising helps me cope with a lot right now. So the more I do, the better I feel. As my Mum said, "You can find something good in anything if you just try."

Happy Thursday! Whatever you have been thinking about doing, but have started yet, turn it into "I Did It" Thursday! It sure feels good to do what you know needs to be done.
