No More Excuses or Pity Parties--Just Health

Within the last year, I have gotten off track to some degree, but I know what I have to do to get back to that place in my life. I don't feel like I'm starting all over again. I feel as though I'm picking up where I left off. I accomplished many things during my pregnancy. I continued swim classes until I just got too uncomfortable to move around. I did the Color Run at 4 months pregnant. I hiked 780 feet at 7 months pregnant. I'm a driven person, and when I want something, and I focus ...
Within the last year, I have gotten off track to some degree, but I know what I have to do to get back to that place in my life. I don't feel like I'm starting all over again. I feel as though I'm picking up where I left off. I accomplished many things during my pregnancy. I continued swim classes until I just got too uncomfortable to move around. I did the Color Run at 4 months pregnant. I hiked 780 feet at 7 months pregnant. I'm a driven person, and when I want something, and I focus just hard enough, I can achieve great things. Now that I'm a mommy to a remarkably wonderful and beautiful son, I want him to see healthy patterns in my life. This year I am focusing on the following:
***I am going to learn to stop negatively talking about myself all the time. My plan to stop is to say one positive thing out loud each day.
***I am going to put God first in everything I do; then my husband and my son. Nothing is more important.
***I am going to refocus my nutritional efforts--menus every week.
***I am going to ensure that I work out a minimum of 3 times each week.
***I am going to make some time for myself. My mental and emotional well-being is just as important as my physical health.
***I am going to treat my body better. I will no longer trash it with junk. I have to make this body last for a very long time. This includes not guzzling sodas everyday.
***I am going to be healthy--body, mind, spirit. Love each day, enjoy my blessings, embrace every moment.

For years, I have desired a healthy life from afar. I would watch others jogging in the mornings, or riding their bicycles, or even picking out health foods at the grocery stores. Finally, one day, after 7 years of smoking, multiple years of eating whatever I wanted with no concern for how I was trashing my body, and spending almost my entire life sedentary, I decided to change it all. I quit smoking February 29th 2012 with my husband. Since that time, we have been eating cleaner and respecting our bodies with better nutrients instead of fast food 3 times a day. We are still working on fitting in all of the fitness we desire, and we are still trying to lose weight and get in shape. However, most importantly, we have built in a healthy lifestyle that is permanent. I say "we" a lot because I couldn't have done any of this without the love of my life encouraging me and helping me accomplish the goals I had always desired for my life.

Hi Caiti
thank you for your comment on my blog.

It was a very sad week. We lost lots of good friends and had to go to and help at funerals. Hope this will be better one.
Love,
Donna
