Strength training and exercise increasing as I can.
Training for 5K. : ) Never thought I would enjoy running but LOVING it!
I am 26 with 2 great highly ACTIVE boys. I love them and my husband more than anything. I took me forever to realize I loved them and didn't care about myself. I finally realized that it is easier to care about others when you care about yourself first.
Looking to adjust my life, make my self better for those that I love! Which includes myself! : )

Where there is desire there is gonna be a flame Where there is a flame someone's bound to get burned But just because it burns doesnt mean you're die You gotta get up and try. Try ~~Pink
“You can talk with someone for years, everyday, and still, it won't mean as much as what you can have when you sit in front of someone, not saying a word, yet you feel that person with your heart, you feel like you have known the person for forever.... connections are made with the heart, not the tongue.”
I think this describes our quite well. Have a Wonderful Wednesday.
A new week begins - enjoy every day of it. Drink lots of water . . . Make healthy food choices . . . Exercise . . . Stay connected with your friends . . . Do something you enjoy ("me" time) . . . Get enough sleep . . . I wish you the best week you can possibly have! Sheila
The following tips come from an article on WebMD. They are helping me cope with the urge to overeat so I thought I’d share them with my friends. Sheila
Pause and Breathe: Try this: breath in deeply, hold your breath slightly, and then release. Repeating these simple steps helps you calm and settle yourself. By feeling more grounded, you can then make more conscious, rather than mindless, food choices.
A Powerful Question: Ask yourself: "How do I want to feel one hour (or one day) from now?" This question helps you anticipate the results of your choices. Do you want to contaminate the next hour or day of your life with guilt and regret, or do you want to feel strong and confident?
Carry a Symbol of Inspiration: Find a special object to help you feel grounded and inspired. (I have a little stone with “Just For Today” on it.) Keep your object visible and easily accessible. When feeling triggered, hold onto or look at your object as a reminder of your strength.
Write a Supportive Note: Buy a beautiful card and, as your own best friend, write yourself an encouraging note of unconditional love and support. Praise yourself. Review your goals. Include in your note reminders to use specific coping strategies to manage overeating. Keep your note with you and when you feel the impulse to overeat, find a private space and read your note.
Forgiveness: Forgive yourself. Being accepting and gentle with yourself helps you confidently manage stress and emotional eating triggers. The tendency to be upset with yourself for overeating melts away when you accept you did the best you could and let it go.
Hi, Chelsea ~ I had to laugh when I read your friend feed about forgetting your tracker. I came out of the post office this afternoon and pulled my Fitbit out of my pocket to check it. The seat belt covers the pocket of the jacket I had on so I put the Fitbit in a cup holder - thinking I'd put it back in my pocket when I got out of the car. It was only after walking around Wal-Mart, K-Mart, Kohls, and Target for almost 4 hours that I discovered it wasn't in my pocket!! Just think of all those uncounted steps! I hope the first day of our challenge went well for you. Sheila
