Reclaiming My Health

I'm in my 40's and am excited to reclaim my health. A medical situation brought some health issues to light - it's been dealt with and my resolve is strong!

I'm not a patient person by nature (although I'm trying to become one!). Learning to respect the process has been my toughest challenge so far. However, I want to be successful and know that laying a solid foundation now will reap huge rewards in the future.

I'm not a patient person by nature (although I'm trying to become one!). Learning to respect the process has been my toughest challenge so far. However, I want to be successful and know that laying a solid foundation now will reap huge rewards in the future.

I'm a mom, a wife, and dog lover. Reclaiming my goals while looking after everyone else ha been my biggest challenge. SparkPeople has been the most effective tool for helping meet those goals!

My long term goal is to run a 5K and eventually complete a mini triathlon.

My Program:
Nutritionally I've really been paying close attention to sodium, typically I'm between 1500-2000 mg/day. I pay attention to fibre and iron as well.
My workouts right now consist mostly of walking.
I do need to add strength training and to increase my flexibility.

Other Information:
I am a mother and a wife, in a very busy family! I love to read and write. Modern Family is my favourite tv show but my music taste varies greatly by mood. I have everything from Neil Young to Macklemore on my phone!
I'm learning to have my own life within the hectic life of a family.

Success is a Choice
-Unknown
"Today I will make many choices, and each will have a consequence. Today I can choose to tell myself that I am worth the effort, or I can tell myself doesn't matter, I'll do it tomorrow. Today I can choose to journal, or I can choose not to. Today I can choose to drink my water, or I can choose to be
dehydrated. Today I can choose to stay in my points range, or I can choose to hinder my goals. Today I can choose to be more active, or I can choose to take the easy way. Today I can choose to be motivated, or I can choose to tell myself "I can't." Today I can choose success. IT IS MY CHOICE."

Thanks for commenting on my "Pity Party" blog. I appreciate the support and encouragement. I got lots of great feedback and it has given me plenty to think about and consider. One thing I know is that I will never give up on trying to reach my goal, even if I have to change my approach. Have a great day!

"Do not let your fire go out, spark by irreplaceable spark.
In the hopeless swamps of the not quite, the not yet, and the not at all,
do not let the hero in your soul perish and leave only frustration for the life you deserved, but never have been able to reach.
The world you desire can be won, it exists, it is real, it is possible, it is yours."
-Ayn Rand

"Sometimes victory seems so far away because we measure it only by the goal. And end goals can seem overwhelmingly huge, daunting, and just plain hard to reach. But if we start measuring our victories by the smaller choices we make each day, victory won't seem so impossible.....
It's amazing the chain reaction that can start in your life with just one good choice.
Big things are built one brick at a time.
Victories are achieved one choice at a time.
A life well lived is chosen one day at a time.
Oh sweet friend, you are closer than you think to victory!"
-Lysa TerKeurst

Be your own hero, one choice and one step at a time! You might not see visible signs of progress right away, but as long as you keep doing your best, you will make progress and you will be victorious! I'm rooting for you! Remember, you're worth your best effort!
Hugs,
Pixie

"Vision is not enough; it must be combined with venture.
It is not enough to stare up the steps. We must step up the stairs."
