Simple healthy living - March is National Kidney Disease Awareness month

I want to be healthier. I have always been overweight and I would like to have more energy a fully experience life.
MY MANTRA: I refuse to go on a Diet anymore. I spent about 20 years being overweight. It is crazy to think going on a 1 or 2 month “diet” will change me for the rest of the life. No fad or product will work either. In order to be healthy I need to change my lifestyle. I need to put my needs before the superficial concerns of society and the media. They will never value my ...
I want to be healthier. I have always been overweight and I would like to have more energy a fully experience life.
MY MANTRA: I refuse to go on a Diet anymore. I spent about 20 years being overweight. It is crazy to think going on a 1 or 2 month “diet” will change me for the rest of the life. No fad or product will work either. In order to be healthy I need to change my lifestyle. I need to put my needs before the superficial concerns of society and the media. They will never value my happiness or health. They want to sell me things that may not benefit me. I want to live my life, be happy and share my love and blessings with others. This will not happen until I love and respect myself.
Therefore, I will put good foods into my body. It will make me physically and mentally healthy. I will not eat to cover emotional pain. I will rely on my friends and spouse. I will also be there when they need me. I will also enjoy less then healthy choices in moderation and when I do, it will be my choice to eat it not habit or emotions. I will also be more active. I will let my body do what it was made to do, put effort into what is hard and respect my body’s limits, but still challenge myself. I will watch less stupid TV shows. It keeps me from doing things that I enjoy more. I will try to learn more everyday.

How will I do this? I will make small changes until they become new habits. Simple things like eating healthy snacks, drinking less pop, and more veggies. I will call a friend when I feel down. I will buy healthy snacks, measure food until I am used to what a portion size is. I will get involved in physical activities. I will concentrate on what is positive and try to change the negative. I will not read magazines that reinforce negative images and read more books that promote my new goals. I will belong to supportive communities like Sparkpeople and its Sparkteams. Of course, I am in the middle of my path for this journey. But I plan to experience each step until I reach my goals.

Thank you for reading my last blog - actually, the problem was not so much the *length* of the commute (it's been average for me the past few years and generally tolerable - thanks to modern car amenities that I now have :) ) - the problem lied in the fallout from three out of four major bridge crossings being rendered unavailable for use - making getting around a sheer nightmare!

Just got the good news this morning that the two flooded roads have now been reopened - WOOHOO! Just when I figured the snow would no longer be an issue - the *rain* monster rears its ugly head! No fun living near a notorious flood plain, that's for sure!
