Love of my life
Shared Fitness Tracker
I blinked and time from October to January just went flyin' by. I thought about being healthy-ier more than BEING healthy-ier... =) It's ok. It's all about choices and that is what I chose, no excuses. However, the choice today is gear up, reboot, refocus and just DO it! I saw the coolest video of a woman's weight loss journey (with pictures n music) and it inspired me. I am all about enjoying the journey because I know what it is like to lose all the weight (major focus) and then get to maintenance and blow it. So, in staying with the theme of enjoying the journey, I am going to do just that with the family as we move forward and I am not going to shy away from taking pictures and filing them away and come some time in the future, show OUR video. I think that is going to be more fun than a size pair 6 jeans! =)
Happy 2012 peoples!!!!
I just cut and pasted my original intro into a blog
I am Movin' On Up outta that hole I had dug myself into and it feels GREAT!!
I am no longer IN THE HOLE but up outta there and walking forward. Praise be to God! So, as of Aug 12 2011, it is onward I go and enjoying every step of the journey.
My family is my priority and we have made many, many changes so far. We are no longer 100% couch potatoes. We are not walking/running marathons either, so the work is still to be done but the great news is, it is BEING DONE, no longer just 'thinking' about it while sitting around!
My health is on the right road and I am getting stronger everyday. If you are reading this and you have health issues, don't give up, there are ways to get better, you just have to WANT it. I stayed on the pity pot for a very long time before I finally took action. Now, there is no stopping me. I have SAMTER's, allergies and auto-immune disease.
Bring my blood allergy levels down to healthy range. (working on it)
Exercise more. (doing it)
Eat healthy. (doing it)
Eat less. (YEAH, doing it)
Stretch myself from my comfort zone. (Getting out there more. Doing it)
Eat foods I am not allergic to. (THIS IS HUGE, because that means no bread/noodles/stuff like crackers!)
Walk. (Doing it)
Elliptical. (Doing it)
Use weights for muscle. (not yet)
Drink Water. (not enough yet)
Enjoy every day of my journey because life is meant to be lived and enjoyed to its fullest today, not tomorrow, not later. (YEAH BuDdY!!)

"Who are You, Lord?" He answered me: "I AM." "But who is I AM?" I asked discouraged.
His soft answer filled my heart with fire, because I heard: "I AM Love; I AM Peace, I AM Grace,I AM Joy, I AM the Way, the Truth and the Life, I AM the Light, I AM your comforter, I AM Strength, I AM the Creator, I AM the Alpha and Omega, the Beginning and the End."
With tears in my eyes I asked softly, "But, Lord, then who am I?
While God gently wiped away my tears, He whispered in my ear: "YOU ARE MINE."
