LAINIE'S NEW HEALTHY LIFESTYLE

I have let life pass me by for too many years. Over the past decade, I have done a few things I never thought I would ever do. I went to New York City for a work summit. I've always wanted to visit New York City and was always afraid to go there. The main reason being that I would have to fly there. I got over that fear of flying to make that trip. I never imagined I would ever get over my fear of flying. It's still a little scary, but I know I can do it. A couple of years later, I flew ...
I have let life pass me by for too many years. Over the past decade, I have done a few things I never thought I would ever do. I went to New York City for a work summit. I've always wanted to visit New York City and was always afraid to go there. The main reason being that I would have to fly there. I got over that fear of flying to make that trip. I never imagined I would ever get over my fear of flying. It's still a little scary, but I know I can do it. A couple of years later, I flew again to Memphis this time. I did so much better that time. Then in October 2010, I went on a cruise with some of my family. I was so nervous, but I wanted an adventure. I had such a great time and I want to go on another one. I have let too much of my life pass me by.

In 2013, I went through a lot of changes. My son graduated from college in May. We lived with my sister for five months to help her out financially. It was suppose to be for a couple of years, but I didn't do well living in the country. My son got a job in downtown Savannah as a graphic designer/illustrator with an up and coming company. We decided to move to Savannah. We found a great house to rent. I have my own wing of the house with my bedroom, home office, and my son's studio. It is perfect for us. My whole frame of mind changed. I'm loosing the weight I gained living at my sister's house. We are both getting healthier.

My son has already started eating organic. He's eating more fruits and veggies than he has ever done in his 23 years. I am so proud of him. I'm do the same, but I can do better. We will be working together to continue eating organic and eliminating processed foods as much as possible.

We are also working on exercising more. I love walking, but there was no place for me to walk in the country due to my fear of snakes. Now, we have a pretty good neighborhood to walk in. Plus, there are several parks to walk in. I will definitely be upping my time walking. I work from home and work long hours, but I can take as many breaks as I want to. I will be going for a walk in the morning and afternoon. I will also be doing a Walk Away the Pounds workout 3-5 days a week.

This is definitely going to be the year for me to get healthy. I want to get off some of the medication I am on. I know I can do it. I will have to work hard for it and I am determined.

"My will shall shape the future. Whether I fail or succeed shall be no one's doing but my own.
I am the force; I can clear any obstacle before me or I can be lost in the maze. My choice; my responsibility; win or lose, only I hold the key to my destiny."
