I am woman, hear me ROAR!

First off, single mom of three boys and you guessed it....they can out run me. And they do, frequently....... while laughing. I can't breathe and run at the same time, let alone laugh. So why am I here?

It's taken me a while to understand that I am my children's greatest asset in achieving a healthy foundation for their lives. And if I take great care of their other assets ( personal belongings, schooling, home, transportation) then i should be taking care of me for them as well, ...

It's taken me a while to understand that I am my children's greatest asset in achieving a healthy foundation for their lives. And if I take great care of their other assets ( personal belongings, schooling, home, transportation) then i should be taking care of me for them as well, even if i don't quite have the motivation to take care of my body for myself.

I looked in the mirror not to long ago and for the first time in a looonnngggg time allowed myself to really look. You know what I mean: REALLY look. To say I've let myself go would not in the slightest do justice to the situation. There has never been any letting go; I've intentionally tortured and hatefully neglected my body to fat, dull, lifeless pieces. Yes, I used it, the "F" word. It's true. I'm not hiding anymore. And the decision was made. I've been unkind to my body and neglectful of myself for waaaayyyy too long, and it ends now!
Our body's were given to us by God to help us and house us while we are here on this planet and it is time to remodel. I'm sorry, Lord, for being selfish and ungrateful in not taking care of the body you've blessed me with. I am fearfully and wonderfully made, because EVERYTHING you make, Jesus, is beautiful!
Unfortunately, I'm not an over-eater...... or I could start with that. I under eat in the food department ( maybe one meal and two snacks a day) and drink Dr. P like it's island spring water. I'm a severe sugar addict. ( and when I say severe, I mean "crying and curling up in the corner or screaming at people" kind of severe) It's ugly. I've lost teeth to my soda pop consumption, have severe acne, about a hundred plus over-weight, and pre diabetic. I'm done with denial. I'm scared snotless, but I'm ready to fight. Here we go!

My Program:
Just started! Right now I'm starting small. Goal #1: Eat breakfast every morning, no excuses. Goal #2: Tryout at least three different home workout styles for two days each in my first two weeks. Must find something that's fun ;) Goal #3: Trade Dr. P and coffee for green tea and water. If caffine becomes absolutely required, black tea will be my solution. ALWAYS have a safe plan in place for when cravings win a battle, because you're in it to win the war. :)
