A new me!!

I have not done that well in 2013 so decided for 2014 that I would try to do better. It seems I would lose 5 lbs each time I did the 5% challenge and then would gain it back during the breaks. I am rejoining the challenge team again but plan to try to do better with my thinking this time. I've just been too lazy and this has got to stop NOW!!

I have not done that well in 2013 so decided for 2014 that I would try to do better. It seems I would lose 5 lbs each time I did the 5% challenge and then would gain it back during the breaks. I am rejoining the challenge team again but plan to try to do better with my thinking this time. I've just been too lazy and this has got to stop NOW!!

Plans are to walk more and do more core exercises. I am hoping this will help my back which has gotten in bad shape the last few months. I've noticed I've not been motivated to do much of anything so maybe if I go to bed thinking I have to get up and walk first thing in the morning that it will help.

I have already started eating better have cleared out sugary foods out of the house. I'm trying to eat more cereals for breakfast. Hubby usually cooks breakfast but he loves his ham, sausage and eggs too much. Course he doesn't have the problem with weight or high cholesterol, etc. so I need to quit being lazy about that and just put my foot down with myself and eat better.

I'm so hoping this will be a better year. Once I start the back injections to block the pain, I think I will feel more motivated and want to get out and walk more.

Life is to short to wake up in the morning with regrets. So love the people who treat you right, forgive the ones who don't and believe that everything happens for a reason. If you get a chance, take it. It it changes your life, let it. No body said it would be easy, they just promised, IT WOULD BE WORTH IT.
Wishing you an extraordinary June.
