Back On! (For the Fifth Time or More)

Wednesday, July 10, 2019

So Spark Fam,

I know I come and go, but this morning, I woke up with new determination and a commitment to stick to a healthy life style. I am so fat, (How fat is she?) that I look very pregnant. And people tell me so.

These last few months, I've been focusing on movement because even walking was a struggle. It sucked. I couldn't get out of my chair and walking a few yards, without sounding like an asthmatic. It was very sad and concerning.

Now, when I'm at the park, I can run after my kids, something which the other parents find rather shocking and amusing.

I am ready to make life choices that won't make me insane. My plan looks simple: I'm committed to walking or light jogging three times a week at the park for 30 minutes to an hour. I have also been cleaning my house regularly, which has always been a goal. The house is not perfect, but I am happy. It turns out, my son and I make a great cleaning team. Plus, I get some much needed movement and peace.

I am also committed to making some sacrifices, like processed foods for whole foods. Like feeling hunger between meals and only eating when I get light-headed.

This time, I"m not hoping for some idealistic body, like I have in the past. I just want to be able to move and reduce the stomach. Well, a lot needs trimming down.

I have no rewards system or goals, other than being able to move more (and bend down to tie my freaking shoes). My health is bad, folks. Real bad. But the truth is that it can get worse, and it's past time to turn things around.

Well, on somewhat upbeat note, I hope you all have a blessed day!

    Good for you, trying to turn things around. Each day is a new day and a day for choices that we are accountable for. Keep trying whole foods and fresh foods. You'll be amazed on how sweet they are and how once you give up a lot of processed foods that you won't want to go back to processed. Just take one day at a time. Little by little. One change at a time. Remember every day is a new day. Use reminders and you'll see how these thoughts will become your daily thoughts.

    You can do this, and you'll be glad you did.

    I understand you! And like you I am back again....and that’s what is important, we are not giving up, so you will be able to run after your kids and move easier and maybe feel better, depending on your health issues. You’ve got this emoticon emoticon
