It hasn’t been easy but I am loving the way I feel. I had a little mishap last Saturday and dislocated a rib. So, this week I elected to skip yoga because I had almost no movement in my right arm and I skipped upper fix. I felt yucky, sluggish and grumpy all day long.
So, here are a few things I learned. I love working out. I don’t love the 5 am time. I would rather be sleeping. However, I do love waking up, working out and then getting ready for my day. I feel accomplished. I feel successful. I feel positive. I feel energetic.
While I am still struggling with eating the rightfoods, I can report I have lost over 30″ over my body. My clothes fit better. I walk taller. I am more aware of my body than ever before.
Let me just say no one has it easy. If you want the change you have to make it happen for you. I have plenty of excuses and trust me I still try and use them sometimes.But, I am only hurting me by using them.
I have really full days. Just during one week we have 10 therapy appts. Add those to the many other responsibilities like the 4-8 loads of laundry a day, cleaning the house, doing homework with kids, cleaning bedrooms, dropping off 16 kids at various schools at different times and picking them up and tending 3 additional children, I have a lot to do. Now, lets be clear I am not trying to make myslef sound amazing by doing the normal load for our family. I am just trying to let you know this isn’t easy for me either. I had to figure out a time to fit this in and giving up precious sleep time is the only way. This is really hard becaise we dont get the chance to sleep through the night. We still have a few children that wake up and need tending.
I have committed to changing my life. For the first time, I am not changing it for anyone but ME. You can do this too. I am not special. I just want a better, healthier life…doesn’t everyone?
Get off the couch today. Make a small change today it will impact you for a lifetime.
