Taking charge of my health and wellbeing has been something I’ve wanted to do for a long time. I would try here and there only to just fall off, basically, fail. I have felt too comfortable in my life for too long, and I know that this time around is different.
I am a mom of 2 kids, and after having my 2nd in April 2014, I was constantly struggling. As of now, things have gotten better. I can’t say enough how thankful and blessed I am to have what I have now. But there is something inside of me that always wants more. I’ve always been that way.
I realized how important being healthy is because I have 2 boys that need me. I want to be there for them, to see them grow up and be there for all the milestones in their lives. I want them to grow up living happy, active and healthy because they deserve it. I know that in order to give that to them, I have to take care of myself. I need to be that good example.
That is why I decided that I wanted to go on this journey. I not only want to do this for them, myself, but for others too. I believe that accountability is huge in attaining your goals. It’s just too easy to give up when you don’t have another person who is watching you and making sure you are on track with your goals. I know this because I’ve given up so many times with so many things because I always felt alone. But it’s different this time. It’s eating healthier, being active and a positive mind. Essentially it’s being able to really LIVE!
When you aren’t eating healthy, sitting around and having a negative attitude, are you really living? Something to think about…
I’m looking forward to the journey, and hope you will join me.
