Re-Learning How to be Healthy

I am a married stay at home mom to an amazing four year old boy. My husband is supportive and studying exercise physiology. Part of my desire to work out other than for health, energy, and weight loss, is to be able to keep up with my husband. I also want to be a good lifestyle role model for my son in order to give him the tools and confidence to live the healthiest life he can.

I am a married stay at home mom to an amazing four year old boy. My husband is supportive and studying exercise physiology. Part of my desire to work out other than for health, energy, and weight loss, is to be able to keep up with my husband. I also want to be a good lifestyle role model for my son in order to give him the tools and confidence to live the healthiest life he can.

I want to feel good, inside and out. But its not just about losing weight, though that is desirable. I really want to feel good internally. I want to be able to run without getting winded in the first minute. I want my son to see me as a healthful role model. I want to be able to hike, jog, climb with my husband. But mostly I want to gain confidence in my own abilities to lead a healthy lifestyle.

Feb 2012 Update: I fell off the spark wagon for a while but managed to mostly maintain my weight. After a long while of trying, my husband and I just found out we are expecting. The stress of trying to get pregnant combined with nervous eating and holidays/traveling brought me from 165 to 172, which isn't too bad, but I want to get control of my eating early on before it gets out of hand. I'm going to keep track of my weight gain here to make sure I don't balloon like I did with my first child.

Thanks! Good for you for using your local farmer. I had organic milk the other day for the first time and it was like liquid gold.
I thought I was being mean by depriving her of treats once in a while. But, the truth is I'm a better parent for not giving in. I have her life in my hands. So sometimes you just have to say no. She can't tolerate even the small amounts.
I recently started using coupons. If you find the right website (here in the south it's called southernsavers.com) but wherever you are they should have one that fits. But it will do all the work of coupon matching for you. Using it for toilet paper, shampoo, dog food, laundry det. etc, has saved money that can go towards the healthier foods. And I will be so happy when the farmers market comes to town and I can have my own little garden too!

Hello :) Thank you for commenting on my blog. If you need to rattle, let me know. Demons from childhood are ridiculously hard to shake, and I know its hard. Just worry about you, because nobody can love you like you can, nobody can make you happy like you can and nobody deserves for you to be happy like you do!

Happy Sparking.

Hi, I saw your comment on my freinds page regarding vegetarism. I felt like I was reading my own. I go on and off again veg, but, I have cut out most meat, especially processed. It is about health for me too, I do eat the lean meat occassionally, and can go about a month without any. (I have to have eggs, cheese, and fish though.) It really sounds like you and what you wrote.
My freind turned Vegan over a year ago and I have no clue how she does it. The prob with her is, I don't think she balances her veganism. I see her eating two veggie patties and tomatoes for breakfast and then anoth two patties with whole wheat bread for lucnh. Occassionally a baked potatoe. She doesn't seem to expand on the recipes and bounties out there now a days. HOwever, veganism is way too drastic for this german girl who grew up with butchers in the family. My dad was the only one of his brothers who wasn't a butcher. LOL.
Nice meeting you
hugs heidi
