Maroney Family at Ocean Isle Beach in August 2014
I'm happy that my daughters don't draw me fat.
September 2014 - Me sitting at my desk at home.
Shared Food & Fitness Trackers
I turned fifty years old in May 2015. I have finally figured out how to change my lifestyle. Cooking 90% of the time, keeping a food journal, staying within my calorie/fat/protein/carb ranges, exercise 3x week. I am becoming healthy, energetic, and flexible. I am able to enjoy activities like Just Dance with my 10-year-old twin girls, bike rides with my family at the beach, hiking on mountain trails.
I am blogging because it helps me think through things. It''''s not just a diet, it''''s a lifestyle. The scale has no hold on me, it''''s just one of many measures of my health, energy, and attitude.
If you fall off the healthy wagon for a while, no big deal. Just jump back in when you can. Reread your blogs. Re-dedicate you to yourself. It''s a journey.
Being a good role model for my daughters.
Buying more life insurance at a reasonable rate before I turn 50
Wearing regular size womens clothing
Energetic enough to do the things I enjoy... racquetball, golf, dancing, basketball, hiking, and gardening
Any type of exercise for 1 hour a day, every day. This can include cleaning, gardening, walking, Zumba, lifting weights, Just Dance 2015 with my girls, or anything I do rather than sitting on the sofa.
Making healthy food choices - practicing mindful eating - try new recipes
Remembering that I am a good person, and worthy of love whether I am fat or slender
I have dreams now in which I am slender and healthy!
The only one you are really accountable to is you.
Never feel guilty taking time away from your family to exercise. Your fitness will provide better quality time with them later!
