Living to Lose or Losing to Live

I am a speech and language therapist for pre-K through 12th graders. I am currently working on my master's degree in speech and language sciences. I am married with two children. My excuse for not taking care of myself is that I don't have time to do what I need to get healthy. But as I get older and continue to live unhealthily, my body is paying a huge price. My health is deteriorating and I feel so much older than I am.

10 minutes a day faithfully can make HUGE results. I too have to some exercises I have to do for physical therapy. Its how I got into yoga. I wanted to do yoga about a year ago but some in my circle said how bad it was so I stayed away. At physical therapy I was ordered to go "Or be old before your time". LOL!! I've found a Christian yoga teacher. WOO HOO!!!

I like your page with the lady walking. Its also bright and cheery.

Have a great week.

Glad I found a real buddy to do this with! I'm a phone call away if you need help in the motavation department. BTW-How is Holly? emoticon How are the kids doing? Maybe I should have asked that in the other order. LOL!!!

Hi, I saw your introduction on THE SPARK private team. I can certainly relate to insufficient time to take care of my health needs so I understand what you are up against, of course you have me beat since you are also working on a Masters. I am trying to focus on my fitness but getting back to a workout routine, starting out by doing 10 minute spurts on the treadmill ---20 0r 30 seems hard to fit in, so I break in up over 2 -3 phases throughout the day. Since I've been on spark for 2 years, I've learned that every little change does make a difference, we just have to take baby steps to get to our goal.

Congrats on the 12# loss!
