IT'S TIME TO START MAKING SMALL CHANGES FOR A HEALTHY AND MORE ACTIVIE LIFE!!
This is my third year on SparkPeople. I have made some progress; but still have a ways to go.
This year my goals are: To learn to cook and eat healthier foods. Learn to step out of my comfort zone more. To exercise 5 days for at least 10 minutes a day. Drink 8+ glasses of water a day.
My daughters are my motavition!
I wanted to be a better role modle, for them. Want to feel strong and healthy and to feel good about myself.
In the last two years: I have lose 38 pounds, dropped a couple of sizes. Learned that I feel better when I exercise. I have also noticed that when I exercise my moods are much better and I'm much more enjoyable to be around.
Also, there has been alot of struggles. It is aconstant struggle for me to exercise. It is hard for me, to exercise by myself, when no oneelse in my family is. So, I have to find something that I really enjoy doing, so I will do it by myself. Stress and mindless snacking, has also been a struggle.
I will Keep Pushing Forward and Never Give Up!
