My Journey to Health

Once upon a time, I played tennis, ran around and ate and drank w/o a care. One day though I woke up to realize that that my actions had taken me to an unhealthy place. I want my mostly lean body back. I want to not crave soda. I want to walk up 4 flights of stairs w/o feeling pain in my calves or lungs. I want to play w/my kids more. I want my healthy life back!

I'm taking my life back, one day at a time. I'm exercising again and trying to eat more healthy. I would love ...
Once upon a time, I played tennis, ran around and ate and drank w/o a care. One day though I woke up to realize that that my actions had taken me to an unhealthy place. I want my mostly lean body back. I want to not crave soda. I want to walk up 4 flights of stairs w/o feeling pain in my calves or lungs. I want to play w/my kids more. I want my healthy life back!

I'm taking my life back, one day at a time. I'm exercising again and trying to eat more healthy. I would love for my children to see that people can turn around and that healthy living is thousands times better than not.

My new mantra: I am healthy. I am fit.

I've read these quotes below and wanted them on my own page:
"Think about how different life could be if you stopped emphasizing the end, the fix or getting there, and began enjoying each step of the way. If one moment was as good as the next. If the goal in life was not to fix yourself but to transform yourself. Here, after all, is a miracle; you are already on the journey. You already know and already have everything you need to continue. Relax, breathe, be kind to yourself and everyone else. Oh, there's one more thing; enjoy the ride!"
(Geneen Roth)

Apostle Paul to the Corinthians: "Do you not know that your body is a temple of the Holy Spirit, who is in you, whom you have received from God? You are not your own; you were bought at a price. Therefore honor God with your body." (1 Corinthians 6:19).

SparkPoints: 16,306

Fitness Minutes: 8,386

My Goals:
I'd like to run 5k w/o walking part of it.

I'd like to have less cushion.

I want to be active with my son and daughter and teach them that incorporating fitness and activity as well as eating a nutritional diet in your own life is a must.

I want my sweet babies to think of the word diet not as a weight loss plan but as the way you eat.

I WILL cut sodas out.

My Program:
I've began to jog regularly for the first time and actually enjoy it. So I'm going to enter in running events. On top of that since water is the only thing that doesn't make me want to gag after any kind of work out, I will eventually cut sodas out of my daily diet.

Other Information:
I'm a homegrown-cradle Texas Catholic Lady minus being any kind of southern conservative.

Do whatever works to cut back on the soda.
I also made myself drink water before I drank any other drink for quite a while and now I prefer water over any other drink.
I gave myself a rule and I do stick by it as I was too weak to give it up completely at first.
==== I can only drink a small glass of soda with pizza.
both are bad but both are "good" and I do stick to it.
Good luck!

Thanks for the blog love & nice comments on my photos. Yes, it's nice to be home (but I do miss the beach!). I'm really trying to get the eating back on track & I'm still sucking down the water constantly :)

How are you doing??? I'm loving the walking, but I need to add strength training. Need to amp up the workouts!

Have a wonderful weekend!
