My Journey to Health

Back in my younger days, I played tennis, ran around and ate and drank w/o a care. When I started having fertility issues, I also started gaining weight. One day though I woke up to realize that that my actions had taken me to an unhealthy place. I want to be health again. I want to be (mostly) soda free. 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 ...
Back in my younger days, I played tennis, ran around and ate and drank w/o a care. When I started having fertility issues, I also started gaining weight. One day though I woke up to realize that that my actions had taken me to an unhealthy place. I want to be health again. I want to be (mostly) soda free. 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.

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: 24,092

Fitness Minutes: 12,170

My Goals:
I want to run a 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.

Oh year, I will say it again. Be true to yourself!
Know your own strength and weakness.
Just take it a step further and forgive yourself when you fail.
Don't beat yourself up continuously. We all make mistakes.
Hope you have a good day and a great weekend!

Thank you for the good wishes, but I suppose you're the one who's been scarce around here. I've been online as often as ever. I've seen the appropriate doctors and they all say I should heal up and that I have no permanent-type damage.

Hey, did you ever get that Cabbage Patch Packet?

“Whatever course you decide upon, there is always someone to tell you that you are wrong. There are always difficulties arising which tempt you to believe that your critics are right. To map out a course of action and follow it to an end requires courage.” – Ralph Waldo Emerson

Yes, you can do it!!

I have learned that it's not what I have in my life, but who I have in my life that counts. So grateful you are there for me. emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon
