Reclaiming My Health

I'm in my 40's and am excited to reclaim my health. A medical situation brought some health issues to light - it's been dealt with and my resolve is strong!

I'm not a patient person by nature (although I'm trying to become one!). Learning to respect the process has been my toughest challenge so far. However, I want to be successful and know that laying a solid foundation now will reap huge rewards in the future.

I'm a mom, a wife, and dog lover. Reclaiming my goals while looking after everyone else ha been my biggest challenge. SparkPeople has been the most effective tool for helping meet those goals!

My long term goal is to run a 5K and eventually complete a mini triathlon.

My Program:
Nutritionally I've really been paying close attention to sodium, typically I'm between 1500-2000 mg/day. I pay attention to fibre and iron as well.
My workouts right now consist mostly of walking.
I do need to add strength training and to increase my flexibility.

Other Information:
I am a mother and a wife, in a very busy family! I love to read and write. Modern Family is my favourite tv show but my music taste varies greatly by mood. I have everything from Neil Young to Macklemore on my phone!
I'm learning to have my own life within the hectic life of a family.

"Vision is not enough; it must be combined with venture.
It is not enough to stare up the steps. We must step up the stairs."

"Time always moves forward whether you move forward or not. Your most effective strategy is to make use of each moment as soon as it arrives.
There's no end to what you can accomplish if you'll just go ahead and get going. Now is what you have, so make now your time to begin."
-- Ralph Marston

"If you believe you can, you probably can. If you believe you won't, you most assuredly won't.
Belief is the ignition switch that gets you off the launching pad."

"The difference between stepping stones and stumbling blocks is not in the event itself but how you think about it and what you do after it.
Every failure and setback can become part of your success or an excuse for quitting or failing.
People who develop the discipline of positivity are both happier and more successful."
-Michael Josephson

Just dropping by to say hello, Sparkfriend! Remember, you don't have to be perfect on this journey in order to make progress! As long as you keep trying...and never quit...you are already a success! Keep doing your best, because you are worth the effort!
Hugs,
Pixie

"Part of abandoning the all-or-nothing mentality is allowing yourself room for setbacks.
We are bound to have lapses on the road to health and wellness, but it is critical that we learn how to handle small failures positively so that we can minimize their long-term destructive effects.
One setback is one setback...it is not the end of the world, nor is it the end of your journey toward a better you."
-Jillian Michaels

"It is rewarding to find someone you like, but it is essential to like yourself.
It is quickening to recognize that someone is a good and decent human being, but it is indispensable to view yourself as acceptable.
It is a delight to discover people who are worthy of respect and admiration and love, but it is vital to believe yourself deserving of these things."
~Jo Coudert

I hope you're having a good weekend so far, Sparkfriend! I just wanted to stop by and share a couple of great quotes with you. Keep pushing to reach your goals, one day at a time. Always believe that you are worth your absolute best effort...because you are!

"My invitation to you is to begin living every moment as though you are miraculous and deserve to live an extraordinary life.
Fake it if you must and keep faking it until it’s real to you. The gift you will be giving yourself is a lifelong journey of discovery, one that is infinite and infinitely rewarding. Begin the journey. Today. This moment. Now."
-Robert White
