Adventure in Living Healthy

So far so good!! Feeling motivated and feeling like things are coming together. Determined to not get discouraged and allow for the "not so good" days

Fitness Minutes: 170

My Goals:
1) Eat Healthier - I would like to lose weight but want to make a lifestyle change so more focused on portion control.

2) H20 ... and not diet sodas.

3) Exercise - starting with 15 minutes a day.

4) Have 2 family days a week - let kids decide what they want to do and play along.

5) House chores done daily so it stops piling up and becomes overwhelming.

My Program:
1) Not get discouraged .... Im realizing there are going to be days that arent going to be as good as others and that is OK!

2) Kids are exercising with me and joining up with a friend to help keep each other on track.

3) Focused on making a lifestyle change and not losing weight. If I change my lifestyle the weight lose will be permanent.

4) Stop procrasting ... take time throughout day to get the things done that need to get done ... instead of having the mindset "It can be done later!"

I thought I'd touch base with you since we seem to have such a similar experience. What surgery did you have and what would recommend to someone just about to go under the knife (in less than 2 weeks).

Thank you for your advice. I also tried melatonin and it didn't work well with me. Just made me sleepy all the time... But I'm thinking about trying valerian. Maybe it would help you too?
