a couple of years ago. Now I'm working on getting the chub out of those cheeks!
WOW, I just found this old picture of me from 2004. Thanks SO much that I have changed so much :)
I began checking this program out to see what it offers in the way of healthy living.
I've never done anything like this before, but I feel like its high time that I did SOMETHING to keep me focused on being more conscious of my daily choices.
Hopefully, I'll have a great story to write!
I know I need to update this, but I think it is good to be able to look back to where you started. that said...
Sometime in late Jan. or early Feb. of 2011..........
So far (I'm 3 weeks into it at this point), I am doing exactly what I set out to do... PAYING ATTENTION. :) It is easier now to track daily (even in my mind-but I do log everything in) what I am consuming and what I am doing to strengthen and improve ALL parts of me.
This isn't really about weight loss for me, though that is a positive "side-effect". It is about being the Me I want to be. I have had ideas about me, but never the confidence to realize them. Well, that was the past. THIS is the now, and I am doing it every day!!! I can hardly believe that I really am doing it!
Wow! I really AM the awesome person I thought I was! (psssstttt... so are YOU!)
My best to all of you out there :) - Willow
Learning and living a realistically healthy lifestyle
Track, track, track!!! My food, and the bits and pieces of exercise I manage.
I have tried to do too much at one time in the past and ended up throwing my hands up and stopping any progress all together.
Not this time. Small bits add up. A little attention goes a LONG way.
oh, and not judging or beating yourself up constantly turns out to be rather helpful! *bright smile*
It occurs to me that I may not say much about me. So - I live in Wilmington, NC. I am 46. I work as a legal assistant with a real estate attorney. I have 1 dog, and 1 cat at this time. I pretend I own my house, despite what the bank says. I really rather like my life. :)
My property is a Certified Wildlife Habitat, though I live in the suburbs (it doesn't take that much, look into it and do it!!!). I have 2 VERY close, ridiculous friends ("my girls") that I love with everything I am, and a whole host of things to be grateful for. I tend more on the new age/pagan side of the thermometer, and I like a lot of private time.
There, that was pretty random, yes??? LOL!
forgot to say, I laugh at EVERYTHING!!! I actually think I'm funny (hah!), and I curse like a sailor (except at work or in front of children).
Have fun! ;) - Willow
