So I officially started my healthy lifestyle changes on Monday Sept 1. Yes for some reason I always do better if I start on the 1st or a Monday, and this time it was extra perfect, bc It was the 1st of the month on a Monday ;) So I have been doing pretty awesome actually, eating wise. I am cutting all refined sugar and white flour out of my life. This is hard for me since I LOVE sweets. But I know that they are awful for my weight, and most of all the health of my body. I have been reading so much about different foods and how it greatly effects your body, causing illness and disease. I want to be as healthy as I can be, I want to take care of what God gave me the best I can, and be here for a long time if I can have anything to do with it!
I do need to make my running/excercise a priority. My life is so crazy with 5 kids and going back to work (part-time), my husband is in school, and working, and i have 3 teen girls, 1 2 yr old boy and one sweet little 2 month old. So finding time to excercise has been challanging for me. I figured the best time for me to excercise is EARLY in the morning, I will have to get up at 4:30am to excercise. I have done this before, i am just finding it so much harder bc I am so tired and get very broken up sleep at night. And I know that sleep is important for optimal health too! I do want to train for a half marathon in March. I want to start lifting, which I have never done, I have always just stuck to cardio. So baby steps, I can do this, I just dont want to overwhelm myself!
oooo and I have lost 5lbs since Sept 1.
