I started the Advocare 24 day challenge a week ago. This along with new medication for my thyroid and a gym membership at Planet Fitness, I'm feeling the best I've felt in sometime. I am quickly waking up to the reality that I will have to make choices everyday of what I put in my mouth for the rest of my life. I'm not getting any younger, and as I've gotten over 30, I find it harder to get the weight off and do what it takes to stay healthy. In reality, it's not that hard. It's really lazy to give into that chocolate cupcake, Starbucks coffee, or candy bar. I know that making the right choices will keep me on the path of health that I want and I'm determined to stay committed to it. I'm really looking forward to breaking the 200 mark and entering some races later in the year. I've never been a good runner, but I do enjoy the 5k and Half Marathons I've competed in the past. I'm on my way and I'm feeling good doing it. I've been very fortunate to have an amazing support system at home as well in preparing healthy meals and staying on track. Here's to health and never going back to where I was!
