A New Year A New Day.....A New Way!

Sunday, January 04, 2009

2008 did not end the way I expected it to. My DH, who I thought was very healthy, ended up have emergency open heart surgery. Now we are both starting a new way of life, dieting is no more hit and miss....this must be done. There is no way I want to end up going through everything my DH has so I am vowing to make 2009 our year.
I am starting with SparkPeople Bootcamp and I WILL get in my 10 min work out everyday and 30 min of walking or other cardio exercise. I will track my food, drink my water and eat healthy every day.
My goal this month is to lose 5 pounds and I will do it.

During this time I will also be walking with DH as he builds up his energy and he gets stronger. We will be working together on a low sodium diet and maintaining a healthy caloric intake.

I am hoping by starting this year with this Bootcamp, it will be the beginning of a healthy year.

    I was just thinking about sending you a message to see how your hubby was doing. I'm glad that the surgery went well and you and he are changing your lifestyle to a healthier one. You can rejoin our challenge anytime you like. I miss you.

Take care.

Sorry to hear about your DH. Take good care of you AND him. Sometimes it takes a wake=up call like this, to MAKE us get our rear in gear. I'm sending my prayers your way as you work on this new way of life. After all, it is our LIFE that is nost important, and we have to make it a healthy one.

    Lenore - We can do the bootcamp together. I needed something simple to get my butt into gear and I am hoping this is it! Please remember that we are here if you need anything. All my best wishes are being sent your way.
