I know I can live a healthy lifestyle. I've done it before. I need to do it again.
I have become squishy and uncomfortable. While working my way through nursing school I ate on the run, stressed, didn't get enough sleep, and rarely exercised.
Now that school is completed I need to get into a routine. I need to find a job, get my excess weight off, get in shape, and look like a healthy person. If I'm going to expect patients to listen to me when I tell them what they need to do to take proper care of themselves I need to look the part.
So today it needs to start. I have purchased some motivational books and a journal, joined SparkPeople.com, and made the commitment to become the person I want to be.
For Christmas I am giving myself a new person. I think that is a gift my family will like too.
