So what does that title mean anyway? Well, I turned 39 yesterday.
Since March I have been trying to get myself ready for the summer and for a very active vacation. I lost 9 lbs. I was running, tracking calories & giving it my full effort. Then my mom got very sick in May and I was derailed. I let myself use the excuse, I'm too busy to food shop or cook, too exhausted from worrying & driving to exercise. Well, I gained half of it back and stopped moving. Mom is still sick and I really just need to learn how to better mange everything.
I was hoping to have a head start on my 39th year.
This year I would like to:
achieve & maintain a healthy weight by the time I'm 40
eat clean/healthy foods and like it not because I feel like I have to
be more active, exercise and like it ( i do believe that's possible)
belly dance again (and not feel embarrassed about my appearance)
learn to make time to take care of myself and not let taking care of others get in the way
run a 5k, and run weekly period!
sleep 7 hours a night (preferably 8)
there are so many things I have let my weight get in the way of doing, I need to start living again!
I would like to enter my 40th year feeling strong, energetic and proud.
Today I have tracked all my food, I have not exercised. I am torn between going to visit my mom or just going home. This is where the trouble lies...
