getting back at it

Friday, March 01, 2013

been doing pretty well this past week considering how busy it has been, life has a way of throwing curve balls but luckily i have been prepared. i have not been making the best food choices lately but after falling off the wagon a while from being sick and trying to mix school and homelife plus being a second mom to my nephews... its taken me a bit of time to get back into healthy habits and i find i am in no need to rush if it is something that is going to be a life habit. 2 out of 3 nephews are playing flag football this season so my weeks have been hectic practice runs and scrimmage games but i love watching them play and seeing them get better each time. Also gives me extra motivation to run around with them and get them moving as well as much as i didnt want to be a role model i find myself being one regardless since they watch what i eat and how i choose exercise over staring at the tv . I almost miss the lazy days but at the same time i can no longer sleep in since im usually up at 6 in the morning and generally feel unproductive if im not doing anything.... i've been using the saying the secret to getting ahead is getting started. That usually trumps any excuses about not wanting to workout because even if i only do a little bit.. its alot more than nothing. I actually wake up and look forward to the day i see the sunrise and its like starting out anew each time. I also planted a few seeds and have little sproutlings to tend to which honestly makes me happy to see things grow and change as each day passes. My mindset is in the right place for change and motivation to keep moving forward.... i look forward to challenges and the exhausted but satisfied feeling after a good jog and stretch to find creative ways and recipes that make me happy and healthy =)
