Look How Far I've Come
Thursday, April 18, 2013
I was at the chiropractor today and he reminded me of how far I've come in the past 4 years.
4 years ago this month, it took me 3 hours just to vacuum my normal-sized living room. I was in bed for two days afterward, to boot. Now I can vacuum and do other chores too. And while I might be a bit sore, I'm not in bed.
After I went to a specialist and got headed on the road to wellness, I started with a 30 min. postpartum exercise video. My kids seriously wanted to call 9-1-1 during my first workout because I was laboring for breath so badly. Now I am doing Zumba for one hour, 5 days a week.
4 years ago I would binge on a whole familiy size bag of Ruffles chips and a jar of french onion dip. Today I had one handful of flax chips and a couple of tablespoons of mango salsa to dip them in.
4 years ago I would have veggies at dinner only. Now I have veggies at every meal, including breakfast.
