Baby steps.

Thursday, May 23, 2013

I'm slowly easing into this whole workout/eat healthy/get healthy thing. I started eating better with serious intent on Tuesday, and was shocked this morning by the 760 calorie burrito I ate for lunch yesterday after taking one of my sons to the doctor. I had thought it looked healthier than most of the other things on the menu. Lesson learned: never judge a food by its picture. But it is a learning process, after all. Today I'm back on track with 30 minutes on my elliptical this morning. I'm considering taking the boys for a walk in the park in a bit, but I'm not sure yet. Mainly because of the cold one has and is promising to share with the other. We'll see. If not, I've already met my goal for today. Tomorrow I'm adding pilates for strength, though I wonder if I could count carrying the boys around. They're almost a combined 30 lbs now, sans car seats. I'll have to look into that, and possibly create a new method for weight lifting. Baby lifts, anyone?

    I am sure some of the Sparkers are using their babies as lift, you should browse the SparkTeams ans the message boards =)

You know, one thing I wish I had been told in the start was : keep coming, it works. Like everything, dedication is the key as well as forgivness. Keep coming, keep pushing. Baby steps rock !

    Congrats on getting started. That's the hardest part! It is easiest to focus on one small thing at a time--master it, then move on to adding the next. If it weren't for baby steps I'd have given up already!
