It's Time... This can mean so many different things.
Today, for me, it means - It's TIME FOR CHANGE! I am finally READY and MOTIVATED! :)
So, the biggest reason I have behind my motivation is the fact that I will be having surgery in 2 months. It's not something that I really want done, but in order for me to be in less pain, it's needed. I have decided that I am ready for things to change. I am ready to start eating healthy again and exercising. This are two things that are not easy.
food. *sigh* I love eating the crap food - you know, the fried, salty, sugary goodness. What I have come to realize is this :
I may *love* bad food, but I love myself even more!
I am ready to be the healthy person I need to be. I want to be around for my children. I want to be able to play with them, to go on nature hikes, and to dance around with them, without getting out of breath. Last night I had an ephiphany - one that I did NOT like - I walked for the first time in a LONG time, for 30 minutes, pushing my 28lb 2 year old in a stroller. I thought I was going to pass out. 10 mins in and I was already out of breathe and sweating like crazy. The sweat part didn't bother me as much(it was 90+% humidity out) as the out of breathe part did. At the beginning of this year, when I was consistently working out, I could walk 60 minutes without dying. It just shows how quickly things can get out of control when you choose to stop caring.
I am ready for this challenge and new phase of my life. READY, SET, GO!
