I have spent many years of my life attempting to get healthy. It has always been a struggle to figure out the balance between a healthy life and unhealthy dieting. I have learned to control my eating and make better choice for my body. This last break from the plan was due to illness. It took sometime to figure out who I was again and to find the strength to try this path again.

Well here I am, trying again to convert unhealthy ways in to healthy ways. So far so good. It seems that when you get older it is easier to understand the need for such changes. There is not a constant battle within me to eat this or that. Its like my mind and body have already accepted this.

I thought that releasing sugar , salt and carbs would just about kill me. However, it has been rather pleasant. I find myself not craving to much and when I am seriously craving something. I just let myself have it, its so much easier than beating myself up for one choice. That’s that old diet mentality kicking in. Telling me that one mistake kills the entire process. So far I have only craved bubbles, that’s my code word for Soda. So I allowed myself a diet 7up. Only drank half of it and that was it.

I guess my best advice to anyone who reads this would be it’s a journey to good health. You will make mistakes, life will get in the way, and you will fall down. Its what you do when you get up that changes things. How you respond, that makes the difference. No matter what happens with your body or your eating continue to strive for better, continue to make a better you. There is nothing to wait for now is the time and tomorrow might be to late.

So here we go again, and I am more than motivated. #readyforsuccess
