In Grandma Heaven and a change of mindset
Wednesday, August 20, 2014
Here I am in Seattle again. I left the middle of May when the twins were 7 weeks old. They are now 4 1/2 months old and, I must say, absolutely adorable! Loving the time with their older sisters as well, ages 3 and 4. It's crazy but it is a bit of heaven for this grandma!
I started my streak to check in with SP about 3 weeks before I left here last May. I typically struggle when I can't stay on a routine, and I would easily slide into a downward spiral. In taking care of my then 2 and 4 year old grand daughters while my daughter had to stay on modified bed rest, I had gotten to the point that my size 14 pants did not zip up. Big problem.... I was miserable! It was time to turn it around. So that started my streak to check in with SP. Today I made it today 134. I have donated all my size 14 pants and I now fit nicely into my size 10 capri pants.... blows me away to think about it.
What really blows me away is my mindset change. I feel great! I can't even remembering ever feeling this good. Not just the weight and fitness change, but not struggling with food. I was so tired of that "food fight" and the relief of not being in that battle is indescribable. Am I perfect? NO! Do I slip up? YES! But it's just not the same as before. I know what works for me, and I just keep putting one foot in front of the other, and I'm not going backwards anymore!
I have so very much to be grateful for. I have many reasons to take care of myself, and here in Grandma Heaven I have four reasons that I hug and love on each day that need a healthy grandma to set a good example for them.
