I loved this little blog. I remembered I started a scrap book about empowered women and men when I was feeling really low...I forgotten about that, I am going to dig it up. So glad you wrote this, so glad I read it.
I just read this and am going to print it out for my own "scrapbook". I love it!! I will be a mother of 4 in just a few short months, and while I'm excited for another baby, I'm dreading adding that chaos into my already overwhelmed world. So, I am taking these last few months and working on that control and well being that will not only make me healthier, but my family as well.
I loved your article. I can relate to so much of what you say. WHat was particularly meaningful to me was you short and simple goals. You were able to articulate things that I want for myself but somehow have never been able to write down. I also love you action steps. Scheduling relax time early when you are able to enjoy it is a great suggestion, and you feel good scrapbook is wonderful. Thanks so much for sharing!
What a great inspiration you are! It is especially encouraging that your main focus is better health and that you stuck to better habits and achieved this. Would love to know more about the scrapbook , it sounds like a perfect tool to use to keep movitation levels up! Thank you for sharing and God Bless!

I'm PROUD of you & I know you felt on TOP OF THE WORLD after your hiked up the hill! It doesn't take much to improve OUR health, JUST DO IT!...even if you just WALK for 20/30 minutes a day. It took US a minute to get out of SHAPE & It will take FEW more minutes/hours to get US back in SHAPE, but it is SO WORTH THE SWEAT!
I'm a 50 yr old Africa-American women with NO HEALTH ISSUES & I can't be prouder of myself...I changed my eating/workout habits 10 years ago & I even started dancing for JESUS(dance ministry)....I'M LOVING THE SECOND PART OF MY LIFE!
