Here I am Yet again
Wednesday, September 03, 2008
So here I am yet again. I have more hope that I will stick with this because I have hit that wall of desperation. I Know that I have to lose weight in order to keep my health. I bought a copy of You Are What You Eat this weekend and while she is a little too crazy for me I know that I can incorporate so many more fruits vegetables, exercise and healthy habits in general into my life than I have been.
I know that I have pretty much let everything go since Noah was born in April, but now that he is becoming more manageable (or I am better trained) I really can focus on our health as a family I not only have my health to think of but I have to get into a healthier frame of life so that Noah doesn't have to go through these battles- life is tough enough without this constant struggle with weight.
And it isn't like I don't enjoy being active, once I get going I feel so much better. I have a plethora of belly dance DVDs and a Y membership to help me out but all I really seem to want to do is sleep. I honestly think that better nutrition might help that problem but I have to get active and work through the constant exhaustion.
I have all the control here, and now that I am mostly a stay at home mom I should be able to do this. I just want to feel in control again
