Indulging in a Healthy Lifestyle!

Wednesday, December 02, 2009

I have had some really tough past months! Raising kids is tough, then having 5 of which 3 are on the spectrum and 2 have medical issues. Daily challenges are normal in my house.
I am tired exhausted so much of the time due to the STRESS! I am eating healthy and exercising!
It has not been a particularly easy day either!

In fact, right now, I feel on top of the world! I am indulging in health! It feels so good! I indulged in some healthy sprinting and soccer play with my Border Collies...this is a 3-4 time a day thing with them no matter the weather! It doesn't bother me at all...I love it!!
I indulged in healthy eating...Yum! In fact right now I am having a wonderful Plain Fat Free Greek Yogurt with plenty of protein and my Probiotic Attune bars that are really helping me. I add some fruit and what a wonderful indulgent treat!! I am almost done and feel so good about this snack because I am NOT full! I am satisfied.
I indulged in some exercise today..made that treadmill beg for mercy! It was wonderful!!
Indulgences aren't negative...but we seem to label them that way! Change your label...I have!
I am going to keep indulging in things that are good for me, healthy for me!

I hope you join me!

Hugs to everyone!! Cathy

    Hi Cathy, What a positive outlook. You sound like you are doing great. You truly have a new healthy lifestyle. It is so important to take care of ourselves so we can meet the needs of our families. I have been away from Spark for a couple of months. Our computer died. Your blog was the first thing I read. It makes me so glad to be back. Take care, Mary
