motivation , me and my family

Saturday, February 23, 2013

I have been away for some time for one reason or another, the big one is not getting much privacy since the in laws moved in while we fix their house so they can live in it until their older age.

This is for us as well as then but it has taken a long time to adjust. They have been with us a year or so and the end is in sight.

Many of you will recognise what I have really said; I have just excused my self yet again for taking responsibility for myself. I hav just had my birthday and my plan was to start to 'get back on track' afterwards. I never start just after christmas as winter is miserable enough as it is; another excuse of course. So this morning I logged in to record my meals and looked at the excercise videos.

Well I started to do so. Then I thought i can't do this. I need some motiovation. So I went straight for the motivation pages. What I read there had just lifted my miserable approach and I am about to take a walk. However I just wanted to note light bulb moment. I wonder if my attitude is making my daughter the way she is.

My daughter is the same shape as me and is also over weight. She loves the computer and won't come off, she loves that her friends like her for her softness and cuddliness. I wonder if these are also excuses and that I am letting her be like this by my actions as well as my attitude. In my home I am the boss. What I do (or don't do) influences what goes on with everyone. I am worried for my daughter and her future health. The same goes for my husband and his health. Hhe does no excercise apart from walk to and from his car (15mins a day) and do conservation work every few weeks. We both do this and we both need more.

Right off for my walk and to plot and scheme.

    Maybe you can set an example for a healthy lifestyle by what you do with yourself at this time. It can start with one family member taking care of herself. Glenn
