Back again! To a brand new start!

Friday, February 21, 2014

So this month starts the beginning of my entire family's new life. We are slowly changing our eating patterns to that of the Eat for Health plan. We are cutting out processed foods and focusing on real whole plant foods and plant based foods. I have been working very hard to change own taste preferences and it is working. I am eating things now that I never would have even tried as a child

My whole family is embarking on this journey together. I am determined to cure my husbands migraines and also get rid of the depression that we both tend to suffer from. I know it can be done, it is just in the follow through. I also know the weight will come off as I continue to eat right. I have noticed that i don't forget things as often as I used to and I am not nearly as tired as I used to be.

As soon as I can get my two kids into some sort of schedule I am planning to get a solid exercise schedule in place to help reach my weight releasing goal. I am feeling pretty good about this change in the lives of my family. I want us all to be as healthy as can be. We are embarking on a permanent change for the rest of our lives and I know we can do this!

    Erin, I was totally thinking of you the other day when I was reading an article. I hope you don't take this wrong so I am going to start from the beginning. I know that we are not supposed to compare ourselves to others, but I have always envied your massive hard core workout style. I will grant you that MOST of my thoughts of your feed were a healthy admiration that you were squeezing in 90 minutes of crazy hard workouts with two kids. It has been a big kick in my excuse making rear. On the other hand I frequently got done with an in calorie range with walk/runs and then wrongfully stack up my little results and sigh...perhaps I should go the Erin route. Then I read something about lifestyle changes on a success story or something like that and they advised to only do things you were willing to do for the rest of your life. 90 hardcore minutes a day is awesome for quick results, but there is no way that I could sustain that. I don't know how anyone could. I quit beating myself up about not going hardcore. Now I'm not saying you shouldn't do the workouts that inspire and interest you, but what I am saying is that I can relate to your new approach. It is a sustainable change that will give big results over time and you know how time flies! I'm saving my SparkGoodies to get you a new wardrobe when you hit your new century and I think it is going to happen very soon with your new plan. Let us know if you have a new target date! I am working toward the goal of a 5k with my nephew in mid-April.
