Living is why

Sunday, March 01, 2015

This past Friday at work, the American Heart Association came in and did a presentation for our company. The representative talked about how 4 out of 5 deaths from heart related issues could be prevented with lifestyle modifications. 4 out of 5! WOW.

That really hit home with me. I have a 6 year old daughter and I really want to be around for her always, but I really need to make some changes to ensure that I am healthy enough to be with her, and to do the things I want to with her. Right now my weight is challenging me to live the life that I want to live. I just don't feel as good as I know is possible for me to feel. I have slacked with exercise, and eating recently--largely due to work being super busy. I have to take control and priority of my life.

I'm super excited that I'm a part of the Grey Wolves weight loss challenge for the spring. It's not me competing against anyone else--but rather me competing with myself to be healthier at the end of the challenge than I was at the beginning of the challenge.

Today is March 1st--the perfect time for me to begin again again. One step forward two steps back is still progress!

Let's do this!

    Kyndra, thank you for posting the statistics with us. Like you, I sometimes find myself thinking about longevity and being here for my family. My daughters are all grown but I also have 3 teenage granddaughters. I too want to be here for them, for my husband, for my friends, for ME.
    You are also right on the money that you are competing against you, nobody else. Your success is for you, my success for me. Sometimes we have to pick up where we left off, I don't like to view it as starting over, life happens, mistakes happen, we just keep going forward until we work it all out! You are right Kyndra....we can do this, we will do this!
