2016: Day 25 - My Family is Safe & I am Back on Track

Monday, January 25, 2016

I took yesterday off and was, apart from errands, a couch potato. I also found out that my family in Virginia is ok. They are snowed in, but everyone is warm and safe. Very thankful!

I am still having anxiety about walking and am not confident, but...I logged 10,127 steps for 3.82 miles. I will also meet my water goal.

Tomorrow, I need to find time to submit an expense report. I got approval for reimbursement. That repayment will be very handy when the bill comes in!

I read a blog today by a Sparkpeople member (I've forgotten her name), where she shared that she gave up and sat on the couch. Then she remembered a conversation with one of her children. The child reminded her that she needs to exercise because she's diabetic. Remembering that conversation got her off the couch, back with the dvd and she finished her session thinking all the while about all the reasons she has for taking this path.

I have a laundry list of reasons. Health, appearance, quality of life, photos, special events...children I want to be with....

What are your reasons for choosing a healthier lifestyle?!

    Happy to hear your family is safe and good job with your walking. Be careful, though! I had a fall in mid-November and I'm still not completely recovered from the injury to my ankle. My reasons are health, family, appearance. Have a wonderful week. :)
