Drastic Measures...

Thursday, June 23, 2016

So, this morning was a wake up call. My son had an endocrine appointment, and was diagnosed with a disease of his adrenal gland. He now has to be injected with medication monthly. Also as a treatment, he has to keep a strict healthy diet...I was doing so well earlier this year, then summer hit and I kind of fell off the wagon with my eating and exercising habits. But it's not about me now. It's really about him. I must provide him the nutrition that he needs, exercise, and continue with medication. I am scared. I feel like I failed him when I stopped my healthy lifestyle...well this morning, right after his doctors appt, we went straight to the food market and bought ALL healthy food, came home, emptied the fridge of the bad, and filled it with washed fruits and vegetables, yogurt, lean meats, and much more. I printed him out a workout for kids, although he plays in a competitive baseball travel league, to supplement his exercise. I'm gonna do it with him, every day. We can do this together. I am going to do everything in my power to make sure my son's health is in order. This is priority over anything and everything. I don't care how much meal prepping, cooking, or money I have to spend. This isn't just about looking good in a bikini anymore, this is the wellbeing of an innocent child, the person I love most in the entire world. I'm so proud of how he chose his foods and listened to his doctors orders. He asked questions, and wants to eat properly. So now I'm feeling scared but determined to live a life full of balanced nutritional choices, proper exercise, and just loving my son to pieces.
