Hmmmm....how to break the ice before I share with you my biggest struggle. Um, yeah. I guess there isn't an easy or clever way to put it. So. *Deep Breath* I need to lose about 100 pounds. Yeah. And I'm starting now. And.... I felt like I outta "go public" about it because I need the accountability and you might just be inspired. :)
The why? Because I want to be healthy. Because it is my responsibility to take care of my body. Because I love J and want to grow old with him. Because I want to be there for my boys as they grow into men. And because I just know that there will be *girl* grandbabies and I want to be around for that.
The plan? Eat less and exercise more.
The plan for the plan? (you know what I mean right?) Writing down what I eat, so I can keep track better and walking the dog every morning and supplementing with extra workouts when I can. And drinking lots of water.
The mantra? "Choose Life. Choose Life. Choose Life!" This is a spiritual journey for me. I'll share more about that in the future perhaps. Please pray for me as I take the first steps towards overcoming an attitude of self reliance and self worship.
I hope to blog about my journey every monday as part of Motivation Monday (through Inspired to Action...one of my favorite blogs!) I know that Tree Shadow Farm is a journal of our family adventures, but this is going to be a big part of it for awhile. Thanks for supporting me!
