Today is a new day! Forget yesterday or a month ago or years ago. Today is here and this will be the first day I decide make a big change.
Yes, I know the new year is only a couple of days away. This would be the prime time for me to set a lofty resolution to myself. The problem is that I would hide it there in my heart that I might not show others how I stray off of its good intentions.
This day I confess to you that in all my life, I have never put true conscious effort into the health of my body for any length of time where it became a habit. In my late 30’s I noticed how my energy was in a state that it seemed to beg me to just sit because even though the calories had been consumed, there was no energy to use. I didn’t sit down. I had 6 kids and fought through the daily fatigue.
I also noticed this year how my skin on my face looked much older. I did not like that. And everytime I went to the bathroom to do anything each glance in the mirror reminded me of that.
I had almost forgotten about my health.
Today is the day that I proclaim to you that I will no longer put off the task of committing myself to getting back a healthier me. I truly think by making this public, to my readers, I will be fully committed to a healthier way of eating and living. I may share advise on parenting and being a mom on my blog, but this area of healthy eating is where I fail.
How will I do it?
Tag along with me here on my blog as I post daily updates, expert guest posts, weigh-in’s, fand EVERYTHING I learn that can benefit you and your families. I can almost guarantee I will head to my laptop to post dramatic “cry-in’s” when I want to go back to whipping up a batch of cookies, but know it will throw me back into Processed Foodland.
As I take this journey I need accountability. Why have I not thought of that before? Knowing I must share each day with all you friends may be just what I need to remember my health! I need you so I hope you will find me on Facebook and Twitter.
I welcome your advise, testimony and new commitments you are making yourself.
