Busy. Happy. Healthy.


I promised myself. This time would be different. Workout gear. Check. Water bottle. Check. Walking shoes. Check. I’m ready to get at it. And I begin, daily. For a few weeks, even months, things go great. But then something happens. It could be the kids, work, hubby, I get sick, you name it – there’s always something. And I let it throw me off course. It could be a week. It could be a month. It’s a vicious cycle that seems to require too much time and effort to correct. I’ve got too much going on to deal with it. However, instead of repeating the cycle, this time I’ve chosen to make decisions enabling me to be healthy the smart way. The right way.

Results will outweigh the pain (I think) . . .

It’s time. We’ve got to make some radical changes in the way we eat in our household. It’s not bad right now, actually. We eat out maybe twice per month, always wanting to make sure the boys have a homecooked meal with vegetables. We have a lot of fruit in the house, and often eat it as snacks. But … we also eat a lot of dairy (I love cheese), a lot of bread, and a lot of other snacks besides fruit … (borderline choco-holic, thank you very much). But some things have got to change….

I’m seeing more and more allergies crop up. And the doctor couldn’t diagnose the source of my son’s stomach pain… so he was given a prescription instead. I may not know the exact source, but I sure know a good place to start.

Pray for me. I love meat. And I really like sweets. Not going cold turkey. But something’s gotta give . . .
