Today I am very happy. Most days (99.9%) :) I am very happy, very thankful, very grateful and feel very blessed, but today I'm beaming. 3 months ago, in December I made a big decision. A decision for my health, my well-being. I decided that myself and our family needed to start eating better and I needed to start exercising. Being vegetarians people automatically assume you eat very well- meaning very healthy- vegetables. But when we decided to move out of state we started eating very poorly...we were busy, I was working mad hours...we ate out all the time, we bought cheap quick foods for home and our diets and ourselves suffered for that. Once settled in November I really noticed how bad I felt- sluggish, no energy, funky moods and just didn't feel 'well'. I thought it was perhaps stress, the change of moving. We began eating better, eating at home and I started feeling better. But diet alone wasn't good enough. I needed something more. I started doing a work out program recommended by a friend. I started doing yoga before our decision to move and its amazing how great I felt just dedicating that hour to myself, to my well being. I quickly stopped when we became 'busy'. I don't want to let 'busy' get in the way of my being healthy, my family being healthy. I want to set a good example and be a good role model for my children, eating wise and exercise. It has been 3 months of eating well and 2 months of exercise programs- and I have loss 12 lbs and 12 inches and gone down 2 pant sizes. But more importantly than my physical change is how I feel- energetic, healthy, happy....in this journey our children have been making better choices, trying new foods and exercising more as well. We are on the right track. We are choosing health.
