Wowee – what a week! I’m not naïve enough to believe this prep was going to come without challenges; I knew life would throw some stuff at me because that’s what it does, I didn’t expect it to come so quickly though. I’ve said it a thousand times, and I’ll say it until the end of time, with whatever you are doing, you have to know your ‘why’.
I, like many, am a walking contradiction. I hate garlic but love garlic bread. I hate onions but love pickled onions. I’m incredibly easy-going but need to know all the details before I make a decision. I’m laid back but also a bit of a perfectionist.
I went from active and eating well in high school to inactive and eating like a slob in college. I didn't think my weight would change so easily but it did. I would work out and eat healthier snacks but nothing changed, my weight kept growing. It wasn't until recently that I found my trigger. Sodas. It didn't dawn on me how much soda I drank in college. I was spending money on cherry cola and sprite from the campus machines like clockwork. I continued to drink sodas regularly after I walked away from college and my weight continued to climb. I felt sluggish and my mental health took a drastic nosedive. I'd go from not eating much to binging and it was at that moment that I realized how close I was to developing an eating disorder so I knew I had to make a change. I started with sodas and cut them out drastically with the exception of Sprite when I'm sick. Here's how I began my journey to being healthy.
Winter is almost here, and you know how we don’t tend to take too much care of our looks during the colder months of the year. We usually eat more, drink lots of hot chocolate, go to the gym less... Maybe because it’s not warm outside and it is just perfect for resting in our bedroom, tucked in in our favorite fuzzy blanket, binge-watching all the good shows we can find. But doing all this also means we are not doing anything to keep fit, and we can regret it later when our body is not prepared for the summer. So, to later not feel bad about your appearance, let’s see how you can maintain your summer body over winter!
A few years back my husband and I went on a hike to a local water fall. Our oldest son got the two trails mixed up so he and two of our grandchildren ended up on the easy trail, why my husband and I along with the other grandchild went up the rough trail. We climbed straight up the mountain, scaling ledges that overlooked a 20 foot drop into water. We walked on steep paths, climbed boulders and several times did not think we would make it. At least twice, my husband said he could not go any further and encouraged us to go on without him. Both times our middle grandson Dre, told his grampy that he could do it and asked him to keep going.
