Week 1 was a success, sort of!

Week 1 – I did great with no drinking!  I felt so great all week. The down side is I didn’t get my workouts in last week.  I found myself super busy with the kids, Christmas planning and shopping, planning two birthday parties for the boys, and various other things that I found excuses not to work out. I got in 2 very short workouts and did not drop any weight.  In fact, the scale shows my weight up to 175 :(.  Maybe the bagels and cream cheese my husband decided to serve me for breakfast all week caught up with me.  He is very sweet to bring me breakfast  at 6:15 am as I wearily ready myself for work and the drive to school with the boys, but he sure didn’t understand what I wanted!

This is a new week and I am taking charge!  I want to incorporate more veggies and some fruit, less bread and dairy.  I want a smoothie and a juice to be incorporated daily as well as oats. So this morning, I had a smoothie with half banana, 1/2 cup mango, wheat germ, organic milk, and 1/2 cup steel cut oats in the vitamix.  It was yummy and satisfying!  Lunch was veggie soup (home made)  and veggie salad with ginger dressing and a turkey and cheddar sandwich in a 100 calorie multi grain sandwich round with baby kale on it.  So far so good.  Next I am going to juice cucumber, celery, Apple, carrot and ginger. Then I’m hitting the gym.  No one can change this body except me!

I remember being in the best shape of my life in my mid 20’s. I was very motivated – worked out at 6 am daily and followed a very healthy diet. I was a realtor then and didn’t even need to be up at 6 am, but I was motivated to get into the office and make some money AND be in awesome shape, so I fit it all in.  I need to find this motivation again!  Yes, life’s much more complicated now.  I have 2 boys, 2 dogs, a husband and my mother living with me.  I have 2 jobs – I am a teacher of young children with Autism and I am a realtor. I am a very busy person, but I need to make time for me.

I have high blood pressure and my cholesterol could be better. I know if I drop weight I could be a much healthier person.  And a happier person.  I spend too much time thinking about these things and not enough time in action. It’s time to change!

I want to love every aspect of my life. I love my new life!  2015 is my year!  Let’s make this happen!

I just turned 50 and am ready to make 2020 the year of major change for myself and my family! I am a realtor, an artist and a fitness lover. I am ready to tackle some of those difficult things in life that seem to get put off and put off and see where this new road of focus and intention takes me.
