There has been a lot going on in my life in the last few months that have mentally and emotionally taken me out of the game when it comes to my health and wellness. Sure I could sit here and list excuse after excuse, but what good does that do?
I need to get back to focusing on me and not worry about what others may think of me and my time for ME!! There are those that I have seen snub their nose at those that get sitters, or leave the little ones at home so they can go work out with comments like "I live for my kids, they are my top priority". Well, sorry darling, you aren't "living" for your kids if you put your own health and wellness last. Shortening the years of your time on earth by sitting around, being immobile, eating whatever you want isn't "living" anyway. It's "dying".
I have always struggled with having an overabundance of knowledge in the health and wellness, and as I'm currently going for my Bachelor of Science in Nutrition Science and going for my Masters in Health Education, it's all about executing what I know, and what I have learned. It's difficult and I am human. I'm flawed, I have insecurities, I have distractions, but at the end of the day, I'm also accountable for what I choose to do and not to do.
No one ever says that getting fit and healthy and staying fit and healthy is easy, but it gets easier as it becomes a lifestyle and not just a "diet". I need to start making some small goals and achieving them and start back on my path to wellness. I need to get my A1C in check and my cholesterol lowered, and start to focus on meditation and relaxation techniques as well to help me get through school, mommy-ing and all my other obligations and responsibilities.
There is a friend that has started her own blog recently and I look forward to watching her journey. Check Ashley out over at Getting Fit & Staying Healthy!!
Have a great weekend!!
