I only can only go UP from here! I posted this quote below because well that is what I’ve been doing for the past 4 years! When we got pregnant with Micaiah I was in prime health, feeling great and in the best shape of my adult life. However, I gained over 100 lbs with the medicines/shots and pregnancy in general during those 9 months. Since delivering him I have yoyo’d probably several times each year, which has been very frustrating. We now have baby #3 and Micaiah is 4 so no more excuses for this momma. I can’t say it’s baby weight anymore because that baby is a 4 year old now 😉 I can’t make any more excuses, even if they are legit reasons for health issues or struggles such as PCOS, Asthma, family genetic etc. EXCUSES STOP HERE! I am the only one who can change the course of my health and if I want to make sure and stop the chain of heart disease, type 2 diabetes and more that I get from my family, I have to start NOW and it has to become a way of life for me! A friend who I look up to for health/fitness and who is a momma of all boys as well told me that “A BODY AT REST WANTS TO STAY AT REST BUT A BODY IN MOTION WANTS TO STAY IN MOTION” so she makes sure to never go more than 3 days without working out. I just LOVED that tip and it really stuck with me! She gave me the advice of breaking a habit takes 22 days so you have to commit to changing your mentality of not doing a diet but just making these good life changes and working out for 22 days and then hopefully it will start to become more of a second nature type of thing! So that is what I am going to do!
After I get off here, I am going to spend some time with Jesus, start homeschool and then WORKOUT! I actually have several amazing DVD workout programs for home already that I just haven’t used in a LONG time and I’m excited to start them back up and this time not stop! So i’ll be switching back and forth between these below! What has been your best mindset tip or thing you’ve done with keeping a healthy and fit/active lifestyle?
