I just the Mamavation Sisterhood at the craziest point in my life to date. Work is insane, we are trying to get our house on the market immediately, we are traveling, taking care of a 14 month old, and trying to plan for the upcoming move out of state. We have been eating crap and not working out. Today on my four hour drive I listened to several podcasts including a few of Pete Cohens and the one where he interviewed Leah. Doing so inspired me to get serious and make steps in the right direction and to put my health as a priority. Several things that were said inspired me - but what makes the most sense is when Leah said she started her weight loss/get healthy lifestyle by trying to lose 5 lbs. That is such a manageable number; not overwhelming. Even right now in this crazy time, I am going to take a deep breath and try to keep things in perspective -
- I need to be healthy and make healthy choices no matter how busy things are.
- Until we get the house on the market, I need to eek out at least 30 minutes a day to exercise. Not only do I need it physically, I also need it for stress relief.
- I need to stock the house up with healthy foods. Fresh fruits and vegetables and meals that can be prepared super fast and easy, but are healthy!
- I need to remember that while I do not have control of so much in my life right now, I do have control of what goes into my body.
-I will not get overwhelmed, but focus on my goal of losing 5 lbs.
I am joining some of the other Mamavation Moms in doing Jillian Michaels 30 Day Shred, it starts tomorrow and I am excited! It is a workout I can do from home and is only 30ish minutes, so I have no excuses!
Hope to join Mamavation TV to see what Dr. Lynn has to say about sex ;)
