Last night was a little rough for me. I was super tired and the only time I could exercise was after 7:30 pm and I was not interested. I did Cardio X and I felt like it was the first time I had ever exercised. I was all uncoordinated, stiff and sore. It wasn't pretty but, I did it. It doesn't have to be pretty, you just have to do it. Toward the end my littlest son, Christopher was holding my hand :-)
On another note, I wanted to talk briefly about McDonalds (or any fast food place). It used to be that if I used to eat a lot of fast food (at least 2-3 times a week). I could never stop and get the kids food without getting something for myself. That has been changing for me in the last few months. I am finding I can stop now and not get anything for myself or even "snack" off the kids food. I know the fast food isn't the best for them but, we do get it from time to time for them. I will get it for the twins after therapy as a treat for all their hard work. They love cheeseburgers! At first I thought I was "missing out" because I couldn't have any. Now, it is different. I feel like I am doing something good for myself and I am not missing out on the 1000 calorie meals!
Healthy living is a process and journey. I used to think it was some destination I was going to reach. I am seeing better now that healthy eating, like life, is a process and you never reach a point and say, "ok I'm done, I can stay here." You can't be stagnate in life, you are either moving forward or going backward. Let's make the steps forward more than the steps back!
