Two weeks ago I decided to put my health first for the sake of my brain and my body. I wanted to focus on what I was eating and take a hard look at my non-existent activity level.
At first it really didn’t go well. I started exercising, swam nightly in our pool and made an effort to stay mobile but still jammed every piece of food made by man in my face.
All. The. Food.
My eating habits were horrendous and it took gaining two lbs to see that I needed to change my portions and my love of all meals ice cream if I wanted to see results.
Week two went much better with my tracking everything I ate, choosing the healthier options, snacking within reason, and staying away from the ice cream for every meal.
Even though I still think ice cream is a perfectly acceptable meal option.
I started to look forward to my evening activity, planned meals, and was ferociously dedicated to My Fitness Pal App (I’m not paid to say that, I just love it).
And the best part?
My brain is loving it. I’m outside more, enjoying the weather and excited about the changes I’m seeing.
But the key to this whole thing??
I have a great group of women who are supporting me and cheering me on, something I rely on especially when the junk food, darkness, and doubt start calling my name.
Currently, my brain is happy.
And I am doing this.
I’m staying focused, making the right choices, and dedicating myself to health!
