"This is the beginning of a new day. You have been given this day to use as you will. You can waste it or use it for good. What you do today is important because you are exchanging a day of your life for it. When tomorrow comes, this day will be gone forever; in its place is something that you have left behind...let it be something good."
This is a quote that really got to me. You see...I waste A LOT of time! Actually I pretty much waste DAYS at a time!! I know that is horrible. Isn't the first step to recovery admitting you have a problem??
So today I am making a promise. A promise to myself to stop wasting time. Start using every day for something good. So where am I going to start?
Well first of all, I am going to start by getting off the couch and I am going to turn off the computer, and the TV. I am going to turn on the music and do some deep cleaning around the house. And just so you know I am actually doing what I say I'm going to...I am going to post pictures along the way!
More importantly though. I am making a promise to lose weight! I am ashamed to say that I can't actually say that I have "baby" weight to lose. I actually LOST 20 pounds through-out my pregnancy. (in a healthy way...my son apparently didn't like junk food and loved healthy stuff) So all this weight that I gained is pretty much because I eat too much and I don't exercise. I don't really do many activities at all. All this is about to change though! And you all have a front row seat to my transformation. Body & Mind! Each week I am going to have an activity check in post. Talk about what I did for activities and the cardio and other exercises I did.
So, without further ado, I am going to go do some spring cleaning....and then bring my son for a nice long walk. Here is my "before" pic.
