I have always considered myself to be, for the most part, healthy. I don't eat out a lot and I cook most of the food I eat, but recently I realized several things, 1) just because I cook doesn't mean it's good for me, 2) I need to manage my time better, 3) I need to start exercising again, and 4) just because I am thin does not mean I am healthy!
I am not sure why I started realizing these things. It could be that I will be 29 this year. It could be that I have two kids and a secret fear they could get diabetes or childhood obesity (I know this is unlikely but it's always lingering in the back of my mind). It could be that I have seen several people on Facebook embrace a healthy life style and I want to follow suit. Or it could be the fact that my mom passed away at a young age and life is too precious to waste. I really don't know, but I do know that things have to change. I know this will be a huge adjustment for me and my family, but I am ready to take on the challenge.
Some things I will be trying out include Clean Eating, exercise DVD's, and cleaning and purging my house.
Wish me luck and stay with me on this new chapter!
